Who financially supports the Church?
Grace Bible Church is supported entirely by the generous giving of our members and regular attenders. Everything we do as a church is a direct result of their generosity.

Why do we give?
We give to be like God because God generously gives to us. God gave us His son Jesus. God gives us the ability to work and produce money. When we give we show God our thanks, we show God we trust Him, and we fight against greed in our hearts. When we give we invest in eternity through the spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the local church who is helping people find and follow Jesus.
What is tithing?
"Tithe" simply means "a tenth part" which is defined as the first 10% of a person's income that is given back to God through the local church. In the Old Testament, God required a tithe. While there is not set amount of giving in the New Testament, Christians are to give generously, sacrificially, and joyfully. We believe 10% is a great goal and pattern set for us in the Old Testament. When we tithe, we are expressing worship in a tangible way by putting God first in our lives. For more information about what the Bible says about tithing, check out these passages: Leviticus 27:30, Proverbs 3:9-10, Malachi 3:6-10, Matthew 6:19-24 and 1 Corinthians 16:1-2.
