Giving

Online Giving Options

We have created an account for online giving through a service called Easy Tithe. This service allows you to tithe and give to other ministry activities of our church via the internet. This technology will help those who cannot be present on some Sundays but still want to remain faithful in their giving.

Easy Tithe has an easy-to-use and secure interface for giving. The system allows for a one time gift or continued automatic giving. It will allow you to give to the general ministry of the church or other ministry funds such as Faith Promise and Seed of Hope. Click on the button below to get started.

Why do we give? – Christian Stewardship

The Bible teaches us God is Creator and Lord over everything. As followers of Jesus we recognize we are to be His stewards of both life and possessions. The biblical principle of tithing is based on the Jewish and Christian tradition of giving God our “first-fruits”, which is the best of what God has given us. Giving one-tenth of one’s possessions was written in Jewish law, and this tradition was continued by early Christians as a way of supporting the ministry and work of the church. Above all, the principle of tithing encourages us to be generous givers, giving back part of what we have in thanks for all God has given us.

In the Church of the Nazarene, tithes and offerings go toward supporting the work of the local church. The local church in turn gives one-tenth and more to the ministry of the denomination around the world. The Church of the Nazarene Manual states:

“All who are a part of the Church of the Nazarene are encouraged to contribute faithfully one-tenth of their increase as a minimal financial obligation to the Lord and freewill offerings in addition as God has prospered them for the support of the whole church, local, district, educational, and general. The tithe, provided to the local Church of the Nazarene, shall be considered a priority over all other giving opportunities which God may lay upon the hearts of His faithful stewards, in support of the whole church.”
