The Need

At Kingdom Capital Fund, we see a God of abundance who desires to expand His Kingdom for a world in great need. Most importantly:

  • The Gospel needs to be shared across the globe

  • By Spiritual leaders who are mature

  • And a community of believers who are reaching out

  • To the “least of these,” to serve their physical and spiritual needs

Our Mission—Meeting the Need

We believe ministries should spend less time fundraising and more time expanding the Kingdom of God locally and around the world.

That’s where Kingdom Capital Fund comes in. Our mission is to financially support ministries that are expanding the Kingdom of God by multiplying business ventures God has provided. In short, we bring together cash and non-cash gifts, including labor and expertise, from a variety of donors. Then, we invest those resources in entrepreneurial projects, multiplying profits and distributing them to support Christian ministries.

We focus on finances so the ministries we support can focus on spreading the Gospel, growing disciples, and serving the least of these.

 
 

Our Stewardship

At Kingdom Capital Fund, we seek to multiply our assets and our distributions so we can be a reliable partner for the ministries we support. Our board, with input from our donors, makes all investing and giving decisions based on business acumen and Biblical principles.

Statement of Faith

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

  • We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

  • We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in his virgin birth, and in his sinless life, in his miracles, in his vicarious and atoning death through his shed blood, in his bodily resurrection, in his ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in his personal return in power and glory.

  • We believe the Bible to be in the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. We submit to the Bible as the final authority in all matters of life and faith.

  • We believe all have sinned and are in need of a Savior. We believe atonement must be made in order for any person to be reconciled to God. Jesus Christ made a complete atonement for those who put their trust in His substitutionary death on the cross. He imputes His righteousness to all believers securing full redemption for all who repent of their sin and trust in Him alone for salvation.

  • We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.

  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost to the resurrection of damnation.

  • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

  • We believe God creates each person as exclusively male or female, which reflect the image and nature of God.

  • We believe God designed marriage as a unique conjugal relationship joining one man and one woman in a single, exclusive, life-long union. God intends sexual intimacy to only occur between a man a woman joined in marriage. We believe all forms of sexual immorality are dishonoring ot God.

  • We believe in the biblical sanctity of human life. That God believes in the protection of all human life from conception to natural death. As Christians we must strive to uphold all human life no matter age, skin color, religion, or economic condition.

  • We believe that due to the shortness of time on this earth and length of eternity, we should be diligent in seeing that the good news of Jesus Christ should be freely shared in our community, region, and wherever God gives us opportunity. We believe God has called us as Christians to “share the good news” of the Bible and to promote preaching the gospel, training and encouraging spiritual leaders, and encouraging all believers to become involved with a Christian bible believing church or group.

  • We believe that all Christians should faithfully seek to obey Jesus Christ in caring for the least of these in our midst and around the world. This includes giving mercy to the orphan, widow, prisoner, hungry, and others in need. These works are not done as a means of salvation but out of obedience to Jesus for the glory of God the Father.
