Lifewords exists because the Bible is for everyone. We want people everywhere to experience it as good news for their lives, and for the world.
The Bible’s life words transform lives. Lives of street children in India. Lives of East African teenagers. Lives of people in rural Indonesia. Lives of people all over the world. We’re dedicated to helping people discover good news that changes the world.
Cost shouldn’t be a barrier to people finding a way in to the Bible. All our resources and programmes are available free of charge, wherever you are in the world, thanks to the generosity of individuals, churches, and organisations. Please join us in supporting mission around the world by making a donation today.
As organisational members of the Evangelical Alliance, we subscribe to the Alliance Basis of Faith statement.
Lifewords was founded as Scripture Gift Mission in 1888 by the printer, William Walters. He was passionate about the Bible and was determined that it should be available for all.
One of the first Scripture Gift Mission’s resources was an Arabic gospel of John, for use in North Africa. In our history, we have published Bible portions in well over 1,000 languages – including over 200 languages, where no Scripture had been published before.
