IBMGlobal Foundational Financial Principles

We will look to God in prayer for the needs of our Mission. God is the One we trust to provide for this ministry and for the needs of the missionaries who serve with us. We will communicate genuine needs with prayer supporters and local churches but we reject any form of manipulation to garner funding. We will pray and trust God who has promised to provide for His work, we will trust Him to move others to give.

We will not go into debt to expand our ministry. We believe that God has a purpose for this ministry and that He can and will provide for expansion and development according to His will. We will not incur debt to further the work.

We will remember that a laborer is worthy of his hire. We seek to demonstrate that God is able and willing to provide for His servants. We will therefore pay our mission in the USA and staff in other countries in a way that honors them and reflects the value of their service for God. This will not be done in a way that lends itself to luxury or excess, but with a sensitivity to maintain a standard of living that reflects those who are giving to this ministry.
