Play It ForWord
God's Word empowers men and women around the world to live transformed lives - when it is available in their language and they can read it. For minority language groups that don't yet have Scripture or an alphabet, the need is great.
We invite you to give someone who needs Jesus the gift of the gospel in their own language.
Your investment in OneBook's locally led Bible translation, literacy, and community development initiatives will give those in minority language communities the chance to:
discover the gospel,
learn to read and write their language,
dive deeper into Scripture,
and reclaim hope for a better future.
Spending of funds is confined to board-approved programs and projects. Each gift designated toward an approved program or project will be used as designated with the understanding that when the financial needs are met, or the project is completed or cannot be completed for any reason, as determined by the board, funds will be used where needed most.
LIFE—Fully understanding the gospel brings salvation, life change, and spiritual growth.
EDUCATION—Learning to read and write opens the door to greater opportunities and promotes the value of education.
HEALTH—From reading about hygiene and nutrition to building community through understanding God's love, physical and mental health is improved.
FAITH—As churches and communities engage with God's Word, the truth of Scripture becomes part of daily life and faith is strengthened.
GROWTH—When people know how to raise crops effectively and have the language skills to conduct business more clearly, they are better able to provide for themselves and their families.
EQUALITY—As people understand God's Word and learn about rights for women, children, and the oppressed, attitudes are changing, and people are being set free.
Then Jesus said, “Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear.” Mark 4:9 (NIV)
