WHY BIBLE TRANSLATION?
The Bible reveals who God is.
Have you ever thought about what your life might look like if you never had access to the Bible in your language? The Bible helps us draw close to God; as we read it and meditate on it, the Holy Spirit speaks to our hearts and we are transformed by the truth of the gospel.
The Bible is God’s inspired Word.
And when the Bible is available to people in the language that speaks directly to their hearts, individuals, families—and entire communities—can be transformed.
Through Bible translation, people everywhere can connect with a God who speaks their language and find salvation through Jesus Christ.
The world is home to thousands of languages.
While millions of people may have limited understanding of the world’s major languages, the language they use to express their deepest thoughts, ideas and desires is their mother tongue—the language of their heart.
Access to God’s Word in their heart language changed the lives of Hidalia in Guatemala, Gabriel in Timor and Folopa women in Papua New Guinea.
Are mother tongue Scriptures really that important? Hidalia shares about life in her Pokomchi village and the impact of God’s Word in their heart language.
After Gabriel Bria stole a Bible to learn more about God, everything changed. Now a pastor, he explains why his congregation needs Scripture in their mother tongue.
