is an essential part
of carrying out GOD’s plan
in HIS church.
GOD’s church is to be financed GOD’s way, following HIS plan, as is clearly delineated in HIS Word; not by commercialism (selling of goods and services), nor by pan-handling (solicitation of funds from individuals, groups, or governments). It is GOD’s plan for HIS church to be financially supported by tithes and offerings.
Stewardship is spiritual and biblical in character and not promotional or materialistic. Tithes and offerings is GOD’s plan for the support of HIS church. Tithes is what we owe. We pay tithes and give offerings. Offerings are gifts freely given to the work of GOD.

The House Of The LORD JESUS is a part of the church of the living GOD. Our focus is ministry to people and pleasing GOD, not acquisition and maintenance of stuff. People are the real assets of the church. Acknowledging the importance of, and GOD’s mandate for, fiscal accountability; with joy we utilize GOD’s gift of honorable devoted congregates, and embrace HIS plan for financing the ministry here at The House Of The LORD JESUS.
In the area of Finances GOD has set before us a wonderful blessing for obeying HIM.
Malachi 3:10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, 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. 11 And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the Lord of hosts.
Yes, even in this lawless age, where every man is right in his own eyes, The House Of The LORD JESUS refuses to rob GOD, and we fully embrace HIS plan for financing the church. We believe everyone should pay tithes on all increase and regularly and systematically give in offerings. Take the challenge. GOD is faithful! Bank on it.
We are living in a time of inflation, deflation, stagnation, recession, and depression. GOD has not been caught off guard. HE has made provisions for HIS church for this hour, GOD’s plan for winning in this financial “turmoil” is tithes and offerings given to HIM. Try GOD and see if HE won’t rebuke the devourer and open the windows of heaven for you.
Take the challenge.
GOD is faithful!
Bank on it.
