Church Extension Plan is a ministry providing premier financial and administrative services to the churches and districts of the Assemblies of God and their constituents, assisting them in fulfilling their vision of spreading the Gospel.

  • Your vision is valued.

    We believe that God has given unique vision to the Assemblies of God Church and its leaders. So unlike for-profit lenders, we evaluate passion and conviction alongside budgets and spreadsheets. We will equip you with quality financial resources to build, expand, remodel, relocate, or refinance and join you in pursuing God’s calling for your church. When you choose to work with CEP, you’re choosing more than just a lender, you’re choosing a partner in ministry.

  • Your story is powerful.

    At CEP, we take the concept of “investing in ministry” literally. Since 1950, our investors have contributed more than $2 billion to fund thousands of ministry loans nationwide. And, although past performance doesn’t guarantee future results, no investor has ever lost money! By investing with CEP, you will not only reap the rewards of our competitive rates and flexible terms, you will also create opportunities for real world impact and ignite stories of ministry growth across the nation.

  • Your future is abundant.

    No matter how we envision our retirement, history shows that most of us aren’t prepared to achieve those hopes and dreams. To help alter this reality and enable possibilities, we provide Traditional and Roth IRA options as well as a 403(b) plan for Assemblies of God ministries. While you gain income and tax benefits, ministries throughout America will also receive the financial support needed to thrive. Start planning for your future today, and, eventually, you’ll find you’ve funded more than your own future.
