For your sakes, give to Godís Church 

For those who give, you are creating for yourselves (Matthew 19:21, Mark 10:21, and Luke 18:22) "treasure in heaven". Although salvation is only through Christís blood sacrifice, Jesus gives us a new commandment requiring Christians to (Matthew 19:19) "love your neighbor as yourself." Is attending church sufficient to qualify as love of neighbor? Christ tells us over and over again, (Matthew 9:13, 12:7, and Hosea 6:6) "I desire mercy and not sacrifice." Christ tells us in his own words that belief in Him is proved by obedience. (John 14:15) "If you love Me, keep My commandments." (John 14:24) "He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Fatherís who sent Me." (Matthew 7:21-23) "Not everyone who says to Me, ĎLord, Lord,í (therefore among those who declares Jesus Lord and Savior) shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven." It therefore follows; those who ascribe belief but do not follow Christ in practical terms do not "love" their "neighbor", and have no assurance of eternal life. God requires more of love than faith and emotions. Jesus plainly warns, (Matthew 7:14) "Narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it." Do you want to be part of that "few" or is hope alone for of eternal life sufficient? 

Americans by worldly standards are rich beyond compare. Jesus has said of us today, (Matthew 7:21-23) "I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God." How then may you as an affluent believer find that "narrow .. way" that Christ tells us leads to a guarantee of eternal life? Christ tells the believer, (Matthew 25:33-40) "Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.í Then the righteous (those who have accepted Christ as savior) will answer Him, saying, ĎLord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?í "And the King (Jesus) will answer and say to them, ĎAssuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.í " Isnít this precisely the mission of Godís Church today? Isnít this literally the "narrow ... way" that Jesus assured believers leads to a guarantee of eternal life. Then for your own sake as a believer, help Godís Church or those similar to do our Fatherís work.

How can you help Godís Church? (Luke 6:38) "Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you." On June 12, 2001, the state of California certified Godís Church as non-profit Religious Corporation. Any gifts to it are tax deductible, and a tax receipt will be issued to contributors at year-end. No one in this Church receives a salary. Since both the feeding of the people and the sermons are given out doors, no money is spent on the rental or the purchase of buildings. Instead, 100% of everything that is given to Godís Church goes directly to those of our society that have the greatest need.

Beyond money, Godís Church needs on an ongoing basis food, clothing, and personal care goods to mission to the poor. In terms of food, the Church requires on an ongoing basis hotdogs, hotdog buns, bulk purchases of McDonaldís or Burger King cheese burgers, condiments, cases of canned soft drinks and bottled water, salad and salad dressing, rice, eggs, chicken, watermelon, oranges, cantaloupe, disposable plates and plastic forks, napkins, paper towels, toilet paper, toothpaste and toothbrushes, combs, disposable shavers, hand and hair soap, towels and blankets, clothing used or new, shoes; the very things you take for granted in daily life but which the homeless look upon as gold. And if you will take the time, come be with us and help Godís Church in this ministry of love. For the Bible tells us (Matthew 9:37) "The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few."
