Have you discovered the joy of giving?
At Word of Life Ministry we believe we are blessed to be a blessing! We give out of love in obedience to God's word concerning His tithe and offerings.  It's not a debt that we owe - it's a seed that we sow.  By honoring God with what belongs to Him and being committed to our core value of Extravagant Generosity, Word of Life Ministry is able to be utilized by Him as a channel of blessing that is having life-changing Kingdom impact in Fort Payne and in the nations of the earth!

Why we give.

Giving is one of the central themes in the Bible. Jesus talked more about this subject than Heaven, Hell, or prayer.  To understand what it means to be a Christ-follower, we must also understand what it means to be a giver.

What does "tithe" mean?

Since we are in the New Covenant we are not required to give.  However, we don't give because we have to, we give because its our response to how God has blessed us.  So we encourage people to tithe, meaning that you set aside the first fruits of your labor/income to the Lord.

We use 10% as a good point of reference for people to aim towards because it is what the bible teaches, but ultimately the Lord wants you to acknowledge him first with your giving (even if it's not 10%).

Tithing, giving God the first 10% of our income to the local church, is the primary, practical way we acknowledge that God is first.

  "Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops; then your barns will be tilled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine." - Proverbs 3:9-10

What does "offering" mean?

An offering is giving over and beyond 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.

"Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.  In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life." - 1 Timothy 6:18-19

The gift of giving.

The gift of giving is a spiritual gift that God gives to some people.

"We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us.....if it is giving, then give generously." - Romans 12:6 & 8

It is a spirit-given capacity and desire to serve God by giving of your material resources, far beyond the tithe, to further the work of God.
