Is Tithing part
of the New Covenant?

Many churches teach that tithing (giving ten percent of your income) to your local church is a biblical requirement. Some Christians may give more, some may give less. And the pastor may not technically care if you’re giving ten percent, as long as you’re giving. The money collected from these regular tithe payments is often essential to the operation of the church. But, does the New Testament require Christians to tithe? What did financial support go toward in the New Testament church? Is it appropriate to use an Old Testament obligation to give a particular amount in order to instruct Christians today that they must give to their local church? If the New Testament doesn’t continue the practice of tithing, what practices does it provide regarding giving and financial support in the church?

For more information on
tithing, giving, and financial support in the New Testament, please see our studies entitled:

Q:I'm new here. Where should I get started?
The arrangement of topics to the left provides a recommended reading order. It is designed to reflect a step-by-step progression from more basic topics to more complex ones. However, it is not necessary to follow this order. Those who are more familiar with certain topics may easily read whichever studies are of interest without first going through all of the earlier topics in the list.
