Why do we give?
Here at OCC, we teach and practice the Biblical Principle of tithing. Tithe means tenth. When we tithe, we are to give 10% of our income to God. We do this in obedience to Hi. We are called to tithe and give generously. We ask that once you are faithfully tithing, we would like you to consider giving above and beyond.
Proverbs 3:9-10 states "Honor the Lord with your wealth, with your firstfruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine."
When we give we say we trust Him to provide for our needs, we thank Him for giving it to us in the first place, and we admit that He is in control, because it is all His anyway.
