Online Tithing & Giving
We want to thank you for your giving to the ministry of Lake Tahoe Christian Fellowship. The Word of God is clear that we receive covenant blessings from God as we are faithful to the tithe and give (Malachi 3:10-12). May the Lord richly bless each one of you!
What Is The Purpose Of The Tithe?
God ordained the tithing principle for practical purposes. It is a spiritual discipline, which was established for several important reasons. Following is a list some of the more prominent reasons for the tithe:
1. Tithing is a Means of Worship — The scripture exhorts us to “Honor the Lord with your possessions, and with the first fruits of all your increase” (Proverbs 3:9) First and foremost, tithing represents a practical expression of worship unto the Lord.
2. It is a Mean of Building Faith — Tithing is a means of reinforcing our confidence, faith, and dependence in God’s promise of provision and support. (Malachi 3:10)
3. It Provides Financial Support for the Ministry — The tithe represents God’s system of economic support for those called to full-time ministry. “But the tithes….I have given to the Levites” (Numbers 18:24)
4. It Provides Financial Support for the Church — It is God’s ordained method of meeting the financial needs of the church. “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse that there may be food in my house” (Malachi 3:10)
