    Founded in 2000, Bibles for America (BfA) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to give away free copies of the New Testament Recovery Version and Christian books throughout the United States. We're believers in the Lord Jesus Christ (see our statement of faith), and we love the Bible! The unique study Bible and Christian books we give away have helped us personally to understand God's purpose for mankind and to see Christ as the One of peerless worth. Now we share them freely so more people can be spiritually nourished, grow in the Lord, and be brought on to the full knowledge of the truth.

    Our mission is to disseminate free copies of the New Testament Recovery Version and Christian books; to facilitate home-based gatherings for Bible recipients to fellowship and to study the Scriptures; and to educate Bible readers regarding both the fundamental and deeper truths in the holy Word.
