Tithing and Giving
Studies of the biblical concept of tithing and giving encourage the believer to partner with God in the expansion of His kingdom in the earth by tithing-giving 10 percent of all money they earn or receive and willingly giving in addition to their tithe.
Christians teach that tithing and giving reveal each individual’s position as a steward of their resources, acknowledging God as owner.
Studies of tithing and giving highlight the benefits of wise stewardship while at the same time showing the disadvantages of unwise stewardship
“And he sat down opposite the treasury and watched the people putting money into the offering box. Many rich people put in large sums. And a poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which make a penny. And he called his disciples to him and said to them, “Truly, I say to you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the offering box. For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on.”

Tithe literally means “tenth.” In the Old Testament, the tithe referred to God’s people giving the first 10 percent of their gross income (also called “first fruits”) to God to fund the Levite priests’ ministry (Num. 18:21–29; 27:30). In addition to that, there were other tithes and offerings required of God’s people, including 10 percent paid for festivals to build community and for celebration (Deut. 12:10–11, 17–18; 14:22–27), 3 percent given to help the poor (Deut. 14:28–29), crop gleanings collected for the poor and aliens (Lev. 19:9–10), and other occasional additional tithes above and beyond regular giving (Neh. 10:32–33). All total, the “mandatory” Old Testament tithe resulted in over 25 percent of a family’s gross income going to God and ministry.
At EMMI the requirement as per 2020 is 21.00$ CDN and a voluntary donation when possible, plus contribution for events, also the purchase of our partners merchandises.
Members must make every effort to avoid accepting donations or gifts that would knowingly place a hardship on the donor or their family. Furthermore members will not accept donations or gifts that would place the donor’s welfare, or their families welfare in jeopardy in any way.
EMMI Membership is with a donation of 21.00$ for lay member and a donation of 65.00$ for clergy-person per year.
