The Gideons Ministry
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations”… Matthew 28:19
A Unique Focus
One Spirit, One Mind, One Vision
Striving Side by Side for the Faith of the Gospel
Gideons are God-called members, brothers and sisters in Christ, husbands along with their wives—striving side by side to effectively and joyfully reach the world with the Good News.
One Vision means working in one spirit and one mind with these three groups:
• Christian business and professional men
• Their wives, as a testimony to the Biblical institution of marriage
• Protestant, evangelical churches and assemblies as partners in the Great Commission
A Worldwide Impact
Changing Lives for More than 100 Years
The Gideons International began distributing the Word of God in 1908. Today, there are more than 269,500 Gideons and Auxiliary – and an untold number of supporters – in some 200 countries, territories, and possessions across the globe. These dedicated individuals have given their time and money to make it possible for others to learn about the love of God by giving them access to His Word. We have placed and distributed more than 2 billion Bibles and New Testaments around the world.
Personally Sharing our Faith
Two of our own men serve as members of The Gideons International and share their faith because they realize how often people today need someone to come alongside them in finding their way to true salvation that is available only through the grace of God. As opportunities arise, they take time to share the Gospel message with friends and family, business acquaintances, and other people we meet who are struggling in their daily lives.
