STANDING FOR BIBLICAL PRINCIPLES AND CHRISTIAN VALUES.
GuideStone recognizes the realities and challenges Christians face in our society today, and each day it seems we face new obstacles attempting to undermine God’s design. We proudly share both faith-based values and a Kingdom perspective with the churches, ministries, institutions and individuals we serve — and incorporate our beliefs into the decisions we make.
GuideStone Takes a Stand for:
Not only are our Christian values reflected in the way we conduct business, but they also influence the way we treat others.
The heartbeat of GuideStone is our ministry to retired SBC ministers, workers and widows who faithfully served our Lord and now find themselves struggling to make ends meet. Through generous donations and an endowment that covers operational expenses, we are able to provide monthly financial assistance to almost 1,700 retired soldiers of the cross. This additional income allows them to meet their basic financial needs, including bills, food, medication and more.
Our community service program allows GuideStone employees to volunteer with one another throughout the Dallas community. Whether it is serving a hot meal to the homeless in South Dallas or sorting Bibles for ministry use, our employees are given the opportunity to truly be the hands and feet of Christ to our neighbors in need.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE.
“GuideStone backed up everything they said about personal service, quality product and a heart for ministry. They have been highly responsive to our needs and continue to be a trusted ministry partner for us as we strive to provide quality services. . . . With no reservations, we highly recommend GuideStone as a retirement plan provider.”
“It was getting to the point where we didn’t know what to do or if we would be able to provide our employees with coverage. But after contacting GuideStone, we were able to save $2,000 per person per year — even for a richer medical plan.”
GuideStone Property & Casualty
“I would encourage other churches to contact GuideStone Property and Casualty, have them review their current policy and see if there are gaps or if there are savings that GuideStone can provide for them as well. They pointed out gaps in our current coverage and certainly helped us to make sure that we had the coverage in place that we needed. I know they have the expertise that I don’t possess . . . to know what types of insurance we need and the amounts that we need — so just trusting GuideStone to take care of those things, where I can focus on ministry.”
