God's plan for the support of His work on this earth is through the tithe and freewill offerings of His people. The tithe is the main source of funding for the total proclamation of the gospel to all the world by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. This includes a balanced and comprehensive evangelistic outreach to the public and the spiritual nurturing of church members. Because the tithe is reserved for a special purpose, freewill offerings must provide the funding for many functions of the gospel work.
Offerings are special gifts, beyond the tithe, that express gratitude for God's goodness in our lives. Paul gives instruction about offerings in 2 Corinthians 8-9. He says in 8:12, "For if the willingness is there, the gift is acceptable according to what one has, not according to what he does not have." In 2 Corinthians 9:6-9, the Scriptures say that we will be rewarded according to our generosity and that we should give joyfully from a willing heart. The outcome of generous giving is that God receives praise and we receive blessing. Our desire is for God to be praised and for His people to be blessed, so we encourage everyone to trust God by returning a tithe and by giving generously beyond that.
