"Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.
Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation. 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. 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. And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the
LORD of hosts."
Your tithe belongs to your church. Offerings are to be given above the tithes to genuine Bible-believing ministries.
Do not ever say, "I'm not responsible for what they do with my money after I give it." That is totally irresponsible. The
Bible says that we are to know them that labour among us. (I Thessalonians 5:12).
I have heard it preached that when we tithe the windows of Heaven are opened up but it is our
belief that the offerings bring in the overflow.
OFFERINGS / DONATIONS
Offerings are seed. Sowing seed brings a like harvest. Every seed brings forth fruit after its kind. Your offerings
bring about a specific harvest. You sow money in a particular ministry or you give to the poor and there will come back to
you a multiplied return.
Offerings sow seed in your fields in expectation of harvest that produces full, undamaged harvests for
We are accountable to not only those who support us but ultimately to God for how we spend the money he has entrusted
to us. Of course we want your seed to grow so in the day of harvest, we will all be partakers of the great reward set aside
in our names. It is because of this that we keep careful records of all your gifts to this ministry. We use some of these
funds for our Bible college and seminary schooling to train pastors, leaders, christian Sunday school teachers,
and others. When you give to our outreach programs, you can rest assured that a large percentage of our budget goes
to the ministry and missions within Mexico. The kingdom of God is our total burden. Pray with us that the Word of God might
prevail and multipy around this globe as we set our daily standard in living to that of Jesus Christ, our Saviour and
It is because of this that I urge you to support our outreach to the Mexican people. By doing this, it enables us to
minister to the hearts and souls of the lost people and also administer Gods teachings to the saved that are actively involved
in our churches.
May God bless you and keep you in his everlasting love.
All offerings in the form of check, money order, cashiers check or cash can be mailed to our
