GuideStone believes that all Christians are called to be a light to the world (Matt. 5:16). Our desire to be a witness for Christ shapes everything that we do.
Over fifty years ago, we developed our first faith-based investing policy so that we could reflect biblical principles by excluding those investments that we deemed incompatible with our moral and ethical posture as a Christian organization. Since that time, we have instituted a shareholder advocacy program that engages in dialogues with companies to encourage beneficial change. But exclusionary screening and advocacy efforts can only go so far in promoting positive, long-lasting change in our world.
That’s why GuideStone is excited to introduce IMPACT INVESTING as the new frontier to faith-based investing by offering the GuideStone Impact Equity Fund and the GuideStone Impact Bond Fund, two overtly Christian, total return-focused mutual funds created specifically to further God’s Kingdom here on earth. With these Funds, we give our investors opportunities to be more proactive with their investment dollars as we partner together to serve the underserved and glorify God.
