Articles of Faith

Silent Word Ministries is a missionary ministry and mission board dedicated to taking the Gospel to the deaf world  and then teaching in accordance with the Great Commission. We publish and print a ten-year Sunday School program, a Deaf Bible Institute program, manuals to aid deaf workers, books, literature, tracts, and a bi-monthly newspaper. Our teachings are in accordance with Baptist doctrines. Bible verses are from the King James Version.

Financially, we are an approved, nonprofit, tax exempt 501(c)3 organization, independent from any organization or society. We are supported by churches and friends who share our burden to reach the deaf world for Christ. Our policy is to remain debt free and build only as the Lord provides. Because of your gifts and support, many deaf people will hear in Heaven.
