general giving

Will a man rob God?  Yet ye have robbed me.  But ye say, wherein have we robbed thee?  In tithes and offerings. – Malachi 3:8
Why Give?  We give first out of obedience to God.  Secondly, to be blessing to someone else.
The gifts, offerings and tithes that you give will be used
  • evangelistically – to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ
  • benevolently – to provide spiritual and physical assistance to those who are in need
