There can be tax advantages to giving long term, appreciated securities (held for more than one year). By gifting shares directly to our brokerage account (versus selling shares and writing a check), you can generally deduct the full value of the shares and avoid the capital gains tax. We recommend you consult your tax advisor before making gifts.

For those over the age of 70.5 and subject to mandatory IRA distributions, the IRS now allows donors to make a gift of up to $100,000 directly to the church. While the gift itself is NOT deductible, it does count toward your required annual distribution AND the value of the gift reduces your income - which, in most cases, is a greater benefit than a deduction. We recommend you consult your tax advisor before making gifts.

 We are excited to announce BHBC has partnered with the premier Estate Planning firm, PhilanthroCorp.

Why We Give

What is a tithe or offering?

The word "tithe" literally means "a tenth" or 10%.  It represents the first 10% of your income. An offering is anything you give above and beyond the 10%.

Why do we tithe?

Tithing supports the ongoing ministry of the church, but more importantly it teaches us to put God first in our lives. Tithing is a reminder that God is the owner and supplier of everything we have (1 Chron. 29:11-12).

In Malachi 3:10 (NIV), God says: "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 you will not have room enough for it."

God is giving you a personal invitation to an outpouring of his blessing in your life. This is the only place in Scripture where God tells us to put him to the test. In other words, God says, "Go ahead. I dare you. See if you can outgive me." 

If tithing is an Old Testament principle, is it still relevant today?

Absolutely. Jesus affirmed the tithe in Matthew 23:23 where He tells the Pharisees, "You should have practiced the latter (justice, mercy and faithfulness) without neglecting the former (tithing).

Is God wise? Do you trust Him?

These are two fundamental questions behind the act of giving. If God is wise, then you should listen to what He says about financial stewardship. If you trust Him, then you should trust Him with all aspects of your life, including your finances. Accept God's invitation to put Him to the test. Start tithing faithfully and watch what He does in and through your life.
