Exemplary Christian Associations in Europe: Association of Christian Financial Advisers. United Kingdom. (6th of Twelve).

What is the Association of Christian Financial Advisers?

“Money and Wealth under Biblical Principles. The Association of Christian Financial Advisers seeks to promote the Biblical Principles amongst our membership.”

Starting place: “The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it.” Thus, everything we “own” is, in effect, God’s. We merely hold money and possessions on trust for Him. Christian advisers are not automatically more qualified, more ethical or “better” than their non-Christian counterparts. But Christian advisers try to put Him first in everything that they do. This should add real value for the Christian client seeking to discern God’s will for their finances.
