Institute for Faith, Work & Economics

The Institute for Faith, Work & Economics (IFWE) is a Christian organization advancing a free and flourishing society by revolutionizing the way people view their work. We believe the Bible’s timeless truths about the purpose of our work and how to make wise decisions with all that we’ve been given. When Christians understand and live out the biblical meaning of work, then lives, societies, and nations will be transformed for Christ.

Freedom comes when we understand that we have the freedom to be who God created us to be and to work doing what he created us to do. Freedom to use the gifts God has given us to enrich the lives of others.

Fulfillment comes when we work hard everyday at whatever God has put in front of us. Even if it’s not your dream job or seems insignificant, fulfillment comes when we see the bigger picture of how our work combines with the work of others to bring about flourishing.

Flourishing comes when we figure out what we are made for and how we fit into God’s big picture of restoration. Biblical flourishing is distinct from worldly flourishing in that it comes from God and is for God’s glory. It’s a foretaste of the wholeness and joy of life in God’s coming kingdom.
