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, the three millionth visitor mark was achieved on April 7, and the site attracted its four millionth guest on May 13. The five million visitor mark was achieved on June 19. 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 more than 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, Al / Debra, Eric, Rosemary, Les and Clay. 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 (Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram and Pinterest) 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. We are not Catholics, Protestants, Jews, Seventh-Day Adventists, Mormons, Jehovah Witnesses, and so on. We are Christians doing our best to serve the great God who made all things.
Please also note that "Barnabas Ministries," which is the name of the effort that started BibleStudy.org, has no relationship whatsoever with any of the many other outreaches or churches who may also use this designation for their efforts.
The vast majority of site content is researched and written by the site's Webmaster. Site content does not represent or promote the views of any single fellowship, church, church denomination or church leader - either past or present. Although the site uses the Holy Bible in Its Original Order - A Faithful Version for many of its scriptural quotes (due to its accurate translation of the Hebrew and Greek in which scripture was written), 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.
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.
