Marketplace Ministry is where Life and Work as The Church coincide...
All our activities, including our business dealings, our interactions with others, our ministries, and even our times of rest and relaxation should mirror the nature and character of God. However, people often become so totally engrossed in the things of this world that they forget to think about God. Even well-meaning Christians get caught up in the pleasures and works of this world and find themselves totally immersed in the things of humanity. Jobs, sports, business, politics, science, cars, houses, pets – you name it – even good works and family, tend to become idols that interfere with our Life and Relationship with Jesus Christ. We intend to help change that reality through the efforts of the Konkrete Company.
The Konkrete Company will be like the New Jerusalem portrayed in the Book of Revelation. From day one, we will focus on operating and functioning the way The Church is supposed to, all day, everyday. We will accomplish that by being transparent and peaceful, like the divine City that we actually are in Christ, translucent as glass and calm as a Crystal Sea. We will make every effort to walk together, in the Spirit, with one another and live out the heavenly nature of God. As such, our daily tasks and fellowship will be walked out upon streets of pure gold. We will never resort to natural, earthly tactics; abusive practices; false advertising; and other corrupt means to succeed. All our activities, including all our business dealings and all our interactions with others, will mirror and reflect Christ. They must, for we have to well and truly represent our Lord and Savior to the rest of the world.
We are the Body of Christ (literally “Christ the Body” here on this Earth). We have become partakers of God’s divine nature, and so His nature must be reflected in all that we do and say. Together, as a united Family, we can live, and work, and minister God’s Love to all those who need Hope in this broken and corrupt world. Being part of a Godly Family is what becoming a Konkrete™ Colleague is all about. Godly Life is what the Konkrete™ Community lives out, together with one another. Conducting Godly Business as Christian stewards is why we are building the Konkrete Economy and Financial Ecosystem. Expanding our philanthropic reach as the Body of Christ is why we are also collaboratively incubating Godly Ministry initiatives.
We are all called to be like Christ. So, be Konkrete™. Be Rock Solid™. All other ground is sinking sand…
