Frequently Asked Questions

What does our church believe about money?
God is our provider. He promises in Matthew 6:33 to provide for our needs. The Bible teaches that everything we have comes from God and belongs to Him. Psalm 24:1 says, “The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.” Therefore, we are mere stewards of what God has given to us. Tithing is giving back to God what is already His. We return 10% back to Him.
What is the difference between a tithe and an offering?
The word “tithe” means one tenth. So when you tithe, you give one tenth or 10% of your earnings. Tithing (10%) is the starting point of giving. Offerings are gifts given above the tithe. Why should I give money to the church? We recognize that Jesus talked more about giving than He did on any other subject. Matthew 6:21 says, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Together, we work as a church to reach the lost. Malachi 3:10 says, “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.” The storehouse today is the local church you are attending. By partnering our monies together, God’s work is done more effectively.
What are my giving dollars used for?
Your gifts are used to fund God’s work through the ministry of the church. We do this through our weekly services for adults and kids, and through our support of local and world wide missionaries. We can accomplish more together than separate. By giving, you Inspire People, Help People, Break Bondage for His Glory.
What if we believe we can’t afford to tithe right now?
The Lord requires us to be faithful regardless of how much He has entrusted to us. Luke 16:10 says “Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.” It is when we are having financial struggles that we can’t afford not to tithe. God wants us to trust Him in everything, including our finances. God asks us to tithe because through that, we become unselfish people and we show that we trust God to provide for our needs. As we grow in our relationship with Christ, it always requires faith. Trust God by giving to Him even when it seems impossible and allow Him to show you His provision for your life.

First Fruit Giving

What is a first fruit?
It is the first result of something.

How did it work in the Bible?
In the Bible the first fruit was the first tribute that was given to God at the beginning of each yearly harvest (It is now normally practiced in January). This offering was taken to the temple in addition to tithe. One of the main principles of first fruits is a declaration from the individual stating that their dependence is not only on their work, but most importantly, on God.

What Benefits does it bring?
Both in Biblical times and today, the first fruits is a principle that brings prosperity in an overabundance to the individual that puts it into practice. When someone is faithful to God and puts Him first, all other things are added on.

How can I practice this?
This is a personal decision and is by no means an obligation!
  • First: You have to open your heart to be obedient and to believe (have faith) in God’s provision.
  • Second: You need to place your finances in order (Establish a budget), and if you are married you need to come into agreement with your spouse to make the necessary financial adjustments so that this giving can be possible.
  • Third: (The action) Normally, you take the first part of your income of the year and give it completely to God. (Many people give their first check of the week, others their first bi-weekly check, and some give all checks earned the entire first month). This is completely your decision.
    Note: Remember that if you receive additional income after your first fruit giving, your tithe on the additional income for that month is still an order. However, if you gave your entire month’s earnings there would be no tithe because you gave the full 100%.
What do I do if I didn’t prepare ahead of time, or the first check is already gone?
It’s never too late to give a first fruit if you didn’t know about the principle “on time”. It is impossible to practice something that you are unaware of. Begin immediately by making the necessary preparations to practice this giving, in order to ensure the supernatural provision you will see this year. Once you have learned about the principle of the first fruits and have put it into practice, begin to make it a yearly tradition, and plan ahead for the following years.  Every year we receive testimonies of people that begin to practice the giving of their first fruits for the first time, and how they have seen the hand of God move in a supernatural way.

Is there a Biblical foundation that exists for this practice?
The Bible is full of examples of this practice!
