Why We Give
Your generosity enables us to help people experience a life-changing relationship with Jesus. We are truly grateful for your donation and hope the convenience and simplicity of online giving will be helpful to you.
We practice the Biblical principle of tithing. Tithe means a tenth. When we tithe, we give 10 % of our income to God. God not only calls us to give as an act of obedience but to give generously. Once you are faithfully tithing, we would like you to consider giving above and beyond.
Each year we set specific goals for outreach and campus expansion so that more and more people can be reached with the Gospel. Kingdom Builders are people who give sacrificially, above and beyond their tithe to help us expand the Kingdom of God. We do this by partnering with local and global organizations.
We have several options for you to choose from that make giving to our church easy, safe and secure. You may opt to give online, through text messaging on your mobile device, or during one of our services.
Creative Ways Others are Giving
At Realife Church, we recognize the times are changing and the methods of managing assets has also changed. If you would like to give to Realife through a transfer of stocks/bonds, crypto-currency, or other QCD (qualified charitable giving), please call the church office or email [email protected].
You can also make a one-time gift or set up a recurring gift through our Realife app. The app has many other beneficial features and can be downloaded for free here.
Give during a Weekend Service
If you prefer, you can give during one of our in-person services by filling out the envelope located in the pocket of the seat backs and placing it in the offering bucket as it is passed down your row. You can use this envelope to give by cash or check. Please fill out the envelope completely so we can properly record your giving.
Your generosity enables us to help people experience a life-changing relationship with God. When you give to Realife, you are investing in the work that God has called us to do as a church. This involves not only reaching new areas and taking the power of the gospel to people around the globe, but also continuously investing in the lives of people who are already connected to Realife to help them take their next step in their walk with the Lord.
There are two options for directing your giving:
- Tithes: Donations made to this fund are used to fund the ongoing ministry and operations of the church.
- Kingdom Builders: Kingdom Builders contributions are given above and beyond the tithe. These funds are used to support our global missions, local ministry expansion, and future Christian leaders.
We believe that all followers of Christ should give generously as taught by Jesus to support furthering the mission of the gospel. Those that are still exploring Christianity and/or Realife Church are welcome, but not expected to contribute financially.
The first step in giving is to make your first gift – no matter how large or small with a cheerful and grateful heart! (2 Corinthians 9:7) The next step is to grow in generosity; challenge yourself to prioritize what you give to the Lord and listen to the Spirit’s prompts in becoming more generous. Like all aspects of our faith, God is always helping us grow along the way.
The Bible teaches us that we worship the Lord with our tithe (Malachi 3:8-10). In the New Testament, Jesus affirmed the principle of tithing (Matthew 23:23), 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.
