The Questionnaire

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

“Tithing is a part of a person’s personal worship to God. We believe each one must give as he decides in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion (2 Cor 9:7).”

2. Does your church have a particular set of rules or requirements that members must follow or abide by in order to retain their membership status with the church?

“We do not have official membership primarily because of the cultural connotation of church membership in our community. However, if you were looking for an equivalency, if a person invested their "time, talent and treasure" at Redemption Hill, then we would consider that this would be their expression of saying we were their "home church."

3. Are you transparent with your church's financial information? How much does your church bring in through donations and tithing, and how is that money distributed?

“We have an annual business meeting at the beginning of every year where the congregation is invited to attend. We cover the past year's budget as well as the upcoming year's budget. The summary of that budget is available upon request for any one attending Redemption Hill Church.”

(Psst: I requested a copy of this budget summary for the purposes of this review, and pastor Steve forwarded me to his Admin without hesitation.)

4. Which denomination does your church align with the most, if any?
