GIFT GIVING AND GOD'S PLAN OF BIBLE TITHING! The work of any ministry that is truly of God is funded by God's Plan of Bible Tithing, free will offerings and spirit filled gift giving! Without God's plan of Bible Tithing and gift giving no Christian work could be accomplished, no church buildings could be built, no bible schools, humanitarian missions, crusades, outreach or any other honorable Christian work could be accomplished and it is for these reasons and the spreading of the Gospel that God gave HIS plan of Bible Tithing to all Christians for the work of HIS Kingdom and the Glory of Christ Jesus! Any church or ministry that does not teach and abide by the word of God as it pertains to GOD's plan of Bible Tithing and gift giving that is clearly stated in HIS word so that the work of the cross can be accomplished and lack for nothing is not of the Kingdom of God or of the teachings of the Bible, nor is it of any value to Christ for the furtherance of the HIS Gospel and His Great Commission to go into all the world and spread HIS Gospel for the glory of God and the building up of the family of God and for HIS mighty Kingdom! All who do not believe in God's plan of Bible tithing and fail to honor and to teach it are unworthy of Ordination by this beloved church and are unteachable, worldly, truly selfish, sinful and robbers of God 's storehouse just as the Bible states! You cannot call yourself a Christian or enter into the ministry of Jesus Christ if you are not willing to abide by the commandments of God and live by  the word of TRUTH in HIS Holy Bible!
