Adventist church members hears and repeats this scripture every Sabbath in church: "Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house.." Mal 3:10.  After this reading/repeating,  members are required to give 10% of their income  to the church(submitting to the storehouse).   

Where is the storehouse? 

According to the Adventist Principles of Tithing

"Tithe should only be used for the support of personnel who are engaged in evangelistic and nurturing ministries."

"The operation of the local church is important but should not be supported from tithe."

“The tithe is not to be consumed in incidental expenses. That belongs to the work of the church members. They are to support their church by their gifts and offerings.”-Letter 81, 1897.

 "Tithe should only be used for the support of personnel who are engaged in evangelistic and nurturing ministries."

The Bible says bring tithes to the storehouse.  The SDA organization interprets that this storehouse is not the church expenses and it is not to be used to care for any financial needs of the people.
