A reflection of effective distribution is our growth for which we thank the Lord:
THIRTY THREE GOOD REASONS WHY!
- COST & AUDIENCE: Advertising in the CHRISTIAN BUSINESS GUIDE costs substantially less than comparable display advertising in the Verizon Yellow Pages, and other targeted specialty directories.
Here the distribution is primarily directed to a very loyal, redeemed, called out clientele looking for honest, dependable business people and professionals. Substantial mailings (over 59% of the Buxmont
distribution) to homes, churches, businesses, and Christian schools comprise an important part of the network.
- IDENTIFICATION: (Matthew 5:16) "we are to let our light shine before men." The Lord honors obedience! By having a copy of the CBG in your place of business, and especially with your advertisement
inside, you are saying that you are not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ! Many have allowed the Christian Business Guide to provide a witnessing opportunity to a nonbeliever or as a bridge-building
vehicle of fellowship unite the body of Christ (John 17).
- SHARE THE GOOD NEWS: (Acts 1:8) Christ said, "And ye shall be witnesses unto Me." Your representation in the Christian Business Guide gives you a unique opportunity to take a stand and witness
for Christ in the business world while reaching the thousands of prospective customers with your advertisement all year long. To date over 737 coupons and cards were received in this area in response
to the "Are You Saved?"/How To Be Born Again/HowTo Receive Eternal Life advertisement. Note the Scriptures at the top of each page of the Christian Business Guide. Each respondent is sent a free
New Testament and literature. What other advertising media lifts up God's Word like this?
- LOVE, HONOR, AND PREFER THY BROTHER: The Apostle Paul belabors the point; LOVE your brother (1 John 5:14) Honor your brother (Romans 12:12) and do good especially to your brother
(Galatians 6:10). The Christian Business Guide provides an opportunity to the Christian businessperson and the Christian community to come together.
- PROSPER FOR THE LORD'S SAKE: (3 John 2) Use the Christian Business Guide with faith that you may prosper and give back to the Lord even as he has given to us. Christian ministries here and
across the world are supported as a result of advertising. Reinvest in God's Kingdom by investing in the Christian Business Guide!
