THEOLOGY OF ADVANCEMENT
“The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.” – Psalm 24:1
At International Christian Center we are a community marked by God’s grace and committed to sharing the love of Jesus with those around us. We believe God accomplishes His purposes throughout ordinary people like us. By managing God’s blessings, God’s way, for God’s glory we will leave a lasting legacy of love in our city and throughout the world.
Together, our vision is to lead people to become fully devoted followers of Christ. A vision of this magnitude requires each of us to be fully committed and invested in bringing it about. We honor God by wisely stewarding all He entrusts to us toward accomplishing His purposes. This means giving freely and sacrificially of our time, talents, and treasure to others, without expecting anything in return. This type of giving is inspired by love and gratitude for all that God has generously given to us. We give because He first gave to us.
We want everyone at International Christian Center to grow as disciples and followers of Christ and be a part of fulfilling our vision. Therefore, we must embrace a biblical perspective of stewardship and generosity, to grow Kingdom resources for Kingdom purposes. When we do, we will know the joy of seeing God working through us as we help others become more like Jesus.
Fully Formed Disciples & Followers of Jesus understand what Christ has done for them (Grace), who they are in Christ (Identity), and have set their hearts to patten their lives after Christ’s until they look and live like Jesus (Life Patterns).

What is tithing?
A tithe—which just means “tenth”—is defined as the first 10% of a person’s income that is to be given back to the local church. Tithing is a principle that is taught throughout the entire Bible. When we tithe, we are expressing worship in a tangible way by putting God first in our lives.
Bringing our tithes is an opportunity for us to give God our thanks, show God we trust Him, and fight against greed in our hearts…all while allowing us to be a part of the most important work in life that is spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ!
If you would like to read more about what the Bible has to say about tithing, check out these passages: Leviticus 27:30, Proverbs 3:9-10, Malachi 3:6-10, Matthew 6:19-24 and 1 Corinthians 16:1-2.
Why do we give?
We believe the top competitor for our devotion to Jesus is money (Matthew 6:24). Giving allows us to demonstrate that He is more important to us than material things.
We believe you can’t outgive God, so when you’re trusting Him with your tithes and offerings we know that He will bless the rest (Proverbs 3:9-10 and Malachi 3:10-12).
We think Christians should be the most generous people (2 Corinthians 9:6) on earth to support worthy causes, and there is no organization with more potential to change the world than the local church (Ephesians 3:10)!
ABOUT OUR SPECIAL OFFERING
While there are many worthy charitable causes, nothing can take the place of the local church when it is active and focused on a lost and hurting world. For that reason, this Special Offering concentrates exclusively on projects with exceptional Kingdom ROI (return on investment). These are Christ-centered, high-impact opportunities in three distinct areas.
