GLCC's Philosophy on Tithing
Have you ever wondered why Jesus talked more about money than He did prayer, heaven, or hell? Because as Jesus said, “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (Matthew 6:21) Giving is a heart issue that gets to the core of what we believe.
We know God to be an incredibly generous God. And as we learn to respond to His generosity, one of the ways we do so is through the tangible act of worshipping Him through giving. We give out of grateful hearts in recognition that God owns everything, and we are able to be faithful stewards of all He entrusts to us.
Because God owns everything, all that we have is a gift, entrusted to us to enjoy and steward. (1 Chronicles 29:14; 1 Corinthians 4:1)
Every believer has a responsibility to support his or her home church financially. (Malachi 3:8-10; 1 Corinthians 9:7-12; 1 Timothy 5:17-18)
Every believer should prayerfully consider the biblical guideline of the tithe (10% of income) as a helpful starting point for learning how to give. (Genesis 14:18-20; Malachi 3:8-10; Matthew 23:23)
Every believer can give biblically, regardless of income. The amount is not as important as the heart as one gives regularly, proportionally, generously, sacrificially, and cheerfully. (1 Corinthians 16:2; Acts 11:29; 2 Corinthians 8:1-5; 2 Corinthians 9:7)
