“Bring the full tenth into the storehouse so that there may be food in My house. Test Me in this way,” says the Lord of Hosts. “See if I will not open the floodgates of heaven and pour out a blessing for you without measure.” Malachi 3:10
Every day they devoted themselves to meeting together in the temple complex, and broke bread from house to house. They ate their food with a joyful and humble attitude, praising God and having favor with all the people. And every day the Lord added to them those who were being saved. Acts 2:46-47
We believe strongly in the necessity for every Believer to be an active part of a local Body of Christ, a local church. The Body of Christ should be marked in part by the mutual commitment together of every member of the Body. Part of that commitment is the mutual commitment to gather the tithes and offerings of the Body together for the work of the church as directed by the church. Denominations, while a para-church organization, in many ways serve as an extension of this commitment of Believers together.
As such, we strongly urge individual Believers to bring their whole tithe to their local Body as part of that commitment to the Body. We likewise urge local churches to support the denomination and the missions agencies of their denomination as part of the mutual commitment to that denomination.
If God is calling you as an individual to give over and above your tithe – or if God is calling you as a church to give over and above your denominational commitments to the work of reaching the peoples of Viet Nam with the Gospel of Jesus Christ then we welcome the opportunity to help facilitate that giving through strategic projects. Please contact us for more details or to discuss giving to these or other strategic projects.
