GIVE

THROUGH YOUR GIVING, WE SERVE OTHERS...

At City of Hope International Church, we believe that the Lord’s work is a shared responsibility. As we work diligently serving our community and beyond, we are sustained by generous and consistent giving. This scriptural practice is a cornerstone to meeting our goals and missions. The following five principles is the guiding light of our giving philosophy:

1. The Lord expects us to give. (Matt. 6:2; Exodus 25:1)
2. Giving is an act of worship. (I Cor 16:2)
3. Giving should be done in light of Jesus’ costly sacrifice. (II Cor 8:9)
4. Christians should give in accordance with their means. (II Cor 8; I Cor 16:2)
5. Gods liberality to us is connected to the liberality of our giving. (II Cor 9; Matt 6:4)

Give Your Treasure

Tithe

Biblical tithing refers to the practice of giving one tenth of one’s income for the work of God. As messaged in the Scriptures, we believe tithing is a response of gratitude and an obligation.

Love Offering

A love offering is a voluntary sacrifice as opposed to one given out of vow or consequence. Generally, it is given above and beyond a person’s tithe. It is not to be given grudgingly or under constraint, but given cheerfully before the Lord, whereas it is the overflow expression of Gods active grace in our lives.
