About This Message


Edge Church Mission Statement: People helping people, find and follow Christ.

1. What are the core values of Edge Church?

a) Life Transformation

And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
Acts 2:47 (NIV)

b) Levels of Excellence

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men…
Colossians 3:23 (NIV)

c) Loyalty

Obey your spiritual leaders, and do what they say. Their work is to watch over your souls, and they are accountable to God. Give them reason to do this with joy and not with sorrow. That would certainly not be for your benefit.
Hebrews 13:17 (NLT)

And I told them of the hand of my God which had been upon me for good, and also of the words which the king had spoken to me. And they said, “Let us rise up and build.” So they strengthened their hands for the good work.
Nehemiah 2:18 (RSV)

2.  How can I “rise up” and to fulfill the vision of Edge Church?

a) What is a tithe?

A tenth of the produce of the land, whether grain or fruit, is the Lord’s, and is holy.
Leviticus 27:30 (TLB)

b) Why should I tithe?

Bring this tithe to the designated place of worship… Doing this will teach you always to fear the Lord your God.
Deuteronomy 14:23 (NLT)

c) How do I tithe?

On the first day of the week, each of you is to set something aside and save in keeping with how he is prospering, so that no collections will need to be made when I come.
1 Corinthians 16:2 (CSB)

Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.  And God is able to bless you abundantly. So that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
2 Corinthians 9:7-8 (NIV)

d) What happens when I tithe?
