What Makes Us Different

When it comes to financial services providers, you have plenty of choices. But while others see money as a goal, we see it as a tool – for serving God, your family and your community.

Thrivent members: Being wise with money, living generously and changing lives.


Our mission statement guides us in all we do.

We are a membership organization of Christians, and our members are our owners.

Our purpose is to serve our members and society by guiding both to be wise with money and live generously.

We believe that all we have is a gift from God and that generosity is an expression of faith.

We succeed when our members, their families and their communities thrive.

We value our relationships, so we will: Be trustworthy in character and competence, and Act like owners and treat each other as owners, and Live balanced and generous lives.

Expressing your faith through time, talent or treasures.

Comfortable & Confident

Our research shows that how people feel about money is tied to their generosity, but those feelings aren't necessarily related to how much money they make. In fact, beyond a certain point, generosity doesn't go up as a person's income does – it actually goes down. We're exploring the reasons why. Meanwhile, we'll listen to your wants and needs, and partner with you on the journey to feeling more financially secure and living even more generously than you are today.
