Our Mission: Since Open the Bible was founded in 1999, our mission has been the same—to put the gospel within people’s grasp by delivering impactful Bible teaching through a broad array of modern media. The media will change in years to come, but the focus on the gospel will always remain. Our History: The ministry grew from a two-year journey of preaching and reading through the Bible, shared by the congregation of The Orchard Evangelical Free Church in 2000 and 2001. Colin Smith, Senior Pastor at The Orchard, served as the preaching pastor throughout these two intentional years of reading through Scripture. The journey led to the publication of a series of four books entitled Unlocking the Bible Story, followed by Ten Keys for Unlocking the Bible, Open the Bible in 30 Days, Ten Keys to Unlock the Christian Life, and The Ten Greatest Struggles of Your Life.
