After multiple attempts to email pastor Nathaniel at Alpine Bible Church, and then an eventual last-ditch effort to contact someone by PM-ing the church’s Facebook Page, it’s official: they’ve stonewalled us.
So, let’s see how many of these questions we can answer ourselves.
1. What is your church's official position on tithing?
After reviewing ABC’s website and Facebook Page, there are a few signs that they preach tithing.
First, on their Facebook Page. On September 26th they posted what they’re calling the $100 Challenge in an effort to get the congregation to pay for a new building project.
Second, on their website. It’s small, but at least worth noting. While they do very little to pressure or even ask for donations on the website, having only a button at the bottom of the screen to donate, they do give the option to donate towards a “tithe/offering” once you click on that button. It also shows that they use “tithe.ly” at the bottom of the screen, which is an organization that seems to operate similarly to PushPay.
I scoured as many sermons as I could on Alpine Bible Church’s website in search for red flags of tithe preaching and money serving, but found very little, and nothing worth mentioning.
