The Act of Giving Changes Us, Making Us More Like Our Generous Creator.
God is the ultimate giver who gave the most precious gift imaginable - His Son Jesus - to die on the cross for our sins. Our lives are transformed by the gospel of Christ. When we learn to give generously, it changes us, making us more like our generous Creator.
The word "tithe" literally means tenth or 10%. Tithing is giving the first ten percent of our income back to God. The Bible says that everything we have comes from Him, so tithing is actually returning to God what belongs to Him. When we tithe, we are putting God first in our lives and trusting Him to provide for all our needs. An offering is anything we give beyond 10%.
It takes financial resources to accomplish the work God has called us to do. Our obedient tithes and generous offerings enable Faith Journey Church to fulfill its mission "to bring the Kingdom of God to life in the city of Quincy". Our giving funds the daily operations of the church, fuels special ALL IN projects, and supports the many core and outreach ministries.
