“Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple. If you do,” says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, “I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in! Try it! Put me to the test! - Malachi 3:10 (NLT)
At Hosanna Church, we are a church that aspires to look more like Jesus through our irresistible love, generosity and unity.
God doesn’t ask us to test Him any other place but in the book of Malachi. When teaching about generosity God said through the prophet Malachi, “Test me in this and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven.” However, this isn’t about our money. When it comes to our finances, what God really wants is our trust; He wants our hearts.
Tithing is a giving principle that teaches us to return the first 10% of our income to “God’s storehouse” (Malachi 3:10). The tithe is one of the most tangible ways we can worship God. It declares that He is first in our lives and our hearts are open to His plans. If you're not tithing already, a great way to start is with the Hosanna 90-Day Challenge.
At Hosanna we wholeheartedly believe that God blesses those who live with irresistible generosity, so we want to issue a challenge: Tithe for three months and see what God does. If you don't start to see a transformation in your heart or in your life, we will refund all of your additional giving.—no questions asked. (If you have questions, take a look at our FAQs below or email —we’re here to help!)
Let's give Him our heart and watch what He does.
