Truth and the Workplace

from The Cape Town Commitment

The Bible shows us God’s truth about human work as part of God’s good purpose in creation. The Bible brings the whole of our working lives within the sphere of ministry, as we serve God in different callings.

Most Christians spend most of their time in work which they may think has little spiritual value (so-called secular work).
