Organizational Principles

Purpose & Mission Statement:

Faith Comes By Hearing is a non-profit, donor-driven ministry committed to providing the world with free access to the Word of God in formats people are most likely to use. Founded in 1972, the ministry records complete New Testaments and other Scripture portions voiced by heart-language speakers. Our work is intended to make God’s Word available to all people in the language they use at home, in their community, and when praying. Our mission is to bring His church together and make disciples. We do this by focusing on one purpose - making God's Word freely available everywhere for everyone.

Denomination(s): Interdenominational

Doctrinal Statement:

The purposes for which Faith Comes By Hearing is organized are wholly religious and include the following: To proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord in all that we do. Trusting Jesus Christ as our Savior, we believe in: 1. The Bible as the inspired Word of God. 2. The Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, God’s Son. 3. The vicarious death of Jesus Christ for our sins, His bodily resurrection and His personal return. 4. The presence and power of the Holy Spirit in the work of regeneration.

Core Values:

We are committed to one purpose: God’s Word everywhere for everyone.
