What is tithing?
Tithing is one of those "churchy" words, but what is it exactly, anyway? Dictionary.com defines the word tithe as:
the tenth part of personal income set apart as an offering to God or for works of mercy, or the same amount regarded as an obligation or tax for the support of the church, priesthood, or the like.
According to God's Word, the concept of the tithe simply means giving 10% back to God from all of your income sources whether it be your job, your spouse's job, second jobs, side work, income from a small business, or investment income. As a church body, we believe God has instructed us to give at least a minimum of 10% of our income back to Him in order to advance His Kingdom through the ministries of our church.
