First Things First

God doesn’t need our money. He owns it all already. It is critically important to understand that the money we have is not our own. It is God’s money, and He has entrusted it to us to manage. The word tithe means tenth and refers to the first ten percent of all our income. The Bible tells us that the tithe belongs to God, and is to be immediately set aside for Him (Lev 27:30), and is to be brought to the storehouse (Mal 3:10). Today, that storehouse is the local church. You can think of the local church as being a hospital for spiritually sick people where Jesus Christ is the doctor. But just as a hospital cannot heal the physically sick without funds, the church cannot heal the spiritually sick without funds. When we tithe, we give to others through the church. By giving God the first ten percent of our income, we are showing Him that He is more important than the cable company, the mortgage company…even the IRS. We are saying that we believe Him when He promises to provide for us (Gen 22:14) and that He will bless our lives through our giving (Mal 3:10, Pro 3:9-10). As faithful Christians, tithing should be as natural as bowing our heads during prayer.

 

Real Giving is Real Living

God is not interested in the simple action of giving; He is intensely interested in the faith that prompts the action of giving. Giving is the antidote for materialism. The Bible says by giving generously we are able to “take hold of the life that is truly life.” You aren’t really living unless you’re freely giving. (1 Timothy 6:19)

 

The Treasure Test

In Matthew 6:20-21, the Bible explains to us that “where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” If you want to know what’s most important to you. Take a look at where your money goes. That can be a real eye opener. Another eye opener is the fact that God asks us to test Him. There is one and only one place in the Bible that God invites us to test Him. In Malachi 3:10, God commands us to tithe, and then tells us to test Him to see if He will not pour out a blessing. Luke 6:38 says, “Give and it will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, they will pour into your lap.” The God of the universe asks you to give Him ten percent of your income and see what He will do for you. Tithing is a win, win situation with God on your side.

 

Eternal Investment

God has called the Church to spread the good news of Jesus Christ, thus affecting the eternity of millions of people. The Church simply cannot do this without money. God allows us to be a part of spreading His Word. Be generous, give because you love God, you love people and you believe God will keep His promises.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: Do I have to have a E-Giving Account?

No. We use E-Giving so they can take care of the details and you can feel safe using a secure online service.

Q: Can I use a Credit Card?

You can use a Credit Card or a Debit Card to give through E-Giving but give from the heart not from compulsion.

Q: Will My Giving Be Private?

Just like our Sunday offering only the counting team will know what you give.

Q: Why Have Online Giving?

In our Society Paying and Giving Online is as normal as walking to the temple was in the Old Testament. The Purpose is to give with a Thankful, Obedient, and Cheerful Heart not how and when you give. Giving online may even be more of a private worship experience for you than giving during the Sunday service. If you are not comfortable giving online you can still mail a check to Coastal or give on Sundays.

Q: How do I participate in the weekly offering if my contribution is automatically processed online?

If you wish, you can write, “I’m giving online” on the offering envelope and place it in the offering plate, but it is not necessary.
