At Lifegate, we know giving changes lives — ours and the people we’re reaching. We also know giving to a church is a statement of trust: trust in God and in the leadership and vision of a church. Knowing this, we are committed to stewarding God’s resources with integrity and openness.
Your decision to give is an eternal investment in the lives of many people who are part of Lifegate or are on their way to discovering life in Jesus, both among our neighbors and in the nations of the world. Giving matters greatly to God and reflects His outrageous generosity to us.
We believe the reason we are blessed by God is to be a blessing to others!
Why do churches care so much about my money?
We want to focus on the things Jesus taught about, and money is one of the most frequently discussed topics in the Bible. God knows that we give our money to the things we value, and some of our greatest lessons and blessings come from this.
What is this whole “tithe” thing I keep hearing about?
As we read God’s Word, the Bible, we learn that tithing is the foundation of giving.
A tithe of everything from the land, whether grain from the soil or fruit from the trees, belongs to the Lord ; it is holy to the Lord . Lev. 27:27
Tithing is returning to God 10 percent of what He has given us to steward (i.e., 10 percent of our income). It is the only subject God actually calls us to test Him on and clearly describes our return on investment in Malachi 3:10-12.
At Lifegate, we believe a tithed lifestyle is a blessed lifestyle.
If I start giving, is my personal information secure?
We take every precaution to safeguard your personal information, and we partner with processing companies that ensure this.
