Giving

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

- Matthew 6:21

Why we give.

God is generous and so he calls us to be as well.  What we do with what God has given us shows the world where our hearts are at and helps proclaim the gospel. We want to glorify God with every area of our lives, and that includes what we do with our finances.

At Life Words Church we practice tithing for the support of Christ's Body, the church, as God commands. We recognize that returning 10% of our income is the Biblical standard of tithing. The returning of tithes and giving of offerings is worship to Jesus Christ and is an expression of the love relationship between the individual giver and the Lord. Tithes and offerings are worship, and must not be considered as a business transaction, but as an expression of gratitude toward God.

"The purpose of tithing is to teach you to always put God in first place in your life" - Deuteronomy 14:23

Give In Person

Each week, there is a time to worship God through the giving of tithes and offerings.  This is an act of worship for our members and regular attenders, as the fulfillment of the Biblical commandment to give a tithe of everything God blesses us with back to Him.  At the end of each service, we pray during our time of giving, as the ushers pass around the offering baskets and collect the tithes and offering for the week.  This allows Life Words Church the means to reach more people in our community and share the hope of Christ to a lost world.
