Faith Comes By Hearings Digital Bible Platform Surpasses 200 Million Users

Albuquerque, N.M. (PRWEB) July 21, 2014

Coming from modest beginnings as a cassette tape lending library more than 40 years ago, Faith Comes By Hearing can truly say they understand and appreciate the saying, Youve come a long way, baby. At one time, the ministry focused solely on those in the American church and provided content in one language English. Today, they are an international organization providing free digital access to Scripture recordings in over 830 languages that are spoken or signed by over 5.7 billion people. Across all of their digital platforms, the ministry has seen Bible engagement from more than 200 million users in just the last four years.

Faith Comes By Hearing (FCBH) has been on the technological forefront in digital Bible distribution with the Digital Bible Platform, which houses the worlds largest repository of digital Scripture text, audio and video that is freely shared with partnering developers via an open API (application programming interface). The system is also what powers the ministrys own distribution points, which now include:

  •     Bible.is app
  •     Deaf Bible app
  •     Bible.is website
  •     Internet Radio Network
  •     Satellite TV
  •     iTunes podcast store
  •     Samsung Smart TV app
  •     Online streaming player
  •     Digital downloads

Troy Carl, FCBH vice president and conceptual creator of the platform, says, Our goal is simple to make the Bible freely available to every person on the planet in a format they can actually use and in a language they understand.


That straightforward focus and commitment was evidenced clearly when Faith Comes By Hearing known as an Audio Bible ministry released the Deaf Bible app almost two years ago. The Digital Bible Platform now houses and provides access to video Bible translations in 14 sign languages, with more being added regularly. The Deaf Bible app is the most downloaded Deaf app in the world and continues to be on the cutting edge of the video-centric technology needed and desired by the Deaf community.

The ministry also has 24/7 Audio Bible channels broadcasting on satellite TV in the Middle East. The current channels are in Arabic, Farsi, Dari, Azerbaijani and Turkish, with plans to expand to other prominent languages spoken in the region. This is done in partnership with SAT-7, who promotes each of these on their own broadcast stations.

We realize that technology is opening many doors to spreading the Good News and by having this Bible content standardized and in a digital format, we are ready for whatever new tech comes next, states Carl.
