Tithing is a way to worship God, because it shows Him that we trust His provision in our lives. “Tithe” means ten percent, which is the portion of our income that we give to God to say thank you for all He has given us. God doesn’t need our money; He wants our trust, and trusting Him with our finances is a great way to demonstrate our dependence on Him.
Giving away 10% of your income can be a big – and often frightening – commitment! The thing is, no matter how much or how little we make, the Bible says we can take the promises of God to the bank. When we bring our first and best back to God, He promises to pour out blessings on us when we tithe.
Tithing is about training our heart to take God at His Word. We know generosity is a huge step of obedience, but you’re not in this alone. We want to know you’re taking your next step in generosity by bringing your full tithe to the church. That’s why we created the 90-Day Tithing Challenge: a money-back guarantee of sorts. Essentially, it’s a contract based on the promises of God in Malachi 3:10-11. We commit that if you tithe for 90-days and God doesn’t hold true to His promises of blessings, we will refund 100% of your tithe. No questions asked.
WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW BEFORE GETTING STARTED?
So that we're all on the same page, we've come up with a few terms that you need to understand and agree to prior to getting started:
I understand that this form must be completed and received by the Four Corners finance team prior to beginning the 90-Day Tithing Challenge.
I understand that my household qualifies for participation because we have not been tithing a full 10% or more of our income for the last 6 months.
I understand that if I pay my tithe at the physical Four Corners Church campus, my tithe must be paid by check, online, or by completed offering envelope, so that my tithe can be properly recorded.
I understand that I cannot seek a refund prior to the end of the 90-day Tithing Challenge period, and that I cannot seek a refund for any contributions made prior to the beginning of the 90-day Tithing Challenge.
I understand that any refund request must be received by the Four Corners finance team within 30 days of the end of the 90-Day Tithing Challenge.
I understand that if I use online giving, I must set up an account and log in prior to paying my tithe online, so that my tithe can be properly recorded.
I would like to test God’s faithfulness (Malachi 3:8-10) by accepting the 90-day Tithing Challenge. I agree that for the 90-day period, my household will contribute to God, through Four Corners Church, a tithe equal to or greater than 10% of our total income. At the end of the 90-day period, if I am not convinced of God’s faithfulness to bless my life as a result of my obedience to His Word, then I will be entitled to request a refund of the full amount of contributions made during that 90-day period. I will receive my refund within 30 days.
