God is the ultimate giver who gave the most precious gift imaginable – His Son Jesus – to die on the cross for our sins. Our lives are transformed by the gospel of Christ. When we learn to give generously, it changes us, making us more like our generous Creator.
The word “tithe” literally means tenth or 10%. Tithing is giving the first ten percent of our income back to God. The Bible says that everything we have comes from Him, so tithing is actually returning to God what belongs to Him. When we tithe, we are putting God first in our lives and trusting Him to provide for all of our needs. An offering is anything we give beyond the 10%.
It takes financial resources to accomplish the work God has called us to do. Our obedient tithes and generous offerings enable Rhema to fulfill its mission to “Reach The Lost, Train For Service and Change Our World”. Our giving funds the daily operations of the church, fuels special projects, and supports the many core global and local outreach ministries.
