If you are a member of the Antioch Church, we want to remind you that as believers we have been entrusted by God with stewardship over our finances, resources, time, and it is our privilege and responsibility to honor God by giving to His church and to others.
If you are a guest, we want to thank you for taking the time to visit our website. Although the responsibility of funding the Antioch Church is solely placed on those of us who are members, we do recognize that people, like yourself, who have visited either online or in person, have been impacted by the ministries and want to give in support of what we are doing here. If that is you, we gratefully and humbly accept your financial gift and pray that our church will continue to be a blessing to you and others. As a donor, you also have online access to your financial contribution statement and availability to update your personal profile.
Gross or Net?
The most common view is that gross earnings is the amount of God's provision, and the tithe should be based on one-tenth of God's provision. Though scripture doesn't necessarily use the literal terms "net" or "gross," it is important to note that the spirit in which we give is of greatest value to God. He tells us in II Corinthians 9 that "each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give; not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."
What if I don´t have enough money to tithe?
Giving 10% of your income to your church can be a big - and often frightening - commitment! But if scripture tells us to honor Him with our first fruits and our blessings will be overflowing, we must learn to trust that He is faithful to provide. God wants us to trust Him. Seek His guidance in how much you should give, and he will honor your faithfulness and obedience.
What if my income varies?
Depending on which is more feasible for your situation, you can handle tithing with a fluctuating income in a couple of different ways. Some people choose to give exactly one-tenth of their earnings for each individual pay period. Others estimate their total earnings for the year and give a portion of the total tithe each week throughout the year.
Why do you accept credit cards?
Used within the parameters for which they were originally created, debit and credit cards can be an efficient tool for payments and purchases. Many people utilize them in place of checks or cash throughout the month, then pay off the balance in full. For these people, we offer the option of using a credit or debit card to tithe. We strongly discourage those who have ongoing credit card debt from exercising this option.
Who should give electronically?
Anyone who is looking for a simpler way to give. Anyone who would like to give to The Antioch Church on a one-time or recurring basis.
What are my options for giving electronically?
There are several ways to give electronically online: automatic checking withdrawal, debit cards, and credit cards.
When are electronic contributions processed?
Electronic contributions are initiated whenever you choose—one-time or recurring.
If I don’t write checks, how do I keep my checkbook balance straight?
Your electronic contribution is made on a pre-established day, so you can deduct it from your checkbook then.
What if I desire to make changes to my electronic contribution?
No problem. You are in control... simply log in to do it yourself or email your changes/cancellations to our Business Department, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Will my electronic contributions be included on my Statement of Contributions?
Yes, they will be included.
