Every Christian should diligently pray and seek God’s wisdom in the matter of participating in tithing and/or how much to give (James 1:5). Above all, all tithes and offerings should be given with pure motives and an attitude of worship to God and service to the body of Christ. “Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver”. Many Christians struggle with the issue of tithing, at the same time; many Christians refuse to submit to the biblical exhortations about making offerings to the Lord. Tithing/giving is intended to be a joy and a blessing.

The Bible is very clear that involvement in, and commitment to, a local church are essential for Christians. Throughout the New Testament, the pattern of the Christians is to meet in local congregations (e.g. Acts 2:46; 1 Corinthians 14:26; Ephesians 4:16; 1 Timothy 3:15). At some points we are commanded to do so (e.g. Hebrews 10:25). Having said that, it is true that the Bible nowhere requires membership of a church. In fact, in Biblical times there was no such thing. However, the Biblical principle is that the church is a family and a unit. Church membership is a way of becoming involved in the church and in demonstrating a commitment to the church.
