Traditional micro and macroeconomic theory teaches us that we operate in an economy of scarcity based on limited resources. We worship a God that took five loaves and two fish and fed five thousand people. We believe that God’s economy is one of abundance. We don’t believe that one person’s economic gain or financial return comes at the expense of another. An abundance mentality allows us to be open handed as we look to share investors and deal flow. Furthermore, while many that subscribe to an economy of scarcity might believe that the addition of a bottom line to financial return will come at the expense of the other, we believe that great financial returns are possible not at the expense of Biblical values, but because of them.
