Information on Christian giving:

What's a tithe? 
A tithe is literally a "tenth." In the Bible, God gives us a good guideline on what our giving should look like. So, a good model for giving is a tenth of your income.

What's an offering?
An offering is simply a gift you offer to God. All throughout the Bible, we see the people of God coming together to meet the needs of others and to fund ministry. 

What's the most important thing when considering giving? 
The size of the gift is not the most important thing about giving. The heart behind the gift is what is most important. Certainly, we should give to the best of our ability, but it should never be done as some sort of ritual or in a bad attitude. The Bible says: "Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver (2 Cor. 9:7)." Because of God's grace, we can give both tithes and offerings, as we work together to minister to others and follow His example of giving.

Where does the money go?
Tithes and offerings are what support our ministry right here in Grand Prairie, and also support missionaries, church planters, the Texas Baptist Home for Children, Lifeword, Jacksonville College, BMA Seminary, Dallas Life, and others. We are 100% transparent and prudent with our finances.
