Invest with your values.

Match your principles to your portfolio.

GuideStone recognizes the realities and challenges Christians face in our society today — particularly when it comes to family. Throughout Scripture, God emphasizes the importance of the family structure; yet each day it seems we face new obstacles attempting to undermine His design.

Because we believe in holding fast to our ideals, several decades ago GuideStone implemented an investment policy to help support our biblical values through the protection of life, family, stewardship, health and safety. Therefore, GuideStone does not invest in any company that is publicly recognized as being in the alcohol, tobacco, gambling, pornography or abortion industries.

Community Service
Our community service program allows GuideStone employees to volunteer with one another throughout the Dallas community. Whether it is serving a hot meal to the homeless in South Dallas or sorting Bibles for ministry use, our employees are given the opportunity to truly be the hands and feet of Christ to our neighbors in need.

The heartbeat of GuideStone is our ministry to SBC ministers, workers and widows who faithfully served our Lord and now find themselves struggling to make ends meet. Through generous donations and an endowment that covers operational expenses, we are able to provide monthly financial assistance to almost 1,700 retired soldiers of the cross. This additional income allows them to meet their basic financial needs, including bills, food, medication and more.
