Mormons follow the ancient law of tithing that is found in the Old Testament. Through paying tithing (10 percent of one’s increase), members are promised amazing blessings.

With money from tithing paid by members, the LDS Church builds up the Kingdom of God on earth. This means temples are built, Books of Mormon are printed, and the poor are given help, just to name a few things. There are many other ways the Mormon church uses tithing money, including to build and maintain meeting houses (chapels), run the missionary program, and support the Church’s system of higher education.

The LDS Church also has many businesses that they own that make profit. The Church then takes that money and uses it for welfare projects, to support those leaders who give up their worldly vocations to spend a lifetime in church service, and in other ways.

When LDS Church members pay tithing they are given incredible blessings. In Malachi 3:10 it says: “… see if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it”.
