The people of God fund the work of God for the glory of God.
Giving to the church is not just about paying the bills, it’s about investing in Kingdom work. The amazing thing is that God allows His people to be the means by which He funds His own work, and He provides His people with all they need to live out that exciting opportunity.

Deuteronomy 8:18a tells us to “Remember the LORD your God, for it is He who gives you the ability to produce wealth…” (NIV).
Scripture speaks of God’s people giving "tithes" and "offerings."
The tithe is 10% of our income, and Malachi 3:10 says that the tithe should come to God’s “house,” that is the church. The church, then is responsible to use that money for Kingdom work.
Offerings are those gifts that we give above the tithe and they can be designated for any number of various uses. For example, you might choose to direct your offerings to one of our benevolence ministries to help people in our community who are facing difficult times.
When you give your tithes and offerings, you are sacrificing as an act of worship to God. That’s why we receive those gifts each Sunday during the worship service. Giving is as much a part of worship as singing or preaching. However, you can serve and worship God by giving at other times and in other ways as well. For example, you might remember the church when doing your estate planning or consider leaving a legacy gift to the church. In that way, your ministry will outlive you.
When you give through FBC West, you allow us to partner with you in doing the work God has called us to do, and we are grateful for that opportunity. Thank you for financially supporting the ministries of FBC West!
