Why we give
The Bible tells us to return to God one-tenth of the abundance that comes to us. This standard for giving is called the tithe. We put God first when we give 10 percent of our income back to God through the church. Of course, we realize that some have been so richly blessed that they may choose to give more. Others, at various times in their lives, may find it necessary to give less. But our desire should be to come as close as we are able to that traditional gift to God. These gifts allow us to continue to do God’s work in Charlotte and around the world.
