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

"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

What we do

We distribute English Standard Version (ESV) Bibles and New Testaments in New Zealand, to:

  • High Schools (year 9), special education, tertiary and university students
  • Hospitals and rest homes
  • Prisons
  • Motels and hotels
  • Professional waiting rooms, e.g. Doctors, Dentists and Lawyer offices
