Throughout the Bible God is revealed to us as a creative, generous, abundant God. He doesn’t comprehend “not enough” because by His very nature He is abundant – more than enough. He doesn’t comprehend “impossible” because by the words of His mouth he speaks things into existence. Not only is this God able to create and provide for His creation, He actually desires to. God is so good that His desire is always to bless us. Throughout the Scriptures we see a God who loves to bless his creation.

For some reason, though, we find ourselves trading in this narrative of abundance that he invites us into for a narrative of scarcity... 

God can speak things into existence and yet we live as if there’s not enough. 

We stress, we worry, we fear that there isn’t enough.

God so desperately wants to break this scarcity mindset off of our lives that he challenges us to test Him so that we can see once and for all that He is the abundant, generous God that Scripture shows us.

We see this in Malachi 3, where God says, “Test me and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it!” WOW. What an incredible promise. 

God wants to unleash the fullness of his blessings into your life, 

and He wants you to dare him to do it!

This is an amazing promise, but it is a promise that comes with a condition. Before God invites us to challenge Him, He challenges us: “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse…” God challenges us to break off the mindset of scarcity by putting him first, putting our faith on display!

Tithing isn’t about our money, it’s about our relationship with God. God doesn’t want anything from us, He wants everything for us. The Bible teaches us that when we trust God with what he asks of us, 

His blessings overflow in our lives.

Bringing the first 10% of our income to God may feel overwhelming, but Malachi 3:10 tells us that when we tithe and bring back to God what is already his, he will bless us. Tithing is about learning to trust that God will keep that promise.

Countless people experience God’s blessings when they tithe, but often the first step is the hardest one to take. Through this 90 Day Faith Challenge, we are collectively taking this step together as a church family, believing that as we match our step of faith (tithing) with an attitude of faith (expectation), God will be true to his word, and we will see more of God’s blessings in our lives than ever before!

90 Day Faith Challenge FAQ


What is the 90 Day Faith challenge? 

The 90 Day Faith Challenge is a faith journey to experience God’s blessing in your life like never before. God challenges us in Malachi 3 to test Him with our faith through tithing, and see if He won’t open the floodgates of heaven and pour blessing into our lives! For 90 days we are going to take God at His word by honoring him with the first 10% of our income. As we do, we expect to see his blessing poured out in our lives!


What does it mean to “test” God?

Specifically, Malachi teaches us to test God by honoring and trusting him through the biblical principle of tithing (bringing the first 10% of our income back to God). This act of putting God first displays our trust in him, and he promises to respond by pouring out “so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.”


So, this is just about tithing?

Nope! God’s whole point in Malachi 3 is that when you take a step of faith by trusting Him with the tithe matched with an attitude of faith and expectation He will prove Himself in your life through incredible blessings. God honors those who trust him with their whole heart, and - like Jesus says - wherever your treasure is, your heart is there too!


What exactly is tithing?

“Tithe” is a word used in both the Old and New Testaments that means “a tenth of.” A tithe is the first 10% of our gross income. Tithing is the spiritual discipline of returning to God what is his. Throughout the Bible, we see that the first is God’s and tithing brings back to God what is his in an act of honor and trust.


What is the difference between a tithe and an offering?

The tithe is the first 10% of my income; an offering is what I give beyond that.


What is the significance of 10%?

Scripture repeatedly teaches that God is a God of order. We are called to give God our first and our best. Jesus reiterates this in Matthew 6.33, where he says, “Seek first the kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” What we put first matters, and if we put God first, the other areas of our lives will be taken care of. While we don’t know exactly why 10% is the exact number God gives us, we do know that (1) Scripture is consistent with specifically 10% and (2) it is to be the first 10%.


How do I participate?

We will officially begin our 90 Day faith journey on May 22, 2023. You can join the challenge by filling out a commitment card. You can also sign up by texting “FAITH” to the number 609-900-7547. Be sure to get your free gift from our Welcome Team once you sign up!


What if I already tithe, can I still participate?

Of course! This journey is all about matching our step of faith (tithing) with an attitude of faith (expectation). We encourage you to join us with expectation, believing that God is going to move in your life like never before. What are you believing God for over the next 90 days?


If I sign up, will someone be following up with me to make sure I’m tithing?

Nope! This is a step of faith that you are taking, and it is between you and God. By committing to this challenge, you are asking God to fill your heart with faith as you seek to be faithful. If you are committed to this challenge, we encourage you to find someone who can keep you accountable throughout the 90 days (Your LHT Circle is a great start!). We will do our best to send you encouragement and scripture, but no one will be checking up on your giving!

What do I do after the 90 days?

The 90 Day Faith Challenge doesn’t really end after 90 days! Instead, these 90 days are meant to build our faith, watch God move, and give us a template for the rest of our lives. We really believe that God honors his word, and God’s promise in Malachi 3 is clear: “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it” (Malachi 3.10, NIV).
