Planting God's Word so People Meet Jesus
Over the years, Bible League has published and placed Scriptures in more than 450 languages in countries from the Arctic to the jungles of Africa and the Amazon. In 2011, Bible League provided more than 2 million Scriptures worldwide, and currently works in more than 55 countries, with ministry partners and local churches in areas of the world where the Bible is still a forbidden book.
Rather than randomly distributing Bibles, however Bible League strategically places Scriptures through small group Bible studies and partners who do similar training. This way, instead of gathering dust, Bibles are used to deepen the faith of Christians and, by God's grace, to help non-Christians believe in Christ. In studying the Bible together, small groups learn about sharing their faith, and discipleship—how to live and grow as a Christian—according to God's Word. They also learn to support, guide, and encourage each other in their faith.
That is the Bible League strategy: to help people understand God's Word through Bible study and provide the Scriptures to make it happen—all around the world.
