Why We Give

God has given us everything we have. We merely serve as stewards of what He has entrusted into our care. That’s why giving is an integral part of worship! It is an expression of love and reverence to Him and illustrates our desire to partner with Him in the work of the Kingdom.

Scripture teaches that the tithe is the first 10% of our income. It is the first fruits of our labor to be used to carry out Kingdom work.

At The Way Bible Church, your gifts are prayerfully used so that others may know and experience the love of Christ. Because you give, people are impacted and lives are changed!

God’s word instructs us to bring the tithe to the storehouse.

Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS ONLINE GIVING?

Online giving is the ability to give a donation or schedule a series of donations using your credit/debit card or bank account ontwbcss.com.

HOW CAN I MAXIMIZE MY WEEKLY GIVING?

Gifts by cash, check and bank account (ACH) have the lowest transaction cost, meaning more of your money stays directly at The Way BibleChurch.  You also have the option to cover the small fee when you give to make sure your full amount is going directly to The Way Bible Church if using the Online Giving option.

WHAT IS A CONTRIBUTION SCHEDULE?

This is similar to a subscription.  You can choose how often you would like an automatic donation to be made weekly, every two weeks or monthly.

CAN I JUST TRY THIS BY GIVING ONE TIME?

Sure.  When you select the “Give” button on twbcss.com/give it will automatically take you to the online giving page where you can set up an account or make a one-time donation.

WHAT IF I WANT TO CHANGE MY ONLINE GIVING SCHEDULE OR STOP IT?

On the left-handed side under your account, select, “MyProfile.”  This will allow you to edit your donation, date or amount, or cancel it.

CAN I USE MY DEBIT CARD OR CREDIT CARD?

Yes.  We accept any debt or credit card issued by Visa, MasterCard or Discover.

Used within the parameters, 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, and then pay off the balance in full. For these people, we offer the option of using a debit or credit card to give.  We strongly discourage those who have ongoing credit card debt from exercising this option.

CAN I USE AN ELECTRONIC CHECK?

Yes, simply choose the “Bank Account” option on the payment page.  For larger banks, such as Chase and Capital One, you will be able to give immediately with this option.  For local banks, such as Alliance Bank and City National Bank you will need to log-in to your bank and verify a small micro-deposit.

HOW SHOULD I TITHE IF MY INCOME VARIES FROM PAY PERIOD TO PAY PERIOD?

Depending on which is more feasible for your situation, you can handle tithing with a fluctuating income in a coupe 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 time each week or month throughout the year.  

SHOULD I TITHE OFF MY GROSS EARNINGS OR THE NET AMOUNT OF MY PAYCHECK?

Scripture doesn’t use the literal terms “net” or “gross.”  It’s more important to note that the spirit in which we give is of greatest value to God. He tells us in 2 Corinthians 9:7 “each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give; not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
