Financial Solutions from a Biblical Perspective
Salt & Light is a tool for Anabaptists to walk alongside their neighbors, building relationships, while at the same time helping to meet the physical needs of families. The Salt & Light course has two major themes.
1. The Bible brings hope for our financial problems
2. Joyful Kingdom living comes from obeying Jesus
Our goal is to bring sustainable change by helping people discover that they have the ability to help themselves by using their God-given skills and resources. The 12-week (one evening a week) course uses participatory learning methods and teaches concepts like discovering the power of frequent transactions, savings for known expenses, overcoming debt, buying versus renting a home, the real cost of financing a car, banking and credit cards, giving to needs in the community, and more.
The teaching course material includes both practical teachings to help people better provide for their families and Biblical truths to point them toward the answer that all people need—Jesus Christ.
