Business Matters to God

At CIB we believe that business matters to God.

God made this world and cares about it. God cares about it so much that even though the creation had fallen far from his original plan, he sent Christ to reconcile it to himself. We are called to participate in God’s work of reconciliation, and business has a role to play.

In Why Business Matters to God, Jeff Van Duzer suggests that the two primary purposes of business are to provide goods and services that all may flourish and to provide meaningful employment.  When businesses do these things, they are fulfilling their purpose; they are making their unique contribution to the establishment of God’s kingdom, a kingdom of wholeness, of peace, and of shalom.

Because business matters to God, how we do business is of great significance.  We invite you to join us as we ask hard questions, dive deep into scripture, theology, and business practices, and explore what it looks like to work as God’s servants in the world of business.
