Bibles For The World is a catalyst for individual
and cultural transformation through
Christ and the power of God's Word
While the Bible remains the most popular, most read book across the globe, more than 2 billion people have never had a chance to read God’s Word. That’s why BFTW works to provide Scriptures in regions where there is little or no access to the Bible.
Since 1973, when the Partnership Mission Society became Bibles For The World, friends and partners like you have helped provide God’s Word to people in 123 Nations in a variety of forms — New Testaments, Gospels, and full Bibles. You can have a dramatic impact by helping place Scriptures in hands that are eager to read the life-transforming message of God’s love and forgiveness!
Bibles For The World works in areas where there is restricted access to God’s Word, where copies are scarce or among peoples where Christianity is beginning to take root — such as Nepal, Cambodia, areas of India and other Asian and SE Asian nations. We often provide copies of the New Testament or Gospels of John, like the ones pictured at right.

Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. This is the first mention of Satan in the Bible, and while he is not on every page, he has a leading role. He is called the Destroyer (Revelation 9:11), the enemy (Luke 10:19), the father of lies (John 8:44), a murderer (John 8:44), the evil one (Matthew 5:37) and many other things. Satan is God’s enemy, but he cannot attack God directly, so he attacks those made in God’s image, and dearly loved by him. Satan knows his doom is […]
Genesis 2:3 God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done. After God created the world, we might imagine he was tired. But the amount of God’s power that he used to make the world was mathematically zero. God’s power is infinite, so no matter how much power he uses, it is never at all diminished. God did not rest because he was tired, but because resting is good. It is also good for us. Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and […]
The final section of our overview of Scripture is the culmination of God’s plan – the most exciting part of the story! The Bible timeline has covered more than two thousand years, but these final five sections begin to accelerate God’s story following the exile of the Jews to Babylon. The Bible’s Storyline Comes to a Conclusion… 11. The Restoration: When the king of Persia defeated Babylon, he allowed the Jews to return home (539 BC), just as God had said. Many stayed behind, but those who went back rebuilt the temple and tried to follow God. They were a tiny fraction […]
Continuing our series on the Bible’s storyline, this week’s look at the middle sections of Scripture picks up after the death of Moses and follows the establishment of God’s people in the Promised Land. It includes the rise and fall of Israel and Judah and the ultimate exile of the Jews because of their disobedience to God. Continuing the Bible’s Storyline… 6. The Conquest: Joshua led the next generation of Israelites into the Promised Land (1406 BC). As Moses led them through the Red Sea (Exodus 14:29), Joshua led them across the Jordan River on dry ground (Joshua 3:17). With God’s help, […]
Understanding the Bible should be the goal of every believer in Christ. But, unfortunately, too many people give little time to actual Bible study. Bible verses or books are picked at random to read because they are popular or they speak to a situation the reader is going through. Your understanding of God’s Word will take on an exciting and enriching dynamic when you learn the “larger story” of Scripture and how ALL of the Bible fits into a narrative that starts “in the beginning” and ends with the Revelation written by the Apostle John. The 66 books of the Bible are […]
This #GivingTuesday — December 1 — you can help provide God’s Word to people in several regions of China… One significant event that HASN’T changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic is GIVING TUESDAY 2020 — that special day in the midst of so-called “consumer holidays”, like Black Friday and Cyber Monday. While those post-Thanksgiving, consumer-focused shopping days promise great deals on everything from DVDs to smart TVs, Giving Tuesday provides an outlet for more charitably-minded folks to give to their favorite nonprofit organization. Want to help this Giving Tuesday? CLICK HERE… A movement that began in 2012 to help boost […]
On September 14, EFCI Child Evangelist, Pastor Elson J. Thiek, suffered a fall from about 20′ while helping with a church construction at Hmarkhawlien. He was rushed to a nearby clinic, and then to a hospital at Silchar, where they were able to do a CAT scan. Pastor Thiek had suffered severe head injuries, and needed emergency surgery at Gauhati, but while they were arranging transportation to Gauhati, he passed into the arms of our Savior before surgery could be performed. Pastor Elson was one of the first graduates from the Partnership Mission Society English School, and received his B.Th. (2010) […]
For the past several years, Bibles For The World has explored ways to reach the difficult regions of East and Southeast Asia. Recent work in China and Cambodia has resulted in more than one million people receiving printed copies of God’s Word. But now God is prompting Bibles For The World and a number of strategic partners to advance the reach of the Gospel throughout East and Southeast Asia . God is preparing for an enormous spiritual harvest of souls in places like: Vietnam – Cambodia – Myanmar – Mongolia – China – Japan and more! That’s why Bibles For […]
Bibles For The World joins with millions of Christ-followers in mourning the loss of Ravi Zacharias, who passed away May 19 after a brief battle with sarcoma, a very aggressive cancer. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his friends and family. Dr. Ravi came to faith through the ministry of Youth for Christ. Since that moment, he dedicated his life as a servant for God, spreading the Gospel and sharing his wisdom on apologetics around the globe. His home going was a bittersweet event for Bibles For The World president and CEO John L. Pudaite. “Ravi and my dad, Rochunga […]
While the corona virus has raced across the globe, it has left in its wake different kinds of suffering. For many, it has been the “inconvenience” of sheltering in place. Others have faced weeks of painful symptoms and hospitalization. And, tragically, hundreds of thousands have lost their lives. Some regions, however, tend to suffer more than others — especially those where millions live in extreme poverty, where the loss of even a meager income can mean devastation to a family. That is the case in NE India, where Bibles For The World’s many ministry activities are focused. BFTW employs nearly […]
For decades, Bibles For The World has helped meet the healthcare needs of the poor in its home region in Manipur, NE India. Sielmat Christian Hospital treats thousands of patients each year for a variety of injuries, diseases and preventive actions. The Hospital has been directed by the Manipur state government to prepare 10 beds in an isolation ward for a possible outbreak of COVID-19 in the state. This order has been complied with, though the Hospital is severely lacking in the equipment/supplies to fully comply. As India has now gone into a 21-day lockdown until April 15, there is […]
Not only Americans, but people across the globe have embraced the #GivingTuesday movement in the past few years… Statistics show that, last year alone, $400 million was raised for charitable purposes of all types as a result of the efforts to mobilize online and other methods of giving on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. Bibles For The World is also encouraging partners and friends to consider making a special effort to give on #GivingTuesday. This year the ministry’s focus is to provide God’s Word to people in China, where Bibles are very scarce. “We‘ve seen a tremendous appreciation for the Bibles, New […]
It still seems unfathomable that large portions of the world’s population remain unreached with the Gospel… Take a look at the map above. The red dots indicate the locations of identifiable people groups with at least 5,000 people that have yet to be reached with the message of God’s love and forgiveness through Jesus Christ. “How can it be,” people are inclined to ask, “that after two centuries the work of the Great Commission is not yet completed?” It’s a valid question. What is shocking is the sheer number of unreached people groups — and the total population — of […]
Bibles For The World was pleased to provide Spanish-language Gospels of John to attendees of the Luis Palau Association’s Festival Outreach to Bogota, Colombia, in August. More than 50,000 people received these copies of special edition Gospels of John printed especially for this outreach! The effort brought together more than 850 churches and trained more than 12,000 local followers of Christ – all focused on a week-long campaign to saturate the city and surrounding region with the Gospel. “This was a special chance to participate in a truly historic event in Colombia,” said John Pudaite, Bibles For The World president. “Luis […]
When the opportunity comes to be a blessing to others, you take it. Bibles For The World provided such an opportunity to a group of World Racers and a group from Project Cure last week. The groups combined with staff from Sielmat Christian Hospital to bless the lives of thousands of residents of Churachandpur, a community in northeast India’s Manipur State. A free Medical Camp was held to provide services and treatments to people in poverty who would, otherwise, be unable to afford medical care. “We had quite a four-day event,” said John Pudaite, president of Bibles For The World. […]
Bibles For The World joins with millions to mourn the passing of Rev. Billy Graham. BFTW founder Dr. Rochunga Pudaite met Rev. Graham in Glasgow in 1955 where the evangelist was preparing to hold crusades. “Ro” was a young student at the Bible Training Institute in Glasgow and had volunteered to help promote the upcoming crusade by the American evangelist. Ro was surprised to receive phone call inviting him to meet Graham at his hotel. “I’ve heard reports from various prayer groups that your whole tribe back in India is praying for our crusade in Scotland,” said Graham. “It is true,” […]
Bibles For The World launches new initiative to promote Bible knowledge. “People who READ the Bible have a greater appreciation of the power of God’s Word to transform lives overseas,” says John Pudaite, president of Bibles For The World. While the ministry focuses the vast majority of its activity across regions of the world where God’s Word is scarce, Pudaite is concerned about the growing level of Bible illiteracy in the United States. “Because of our focus on the power of God’s Word to transform lives we have a unique opportunity to help foster a new appreciation for the Bible […]
Response to the need for “gifts of light” in India was overwhelming… Partner parents and other donors understood the need for solar lanterns to help students in India have light at night for study. The accompanying photos demonstrate what a difference these simple solar lamps are making already for the thousands of students enrolled in Bibles For The World’s 30+ Christian schools across northeast India. THANK YOU to all who participated in this special campaign to provide these most practical Christmas gifts to children and their families. Also receiving the special gifts were all school staff and administrators, students and […]
“Placing God’s Word in the hands of people where Bibles are scarce or completely unavailable is the challenge we face. Completing the Great Commission is dependent upon people having access to the Gospel”
