Jesus teaches us that it is impossible to love both God and money (Matt. 6:24). The act of giving breaks the spiritual stronghold of greed, poverty, and selfishness that is present in the world today. We believe that God owns everything (Ps. 24:1), has entrusted each of us with resources, and has given us the Bible to help us steward it. The Bible says that God has reserved the first 10% of everything He gives us for Himself and to build His House (Josh. 6:18-19).
Bringing the tithe literally means giving a tenth of your income, bonuses, profit and increase to the House of God. However, the Bible says the tithe is not just 10%. Because all acts of obedience are married to faith God wants us to bring the tithe FIRST.
If God is first in your life, everything else will be in order. The principle of bringing the first fruits, the tithe, to the place God fills you spiritually, helps to ensure you are putting God first in your life.

TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR MONEY,
steward what God has given you.
God doesn't want something from you, He wants something for you! That is why we believe managing your personal finances well is incredibly important. Proverbs 21:5 says, “Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity…” Most would agree that if a football coach went into his Championship Game without a game plan he would surely lose. In the same way, when we fail to budget, pay off debt, or save for retirement we are likely to face unfavorable situations in our life.
