Life transformed through the Bible

Invitation to the thirsty

As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
ISAIAH 55:10-11 (NIV)

Our Vision

We firmly believe that life is transformed through the Bible because the Bible leads us to Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the world.  We are committed to encouraging people of all faiths and none to engage with the Bible with an open heart and mind.  We believe that God uses his Word, by the power of his Spirit, to speak his love into people’s lives.
