So two good things will result from this ministry of giving: the needs of the believers (in Jerusalem) will be met, and they will joyfully express their thanks to God.
- 2 Corinthians 9:12
Giving is something we do as believers to demonstrate our faith in God, as well as our commitment to see the local church make an impact in the lives of others.
Giving a percentage of your income to the church can be a fearful experience when doing so for the first time. The Bible instructs us to give a tithe, or tenth of income to God as a sign that we acknowledge Him first in everything that we do (Leviticus 27:30, Deuteronomy 14:23). If you have never experienced the life-changing power of giving, we encourage you to start today!
