Tithes and Offerings
Giving money is a way of expressing our worship to God. Everything that is good in our lives comes from God. We return to God our title and give to God our offerings. The tithe is a tenth of our income. The first mention of the tithe is in Gen 14:18 - 20 where Abraham gave a tithe to Melchizedek the priest. The Law of Moses establishes the giving of the tithe in Lev 27:30-32.
In the New Testament, the Lord Jesus mentions the tithe as something that we should continue along with the other important duties of the law such as justice, mercy and faithfulness (Matt 23:23). The Apostle Paul further mentions that our attitude towards giving should be cheerful and generous (2 Cor 9:6-13).
With the tithes and offerings, the church is able to be God's hands extended to our community and around the world.
Christian Life Center supports many missionaries and a variety of projects around the world that actively share the love of Jesus Christ. These ministries include establishing local churches, feeding impoverished children and their families, caring for orphans, upholding the persecuted believers, providing medical/dental care for communities and creating a loving home for former street children. In addition, we respond to disaster relief as God enables us.
