Here at Great Harvest Baptist Church we believe it is the responsibility of the believer to choose how much he or she gives to the Lord. Yet we respect the clear biblical teachings on tithes and offerings and believe that God's Word explicitly teaches for Christians to be bountiful givers. God says in his Word that he will bless and ye shall reap if you follow his commandments and give unto his work. All money donated will be used directly for God's work through this church and is subject to the pastor's final authority on how it is used.

2 Corinthians 9:6 - "But this [I say], He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully."
Malachi 3:10 - "Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that [there shall] not [be room] enough [to receive it]."
