Verse by Verse Ministry International is a non-profit, non-denominational, unaffiliated Christian ministry dedicated to promoting the preaching and teaching of God's word clearly and boldly, in its proper historical and theological context, and for the purposes God has ordained: to persuade the unbeliever of the truth of the Gospel and to equip the saints for the work of ministry. This ministry was founded in 2003 on a commitment to provide compelling, verse-by-verse teaching of God's word at no charge (2Cor 2:17), thus ensuring the whole counsel of God is proclaimed (Acts 20:27).

We believe every Christian is commanded by New Testament scripture to become a life-long student of God's word, and this ministry is working to support that goal in our students' lives. While many online teaching ministries exist today, we believe our ministry is unique in what we teach and in how we teach.
Verse By Verse Ministry International teaches entire books of the Bible, and our studies explain carefully and clearly the text of scripture without being distracted by discussions of popular culture, politics, or denominational disputes. Our teaching schedule doesn't vary with the seasons or the holidays. Week after week, we endeavor to explain clearly what God's word says, eventually intending to teach all 66 books of the Bible.
Secondly, we present the word of God in an in-depth, verse-by-verse style. In a time when many preachers either ignore the Bible altogether or merely skim over the surface of the text, jumping from passage to passage regurgitating traditional interpretations, VBVM International digs deeper to reveal the depth and breadth of scripture's meaning. We rarely resort to teaching in a topical style, preferring to let God's word guide our understanding, and we never avoid the difficult passages. We believe real spiritual nutrition is found in the meat of God's word, so we're dedicated to helping our students feast on everything God has provided.
Our ministry operations focus on five key services: authoring, organizing and conducting group verse-by-verse Bible studies; preaching expository sermons by invitation from pulpits throughout the world; maintaining and expanding the VBVM International website; conducting Bible conferences and seminars; and responding to Bible questions submitted by students through the ministry website. In addition to serving students, the ministry also exists to serve the needs of teachers and church leaders through teaching materials suitable for small group Bible education and personal consultation on how to teach the Bible in a verse-by-verse approach. All our services are offered free of charge.
The VBVM International website is the centerpiece of the ministry's work. The site began as a simple way to distribute teachings to Bible class students, but the Lord has grown it into a Bible study resource for millions of students around the world. The VBVM International website distributes over 2,000,000 teachings each year to listeners from over 200 countries free of charge. Glory be to God!
VBVM International also maintains a growing mailing list of ministry supporters. Our list is used to announce new teachings and classes, distribute a ministry newsletter and publicize other news of the ministry. Information provided for our mailing list is never sold or shared with others. Sign up for our mailing list.
VBVM International operates on the provision that God makes available through the prayers and financial contributions of our supporters. The ministry offers all its services and materials free of charge. For information on how to support our work financially, please visit our Financial Support page.
