Privacy Policy


When you tithe, you’re trusting God with your finances. Tithing is a biblical principle. God calls us to give the first 10% of our income back to Him. We’ve seen God provide abundantly in our church, and we know He will provide abundantly for you and your family when you put Him first in your finances. In fact, it’s the one area in the Bible where God tells you to test Him. "Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it." Malachi 3:10 NIV

Your giving is changing our community!

It's impossible to out-give God, but you'll never regret trying!

God gives us good things we don’t deserve and could never earn, like grace and forgiveness. He gave the ultimate gift, His son, for our sins.

One of our core values is to be irrationally generous, and God created you with a generous spirit. We want to help you embrace it by giving beyond your tithe!

With your giving, Passion is financially benefitting these 9 local organizations:
