WHY WE GIVE
Want to join us in our mission of reaching people with the life-giving message of Jesus? Your generosity enables us to help more and more people experience a life-changing relationship with Him. We are truly grateful for your donation and hope the convenience and simplicity of online giving will be helpful to you.
Financial giving can be divided into two categories: tithes and offerings. The Bible teaches us that we worship the Lord with our tithe, which is ten percent of our income contributed to the church on a regular basis. When we feel called to give over and above our tithe, we do so as an offering.
WAYS TO GIVE
We have several options for you to choose from that make giving to our church easy, safe, and secure. You can opt to give online (through Paypal), by mail, or during our services.

MORE ABOUT TITHING
A tithe of everything you produce belongs to the Lord; it is holy to the Lord.” Leviticus 27:30
At Big Lake Heights we practice tithing for the support of Christ’s Body, the church, as God commands. We recognize that giving 10% of our income is the Biblical standard of giving.
The giving of tithes and offerings is worship to Jesus Christ and is an expression of the relationship between the individual giver and the Lord. Funds are not “income only,” they are worship, and must not be considered as a business transaction, but as an expression of gratitude toward God. Also, giving is foundational to the nature of God, therefore a believer cannot be like Jesus without being a sacrificial giver.
Tithing is instituted in the Old Testament, practiced in the New Testament, and endorsed by Jesus, Himself. Therefore we hold tithing as an important practice of every Christian. While giving is not an action undertaken to try and “buy a blessing” from God, the Bible makes clear that the faithful giver can expect a harvest in return.
