Welcome to Wycliffe Caribbean!
Wycliffe Caribbean is part of the Wycliffe Bible Translators
International family of organisations. We believe the worldwide
Christian Church is responsible to evangelise the world and to
disciple the nations. Wycliffe, therefore, exists to assist the
Church in this task.
This site focuses on how Caribbean
people and churches can be involved in the worldwide task of
Bible translation. It also provides links to the websites of
other Wycliffe organisations around the world.

Bible Translation Status for the World's Languages
Over 611 New Testaments have been produced with the help of
Wycliffe Bible Translators. Wycliffe members are currently
helping to translate the Bible into the languages of an
additional 1,376 people groups. We also work closely with these
people groups to encourage literacy, so that the Bible, once
translated, does not remain a closed book.
Languages and Bible Translation Status
Many of the
living languages of the Caribbean already have either the full
Bible or at least the New Testament. Others have Bible
translation projects in progress. The 500th New Testament
produced with the help of Wycliffe translators was for Javanese

cross-cultural world missions. We share and fully embrace the
charge, "Moving from mission field to mission force,"the
of the Caribbean Church, made in May 2000 by the Evangelical
Association of the Caribbean (EAC).
