Open Church is a global Church library for all cultures.
If the Lord wills, our long-term goals include:
(1) Acquire, distribute, and translate high quality free resources and help Christians create new resources for their culture by their culture. This includes eBooks, training materials, curriculum, artwork, videos, music, and software that are digitized public works, acquired copyrighted materials, or resources we help create. These resources will save the global Church millions of dollars, lead more people to Christ, and develop better disciples.
(2) Offer a digital Bible to allow users to access resources and Bible study tools related to specific passages of Scripture.
(3) Serve as an unaffiliated, safe place for Christian collaboration across global cultures and denominations. Let us learn from each other and share what we have. May we keep politics, territorialism, partiality, divisiveness, and selfish ambition far from ourselves.
Of course, this will take time. Currently, we are slowly building momentum by nurturing relationships with content creators and developing the infrastructure needed for growth.
