How can your business impact the Kingdom of God in Australia?
A Kingdom business is simply any business owned or operated by a person for whom the Lordship of Jesus Christ is paramount in their lives and whose faith is integrated into their business life. The business becomes an expression of that person’s ministry, since owning a Kingdom business is a ministry in itself.
