Christ Church Tithe Challenge


What is a tithe? 

A tithe - which simply means "tenth" - is bringing the first 10% of a person's (or family’s) income back to the local church.  Tithing is a principle taught throughout the entire Bible.  When we tithe, we are expressing worship in a tangible way by putting God first and recognizing God has blessed us so we can be a blessing. 

God repeatedly challenges us to trust Him with our finances, promising that when we give Him our first and best, He will bless the rest!  Exodus 34:26a says “Bring the best  of the first fruits of your soil to the house of the Lord your God.” and Proverbs 3:9-10, 2 Chronicles 31:5 , Leviticus 27:30 all give us an understanding of how God wants us to trust Him.

Let’s be honest, most of us work too hard for too little. So, for many, the idea of tithing, bringing the first 10% of our income to God, seems overwhelming regardless of how  much we make.  Here’s the thing, it doesn’t matter how much or how little we make.  God promises to pour out blessings on us when we tithe.

In Malachi 3:10 God says, "Test me in this and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be enough room to store it."  

Tithing is about training our heart to trust God and take Him at His Word.
