Welcome, we’re so glad you stopped by! The Lifewater family is in a season of transition. After 9 years of worshipping in a local school, we have purchased our 1st permanent home and are in the process of renovating it – we are beyond excited! Due to the renovation, we are still gathering online as we embark on this new adventure. Our desire is to be in our new space as soon as we can, but unfortunately, we do not have a date we feel comfortable announcing. We look forward to worshipping with all of you in person soon, but until then, we invite you to look around. Check out who we are and what we believe. We would love for you to go to our resource page and join us for Sunday worship each morning. We can’t wait to meet you and to partner with you in helping build the Kingdom of God here in the Bossier area. Another way to stay connected is through our Facebook page. We will update it regularly, so please check back often for the latest information.

Gospel-Centered Giving

Gospel-Centered Giving

 The Word of God has much to say about generosity and giving.  Below you will find some of the verses that give us wise counsel when it comes to Gospel-centered giving.

- We give to our church. We release our giving into the hands of local church leadership (Num. 18:27-29; Lev. 23:9-14; Acts 4:32-37, 6:1).

- We give first. We are to seek first God’s Kingdom—a first fruits principle—not worrying about what we will eat or drink, but trusting that he will take care of our needs (Matt. 6:33).

- We give generously and freely (2 Cor. 8, Gal 5:1).

- Giving is good for us. Giving benefits the giver, not just the beneficiary (2 Cor. 8).

- Giving is a joy. We give as a joyful response to what God has given us in Jesus Christ (2 Cor. 8).

- It is all God’s anyway. Everything we have comes from God and belongs to God, therefore we are not really sacrificing anything when we give (Jas. 1:17; 1 Cor. 6:19-20; Rom. 12:1-2).

- We support our church leaders. We are to support those who serve us in the equipping and training of the gospel (1 Cor. 9:1-14; Gal. 6:6-7; 1 Tim. 5:17-25).

- Our giving grows over time. We should grow in our giving as we more fully embrace the gospel (Matt. 25:31-46; Acts 2:44-45, 3:34-35).
