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 is a member of FOBA.

Our ministry in Kenya

Lifewords Kenya runs two projects: Choose Life, Pavement Project, and using the Bible Resources, also reach out to Prison Inmates, High School Students and Youths in churches through The RISE strategy.

  • Pavement Project – a unique Bible-based counselling process used with street children and
  • Choose Life – a curriculum for African schools, helping 11-14s to apply the biblical values of love, peace, justice, freedom, and community to their everyday lives.

We also provide free Bible resources to help share the Bible’s life-changing words in local communities. We have resources available in a wide range of languages.

If you’re based in Kenya, then you can order Bible resources through our Kenya office.

Wherever you are, you can also order resources online from our Global Bible Resources website – and receive your materials in the post.

If you are interested in partnering with us or taking part in Pavement Project or Choose Life training, please contact us at the address below.

If you are an organisation or ministry looking to partner with us to produce Bible resources for a particular need or language (or you want to reproduce something from our extensive back-catalogue) then please get in touch.

Lifewords story

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.

Today Lifewords’ offices are present on various continents – and through publications, projects and digital resources we deliver God’s Word to over 200 countries.
