Financial Accountability

It is the calling and desire of Christian Aid Ministries to be faithful stewards in the trust that has been placed upon us in using the funds and materials that are donated to help those that are needy.

We at Christian Aid Ministries make ourselves accountable first of all to God.

'Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.' 1 Corinthians 4:2 (KJV)

As stewards of the resources that have been entrusted to us, it is our great desire that we be found faithful.

We are also accountable to our fellow man (donors).

'Avoiding this, that no man should blame us in this abundance which is administered by us: providing for honest things, not only in the sight of the Lord, but also in the sight of men.' II Corinthians 8:20-21 (KJV)

We are also accountable to the government.

'Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.' Romans13:1 (KJV)
