Our Savior God desires all men to be saved and to come to the full knowledge of the truth.

1 Timothy 2:3–4

We’re believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, and we love the Bible!

Bibles for America (BfA) is spreading the interpreted Word across America—one Bible at a time. We do this to help people understand the truths in the Bible, to feed the hungry hearts, and to pay the spiritual debt we owe to others. We’re believers in the Lord Jesus Christ (see our statement of faith), and we love the Bible!

Our main office is in Irvine, California. At our nearby distribution center, faithful volunteers ship out the free Bibles and books while praying for every recipient. We also go on tours throughout the US to visit university campuses, community events, and other locations to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with people and give away Bibles and books in person.

BfA also provides other resources: blog posts on topics related to biblical truth and Christian experience, a podcast, gospel and truth videos, and downloadable e-books.

Bibles for America

Our mission is threefold:


free copies of the New Testament Recovery Version and Christian books.


home-based gatherings for Bible recipients to fellowship and to study the Scriptures.


Bible readers regarding both the fundamental and deeper truths in the holy Word.

BfA is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to distribute free copies of the New Testament Recovery Version and Christian books throughout the United States.

It was founded with the belief that God’s desire for “all men to be saved and to come to the full knowledge of

the truth” (1 Timothy 2:4) must be fulfilled. Since God desires every person to have a complete realization of the truth in His Word, we want to make the Bible available and understandable to all.

You can make a difference and participate in our mission by giving to BfA.

Our Impact

When Bibles for America first began in 2000, we set a goal of giving away 1 million copies of the New Testament Recovery Version, getting this study Bible into 1 percent of all US households. In 2013, we surpassed this milestone, and as of 2018, we had given away more than 1.5 million New Testaments.

In 2004, we also started giving away free Christian books that help believers grow in their faith. To date, we have given away over 3 million copies of these books.


BfA is a public charity recognized as tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of the United States. As a nonprofit organization, we are funded solely by individual contributions and depend on donations to fulfill our mission.

We thank the Lord for leading so many to support BfA with their time, their money, and their prayers, so that millions of people across America can enjoy the free Bible and books we give away.

Donations to Bibles for America qualify as tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
