Why do we Give?

The Bible talks about how God is able to bless us abundantly when we put Him first. There is a supernatural trigger that happens when we put God first in everything we do.

Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.

- 2 Corinthians 9:6-8

What Is the Tithe?

At University Ministries, we practice tithing for the support of Christ’s Body, the church, as God commands. We recognize that giving 10% of our income is the Biblical standard of giving.

A tenth of the produce of the land, whether grain or fruit, belongs to the Lord and must be set apart to him as holy.

- Leviticus 27:30
