Why would I tithe?
For many, the idea of bringing the first 10% of our income to the Church seems overwhelming, especially if you’ve never done it before. The thing is, it doesn’t matter how much or how little we make. Tithing is about training our heart to trust God and training our hands to give freely. That’s why the choice to tithe isn’t really a financial choice – but a spiritual one.
Countless people experience God’s blessings when they tithe, but often the first step is the hardest one to take. That’s why we created the “90-Day Tithe Challenge." If you are not presently tithing (giving the first 10% of your income) and are willing to make the commitment to take the 90-Day Tithe Challenge, you are going to get a guarantee from Restoration Place Church! We commit to you that if you tithe for 90 days and God doesn’t hold true to His promises, we will refund 100% of your tithe.
If you are currently tithing consistently, we still invite you to sign up for the challenge. Our ministry team will be praying especially for the finances of those inside the challenge over the next 90-days.
We believe that if we come into agreement as a Church for this length of time regarding finances, there will be many financial breakthrough's.
So what have you got to lose? Take the challenge and start putting God first in your finances today
"I tithed and sowed a special seed offering in faith that a large need would be met. The next week, an unexpected check in the amount to cover my mortgage and then some arrived in the mail. Tithing works!"
"My business has grown exponentially since connecting with, tithing and giving over and above seed offerings at RPC. We have created partnerships, doubled our out of town and local customers and increased our following in a matter of months."
"I joined the tithe challenge wanting to become closer to God, but also deeply desiring a shift in my career because I was working 2 jobs to meet my financial obligations. God blessed me with a promotion at one of those jobs giving me what I had been earning from both combined. This promotion included bonus incentives, paid time off and a wonderful retirement package! I wanted to celebrate what God was doing in my life with an over and above seed. God clearly knew where my heart was, because when I checked my mailbox after church, there was an unexpected check awaiting me."
"I started tithing regularly Since joining RPC a few years However during the 90 day tithe challenge, I challenged myself to give more. I recently accumulated a few hospital bills and I was in the process of paying them when I was informed all of a sudden by the hospital that I was going to be sent to collections if the $1000 balance wasn’t paid within 2 weeks. I asked the billing department several times if an arrangement could be made and they repeatedly said NO; the balance needed to be paid in full now and they didn’t care that I had been making payments over the past few months. I prayed and asked God to please provide a way for me to make the payment to avoid collections and the same day I received a substantial credit increase on my credit card. Even though that was not the method of payment I wanted to use, I used my credit card to pay the hospital balance because it saved me from collections. After paying, I still was a bit frustrated because I now had a credit card balance on a card that previously had a zero balance. I thanked God for providing but I said God, Now I have an unwanted and unexpected credit card debt; please help me pay this off. Let me tell you, even when we don’t see it, ALL THINGS ARE WORKING FOR OUR GOOD. Within 7 days, I received a check in the mail from a claim I had submitted through my health insurance that paid me for the inconvenience of having to go to the hospital earlier in the year. Guess what! The check was for my entire credit card balance plus some! God is truly a provider. I’m so grateful that I am a part of a church that places an emphasis on giving because when you give it truly comes back to you. God continues to show me that no matter the situation HE WILL PROVIDE so there is no reason to stress because HE IS IN CONTROL!"
