Since its beginning, God has kept BibleStudy.org going in spite of several trials. One of these trials was a protracted attack on it popularity that lasted for three years.
The Bible Study site attracted 9.36 million actual visitors in 2015, which is 62% above 2014. Site materials were viewed 16.7 million times total, 60% above the previous year. This places the site, per the ranking service called Alexa, among the busiest on the entire Internet.
This year, 2016, the site set a new record by attracting its one-millionth visitor on February 4, the earliest in its history! The two-million visitor mark for the year was reached March 8 and three-million visitors for the year was reached on April 7. Our goal is to reach a new million visitor mark each month for the rest of the year.
Part of the success of the site can be attributed to overwhelming popularity of its Personal Answers to Bible Questions service. Started in late 2002, the service has handled close to 16,000 Emails from the public containing a wide variety of inquiries about the Bible.
This service is made possible by the Email Evangelists, a group of hard-working volunteers who average more than 30 years of experience as Christians. The current team of evangelists includes Rick / Eileen Beltz, Al / Debra Murrey, Eric Snow, Rosemary Stogner, Les Turvey and Clay Willis. Their tireless labor in helping to spread the gospel is one of the greatest undeserved blessings the site has ever received.
Additionally, the site's fulltime Social Media Manager, Nanci, has been an incredible asset in managing the site's FIVE social media outlets and further increasing its popularity.
BibleStudy.org is a wholly independent Web site outreach that is not owned, operated, sponsored or controlled in any way whatsoever by any church, group or religious denomination. Although some believe otherwise, we are not Catholics, Protestants, Jews, Seventh-Day Adventists, Mormons, Jehovah Witnesses, etc. Site content is almost entirely created by the site Webmaster or one of site's volunteers. It therefore does not represent the views of ANY church denomination. Although the site uses the Holy Bible in Its Original Order - A Faithful Version for many of its scriptural quotes (because of its accurate translation), we also use the KJV, NKJV, NIV and others where appropriate.
This site offers a plethora of study materials at three levels of understanding: Beginner for those just starting to study God's word, Basic for those who have some study experience and In Depth articles for those wishing to delve into the details of doctrine. We also offer a growing bible library of reference books, maps, timelines, charts, pictures, and other tools that will help you deepen your understanding of God's word.
Since late 2002, the site has also offered Personalized Answers to Bible questions that are submitted to BibleStudy.org. This special and unique service is staffed by a team of mature Christian volunteers who average more than 25 years as a believer. Known collectively as the Email Evangelists, these hard-working folks have handled 15,000 Emails since the service started!
We're often asked . . .
We are often asked what is our doctrinal statement or our statement of beliefs. Since we are independent and unaffiliated with any denomination or church group, we do not have an "official" beliefs statement. However, for those wishing to review some of the basic teachings the site supports, please visit our article on the Basic Teachings of the Bible.
BibleStudy.org also does not provide referrals to counsellors, ordained ministers, churches, fellowships and so on.
