Tithing is one way we worship God. Though the Tithe represents only 10% of our income, it is 100% of the church’s income. Tithing has always been God’s only plan to support His work financially. Because of this, the Bible makes tithing a non-negotiable for the people of God to provide for His work in the world. The Offering is separate from the tithe. It is a completely voluntary gift offered to the Lord for a specific purpose, or out of a heart of worship and gratefulness. It is a gift that is offered in addition to God’s required Tithe.
