Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple. If you do,” says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, “I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in! Try it! Put me to the test!

Malachi 3:10

Why are we doing the 90-Day Tithe Challenge?

Each and every week we tell our members at C3 Church that our mission is, “Inviting everyone in our influence to experience FULL LIFE in Jesus.” We actually want this to be a reality in people’s lives, not just a nice sentiment or slogan that they give mental ascent to. Our goal at C3 Church is to guide people onto pathways that lead them towards this full life, and we believe generosity is one of the key pathways. When you step out in generosity, not only are you making a difference in building God’s kingdom, but you also find yourself growing and maturing (spiritually) in ways that could not have been achieved by any other means.

Pathways to the generous lifestyle

TITHE
The tithe is the first step towards becoming generous. But what is the tithe? The word “tithe” actually means tenth in Hebrew. Therefore, when we ask people to “tithe,” we’re specifically asking them to give 10% of their income to God. Notice we did not say give 10% of their income to “the church.” When you tithe, you’re giving your money to God, not to man. Of course, the money is collected and used by “the church” to provide weekend services, pay salaries for church staff, keep the lights on at our facility, help meet community needs, etc. When you tithe, you’re trusting God with your money and trusting your spiritual leaders (pastors and staff) to steward those finances in a godly manner. Both giver and receiver of the funds is responsible to God!

ABOVE and BEYOND
The next step towards generosity is to go “above and beyond” the tithe. This means giving over the initial 10% tithe. At C3 Church, we call these people Vision Builders. This type of giving could also be viewed as an “offering.” People who give “above and beyond” the tithe are those who recognize God is the Source of their provision. In other words, they believe He owns it all anyway, so they give generously above and beyond (or over) their tithe.
