Mission Statement

We want to see the Word of God transforming lives in every language community to spread the knowledge of God’s glory through community engaged Bible Translation.

 

About half of the world's 7,000 languages do not yet have even one translated verse of God's Word in the language of their hearts.

When God’s Word comes alive in a community’s language it brings renewal, transformation and new life. Wycliffe South Africa is privileged to partner with local churches and Bible Translation organisations across southern Africa to bring God's Word to them as soon as possible.

OUR CORE VALUES

HIS GLORY

HIS GLORY

We seek God’s glory among nations and seek every opportunity to give God all the glory. God-centred, bold, courageous and obedient; and in humility, always pointing to God.

THE WORD

THE WORD

We pursue the transforming power of the Word of God in our own lives and work passionately to share this with those people who still need to hear it in their own language.

THE CHURCH

THE CHURCH

We believe in the centrality of the Church in the fulfilment of God’s mission on earth. The Church is the bride of Christ, and our attitude and the way we speak about the Church should always mirror the love of Christ for His bride.

PRAYER

PRAYER

We are led by the Holy Spirit as we pray. Prayer is the fibre that runs through all we do, every decision we take, everyone we meet with and every project we are involved in.

RELATIONSHIP

RELATIONSHIP

We follow Jesus and have an authentic relationship with Him. We honour and respect all people, and endeavour to guard, strengthen and restore our relationships. We delight in working together in community for the sake of advancing His Kingdom through Bible translation in partnerships. We consider it a real privilege to participate in the Bible Translation Movement and joyfully serve all stakeholders.

THE WYCLIFFE LOGO

Our vision is the Word of God transforming lives in every language community. This explains our choice of Habakkuk 2:14 as the biblical basis for our overall vision and brand motif –

“For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea”.

VISION 2025

There is a pressing need for all peoples to have access to the Word of God in a language that speaks to their hearts. We trust God to accomplish the impossible. We embrace the vision that by the year 2025 a Bible translation will have started in every language that needs it by 2025. 

This is not about the date, but is instead a call to action and a motivation for us.
