Ministry Description
Bible League International provides God's Word to a lost and needy world. We strive to end the global Bible famine among persecuted Christians, Muslims, and the poor, where Scripture is hard or impossible to get. As a nonprofit evangelical Christian service organization, Bible League International comes alongside local churches and ministries to equip them for Bible-based evangelistic outreach, discipleship, and church planting. We help to grow God's Kingdom across the globe through Bible translation, Bible-based literacy, Bible learning programs, and building the Church. Since its founding in 1938, Bible League International has placed more than 160 million Bibles and New Testaments in the hands of people in more than 80 countries around the world.

In most places where Bible League International serves, people have very limited access to the Scriptures because of persecution, poverty, or limited ability to read. In addition to providing other versions, Bible League translates, publishes, and provides Scriptures in everyday language, making the truth of God available to all. Many Bible League Scripture materials are available in more than 30 languages, with additional translations underway.
BIble League provides materials and training to churches so they can help believers study the Scripture and share the Gospel with the unreached. Through evangelism and discipleship programs like Project Philip, churches learn to plant the Word of God so it can take root and change lives, families, and communities.
For those who cannot read, the Bible is a closed book. Bible-based literacy programs present the life-transforming Word of God to the less-educated, poor, and marginalized, helping them meet Jesus as they work toward a better future through learning to read.
As the Scriptures take root in the lives of believers, BIble League helps congregations learn how to establish new churches. Christian leaders called by God and sent out from the local church are equipped through hands-on training that teaches participants the five steps of church planting: evangelism, discipleship, membership, leadership, and worship.
