What's the difference between "tithes" and "offerings"?
God calls each of us to give 10% of our "first fruits" to the "storehouse"...to the church we've been called to serve. Our tithes help to create the quality environment, ministries, and discipleship tools we all enjoy. New Vision also believes that our church, as one body of believers, is called to tithe. 10% of the general receipts received at New Vision are given to local and global outreach ministries.
Occasionally, God calls us to make sacrificial offerings above our tithe. These offerings are usually designated to a specific capital steward campaign, ministry or outreach, or perhaps to help meet the needs of a specific person. In addition to those needs being met, your obedient generosity many times also increases the faith of the recipient!
