Truth For Life teaches the Bible so that unbelieving people will become the committed followers of Jesus Christ, existing followers of Christ will deepen their understanding of Scripture and grow in their faith, and the expositional teaching of the Bible will establish a pattern for pastors to use, and for congregants to grow accustomed to hearing, so that local churches will be strengthened.

Truth For Life releases a Bible teaching message every day of the year that is distributed to a worldwide audience though radio, truthforlife.org, the free Truth For Life mobile app, subscription television, and selected voice command products. The entire teaching archive from Truth For Life can be accessed freely online and purchased at cost, with no mark up on CD, DVD, or USB.

Truth For Life's program production, radio distribution, and digital distribution capabilities bring Bible teaching to people around the world, every day of the year in a wide variety of formats. Digital access to the entire archive of teaching is available for free so that there is no cost barrier limiting people from learning more about the Word of God.

Hundreds of letters and email come in to Truth For Life each month telling of how God has worked in the lives of listeners around the world in a life-saving way through the teaching. Letters confirm that God is using the teaching to convert unbelievers, establish believers, and strengthen local churches. Truth For Life has a set of internal KPI's that are monitored regularly.

Truth For Life has expanded the listening platforms through which people can hear Truth For Life, including services like AudioNow, AmazonFire and ROKU T.V, and Amazon's Alexa products. The ministry is looking to expand teaching content to include more video and written content. Truth For Life continually looks for opportunities that align with the ministry's mission to expand both content and methods for distributing the teaching.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
