We believe in paying "Tithes & Offering". Tithes are a tenth of all our income which belongs to God. It is required of us to give back what belongs to him. It is a blessing to "Give" so "Offerings" are those free-will charitable giving, besides or other than that so stated as tithes. God loves a cheerful giver. (Malachi 3:8-10; Matthew 23:23; 1 Corithians 16: 1-2).
