About Us


THE GREAT COMMISSION
In obedience to the Great Commission: "All authority in heaven and earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations … teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always" (Mathew 28:18-20), Bibles To Nations (BTN) is reaching people with God's Word around the world. The task is challenging, fulfilling and rewarding.
THE QUEST FOR GOD
More than ever before, people are in search of God from every culture and religion. With the increase of knowledge and intelligence, they are looking to God to experience peace, love, comfort and meaning of life. God's Word is more in demand today than at any other time.
FULFILLING THE NEED
BTN provides God's Word, the Holy Bible, to children, adults and seniors in culturally relevant formats specific to country, region and language. By putting God's Word into their hands, we are connecting them with our Lord JESUS CHRIST.
THE POWER OF GOD'S WORD
God's Word has the power to change people's lives. After reading it, millions have received new life in Jesus Christ. To counter the world's problems, God's Word is the only solution. No other word has the power of the Bible to expose the fallacy of the human heart before God.

Therefore, BTN is taking the Bible into the hands of people of all walks of life - school children, youth, women, priests, politicians, professionals, patients, tribes, sex workers, disaster victims and senior citizens. HIV/AIDS is spreading rapidly, affecting millions of innocent lives in South Africa, Swaziland, Botswana, Uganda and India. What can bring hope into their lives? The answer is God's Word.
OPENNESS TO GOD'S WORD
The majority of people are searching for solutions to life's problems in the Word. They are open to reading, listening, watching and browsing. Unfortunately, many are looking toward a wrong path because the real Word is not made available to them. The fact is they do not know what the true Word is and where to find it.
GOD IS AT WORK
God is revealing Himself to people while reading His Word. Many are turning to Him to follow Him. This is evident and seen in the lives of people from an orphan girl to a temple priest. Billy Graham once said: "The Bible is the greatest evangelist."

God says: "My Word that goes out from my mouth; It will never return to me empty, but will accomplish what I have desired and achieve the purpose for which I sent it" (Isaiah 55:11). God is working everywhere. His manifestation is seen and experienced by tribes, prisoners, and even religious fundamentalists because He is living and active today.
BIBLICAL ADVOCACY
BTN is campaigning and encouraging people to read the Bible for all needs and occasions. We are mobilizing the churches to teach the Word profusely from the pulpits. BTN motivates the Pastors to preach and live the Word. Leadership conferences are being conducted to equip them with teaching materials. The Church must preach the message of salvation boldly and be a living Church to glorify the Incarnate and Living God.
QUALITY SCRIPTURES
God's Word is precious. In many cultures people respect it, honor it and worship it. It is sacred to them. A great sentiment is attached to it. BTN is producing quality Scriptures - The Holy Bible, New Testament, Gospels and selections - in attractive and appropriate designs. Each Scripture is uniquely presented with dignity making God's Word come alive.
METHOD OF DISTRIBUTION
BTN is sharing the Scripture to all segments of communities - schools, prisons, hospitals, temples and tribes. The team consists of local Church volunteers. Every book includes a postage-paid reply card which enables us to follow-up in counseling and discipleship, with each individual, through personal care and connection with the local Church.
THE CHALLENGE AHEAD
Our Lord says: "The Gospel must first be preached to all nations" (Mark 13:10). This task is huge, arduous, sensitive, risky and above all, challenging. However, it must be done. Yes, it can be done with dedication, discipline and determination.
Under God, BTN's mission is to present 25 million Scriptures to people in the coming ten years. Together, let us build the Kingdom of God.
