Our ministry operates on a budget that is donated by our supporters and donor community.
Examples of Kingdom Economics is using your car to take people to church, using your house to minister, and taking the resources God entrusted to you in order to manifest His Kingdom on Earth. Did you know that God owns 100% of all we have?
"The earth is the Lord's, and all it's fullness, The world and those who dwell therein" Psalm 24:1 (NKJV)
Our ability to work, our intellectual property, and our creativity all belongs to Him. Our sole mission on this earth is to use our natural and spiritual gifts along with all the resources necessary to assist with the establishment of God's Kingdom on Earth.
In Matthew 6:21 (NKJV), Jesus says, "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also"
A treasure is what you put value in - what you trust in. Notice in Genesis 14:19-20 (NKJV) where Abraham gives the high priest Melchizedek, type and shadow of Christ, a tithe (a "tenth" according to H4643 Strongs concordance #; from H6240). This was approximately 430 years before the law of Moses was instituted. In Genesis chapter 28:20-22 (NKJV), Jacob makes a vow to give God a tenth of all his increase. 10% is the minimum we commit back to Him and we are called to be good stewards over the rest.
Neither Abraham nor Jacob received a word from God instructing them to give, but since they valued God, LOVE became their motivation. Since they trusted God, FAITH was activated which unlocked the riches they walked in. See, we give simply out of LOVE - nothing else!
The Kingdom of God
The Kingdom of God is God's rule, or God's way of "doing what he does". The rulers of the darkness of this age (Ephesian chapter 6:12 NKJV) have blinded our minds to the truth. They have subjected us to state of darkness by controlling our feelings, thoughts, and perceptions about money. Just like we go to school to learn the skills of the world, the purpose of the church is to educate the people of God with the skills of the Kingdom.
This is what prevented the rich young ruler from inheriting eternal life in Mark chapter 10:17-22 (NKJV) - his love for his great possessions trapped him. We know this because he was not willing to give them up to inherit treasure in heaven. Jesus knew through the power of the Spirit that his heart was connected to his great possession. This is why He said, "sell everything you have and give to the poor".
God is the only one your heart should be connected to. A few chapters later Jesus told one of the scribes that the greatest commandment was, "You shall love the Lord your God with all you heart, with all your soul, with all you mind, and with all your strength. This is the first commandment." Mark 12:31 (NKJV). That word "love" (greek ag-ap-ah'-o) simply means unconditional love.
The real question when it comes to your money is this: IS YOUR HEART IN THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM? This requires faith, hence the reason many do not participate. This love that Jesus talks about is a love that moves one to obey. Love is a motivator - it's what drives you to do what you do.
Our Love for God
"For God so Loved the world that He gave his only begotten son, that who so ever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life" - JOHN 3:16 (NKJV).
He gave us His Best. He gave us His Last. He gave us His Only so that we could be the better. Why? Because, He loves us! Do you love God?
In Mark 12:41 (NKJV), the Bible says that Jesus sat opposite the treasury and saw how the people put money into the treasury. Many who were rich put in much. Then, one poor widow came and threw in two mites, which make a quadran (that's 3/8 of a cent if you're like me and have no clue what a quadran is). He called His disciples and said, "Assuredly, I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all those who have given to the treasury; for they all put in out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all that she had, her whole livelihood". Love was her motivation. She trusted Jesus and the Gospel of the Kingdom.
Does God Need Your Money?
God does not need your money, but since your heart is attached to it, He asks for your money to see if He has you! Once He has your heart synchronized with His Kingdom purpose for money - which is to seek and save that which is lost (Luke 19:10 NKJV) - you then become a distribution center.
"Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this, says the Lord of hosts, If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing That there will not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes so that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field," Says the Lord of hosts." - Malachi 3:10-11 (NKJV)
This window is a prophetic (which means to accurately describe what will happen in the future) channel that is open on your behalf and will manifest a great abundance. Glory to God! Nothing can stop that great abundance because Malachi is one of the only places that God Himself says, "I will step in and take care of the devourer for your sake". Now, do not mistake the "Windows of Heaven" blessing to mean money is going to come out of nowhere. The "Windows of Heaven" is a prophetic channel by which God supernaturally downloads divine ideas and opportunities into your spirit.
What Your Contributions Are Used For
These funds are used to continue the work of the ministry focused on the following initiatives:
Free Community Services: We provide everything from counseling to weddings at no cost to our community. Being a part of important events in the lives of people is part of the outreach we feel called to. Providing these services allow us to do just that.
Back to School Backpacks: We focus on providing first to fifth graders from families who cannot adequately afford school expenses with the backpacks and school supplies they need to start the year right.
Travel & Transportation: While carrying the teaching that God has put in our hearts and minds, our ministry incurs costs for delivering the message of the Kingdom. Your donations help offset those costs and provide the ministry with the finances to reach more people in more places.
Creation of Community Centers: We are working on developing a center where believers can fellowship, worship, and fine recreation.
Mentoring: We work with individuals from ages 8 to 28 teaching a generation to love like Christ despite ethnicity and how to stand for the commandments of God in a world that's lost its way.
Learning Centers & Day Care: Working with children 6 months to 7 years old, we introduce them to the creation of the world through various bible stories. We teach them their true identity, a kingdom perspective, and skills that will assist them to be successful in school and in other social environments
Community Centers: This is the biggest and most immediate cause we are actively working on. Have you ever wanted to hang out somewhere that allowed you to fellowship and have a holy good time after hours? Play games, worship, build relationships, pray, and praise all in one place that's open when you need it.
College Students Book Scholarships: College is difficult enough. As you and your children make the transition, we are here to assist with you by providing funding for the books they need to excel.
It is only through generous gifts from individuals, families, businesses, and other nonprofits that we can continue to do the work our ministry has been created to do. Donate now by choosing a donation option and clicking INVEST NOW.
