More Info On Giving | Northstar Church

WHY DO WE GIVE?

We believe the top competitor for our devotion to Jesus is money (Matthew 6:24). Giving allows us to demonstrate that He is more important to us than material things.

We believe you can’t outgive God, so when you’re trusting Him with your tithes and offerings we know that He will bless the rest (Proverbs 3:9-10 and Malachi 3:10-12).

We think Christians should be the most generous people (2 Corinthians 9:6) on earth to support worthy causes, and there is no organization with more potential to change the world than the local church (Ephesians 3:10)!

WHAT IS TITHING?

A tithe-which just meant “tenth”-is defined as the first 10% of a person’s income that is to be given back to the local church. Tithing is a principle that is taught throughout the entire Bible. When we tithe, we are expressing worship in a tangible way by putting God first in our lives.

Bringing our tithes is an opportunity for us to give God our thanks, show God we trust Him, and fight against greed in our hearts…all while allowing us to be a part of the most important work in life that is spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ!

If you would like to read more about what the Bible has to say about tithing, check out these passages: Leviticus 27:30, Proverbs 3:9-10, Malachi 3:6-10, Matthew 6:19-24, and 1 Corinthians 16:1-2.

 

IS MY GIFT TAX-DEDUCTIBLE?

All contributions are 100% tax-deductible. Giving statements are mailed out quarterly and at the end of the year to help you keep track of your giving.

 

WHAT ABOUT DESIGNATED GIFTS?

We will try to honor designated gifts. By contributing to any specific fund, donors acknowledge that the church has full authority to apply contributions designated for that project to other purposes and this contribution is made with the understanding the the church has complete control and administration over the use of any donated funds.
