May you help us deliver God's assistance, teaching, and leadership to everyone who need it
|Where your money goes...
*NOTE: A standard transaction fee of about 2.6% will be taken out of your donation by the credit card processor (Square or PayPal).
Your tithe is used for its purposes as defined by God for His people today. The tithe is called the sacred portion or set aside for God because it truly belongs to God (Deuteronomy/Devarim 26:13), and so it is treated with special care. It is only used to help the poor and needy, orphans, full-time servants of the Lord, and to supply holiday feasts (Deuteronomy/Devarim 14:29, 26:12-13, 14:22-27; 1 Chronicles/Divrei Hayamim I 9:17-27, 9:33; 2 Chronicles/Divrei Hayamim II 5:12-13; Ezra 2:41-58, 7:7; Nehemiah/Nechemya 7:1, 12:45-47, 13:10; 2 Corinthians 9:9; John 13:29).
The tithe is meant to supply people with support and show God's gracious giving to all. It is not meant to supply organizations or businesses, which is why this ministry sends every cent to people in as direct a way as possible.
Tithe funds will not be used for this ministry's other expenses, such as supplies, equipment, taxes, utilities, and other organizational expenses. Please make a general offering to provide for other expenses.
God gave much proof and scripture for this treatment of the tithe, and has even shown that this ministry's standards of conduct and teaching are what His people should maintain. See Properly Handling God's Money and Wealth for details.
Third-world ministries are also supplied by the tithe through distribution to God's full-time servants abroad. Ministries serving poor and tribal areas in the third-world greatly benefit from your giving because of the very low level of income in those communities.
The following chart shows how the tithe has been distributed through the lifetime of this ministry.
57% has gone to ministries and charities serving the world, 43% has gone to domestic people in need (United States), and less than 1% has supplied feasts.
General offerings go into the general operation fund and pay for utilities, supplies, property, and other ministry expenses that the tithe should not be used for.
Examples include advertising, material production, printing & distribution, Internet services & website hosting, and nonclergy worker costs.

Thank you very much, and God bless you in Mashiach Yeshua! (Christ Jesus)
Christ Hephzibah Church is a nonprofit organization.
Though your donations are tax deductible, we do not support claiming charity as tax deductions,
because we should not seek any return or reward from charitable giving.
The Lord said, "Take care not to practice your righteousness in the sight of people...
otherwise you have not reward with your Father who is in heaven...
But when you give to the poor, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing,
so that your charitable giving will be in secret, and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you." (Matthew 6:3-4).
Where is the heart of the person that wants compensation or recognition for giving charity?
