At Life Fellowship, we believe a significant part of our worship each week happens when we honor the Lord with our resources.
The scripture teaches us to bring our “first fruits” or tithe to God’s storehouse. (Malachi 3:8-12) Tithe is literally translated “tenth.” By bringing a tenth of our financial increase to the church, we are declaring that God is first in our life. We are also doing our part to help the Gospel to go forth in our city and world.
Our offering is our free-will giving over and above the tithe. This is sacrificial giving towards special church projects, missions and evangelism, outreach to the poor and disadvantaged, and other opportunities that the Lord puts in our heart. Thank you for your faithfulness to God and His church in your giving worship.
First Things First
The first belongs to God. We find this principle all through God's Word. Tithing, giving God the first ten percent of our income to the local church, is the primary way we acknowledge that God is first.
Know Giving, Know Life
Giving is the antidote for materialism. Whereas the tithe is giving ten percent of your income to the local church, an offering is given out of the ninety percent of your income. Therefore the offering is giving over and above the tithe. The Bible says that by giving generously we are able to "take hold of the life that is truly life." You aren't really living unless you are freely giving.
(I Timothy 6:18,19)
The Treasure Test
Giving is the only area in the Bible where God invites us to test Him. Give your tithe (the first 10% of your income) to God and see if He does not open the floodgates of heaven to bless you in ways that you never dreamed possible.
An Eternal Investment
Even when the stock market's down, you can make an investment that pays dividends for a lifetime and beyond. By investing in the life-changing message of Jesus, you can leverage your money for eternal purposes.
(1 Timothy 6:7)
