- Ethical – agreeing to espouse and practice the Kingdom Advisors Code of Ethics by maintaining active local church involvement, and by providing pastoral and client letters of reference.

Why work with a Certified Kingdom Advisor?
Every individual seeking a financial advisor in any discipline looks for someone who is competent, performs their work with excellence, evidences humility and integrity, and seeks to advance the client’s interests first and foremost. Many advisors, whether a Certified Kingdom Advisor or not, can meet these requirements.
What is the difference in a Certified Kingdom Advisor? God’s Word says, “The mind of man plans his way but the Lord directs his steps” (Proverbs 16:3). Additionally, God’s Word says, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom” (Psalm 111:10).
First, financial advice you receive should be consistent with and informed by God’s Word. Second, your advisor should have a biblical worldview so that they help you become a steward of God’s resources that He has given you to manage. Third, when your advisor is a believer in Jesus Christ, they are undergoing constant transformation by the Holy Spirit and becoming more Christ-like in character. As such, you should desire to be able to hold your advisor to a higher standard of character and integrity.
So, why choose a Certified Kingdom Advisor? Because a Certified Kingdom Advisor has been trained and has committed to be a person of character who, from a biblical worldview, serves you with biblical financial advice on how to manage the goals God has given you in being a steward of the finances that He has entrusted to you.
