WHY WE GIVE
We think Christians should be the most generous people on earth to support worthy causes, and there is no organization with more potential to change the world than the local church.
The mission and vision of Rise Church is directly funded by the generosity of people like you. We believe you can’t out give God, so when you’re trusting Him with your tithes and offerings we know He will bless the rest (Proverbs 3:9-10, Malachi 3:10-12).
FIRST THINGS FIRST
The first belongs to God. We find this principle all through God's Word. Tithing, giving God the first ten percent of our income to the local church, is the primary way we acknowledge that God is first. (Proverbs 3:9,10)
KNOW GIVING, KNOW LIFE
Giving is the antidote for materialism. Whereas the tithe is giving ten percent of your income to the local church, an offering is given out of the ninety percent of your income. Therefore the offering is giving over and above the tithe. The Bible says that by giving generously we are able to "take hold of the life that is truly life." You aren't really living unless you are freely giving. (I Timothy 6:18,19)
THE TREASURE TEST
Giving is the only area in the Bible where God invites us to test Him. Give your tithe (the first 10% of your income) to God and see if He does not open the floodgates of heaven to bless you in ways that you never dreamed possible. (Malachi 3:10)
AN ETERNAL INVESTMENT
Even when the stock market's down, you can make an investment that pays dividends for a lifetime and beyond. By investing in the life-changing message of Jesus, you can leverage your money for eternal purposes. (I Timothy 6:7)
