We live in a culture where spirituality cannot be separated from generosity. The needs of our communities and of the world are impossible to ignore. The teachings of Jesus implore us to give to those in need and to commit ourselves to an ethic of generosity. The scriptures say that God loves a cheerful giver (2 Cor 9:7) not just because the church’s needs are met, but because God’s heart is made glad when we depend on him to provide for us.

Under Old Testament law, 10% of a person’s income was to be given as a “tithe”. Now under grace, we believe that we are free from the law, and we are encouraged to use the 10% as a guideline or starting point for giving to the local church, with any other offerings beyond that.
