We define the term “Christian Financial Advisor” to be someone who has received special training (such as that received in the Certified Kingdom Advisors (CKA®) Educational Program) in applying biblical principles to financial technical expertise. Because these financial principles come from both the Old and New Testaments of the Bible, a book whose timeless wisdom has been applied to business and financial matters for thousands of years, we refer to these principles as “Biblical Financial Principles,” and the advisors that have been trained in them as “Christian Financial Advisors.” Across the globe, people with different faiths, beliefs, and backgrounds use these principles in the management of their wealth.
