God’s Word at Work in the World

Hundreds of thousands of people outside of the U.S. study God’s Word through Community Bible Study every week in 100 countries. Here is a little bit of how we do it:

Translating
We want to remove any barriers that might keep people from attending a Bible study in their country. Being able to study the Word of God in your heart language is a critical step in this process, which is why we are constantly translating our Bible studies. For many, we provide one of the first in-depth Bible studies available in their language. Our translators work hard to keep up with the demand for more lessons.

CBS has courses in more than 70 languages:

Albanian, Amharic, Anglicized English, Arabic, Armenian, Bahasa, Bari, Basque, Bemba, Bulgarian, Burmese, Cebuano, Changana, Chichewa, Chinese (Cantonese), Chinese (Mandarin), Creole, Czech, Danish, Dioula, Dutch, English, Farsi, Fijian, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hakha Chin, Hausa , Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Khmer, Kinyarwanda, Kirundi, Korean, Kyrgyz, Lango, Latvian, Lithuanian, Luganda, Malagasy, Malayalam, Marathi, Mizo Chin, Moore, Nepali, Norwegian, Oromiffa, Polish, Portuguese, Punjabi, Romanian, Runyoro, Russian, Serbian, Shona, Slovakian, Spanish, Spanish (Castellano), Swahili, Swedish, Tagalog, Tamil, Telegu, Thai, Tigrinya, Ukrainian, Urdu, Welsh

Training
As local believers express an interest in starting a CBS class in their area, our CBS international team (which often includes CBS ambassadors called “Calebs”) comes alongside these believers, praying with them and training them. Local leaders are trained to effectively teach, shepherd and facilitate our studies. Click here to find out more about our Caleb ministry and how you can provide for international training needs.

Caring
Relationships are crucial! God gave us the ultimate example of a caring shepherd in His Son, Jesus. A good shepherd always places the needs of his sheep ahead of his or her own needs. Our CBSI shepherds give sacrificially of their time because of their love for Jesus and His people.
