Why should i Tithe?
Tithing reflects a grateful heart that wants to give back to God a portion of what He has given us; in reality, what is already His. Tithing is our opportunity to show God that He is first in our lives. James 1:17 says that “every good and perfect gift is from above…,” so we have an opportunity to tangibly show God He is the “owner” of our finances by giving back to Him the first of what He gives us.
3 Reasons to Tithe

What is the most important thing to you? Jesus said in Matthew 6:21 that “where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” We can see the reality of that in the world today and the exaltation of the financially successful, and more personally you can see that by looking at your own checkbook.
Malachi 3:10


Long before tithing was a practice of the Israelite people, Cain and Abel, the second generation of the human race, brought an offering to the Lord. The Lord blessed Abel’s offering, but rejected Cain’s. Abel brought the “firstborn of his flock,” while Cain brought “some of the fruits of the soil” as an offering. God wants to be first. The following scriptures show how tithing is biblical.
Genesis 14:18-20, Genesis 28:22, Leviticus 27:30, & Deuteronomy 26:1-2


God’s kingdom is built on multiplication, not division. God uses the tithe as an investment where everyone involved gets a return on the investment. Obviously, the church and the kingdom are blessed, and yet God’s nature is to also bless the giver. This principle is highlighted in the passage below.
2 Chronicles 31:4-10

Statement of Financial Accountability

Thank you for donating to CityLight Church.

At CityLight, we do not take your giving for granted. God commands us to tithe and give to the local church. He also exhorts the local church to use donated funds wisely, prudently, and for the purposes He chooses. Accordingly, we go to great lengths to make sound financial decisions.

Funds designated as “Tithes” and “Offerings” will be used for general church expenses. Such items include living expenses for our pastors and staff, operational expenses to run the church, and other administrative expenses. We endeavor to keep our overhead low every way we possibly can so we can sow into our city as much as possible. “Tithes” and “Offerings” may also be used for CityLight Local Compassion, our local outreach arm, and for donations to other partner organizations in New York City.

All funds designated for “Missions” will be deposited into a separate account created specifically for CityLight Global Compassion. We will never use “Missions” donations for operating expenses. If you’d like your donation to go to a specific ministry, please let us know and we will designate it accordingly.

We pray that God blesses you in your finances. God wants you blessed, so that you can be a blessing to others. Thank you for your radical generosity. It does not go unnoticed, and it will not go to waste.

Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this,” says the Lord of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it.” – Mal 3:10
