The word “tithe” literally means “payment of the tenth part.”
At Lakemount, we believe that we have the privilege of offering 10% of our income to the work of the Lord. When we all give 10%, we all make equal sacrifice, though not an equal amount. Depending on the amount of income, 10% may be a little or a lot of money, relatively speaking. The point is not the amount, but rather, it is the partnership of joining together in community.
“Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. ‘Test me in this,’ says the Lord Almighty, ‘and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it’” (Malachi 3:10). When everyone who considers Lakemount their spiritual storehouse (or home church) tithes, God promises that there will be more than enough provision for the vision of the House.
As we all do our part, the finances will be available in abundance to fulfill all of the work that God has called us to accomplish together.
