Money is important in the world we live. At Decatur First Nazarene we worship God with every aspect of our lives, which is a holistic pursuit. Worshiping God includes joyful surrender of our financial life to God and his purposes in the world. The Bible teaches more about the issue of money than it does about many other topics.
For followers of Jesus giving 10% of our resources as a tithe has served as a healthy measurement prescribed in scripture.
Some may choose to give more, but we believe that giving 10% of what we earn serves as a starting point for followers of Jesus. Tithing is taught in the Bible and practiced by Christians throughout history. As people who follow Jesus Christ, we believe we are called to a life of ever-increasing generosity.
Having a healthy understanding of and relationship to money is critical in living a life surrendered to Christ.
Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in a steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. – Matthew 6:19-21
