We need your help
If we are going to bring forth the real bounty, we're going to have to cooperate and help each other. The best way to do that is through this movement of the Real Liberal Christian Church. There are many things you can do to start helping right away.
Please read this excerpt on firstfruits from There Is No Such Thing as a Conservative-Republican Christian: Jesus is a small-c communist.
Â» Please support us financially. The Church is dependent on donations to survive. Affiliate and ad income helps but is far from enough to meet even the most basic needs let alone allow for growth of the movement.
The Real Liberal Christian Church is a United States Internal Revenue Code Â§501(c)(3) Nonprofit, Public Charity, Religious Organization (ministry), as defined by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service, the principal purpose of which ministry is the advancement of religion, namely Christianity. All donations are fully tax deductible on US federal tax returns.
- Generally there is a 50% deduction limit against annual adjusted gross income in the U.S. for donations to religious organizations.
- Excess donations may be carried forward over 5 years.
- Property donations are deductible at the fair market value. If the property has gone up in value since the time it was purchased, the donor may take a deduction on income that has never been reported or upon which taxes have never been paid.
(Concerning other countries, consult their tax codes.)
It will be most helpful if you will tithe (donate ten percent of your annual gross-income to support this cause), or better if you can manage. The Old Testament standard was to tithe. The New Testament stresses that one ought to give as much as one is moved to give. Zacchaeus gave fifty percent. Joses Barnabas gave one hundred percent. It is up to you. We cannot tell you what to do in this regard. Do what the Holy Spirit tells you. Give only what you're able. Every contribution will help.

Â» Transfer your stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and the like to the Church, which may sell them tax-free. Otherwise, if you sell them as an American income-tax payer, you may have to pay at least capital-gains tax on any gain.
Â» Name the Church as a beneficiary in your Will.
Â» Purchase your books and things through the Church's site.
(NOTE: There is a commission cap on computers. Also, items from auctions and what Amazon calls "Zstores" garner no affiliate commission for the Church. Also, the commission structure is subject to change by Amazon.)
The price to you for your purchase remains unaffected. The affiliate commission works as a small donation to the Church.
