The Questionnaire

1. What is your church's official position on tithing?

On their Mission & Values Page, they are a few statements regarding “Evident Faith” and “Eternally Minded Stewardship” that suggest that they preach tithing and/or have either required giving standards or strongly pressured ones (emphasis mine):

“As people who have received everything by the grace of God, we commit both personally and corporately to wise and generous stewardship of all that God has entrusted to us. We will not hoard people or resources but will joyfully give to bless the body of Christ. In a world that values what is passing away, we will invest in eternity by valuing people over programs and facilities.”

“At Gospel Grace Church, we want to obey God regardless of the cost and even if we don’t know all the details. We refuse to dig our roots into that which is passing away. We willingly invest our families, our finances and future because we bank everything on the promises of God. We communicate and exercise this faith through our emphasis on corporate and individual prayer.”

Additionally, the church Covenant and its Core values mandates that members must give financially to the church.
