Buy Sell Christian

A movement of Christians doing business with other Christians

Creating an economy for Christians.

What is the Buy Sell Christian movement? 

Wouldn't it be great if there was an easy and universal way for Christians to know they were patronizing Christian businesses?

Buy Sell Christian exists to connect Christian customers to Christian businesses. 

With Buy Sell Christian, Christians who want to support Christian businesses no longer have to research every company and purchase they make.

When Christians see this symbol, they know that the owners of this company make a public profession of faith in Jesus Christ. Specifically, the affirm the truth of Philippians 2:11, which states "...Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."

Just look for this symbol!

When you see this symbol, you know that the owners of the company have made a public profession of their faith in Jesus Christ. 

It could be black and white.

You can find the symbol anywhere. On websites, store fronts, on products, even in signature lines, or on social media sites. 

What inspired the movement?

Many Christians today are deeply troubled by the direction of culture and society. Many businesses today sell products and do business in a way that is anti-Christian, and it seems it's getting worse.

As Christians, we know that anti-Christian companies will never change if we keep giving them our money. 

We are a movement of Christians who seek societal change by supporting Christian businesses with our business.

In the past, Christians have boycotted companies that are especially anti-Christian, but this no longer enough.

When I see the Buy Sell Christian symbol, what does that mean?

The buy sell Christian certification communicates one very simple, very powerful message. That message is this:
The owners of this business publicly declare: Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:11

Where can I find the symbol of Buy Sell Christian?

Look for the symbol of Buy Sell Christian on the websites, store fronts, on product labels, and in signature lines of emails of Christian-owned companies. 

If you don't see the symbol, ask for it!

Why should Christians support Christian businesses?

We believe that Christians are called to support one another and exist in communities with one another. Preferring to do business with each other is simply another form of community for Christians to participate in, as the Apostle Paul said in 2 Corinthians 6:14-18:

Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said:

“I will dwell in them and walk among them.
I will be their God, and they shall be My people.”

Therefore

“Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord.
Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you.”
“I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters,
Says the Lord Almighty.”

How can I become a part of the buy sell Christian movement?

Look for the symbol! If you don't see it, ask for it!

How does the buy sell Christian movement work?

The buy sell Christian movement works in two parts.

The first part comes from the desire of Christians to see other Christians succeed in business. The buy sell Christian movement makes identifying Christian businesses easy for Christian customers.

The second part comes from a desire to not support businesses that go against Christian morals and Christian principles. Sadly, we see anti-Christian behavior from many companies, many products, advertising, and business methods. Many Christians today feel that they cannot in good conscience patronize anti-Christian businesses that go against their beliefs.

Who is Buy Sell Christian?

Buy Sell Christian is a not-for-profit organization that works to help connect Christian customers to Christian sellers. 

Who can become part of the Buy Sell Christian movement?

Any Christian can become part of the movement. 

Christian business owners can become part of the movement by applying to become an affiliate of the movement. 

Christian customers can become part of this movement by looking for the Buy Sell Christian symbol, buying from companies that show the Buy Sell Christian symbol, and asking companies to get the Buy Sell Christian symbol. 

What do you mean by "creating an economy for Christians"?

Christians form the largest part of society in many countries, and most western countries. Yet our societies, cultures, institutions and governments seem to be turning away from God. They are becoming anti-Christian.

Many Christians have come to believe they can no longer support institutions that are anti-Christian, and this includes anti-Christian businesses. They prefer to do business with other Christians instead. 

These Christians understand that such companies will never stop their anti-Christian behavior as long as Christians keep giving them money. 

Does "creating an economy for Christians" mean exiting the other economy?

Absolutely not! 

We want you stay a part of the regular economy. When we say we are creating an economy for Christians, these economies exist side-by-side, and you can participate in both. 

The Christian economy exists to help Christian buyers find Christian sellers in the economy.

What is the vision of Buy Sell Christian?

The vision of buy sell Christian is to create a Christian business community that has two parts.

The first part is giving Christian businesses and business owners a simple and recognizable way to make a public profession of their faith in Jesus Christ to the world.

The second part is to give Christian customers a simple and recognizable way to easily identify Christian businesses with whom they can feel good about doing businesses.

Hold on. Are you saying it is sinful for Christians to do business with non-Christians?

No. We believe Christians are free to do business with whomever they want. This movement is for Christians who want to support other Christians in business, or who do not wish to support anti-Christian businesses, or both.

Do you certify the morality of the companies using the symbol? 

Absolutely not. We certify only that the owners of the company have made a public profession of their belief in Jesus Christ.

How can I know if a business is "Christian Certified"?

That's very easy. Look for the Buy Sell Christian symbol! If you don't see it, ask for it! 

Aren't we supposed to keep religion and business separate?

No. That teaching is not found in the church or in the Bible. Furthermore, religious discrimination in the workplace is illegal in the USA. Therefore, there is no reason for Christians to not be Christians when working and conducting business.

What is the inspiration for the Buy Sell Christian movement?

The Bible is our inspiration for supporting Christian businesses and customers. We believe that Christianity is a faith than cannot be lived only in certain times and places, but rather it is wholly appropriate to live our faith in all times and all places, as Jesus Christ said in the sermon on the mount, Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16

What are the guidelines of the Buy Sell Christian movement?

The standard for joining Buy Sell Christian is simple. All of the owners of a business, or in the case of a publicly traded company, all of the directors of the business, must sign a public profession of faith declaring Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:11

What are the benefits of joining the Buy Sell Christian movement?

The best benefit of joining Buy Sell Christian is having the right to display the symbol of Buy Sell Christian.

Where should I look for the symbol?

Look for the symbol anywhere goods are sold. On product labels, website, store fronts, or in the signature lines of business emails. 

What kind of business are not permitted to join the Buy Sell Christian movement?

We do not allow businesses to join that engage in business activities condemned in the Bible and by the church.

We do not allow any company to join that offers: Pornography, abortion, sex work, usury, & recreational drug dispensaries.
