Emmanuel Baptist Church is financially supported and resourced through the gifts of the people in this faith community. Giving is a way of showing that God is ultimately the owner and ruler of this world and our lives. One aspect of spiritual growth is to trust God's directives in our lives, including the way we manage our finances. The principle of tithing, or giving 10% of your income, is a helpful guideline from the Bible. We encourage people who want to experience the faithfulness of God to try tithing, or to move toward tithing as their circumstances allow. Investing and participating in the local church is a way to make the kingdom of God more visible in the world.
