The Christian Israelite Church combines both the teachings of the Old Testament (Israelite) and the New Testament (Christian). As particular aspects of the religion are outlined, you will see both these teachings observed.
Tithing is a requirement of Israel. It is mentioned in the Bible that Abraham gave tithe (see Genesis 14:18-20). Jacob vowed to give one tenth of all he received, back to God as a thank offering for his care (see Genesis 28:22). The Mosaic instruction commanded the Israelites to pay tithe of their increase in their herds as well as the seed of the land (see Leviticus 27:30-33). Jesus spoke of tithing as being a part of the Law of God which should be kept along with love and mercy (see Matthew 23:23).
Tithing is part of a personal covenant we make with God and God has promised to pour out a blessing on any who pay tithe (see Malachi 3:8-10).
All members are required to pay towards the expense of the cleaning, lighting and upkeep of the Church or Meeting Room.
