Frequently Asked Questions
God is our provider. He promises in Matthew 6:33 to provide for our needs. The Bible teaches that everything we have comes from God and belongs to Him. Psalm 24:1 says, “The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.” Therefore, we are mere stewards of what God has given to us. Tithing is giving back to God what is already His. We return 10% back to Him.
The word “tithe” means one tenth. So when you tithe, you give one tenth or 10% of your earnings. Tithing (10%) is the starting point of giving. Offerings are gifts given above the tithe. God has blessed some people financially who are able to give substantially more than 10% and still live comfortably.
We recognize that Jesus talked more about giving than He did on any other subject. Matthew 6:21 says, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Together, we work as a church to reach the lost. Malachi 3:10 says, “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.” The storehouse today is the local church you are attending. By partnering our monies together, God’s work is done more effectively.
Your gifts are used to fund God’s work through the ministry of the church. We do this through our weekend services for adults and kids, and through our support of local and worldwide missionaries. We can accomplish more together than separate.
Yes. Our budget each year is determined based on the goals and objectives of each ministry area within the church.

My favorite testimony of the goodness of God is when were were in Sierra Leone. Jenni came upstairs and asked me to come pray for one of the students that had passed out. When I got there I gathered her in my arms and quietly prayed over her healing and the love of the Father. It took about 10 minutes for her to come back around and she was so ashamed when she did. I reassured her that it was okay and how much she was loved. After sending her back to class the principal informed us that she frequently had epileptic seizures and it normally took a very long time for her to wake up. During the rest of our time she never had another one and I believe she is completely free from that bondage! God also ministered to the principal because he was so excited about the way she was ministered to giving him a revelation that Jesus moves in the quiet prayers as well as the loud ones. Glory to God!
We absolutely love Bethel Austin. Every time we go it feels like a big family reunion of the King's kids. The excitement in the lobby before the doors open is palpable. I've never experienced that before. People are actually excited to worship and hear the Word! We have only been going for a few weeks but are excited to call it our church home. I have read some negative reviews on social media and I do suggest that everyone come and check it out for yourselves. I was a little hesitant before attending just because of what I've read and heard but I am SO glad I did not let that be a deterrent! Our family has been so ministered to and blessed at this Church. Thank you Bethel ATX!
My wife had been suffering with a gluten intolerance known as celiac for 15 years and grabbed hold of a testimony in December about someone else getting healed from a food allergy. Without even realizing it, she received her healing and has been eating gluten ever since! Thank you, Jesus!
