Why We Give

Stewardship

…recognizes the Biblical principle that everything we have belongs to the Lord and all that we have God has given us to manage. (1 Chronicles 29:11-12)

Tithing

…is the Biblical concept of giving 10% back to the Lord. (Malachi 3:10) Offerings are whatever we give over and above our tithe.

Storehouse Giving

…is a term related to how much of what we give is to be given directly to the local church to which we belong (Malachi 3:10). We interpret this to mean that members are challenged to give their full tithe to the local church while offerings may be given for the Lord’s work at Christ United and/or elsewhere.

God loves a cheerful giver

2 Corinthians 8 and 9 are also helpful to our understanding that we are to excel in the grace of giving (8:7); that we reap what we sow (9:6); and that we are to give cheerfully (9:7).
