We give our talent, time, and treasure.
~ Luke 6:38 ~
We believe that giving is a part of worship!
At the First Church of the Open Bible, we believe that giving comes in the forms of giving of talent through your gifts and strengths, giving of your time through service to others, and giving of your treasure through tithes and offerings.
GIVING OF YOUR TALENT and TIME: Building and sustaining the Kingdom of God here on earth requires all of us to do our part by providing service to others with our God-given talents, gifts, and purpose.
GIVING OF YOUR TREASURE: If you’ve never given before, we invite you to take the challenge and put God to the test. (Malachi 3:10). In the Bible, we learn there are two different types of giving: tithes and offerings. The tithe is our baseline standard for giving. Under the Old Testament Law, Israelites were required to give a tithe of their earnings. The Apostle Paul in the New Testament says believers should regularly set aside a portion of their income to support the church (1 Corinthians 16:1-2). When we give the first 10% of our income (tithe) to the church, we put God first in our lives. An offering is when we feel called to give generously above and beyond, when we see a need and are moved to meet it.
