Statement of Faith
In one God, eternally existent in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit;
In the absolute deity and full humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ, God the Son, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His substitutionary and atoning death for all through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory to judge the living and the dead;
In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is empowered to live a holy life, to witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ;
In the divine inspiration of all 66 books of the Old and New Testaments as originally given, guaranteeing their infallibility, entire trustworthiness, and supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct;
That all people are sinners and cannot save themselves. Salvation is received as a free gift of God’s grace, apart from works, through repentance and personal faith in the redemptive work of Christ and the regenerating power of the Holy Spirit;
In the bodily resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the eternal blessedness of the saved, and the eternal punishment of the lost;
In the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ who are thus members of His Body, the Church, whose work is the worship of God, perfecting the saints, and evangelization of the world.
We seek to embody these core values as we use our expertise in the areas of Bible translation, access, and engagement to inspire the worldwide Body of Christ.
We know that as we follow and serve Christ, He will empower and equip us to do all He calls us to do.
By being transparent with each other, we build trust and have greater success in our work.
God has called us to be wise stewards of the resources He has given us, so we can further His Kingdom.
Our goal is to be completely humble – doing nothing out of selfish ambition – patiently bearing with each other in love.
Accountability is an essential part of living and working as a community of believers, united in faith and mission.
We respect God and each other, honoring our Creator and all that He has made.
We are an international organization that values the perspectives and insight of cultures outside the United States.
We are generous in serving each other, as well as our partners, so that more people can be transformed by Christ.
We strive to be faithful to God in all of our work and to follow His will in ministry.
We know that God is the Author of all creativity and we desire to express His creative excellence in all we do.
We are a team, a family, and a part of the Body of Christ. Partnering with each other and with like-minded ministries and churches helps extend our reach and impact.
We desire to keep our promises to each other, to the Lord, and to our partners, living honestly and building trust.
