Let's be honest. Most of us work too hard for too little. So for many, the idea of tithing, bringing the first 10% of our income to the church, seems overwhelming. The thing is, it doesn't matter how much or how little we make, God promises to pour out blessings on us when we are faithful with the tithe.
Tithing is about training our heart to trust God at His word. In Malachi 3:10, God explains that we can take His promises to the bank. When we bring our first and best back to God, He promises to bless the rest. We can't outgive God.
Countless people experience God's blessings when they tithe, but often the first step is the hardest one to take. If you haven't started tithing yet, we want to extend the 90-Day Tithe Challenge to you. We know generosity is a HUGE step of obedience, but you're not in this alone! We want to know you're taking your step in generosity by bringing your full tithe to the church within the 90-Day Tithe Challenge.
Here's our commitment to you. If you faithfully tithe for three months, and God doesn't hold true to His promises of blessings, we will refund 100% of your tithe.
Are you ready to take the Challenge? Follow these steps:
