The idea of tithing, bringing the first 10% of our income to the Church, can seem overwhelming. The thing is, regardless of how much or how little we make, God promises to bless us when we tithe.

Tithing is about training our heart to trust God. In Malachi 3:10, the Bible says we can take the promises of God to the bank. When we bring our first and best to God, He promises to bless the rest.

Generosity is a huge step of obedience. Therefore, we want to know you're taking your next step in generosity by bringing your full tithe to the church with the 90 DAY TITHE CHALLENGE. Put God first in your finances for 90 days, and if you do not experience His faithfulness, we will refund 100% of your tithe. No questions asked.

We would also love to hear your story along the way – how is God blessing you after taking this next step in your walk with Him?
