PAY YOUR TITHE
All members in Destiny Changers International are expected to pay their tithes (10% of their income) to the ministry on a consistent basis. All Pastors must be an example to the rest of the members in the ministry, and therefore are required to pay their tithes, vows and offerings. We believe in the absolute word of God and obey God's word to be faithful tithers.
Tithing is a condition of the heart, if you love God and obey His commandments, you will obey His word to give to Him what is due. Malachi 3 outlines all the spiritual , physical and financial benefits of giving your tithes faithfully.

‘A tithe of everything from the land, whether grain from the soil or fruit from the trees, belongs to the LORD; it is holy to the LORD. Whoever would redeem any of their tithe must add a fifth of the value to it. Every tithe of the herd and flock—every tenth animal that passes under the shepherd’s rod—will be holy to the LORD. No one may pick out the good from the bad or make any substitution. If anyone does make a substitution, both the animal and its substitute become holy and cannot be redeemed.’ ”These are the commands the LORD gave Moses at Mount Sinai for the Israelites. Leviticus 27:30-34

That there will not be room enough to receive it. “And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, So that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, Nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field,” Says the Lord of hosts; “And all nations will call you blessed, For you will be a delightful land,” says the Lord of hosts."

But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a few cents.

They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything—all she had to live on.”
