The Living Word is a church, a 501(c)3 organization (Tax ID No. 86-0568326) that is independently audited annually. We know that trust and transparency in church financials is important to the donors. At Living Word you can give with confidence. We are an active member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA). Our annual financial reports are publicly posted at ecfa.org.
We believe that the idea of bringing tithes and offerings to the storehouse is not something that died with the Law. In fact, it existed hundreds of years BEFORE the Law, and, according to Hebrews 7:8, Jesus is still collecting the tithe today as the true High Priest. However, tithing is not a rule and has no bearing on your salvation or how much God loves you (or how much we love you). Tithing is a principle of God (and not a law) that He established that we believe allows His people to be exempt from the fruit of the world’s systems. We believe that the tithe (10% of all of our increase) belongs to God and that our offerings (those gifts over and above the tithe) are a means to express our love and appreciation to God. We believe that where your treasure is, there also is your heart.
We believe that it is important to remember that we are always bringing our tithes and offerings to Jesus and not just a building, ministry or program. Sure, we may designate our gifts, but in our heart we must always be bringing the gift to Jesus.
