Online Giving



You are entrusted by God with stewardship over your finances, resources and time, and it is your responsibility as a believer to be a good steward and give back to God what is His through giving to the church and to others.

Good stewardship over our financial resources involves the way we earn, spend, save, invest and give.




Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Giving



Gross or Net?
The most common view is that gross earnings is the amount of God's provision, and the tithe should be based on one-tenth of God's provision. Though scripture doesn't necessarily use the literal terms "net" or "gross," it is important to note that the spirit in which we give is of greatest value to God. Do you want a gross blessing or a net blessing? He tells us in II Corinthians 9 that "each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give; not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."


What if I don't have enough money to tithe?
Giving 10% of your income to your church can be a big - and often frightening - commitment! But if scripture tells us to honor Him with our first fruits and our blessings will be overflowing, we must learn to trust that He is faithful to provide. God wants us to trust Him. Seek His guidance in how much you should give, and he will honor your faithfulness and obedience.


What if my income varies?
Depending on which is more feasible for your situation, you can handle tithing with a fluctuating income in a couple of different ways. Some people choose to give exactly one-tenth of their earnings for each individual pay-period. Others estimate their total earnings for the year and give a portion of the total tithe each week throughout the year.


Why do you accept credit cards?
Used within the parameters for which they were originally created, debit and credit cards can be an efficient tool for payments and purchases. Many people utilize them in place of checks or cash throughout the month, then pay off the balance in full. For these people, we offer the option of using a credit or debit card to tithe. We strongly discourage those who have ongoing credit card debt from exercising this option.
