About Unlocking the Bible
At Unlocking the Bible, our mission is to multiply believers who are rooted in the word of God, growing in love for Christ and bearing fruit, around the world. Our goal is to accomplish this as we:
• Proclaim Christ through Media
• Mobilize Believers in Evangelism
• Equip Leaders for the Church
How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? (Romans 10:14)
Our first pillar is to proclaim Christ through media. We have several intiatives to achieve this pillar:
Radio: Each year, millions worldwide hear of Jesus Christ through Unlocking the Bible. Our program airs on hundreds of stations, impacting the lives of believers and those yet to believe through daily encounters with our risen Lord.
Social/Web: Technology-driven platforms provide great opportunity to share the Word. Our team delivers daily content through the Unlocking the Bible mobile app, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and our website’s blog articles. We aim to make available sound biblical content to people, wherever they are!
Publishing: Unlocking the Bible produces a variety of print resources (books, devotionals, small group studies) to edify Christians and mobilize them to share the gospel. We partner with respected Christian publishers to create these important resources.
“My mind started to function again. I was being touched by something… suddenly something began to drop in a remarkable way. I knew right away Unlocking the Bible was an amazing ministry.” — Sue McLeish
Then [Jesus] said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few” (Matthew 9:37).
We believe that our goal to proclaim Christ through media leads to our second pillar: mobilize believers in evangelism. Our initiatives to achieve this goal include:
• Heaven Book Series
• Heaven Radio Drama
• Regional Heaven play performances
“My faith got me through some really tough days. This is not something we keep to ourselves. God prompted me and reminded me about Unlocking the Bible’s OpentheBible.org site.” — Beth Wetherell
And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, (Ephesians 4:11-12).
As we proclaim the Gospel and mobilize believers in evangelism, this leads to the need for our third pillar: equip leaders for the Church.
At Unlocking the Bible, we equip people through three training offerings:
• A full-time Church Residency Experience for those called to pastoring, church planting or cross-cultural missions. Residents gain experience by being fully immersed in the ministries of our partner church, The Orchard, over a two-year period.
• A two-year course called MOMENTUM for those called to vocational ministry. Sessions focus on Life, Doctrine, and Skills and are taught by ministry practitioners from The Orchard.
• A sixteen-week course called LEVERAGE focused on refreshing, inspiring, and sharpening those called to lay-leadership in the church.
To find out more about our training program, or how you might apply to it, visit the Equipping Leaders for the Church page.
“Unlocking the Bible’s Residency program gave me a deep, heavy burden; being a pastor is not doing ministry for God. It is doing ministry with God. This conviction wouldn’t be there without Unlocking the Bible.” — Kyle Green
