Audio Bibles for Every Texas Household
August 3, 2009
ALBUQUERQUE, NM, (christiansunite.com) -- Sharing the Christian message with every Texas home by Easter--that's the goal of one statewide outreach.
Faith Comes By Hearing, the world's foremost Audio Bible ministry, was called upon by the Baptist General Convention of Texas (BGCT) to provide the Audio Bibles for the Texas Hope 2010 campaign. Texas Hope 2010 is a BGCT outreach to more than 8.8 million homes in Texas.
Recently, Faith Comes By Hearing shipped more than 250,000 Audio Bibles to the El Paso Baptist Association for area households. El Paso is serving as the pilot community for this statewide outreach.
"The Audio Bibles are in a word-for-word, dramatized format--complete with sound effects and music," said Troy Carl, Faith Comes By Hearing's national director. "These Audio Bibles are easy to listen to and people can listen to the Bible while getting ready for their day, while driving to work or while doing household chores."
"We want to give everyone the opportunity to hear the Bible in their own language." said Carl. "And with more than 200 languages spoken in Texas, we are providing the Audio Bible in more than 350 languages to the BGCT for their outreach."
Faith Comes By Hearing records and uses heart- language Audio Bibles to bring His church together and make disciples from every nation, tribe, language and people.
All in all, Faith Comes By Hearing, a non-sectarian, Christian non-profit, has worked with many denominations and organizations on Bible listening projects. In just the last two years, more than 11,000 churches across the country have conducted Bible listening projects using Faith Comes By Hearing Audio Bibles.
Faith Comes By Hearing's mission is to record the New Testament in 2,000 languages and to implement two million Bible listening groups by 2016 to reach the 50% of the world who cannot read and are poor. Currently, the ministry now has 442 Audio Scripture recordings in 377 languages.
