At Altar Life Church we believe strongly in the power of God's Word to change lives. Although there are an estimated 40,000 Bibles sold in the United States every day and it is estimated that the average household in the US owns 3-4 Bibles it is staggering how many people you talk to who say they do not own a Bible or have never read a Bible and some say they have never held a Bible in their hands. Those are the people we want to target with the Sword Project. Earlier this year, we partnered with New Hope General Baptist Church in Fairfield, Illinois to purchase 1 pallet (1550) of Bibles. In August we donated two cases of Bibles to a youth camp for unchurched kids. We are presently in the process of planning special events that put us in places where we have the opportunity to meet and establish relationships with people who have never read the Word of God.


The Bibles for the Sword Project were purchased from a company called Bibles at Cost. They are easy to read "New Living Translation" New Testaments with a great "Helps" section that leads new converts into a closer walk with Christ as they learn to read and study the Bible. If you would like more information on the Bibles you can see samples at  We are planning another Bible purchase next spring. If you or your church would like to partner with us, please contact us at information/
