"Proclaiming the Living Word to nations that have not heard
through preaching, teaching and literature in local languages."

 Faith-building literature in 22 languages

Our mandate comes from Jesus’ words:

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
– Matthew 28:19-20

“Go into all the world and preach the gospel to the whole creation.”
– Mark 16:15

In 1989, as the Apostle Paul saw a vision of a man from Macedonia calling for help, Rev. Kenneth E. Hagin saw in a vision a man from India saying, “I am from Northern India. There is a work or move of God that He wants to do in Northern India, but Satan hinders greatly. We need help.”

Since that time, a seed was planted in my heart to reach out to the precious people of India with the life-changing Gospel of Jesus.

At one billion people, India is the world’s second-most populous nation--
but only 3% of the total population are born-again Christians.

But this fact is changing as literally tens of thousands are coming to Christ. God is visiting hungry hearts of the people of India with healings and miracles confirming His Word.

The God-given assignment of LWI is to proclaim the message of faith in God and the fullness of His Spirit through preaching, teaching and literature in local languages.

To the glory of God, over 2.2 million copies of faith-building books in 22 languages including Braille for the blind, have been translated and published to date. LWI presently has 4 offices in India: Nagpur, Calcutta, Chennai (Madras) and Dimapur, Nagaland.
