Why Tithe?

Give — Jesus gave everything for us, and it’s our joy to give back to him in support of the work he is doing here in Copperas Cove and around the world.

Why We Give
Despite our tendency to shy away from the topic, nearly one quarter of Jesus’ teaching was about money. The truth is that money is morally neutral, but what we do with our money reveals something much deeper — what’s in our hearts (Matthew 6:21).
– God is the creator and owner of everything, so we are merely stewards of His stuff (1 Chronicles 29:14).
– Grace encourages members and regular attenders to follow the Biblical model of giving cheerfully (2 Corinthians 9:7) and sacrificially (Psalm 4:5).
 
– Contributing financially to the work of the church out of our “first fruits” is both a renunciation of greed as an idol and an acknowledgement that all we have been given is given to us by God and is to be used for his purposes (Matthew 25:14-30).
 
It is an expression of worship in response to all that God has done.
