World Conference Resolution 1314

This resolution reminds us that one way stewardship is expressed is through the spiritual practice of tithing.

Mission and Tithing

Adopted 11 June 2016  

Whereas, Community of Christ has agreed that “tithing is a spiritual practice that demonstrates willingness to offer every dimension of one’s life to God” (Doctrine and Covenants 165:2d); therefore, be it 

Resolved, As these words find expression in the church, the following affirmations guide us: 

Stewardship is whole-life response to God’s grace and the ministry of Jesus Christ; 

One way stewardship is expressed is through the spiritual practice of tithing;  

Although tithing literally means a tenth, giving generously to one’s true capacity is the spirit of tithing; 

Tithing of time, talent, treasure, and testimony supports local and worldwide church ministries in pursuit of Jesus Christ’s mission; 

All disciples are called to live as faithful stewards who tithe; and be it further 

Resolved, That the First Presidency and Presiding Bishopric provide resources to support priesthood and leaders in developing disciples who understand faithful tithing as part of the six principles of A Disciple’s Generous Response.
