Mission Statement

[Non-profit, nondenominational registered in Macau, China (International Biblical Association)]

Wordproject is an open and royalty free webpage that aims to make the Word of God - the Bible - available to as many people as possible, through a means that is simple, up-to-date and cheap to reproduce and use.
Millions in today's world still do not have access to the Word of God in their own language.
Back in the 90's, with the advent of computer age, computers became accessible to most people and the Internet made the browser one of the most common and easy to use programs, thus, a Bible in a webpage format was easy enough for anyone to use. Simple html technology made it possible to offer the whole Bible in many languages including simplified and traditional Chinese, Pinyin (Romanized Chinese), Portuguese, French, Spanish, German, Russian, Italian, Hindi, Arabic, Urdu, Swahili, Amharic, Tagalog, Greek, Thai, Tamil, Hebrew, Somali, Indonesian, Viet, Turkish, Persian, and many more, which could also display simultaneously in different combinations.

Gradually, Wordproject started to record and offer audio Bible recordings in these main languages of the world. More and more Bible recordings and text were made available for download, wherefore they could be used offline.
As the use of mobile devices (phones, pads and tablets) also increased, Wordproject changed into a mobile compatible site and started to develop downloadable applications for mobile devices, such as our [WP Android Application] and our [ IOS Application.]


Wordproject [as ChristianAsia] has had a presence online since 1997. Those were the early days of the internet and our participation online was simple and limited. Because in those days there were not many digital versions of the Bible online, we started scanning some in 2001. Our main objective was to make the Chinese Bible available in digital format. We created a web page with the Chinese, English and Pinyin Bibles in parallel and distributed in CD format. In those days it was very difficult to obtain Bibles in China. The Chinese, Portuguese and English Bibles were the first to be offered on our site. Thus, for several years we concentrated on this region of the world - Macau and Guangdong province of China. On April 12, 2002 we registered the 'Wordproject' domain, and started to expand to other languages. Gradually the site grew and became more international. Between 2003 and 2008 we recorded the first narration of the Portuguese Bible (JFA). Meanwhile we started recordings the Chinese Bible (CUV) and concluded two instances of the Chinese Si Gao version (Mandarin and Cantonese)in 2010. In 2011 Wordproject sponsored the audio recordings of the Amharic Bible. In 2012 our team in Africa recorded the first Swahili Audio narration of the New Testament, and in 2013 the first Swahili Audio narration of the Old Testament. Ever since we have sponsored the recording of several narrations present in our site, (i.e. Luganda, Tamil, Tagalog, Brazilian Portuguese (NT) and others) and we have been blessed with the permission to use several other narrations, mostly in the public domain, which we are authorized to use for non-profit education/evangelization.
