WHAT IS A CHRISTIAN MARKETPLACE?
Jesus Christ is the foundation for all life and business decisions. Building upon this foundation, we can see three main tenets of servitude found in FAITH, FAMILY, and FREEDOM. These three must occur in order of first having FAITH in Jesus as our Savior and Lord. Out-flowing from our Faith is the dedication to our FAMILY to raise and nurture them in the love and admonition of the Lord. We are then able to serve our country and support FREEDOM which is founded upon God’s Truths as given to us in the Holy Bible.
For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him. Colossians 1:16
Based on the above foundational principles, BuyGive.com desires to provide a marketplace for Christian sellers. A Christian marketplace differs from a secular marketplace in that its vendors covenant together to give 10-100% of its profits to charities that build God’s Kingdom. In addition, the Bible provides guidance in how vendors and consumers should conduct business with each other. Some marketplaces create an environment where the consumer is always right at the expense of the vendor. Biblical principles provide guidance that each of us should prefer others before ourselves and that we should treat others the way we want them to treat us.
Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor; not lagging behind in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer, contributing to the needs of the saints, practicing hospitality. Romans 12:9-13
In everything, therefore, treat people the same way you want them to treat you, for this is the Law and the Prophets. Matthew 7:12
BUY: Thank you consumer for buying your products here instead of what you would normally purchase on another marketplace. Most of the vendors on BuyGive.com also sell on the other major marketplaces. However, these other marketplaces charge large fees which impacts pricing you see as well as lowers the amount of net profits that vendors are able to give to charities.
GIVE: Vendors sign a Giving Covenant stating they will give 10-100% of their net profits to the Christian charities of their choice.
STRATEGY: The products on this marketplace site are routinely ordered by consumers. BuyGive.com recruits Christian vendors that are willing to join together and share in the site’s expenses. This allows BuyGive.com’s vendor fees to be much less to sell their products on the site. Vendors are then able to advertise lower pricing to attract buyers from other marketplaces.

LIFE AND BUSINESS PHILOSOPHY: Jesus Christ is the foundation for all life and business decisions. Building upon this foundation, we can see three main tenets of servitude found in FAITH, FAMILY, and FREEDOM. These three must occur in order of first having FAITH in Jesus as our Savior and Lord. Out-flowing from our Faith is the dedication to our FAMILY to raise and nurture them in the love and admonition of the Lord. We are then able to serve our country and support FREEDOM which is founded upon God’s Truths as given to us in the Holy Bible.
