Southern Hills believes that tithing is a biblical principle and encourages its membership to commit to this teaching. We believe that the tithe is 10% of one’s income and that the tithe should be given to the local church.
By giving to the church’s approved budget, your gifts provide funds for the needs of this local congregation, which includes things like education and teaching materials, worship supplies, building maintenance, utilities, and staff. Approximately 16.5% of the total budget is used for Missions and Evangelism. These funds make it possible for the ministry of this local church to provide resources to reach people around the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
In addition to the tithe, we believe the Bible teaches the giving of offerings. Southern Hills provides many opportunities for gifts above the tithe. These would include our World Missions Offering, building fund, and many more. We believe tithing and giving of offerings are spiritual decisions that should be prayerfully considered as individuals and as a family. These should not be “spur of the moment” emotions but conscientious acts of worship.
