Generosity isn't about money. It's about transformation.
Generosity will change your life. When you put God above material things, you declare your trust and faith in him and invite his blessings into your life. But it doesn’t just change your life—we see Jesus' transforming power at work every day through healed families, restored faith, and stronger communities.
Generosity isn't a transaction. It's a relationship.
The Bible teaches us a baseline standard for giving: the tithe. Tithing—which just means "tenth"—is a principle taught throughout the Bible as giving the first 10% of our income back to God's purposes. It's one of the most tangible ways we worship God because it declares that he is first in our lives. But it's not about the transaction—it's about putting our relationship with God above everything else. Tithing is the foundation of our giving—an act of worship that expresses our gratitude, faith, and love for God and others.
Living generously isn't our job. It's a way of life.
God has called us to live generously. We do this when we respond to God by supporting the needs of the church, community and world—when we serve others and share our time, talents and finances. We do this when we pray for people, show love, and live each day with God's wisdom. We do this by celebrating what God is doing—in our church and in the lives of others.
