WAYS TO GIVE
This ministry exists to evangelize the transforming message of God’s love to wherever people live – through live streaming, literature, and other media tools. When you give, you're helping share the freedom found in Jesus Christ. Remember these words, "Then Isaac sowed in that
land, and received in the same year an hundredfold: and the LORD blessed him." Genesis 26:12.
WHEN YOU GIVE
The gift that you give promotes growth and produces results. We equate giving as to a farmer who plants a seed in good soil; when it is planted free from doubt, fear, disobedience, and sin, you can expect results. We are extremely serious about our responsibility and commitment to keep this ministry pure and productive by daily walking in faith and total obedience to God’s Word.

We value every seed and consider it a holy, precious thing. Not only is your seed destined to produce harvest for you, it will also enable us to spread the Gospel through anointed social radio broadcasts, web shows, products, booklets, podcasts, social media, Internet outreaches, and evangelistic meetings held throughout the world.
We would never ask you to do what we wouldn’t do and to that end we faithfully sow seed to financially support many great ministries and outreaches all over the world. If you have been blessed through this ministry and you share our vision for World Evangelism, we invite you to pray about partnering with us.
Since the beginning of this organization in 1903, it has been paramount for us to be faithful stewards of the Gospel in every possible way and we have maintained financial integrity throughout our work for the Lord Jesus Christ and continue to be accountable for every donation that comes into this ministry.
In advance we want to thank you for helping us to bring the Gospel to people around the world. Together, with your support, we are a mighty force for God, winning souls!

5 Things You Should Know About The Ministry Of Giving
These are 5 verses about giving that just scratch the surface of understanding them, may they have revolutionize your financial life. Each one of them can impact you during good times and during financial struggles as well. We hope you will allow them to impact you as well.
1. Philippians 4:19
“ But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”
If you have lived much life at all, you are probably well aware that putting your trust in the economy, your employer, or your bank account is not a good idea. They are all fair-weather friends. They all can be helping you greatly one minute, and then the next everything has changed.
God, however, is always faithful. That is why we should always trust Him as our Supplier! It doesn’t matter if there is a financial crisis, if you get laid off, or your 401k loses 90 percent of its value, God will still supply your needs, just like He promised.
2. Malachi 3:10
“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."
It is a bold step of faith to start tithing. Cynics sometimes argue that tithing is not required, but to be quite honest, 10 percent should just be a mile-marker on our giving journey. After all, God owns it all and no matter where we are as far as what we are giving, we should always be striving to give more. Stepping out in Faith in this arena and testing Him will prove to be quite fruitful and yield a pretty amazing testimony.
3. 1 Timothy 6:10
“For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”
This verse is so often misquoted. Money is not evil. The love of it is. Having a million in your bank account doesn’t mean that you love it. Having $5 in your account doesn’t prove that you don’t.
For example, Warren Buffett has billions in his accounts, but he is giving almost all of it away to benefit the lives of others. On the other hand there are many stories of people getting killed over a matter of $20. It is a matter of the heart.
4. Acts 20:35
“I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive."
Giving sets us free, while hoarding entraps us (James 5:2). Giving changes the lives of others (John 3:16). Giving brings blessing back to us (Luke 6:38). Giving allows us to store up treasures in Heaven rather than here on the earth (Matthew 19:21). Giving really is fun — we need to be in on it.
5. Proverbs 22:7
“The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.”
The freedom of being debt free has always been so incredibly enticing; willing to give up a whole lot in exchange for it. Giving to God will cause you to be the head and not the tail, above and not beneath. You will grow, as you give.
