We believe in biblical tithing and generosity.
The tithe – or the giving of the first tenth of our income to the local church is a good
minimum benchmark for Christian giving. Through the tithe we put God first in our lives and
acknowledge that He is our source. Not only is the tithe a means that God has ordained to ensure that
there is provision for the church’s work, but when coupled with the genuine pursuit of God, it becomes a
pathway to blessing for the individual.
Giving generously, or ‘offerings’ is about giving over the tithe or into specific appeals or causes in and
beyond the local church. Jesus said in Acts 20:35 that “it is more blessed to give than to receive”;
Proverbs 11:25 also says that a “generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself
Here at LGCC, we are thankful for God’s goodness and the generosity of those who
