Bible for Everyone
When God speaks, the atmosphere changes and with one word, darkness flees.
When God speaks, the enemy is defeated. Every person living in bondage can be set free… when God speaks.
And yet, there are still people who don’t know God speaks their language. There are still almost a billion people who have limited access to God’s Word.
You are one in 7 billion…
…But your one life could impact millions.
“Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone…”
These were some of the last words Jesus said before He ascended into Heaven. And yet today, two thousand years later, most languages don’t have a complete New Testament. And more than 165 million people don’t have even one Bible verse in their language.
Today, we’re inviting you to join us: Let’s fulfill the Great Commission.
Just as YouVersion uses technology to help you connect with God in His Word, our Bible translation partners are leveraging technology to offer that same opportunity to everyone else.
…before people can pray to the Lord for help, they must believe in him. And before they can believe in the Lord, they must hear about him.…
The plan is set.
Translating the Bible into another language used to take decades. But visionary organizations like illumiNations and their alliance of partners now project that with enough funding, the New Testament could be translated for 99.9 percent of the world’s population by the year 2033. Incredibly, Bible translators also think they should be able to get the rest of the Bible translated for 95 percent of the world within that same timeframe (and at least some portion of Scripture for everyone else).
We’re all in.
In 2017, YouVersion created Bible for Everyone, a Bible translation initiative where we work with partners to identify strategic projects that could, with modest additional funding, rapidly provide Scripture to huge numbers of people. In addition, Life.Church committed to match any contributions the global YouVersion Community makes toward Bible translation, up to $1 million.1
It’s already working.
In the first four years, the YouVersion Community and Life.Church helped fund translation projects for 28 languages spoken in 15 countries with the potential to reach over 7.5 million people.
This is our moment in history.
This is your moment to make history.
Join the movement and help transform lives around the world by giving regularly to #BibleforEveryone.
…the father said to his servants, “Hurry! Bring the best clothes and put them on him. Also, put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet.… My son was…lost, but now he is found!”

1 All contributions received through the Bible for Everyone campaign will be used exclusively for the purpose of Bible translation. As each project is completed, any remaining funds are then applied toward the next translation project, as selected by YouVersion and its partners.
