The Christian Business Alliance (CBA) is a division of United Churches In Christ, Inc. We encourage and teach businesses to launch BOLD INITIATIVES in the MARKETPLACE for the Kingdom of God.

ALL OF THE DISCIPLES HAD SPECIAL SKILLS. THEY WERE NOT LAZY.
Once Peter allowed Jesus to use his BOAT for MINISTRY, he experienced an OVERFLOW in his BUSINESS. He was able to operate in FULL TIME Ministry and DELEGATE his BUSINESS to other fishermen. In the natural world, Peter was a FISHERMAN but JESUS made him a FISHER of MEN for the KINGDOM of GOD.
We believe that OPPORTUNITY is the greatest avenue to creating WEALTH. You must POSITION yourself in order to seize the opportunity for God's FAVOR. Through WISDOM, KNOWLEDGE and UNDERSTANDING, the POWER and WEALTH of God will be greatly manifested in your life.
