Most of us have the privilege of reading and understanding the Bible in our heart language, and some of us in several languages! However, several communities have yet to receive the Bible in their languages! NLCI started with technical service and then moved to the forefront of Bible Translation; the journey of NLCI is exciting. In the last 35 years, God used NLCI to complete 25 New Testaments in previously unwritten languages. This all started with the dedicated service of a Norwegian couple who decided to do something meaningful in their retired life. The vision outlived their lives and now impacting around seven crores of people in 13 states of India through around 200 NLCI staff.

NLCI Faith Statement
We Believe

- the Holy Bible, as originally given, to be the only inspired infallible and authoritative word of God

- that there is only one God, eternally existent in three person: Father, Son and Holy Spirit

- in the Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His Sinless Life, in His Miracles. In His Vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection to the right hand of the Father, in His mediatorial work, and His personal return in power and glory

- in the universal sinfulness and guilt of all mankind since the fall, rendering man subject to God’s wrath and condemnation

- that for the salvation of lost and sinful man regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential

- in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life

- in the bodily resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved, unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost, unto judgment

- in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, who comprise the Church, which is His Body
