Unveiling The Power of Faith in Business
In a world where the term free enterprise is often debated, the U.S. Christian Chamber of Commerce stands as a beacon, championing not just any economy, but a Freedom Economy grounded in Biblical principles. Our national conference in 2022, aptly themed “God’s Economy,” sparked crucial conversations. But the question arises: If America champions free enterprise, why the need for alternative economies? Is freedom in business limited to those who conform to a mainstream worldview, excluding those guided by Biblical truths?
A forum for bold faith
Our President’s Advisory Council recently delved into these questions, inspired by Lucas Miles’ book Woke Jesus. A standout moment was when advisory member Denise B. Lawrence, president at Denise B. Lawrence & Associates, LLC inquired about expressing bold faith.
Lucas’s reply was striking: “Boldness comes from zeal, knowledge and the Holy Spirit.” This profound statement underlines our commitment: to be bold, effective witnesses in the marketplace.
Embracing diversity in collaboration
On a recent Twitter Space event, David Ragsdale with Defeat the Mandates posed a powerful question: Can social conservatives collaborate with those of different beliefs?
The answer is a resounding yes, as long as the mission aligns.
Our Christian Chamber, rooted in the belief in Jesus Christ and a Biblical worldview, is about unity in Christ, not uniformity in denomination or politics. Like Jesus, who engaged with diverse individuals during his time on Earth, we too are called to be in the world, boldly sharing our faith, not isolating ourselves and lamenting about the state of the world.
Our mission is not just to observe, but to actively participate in shaping a world that reflects the love, integrity and compassion at the heart of our faith. This cannot be accomplished in isolation.
Navigating uncharted waters
The Christian Chamber Coalition is a testament to our commitment to help guide our members through these challenging times. The presidents of our member chambers are working to develop strategies to navigate these new economic landscapes while maintaining our faith, and we’ll be sharing them with you soon.
