Your faithful generosity helps advance and accelerate our mission to create more opportunities for people to experience a life-changing relationship with Jesus, and there is no greater impact we could make together.
We believe that giving (or tithing) is an integral part of a maturing relationship with God.
Giving is a way for us to follow through on what He’s asked us to do. In the Bible, God tells us to, “Honour God with everything you own; give him the first and the best.” (Malachi 3:8-12; Proverbs 3:9)
Giving acknowledges God as the giver of everything we have. (James 1:17)
Giving reveals our trust that God will provide for us, and is our way of refusing to allow our possessions to consume or define us. (Matthew 6:19-24)
Giving allows us to be active participants in God work on earth. (2 Cor. 9:6-7)
The Bible teaches us that our baseline standard for giving is the tithe (Lev. 27:30) – contributing 10% of our income to the church. At Calvary, we know tithing has been a turning point for many people to experience the blessings of Jesus.
When God stirs us to give beyond our tithe, it’s referred to as an offering. You can direct your offering to the cause that resonates with you personally.
