Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.
When the Pharisees tried to trick Jesus into speaking out against Caesar and the Roman government in Matthew 22, Jesus wisely responded that they should give what was appropriate to the government (Caesar) and also give what was appropriate to God.
Caesar Ministries is committed to helping individuals and churches fulfill Jesus’ command to render unto the government (Caesar) and unto God what is appropriate. Our goal is to help you become a better financial steward of the resources God has given you so you can satisfy your responsibilities to both “Caesar” and God.
Why Caesar Ministries?
Many of our tax clients are Christians. Their ignorance of tax laws and their fear of being audited caused them to often allow the IRS to keep money they could have had refunded and used for their own needs or the Lord’s work. Our goal is to teach them to maximize their refunds and use the money as the Holy Spirit leads.
It became obvious during the preparation of tax returns that most Christians are unable to contribute significantly to the Lord’s work because they fail to follow good financial principles. They are often slaves to debt and this impacts their ability to give biblically. Our goal is to teach them to reduce or eliminate debt and follow biblical financial principles which will allow them the freedom to use their money as the Holy Spirit leads.
Most clergy are more focused on the ministry than tax expertise and they often inadvertently violate tax laws as a result or fail to take legal advantage of them. Our goal is to teach them to be better stewards of the resources God has given them.
Many church financial leaders haven’t been trained in tax matters and make decisions that violate tax laws which put themselves in danger and the church in jeopardy of losing its tax exemption. Our goal is to show them where to find the resources to enable them to make good decisions.
