Equip the world to read the Bible, understand it, apply it, and make it a habit… together.
Through the Word is a nonprofit ministry dedicated to equipping people around the world to read the Bible, understand it, apply it, and make it a habit. We provide simple yet powerful tools via the web and mobile apps that lead users on a journey to understand the entire Bible, one chapter at a time. TTW combines clear, balanced, and relatable teaching with direct accessibility. Our purpose is God’s calling: to make disciples, equip the saints, and preach the word. (Mat. 28:19, Eph. 4:12, 2 Tim, 4:2)
“Do you understand what you are reading?” Philip asked. “How can I,” he said, “unless someone explains it to me?”Acts 8:30b-31a
For the average reader, understanding the Bible is not easy. But with just a little help from a good teacher, it is possible — and powerful. Through the Word connects inquisitive readers with excellent teachers. TTW Chapter Audio Guides provide a clear, concise and relatable guide through one Bible chapter in just 5 to 9 minutes. Our goal is to provide outstanding Audio Guides for every chapter in the Bible.
Through the Word creates free, innovative, and simple virtual solutions that allow anyone the opportunity to hear and understand the Word of God. The TTW mobile app and website are intuitive tools for productive daily devotions. We believe that simplicity and accessibility are essentials for tools that readers will actually use.
Through the Word is not an encyclopedia of study aids to store on a bookshelf or hard drive. Rather, TTW is more like a concise travel guide with a clear plan. Each day, TTW takes three basic steps through each chapter in the Bible (see below). By providing a simple guide that is both accessible and easy to use, TTW helps users turn reading the Bible with understanding into an effective daily habit.
