Yes.


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


We believe tithing is a representation of a Christian’s heart. We do not reprimand

anyone who doesn’t tithe – we believe, that the Old Covenant Law of 10% (first-fruits) is

a minimum. The Early Church of Acts gave 100% and shared everything in common –

so for us to say, “Do not give,” seems counter-intuitive. Rather, we encourage giving and

let our members know that 10% was an Old Covenant minimum and we, as New

Covenant believers ought to give out of the sincerity of our hearts and listening to God

for His will in our giving. Christ rebukes the pharisees, not because they tithe, but

because they tithe and do not practice justice, mercy, and faithfulness. “You should have

practiced the latter, without neglecting the former.”
