Who we are

The Gideons International is an Association of Christian business and professional men and their wives, members of Evangelical or Protestant churches. Our single objective is to win people for Christ by personally sharing our faith and distributing God's Word around the world.
As born-again believers, we believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible, and true Word of God. We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as the eternal Son of God, we have received Him as Saviour, and endeavour to follow Him in our daily lives.

Why we do it

Gideon was a biblical character who was willing to do exactly what God wanted him to do, regardless of his own judgment as to the plans or results. Humility, faith, and obedience were his great elements of character. This is the standard that the Gideons is trying to establish in all its members, each man to be ready to do God's will at any time, at any place, and in any way that the Holy Spirit leads.
"So shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it." Isaiah 55:11 ESV
