WAYS TO GIVE
EVERYTHING WE HAVE IS FROM GOD AND BELONGS TO GOD.
We are stewards; He is the owner. When giving, a steward is simply returning a portion of what God has given and does so with gladness that comes from gratitude. This is true of us as individuals and as the collective body of Trinity Church. Tithing is the biblical foundation and cornerstone of stewardship. The tithe is the floor, not the ceiling for giving. It is for many people, the single most fundamental step in transforming attitudes and actions concerning money and possessions. The tithe is established in the Old Testament (Leviticus 27:30 and elsewhere) and endorsed by Jesus in the New Testament (Matthew 23:23).
We do not believe that the local church is due the full tithe because we do not believe that the local church is comparable to the “Storehouse” of the Old Testament. There are other Christian endeavors worthy of support. We believe that the tithe can be distributed among Kingdom causes, but a person’s church home should be a primary recipient.
