All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.II Timothy 3:16-17 (NKJV)

God's Word for the World has a mission to make the Scriptures available to those in unreached areas of the world, in their own language or dialect. Our passion is to see God's Word in the hands of every person in every tribe, tongue, people group and nation within the areas that are unreached at this time.
Every Missionary who has ever preached knows the value of God's Word in the hands of those he is trying to reach (Romans 10:14-17), and every indigenous Missionary and Pastor knows the value of making God's Word available to those who have accepted Christ so they can grow in Christ and be discipled properly.
The value of a people having the Word of God in their own heart language cannot be over emphasized.
Every ministry that is working outside the friendly confines of our Western culture is asking for Bibles, even begging for them. The Bible is God's only revelation to us. New Christians are very susceptible to error and cults, especially those who have never heard the Gospel before.
Today there are 350 million people who do not have any Scripture in their language, and there are over 50 countries that restrict or outright forbid ownership of a Bible. In addition, 1.4 billion people in the world live in extreme poverty and cannot afford food, let alone a Bible.
God's Word for the World is working with Ministries around the world to help bring Scriptures to people in their own heart language. The Scriptures are needed and are in tremendous demand. Seven times we have been asked to supply Comic Book Bibles to children in an entire Country. The Presidents of three of these countries have relayed the message to us through indigenous ministries. Why haven't we followed through with these fantastic opportunities? The plain and simple answer is — We don't have the money to print them.
God's Word for the World is not a big ministry, but we have a Big God and Great Partners. We just want to give you an opportunity to supply Scriptures, plant churches, build church buildings, support ministries, sponsor orphans, help Pastors and now, God's Word for the Children books to children. Think about it!
