The mission of Lutheran Bible Translators is to make God's Word accessible to those who do not have it in the language of their hearts. Without access to Scripture in their own language, millions of people remain in the dark as to what God’s Word actually says. Lutheran Bible Translators exists to provide translation and literacy partnership to language communities around the world. When God’s Word is understood, hope is found through the light of Scripture.

Lutheran Bible Translation brings the Word of God to those people who do not have God's Word in their own heart language. We also teach them how to read and write their own language and develop their own system of reading and writing. We do this by establishing relationships with these people first.
We are supporting the work of Bible translation and Scripture Engagement - placing God's Word in their hands (translation) and on their hearts (Scripture engagement).
