From the IFWE website:
“In a world asking tough questions about justice, equality, and the economy, the Institute for Faith, Work & Economics? (IFWE) was founded to educate and inspire Christians to think Biblically about these issues and to steward their whole lives in a way that benefits society and glorifies God.
?Each person is created in God?s image and, like Him, has a desire to be creative and fulfilled using their God-given talents through work.
?As we explore a comprehensive Biblical view of work, we understand that our work ? whether paid or volunteer ? matters to God and is an integral part of His purpose in this world. For many of us, this is a paradigm shift in how we view work.
?Indeed, God?s call to Christians is to pursue excellence throughout the week ? not just on Sundays ? stewarding all that we?ve been given for the good of others and God?s glory.
?Therefore, if this is true about work, we as citizens must cherish and sustain an economic environment that not only provides us the freedom to flourish in our work but also reflects the inherent dignity of each human being.
At the Institute for Faith, Work & Economics, we want to awaken Christians to the strategic role their work plays in God?s loving and redemptive narrative in the world. By rediscovering the Biblical doctrine of work and by viewing economics through this lens, Christians, through their work, will have a positive, sustainable impact in their communities, the nation, and throughout the world.
