Bible Faith Lutheran Ministries to India
For more than 40 years Bible Faith Lutheran Ministries to India, (BFLMI) has been a 501(c)(3) charitable organization participating in the work God is doing in India. Two very clear longstanding core missions include the Moriah School and Children’s Home and the Bible Faith Lutheran Church of India. A new mission is the translation project of the Lutheran Study Bible.
Bible Faith Lutheran Churches and Seminary
BFLC Seminary offers pre-seminary, seminary, and continuing pastoral education for pastors and gospel workers to be grounded in God’s Word and confessional Lutheran doctrine. Lutheran seminary professors and pastors from the USA travel to India to present an annual symposium for Telugu-speaking pastors.
India Bible Study
The Lutheran Study Bible Translation Project is an initiative of BFLMI, an organization seeking to spread The Gospel of Jesus Christ to the people of India. The Holy Bible has been translated into the major languages of India, but many Bible readers will understand more clearly what they are reading if they can consult study notes like those contained in The Lutheran Study Bible.
In 2018 BFLMI initiated a new project of enormous magnitude: translating The Lutheran Study Bible notes into 15 major languages spoken in different regions of India.
The Moriah Children’s Home, established in 1984, provides a safe, loving, home where children from disadvantaged backgrounds (especially those who have lost at least one
parent) can grow and prosper while receiving an education at the Moriah School that will change the trajectory of their lives.
Moriah School, established in 1999, provides educational services to over 250 underserved children from Pre-Kindergarten to 10 th grade. Often the students are the first from their families to attend school. The Word of God continues to be shared with all students. Parents value the high-quality education for their children that would not be possible for them to access in costly schools.
US volunteers have established ongoing special initiatives that help expand learning opportunities in Early Childhood Education, teaching English, Science, Technology, Math, dance, and art. Both in person and online curriculum and instruction for teachers and students is bringing new and innovative education to Moriah School. More volunteers are needed to continue the expansion of these learning opportunities for children.
Many of the children who were educated at the school have successfully continued their education and become businessmen, pastors, engineers, and doctors.
