Why give? The Bible states in Nehemiah 10:35 “We also assume responsibility for bringing to the house of the Lord each year the firstfruits of our crops and of every tree.” As an act of thanksgiving and gratitude for God’s blessings unto you, you should give.
Why give? The gifts, offerings, and tithes that you give will be used to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ, providing spiritual and physical assistance to those in need. The Church Without Walls supports local community evangelism, food pantries, clothing donations, homeless shelters, Habitat for Humanity, Angel Tree, and educational assistance.

Why give? So, you can be a blessing to someone else.
May God bless your donation.
