The top 13 Christian Based MLM Companies in the world…
While there are those who would say differently, I believe the United States of America was founded on Christian values.
I will not go into a debate as to which Christian religious structure has it right, but I will say that we need to put our faith, our trust and our belief in God Almighty before everything else.
After all, it is He who made us and when we say Christian, we are affirming the presence of God’s Son who was nailed to a cross to be the Holy sacrifice for our sins.
There may be those of you reading this post who do not have the same belief.
That is your choice and I will not scream hellfire and damnation at you.
There are many other people that have similar beliefs as I do, and that is the subject of today’s post.
We will look at the top 13 Christian based MLM companies.
While I am at it, I know that there are some who claim that multilevel marketing is completely non-Christian.
I will just have to say that if that is your belief, you may as well just say that every business is non-Christian.
There are good and bad people in all business structures.
MLM is simply a business format and it can be handled ethically or not, so do not blame it on the business structure but on the individual who is managing their business improperly.
That is something else that I love about Christian based multilevel marketing companies – they instill Christian values in their distributors so they will use ethical means in their business.
Even the Christian financial advisor Dave Ramsey says: “Multilevel marketing companies (also known as MLMs) have a bad rap. Some of it is deserved, and some of it isn’t. MLMs are often labeled as “pyramid schemes,” but that’s not true. The difference is that pyramid schemes are illegal because they offer no product. With MLMs, a product or service is the basis for the business.”
I suggest you read Dave’s article about MLMs: http://www.daveramsey.com/blog/guide-joining-multilevel-marketing-company
So, let’s take a look at the top 13 Christian based MLM companies.
They are in no particular order, and I am not affiliated in any way with these companies except for the occasional use of a product or two.
I am providing this information to help you in your choice of a MLM company to possibly affiliate yourself with.
1: 31 Gifts
Cindy Moore founded 31 Gifts in 2003, and they are headquartered in Columbus, Ohio.
The 31 comes from the working woman in Proverbs 31 in the Holy Bible.
I suggest you open your Bible and read that Proverb.
Not only is 31 Gifts in business to make profits, they also are in it to give back.
They have a charitable program called 31 Gives that is helping women, girls and families to live a fulfilling and purpose driven life.
31 Gifts has a wide variety of products, and many are meant to be gifts for others.
I happen to know a 31 Gifts consultant who just loves the company and the products.
2: La Bella Baskets And Gifts
Headquartered in Lakeway, Texas, La Bella Baskets and Gifts was founded in 2009 by two women with the names of Janis and Mia.
Just entering their website, I see a “We Are Thankful Sale.”
Looking at the multiple products offered on the La Bella website, you can plainly see the Christian values they have.
And when we read the La Bella mission statement, there is no doubt:
“To bring joy, love and beauty to others, to seek good in life, to appreciate the sweetness of each day while inspiring everyone to believe that anything is possible.”

3: Mary Kay
Mary Kay Ash founded this now monstrous MLM company in 1963.
And, Mary Kay Ash had a strong belief in God and felt a huge desire to empower other women.
Mary Kay also was given wise words to speak, and that is where this quote from that wonderful woman came from:
“God didn’t have time to make a nobody, only a somebody.I believe that each of us has God-given talents within us waiting to be brought to fruition.”
Founded in 2004 and headquartered in Springboro, Ohio, Just Jewelry puts God at the forefront of their business.
The first mention in their beliefs is that God has a purpose for each of us.
Just Jewelry is letting the light shine too.
They have what is called the Plumpy’ Nut Project.
For every Faith, Hope and Love bracelet sold, they donate 2 Plumpy’ Nut Treatments to starving children.
So far, there have been 47,000 meals served.
Our God is an awesome God.

5: F.A.I.T.H. Company
Pam and Mark Hatchard founded this faith based, God driven MLM company in Addison, Texas.
The jewelry is all handmade and many of the artisans are refugees.
I just love the scripture at the bottom of the website.
It is Jeremiah 29:11 – I have a plan for you declares the Lord: one to prosper you, not to harm you and one to give you hope for a brighter tomorrow.

They sell many items that can keep women feeling safe.

This well known MLM company is endorsed by some top names in sports, but their biggest endorser is God.
Because First Fitness Nutrition puts God first above all.
The weight loss program is considered phenomenal.

9: Mary & Martha
Well, the name of his MLM tells us immediately that it is Christian home decor company.
Mary and Martha were friends of Jesus and were there when he was crucified.
So much about this MLM company is based on Biblical principles.
They even are giving Bibles to children through Compassion International.

10: Daisy Blue Naturals
Headquartered in Albert Lea, Minnesota, Daisy Blue Naturals are products made of all natural products for your skin.
Just viewing their website, you can tell hat it was hatched with Christian values.
What I love is the help that Daisy Blue Naturals is giving to Kids Inspiring Kids.
Helping to feed kids in Uganda and working at battling the upheaval of kids in cities around the nation and the world.

11: Close To My Heart
This unique MLM company was started in 2002 in Pleasant Grove, Utah.
Just the name alone told me immediately that God is in charge of the company.
The CEO is Jeanette Lynton, but the true Boss is in Heaven.
So what does Close To My Heart sell?
Patterns and how to make scrapbooks to keep your precious memories alive forever.
Plus Close To My Heart supports Operation Smile that has put smiles on the faces of children around the world.
I suggest you “pop in” to the Close To My Heart website at: http://www.closetomyheart.com/default.aspx
12: Art & Soul
Since 1970, Gay Zurich has been making personalized cartoons and gifts for any, and everyone.
Just seeing her beautiful works of art tell me that there is a heavenly helper guiding her talents.
And you can have your own business selling Gay’s art and designs.
Art & Soul is headquartered in Waukesha, Wisconsin and I believe you will enjoy visiting he website at: http://www.artandsoulinc.com/
Founded in 1959, Amway, I would say, is the largest MLM in the United States and probably the world.
As I see it, the majority of Amway systems are born on Christian values.
I have been told that at major conferences they have prayer and even have church services.
Now there are some that claim that Amway is similar to a cult, but I would have to disagree.
While I am not involved with Amway, I know several people who are, and they do not seem to be living cultish extremism.
Well, there you have my top 13 Christian based MLM companies.
What are your thoughts?
Do you know of any others that I may have missed?
I will say that there are many other MLM companies that have Christian distributors.
Now I will say that if you are a Christian and considering joining a MLM, be diligent in researching that company to make sure you will stay within your Christian values.
There are several things to consider:
It all belongs to God
Be responsible with your money; Make a budget
It is better to give than receive
Consider this quote by Randy Alcorn, “God prospers me not to raise my standard of living, but to raise my standard of giving.”
If you trust God and obey His Word, I believe you can do just fine with a MLM business.
Just follow the Godly principles you know, and the path you take will be bright.
And, for those of you that are not Christian, that is okay.
Well not really, but I cannot force you to become one, that is your choice, but I do know that you can still be a non-Christian and follow upstanding principles.
Please do so with your MLM business and together we can change the bad impressions so many have on MLM.
And with that I will say, God Bless You All.
