MODULAR I

The Theological and Biblical Foundations of Church Tithing

In the words of Dr. Jon Cook, “theological study is essential to build the framework every Christian need, to develop a practical understanding of God and his ways.” The Theological and Biblical Foundations of Church tithing is focused on equipping students with the using of the Christian theological aspects of the Plan, Work, and the Nature of God; and the appropriation of the correct biblical perspectives to make meaning of the tithing of Abraham to Melchizedek for two things: (1) Strengthen their Christian apologetics (the defense) for the practice of Church tithing today. (2) Entrenchment in the theological and biblical foundations that support the pedagogy and the practice of tithing, for creating the God focused relational driven culture of Church tithing, with the goal of optimizing the spiritual and the financial vitality of their local churches. The Theological and Biblical Foundations of Church Tithing consists of the following lessons:

Christian Theology and The Tithing of Abraham

The Legitimacy of Church Tithing Today

The Status of Melchizedek and Abraham in God’s Church Tithing Program

 

 

MODULAR II

The Historical Trend of Church Tithing

This lesson introduces students to the historical trends of Church tithing beginning in the 4th century with Emperor Constantine, the influence of the Catholic Church in the 6th century, its proliferation in the 1500s with the emergence of the Protestant churches, to its present state especially with the Evangelical Church Movement. The ethos of this lesson is to give students the framework to critique the biblical premise that founded the origination of the practice of tithing in the local church, that has stayed its practice even to the present. The objective of this critique is to engage students to form the correct and the true biblical foundation consistent with the theological tenets of the New Testament, for the teaching and the practice of the Church tithing that God benchmarked with the tithing of Abraham for the spiritual and sacred benefit of the Church.

MODULAR III

The Foundational Principles of Church Tithing

On the grounds of the theological and biblical bases of God’s modeling of Church tithing with Abraham, students will cover in this study the essential things that give integrity, credibility, and consistency to the Foundational Principles that God benchmarked in Abraham to serve as the underpinnings for Church tithing. From the standpoint of giving importance to God and his ways, students need to know and be entrenched in these Foundational Principles of Church tithing for optimizing its practice in their local churches, according to the established standards that God made with the tithing of Abraham. The Foundational Principles of Church tithing consists of the following lessons:

 

The Rubrics of God for Church Tithing

The Biblical Assumptions of Giving

The 5 Christian Persuasions for Church Tithing

The Spiritual Dynamics of Church Tithing

The Sacred Dynamics of Church Tithing

The Fundamental Benefits of Church Tithing

 

MODULAR IV

The Curricula Approach of Church Tithing in the Local Church

There is an educational dictum stated in this saying: The purpose of education must inform the practice of education; the practice of education must bring out the purpose of education.

We can state this dictum in terms of Church tithing. In this way: The purpose of Church tithing must inform the practice of Church tithing; the practice of Church tithing must bring out the purpose of Church tithing.

 

The purpose and practice of Church tithing cannot be separated.

                                

Description

  • Conduct the Tithing to Grow in Christ Devotional Workshop, to give the local church congregation a prevue to the plausibility in connecting the giving of their tithes with a daily spiritual communion with God and experience Christian growth in their trust and loving relations with Him. So that the congregation would have the psychological and spiritual disposition to giving their tithes out of a growing trusting and loving relations to God

We will teach you the history of tithing and how you can learn from it when developing your tithing program.
