A gathering of leaders from around the Alliance in July 2019

The Wycliffe Global Al­liance is a com­mu­nity of more than 100 di­verse or­ga­ni­sa­tions and networks serv­ing to­gether in Bible trans­la­tion move­ments around the world.

Alliance organisations share a common commitment: all people should have access to God’s Word in their preferred languages and formats. Hun­dreds of mil­lions of peo­ple still do not have God’s Word in the lan­guage they un­der­stand best. The Al­liance’s vi­sion is to see in­di­vid­u­als, com­mu­ni­ties and na­tions trans­formed through God’s love and Word ex­pressed in their lan­guages and cultures.

The Alliance serves as a part of the worldwide church and the global mission community. It seeks to glorify God through participation in his mission of redemption, reconciliation and restoration.

Multicultural by nature, the Alliance continues to grow in its intercultural attitudes and behavior.

Alliance organisations commit to:

  • Serve together
  • Demonstrate the unity and diversity of the Body of Christ
  • Exemplify relationships that demonstrate love and respect.

Words commonly used to describe the Alliance include:

  • Interconnected
  • Inclusive
  • Adaptable
  • Respectful
  • Diverse
  • Organic
  • Biblically and missiologically grounded
  • Relational

Only in God’s strength and with his guidance is any of this is possible.
