About Keep Believing Ministries

Our Seven Major Activities

1. Book Depot

We have established a Book Depot in Moline, IL for the free distribution of An Anchor for the Soul. This little "gospel book" shares the hope of Heaven in an easy-read format and is available in both English and Spanish. Since 2000 we have donated over 800,000 copies for use in:

  • Prison Ministry
  • Military Ministry
  • Disaster Relief
  • Crisis Pregnancy Centers
  • Evangelistic Outreach

2. Keep Believing Website

The website includes a blog, links to a wide variety of Christian resources, over 900 sermons available for free downloads, several hundred shorter articles, books, video FAQs, podcasts, and a free weekly sermon that goes by email to over 14,000 people.

3. China Resource Library

Through our China Translation and Website Teams, we maintain the China Resource Library with more than 200 sermons translated into Mandarin to provide sound biblical teaching for the church in China. Click here to visit the China Resource Library.

4. Bible Teaching Ministry

We teach the Bible in churches, conferences, and at Bible institutes in the U.S. and around the world.

5. Radio

We broadcast twice weekly on American Family Radio and once per month on Moody Radio with Chris Fabry Live.

6. Social Media

We connect with people via Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

7. Books

We carry all of Dr. Pritchard's books, some in print versions, some as ebooks, and some in both formats. KBM also owns the publishing rights to all of them. We also carry five booklets by Dr. Pritchard, including: How Can I Be Filled with the Holy Spirit?; If I Believe, Why Do I Doubt?; When the Foundations are Destroyed; How to Love Your Enemies and Why is Life So Hard?

“Equipping and encouraging people
to keep believing in Jesus”

“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing,
so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
(Romans 15:13)

We are called to spread hope in a world that lives without it. The phrase “keep believing” suggests at least three important parts of our calling:

1) What we believe determines who we are and what we do.
2) In Jesus Christ there is something worth believing eternally.
3) We are called to keep believing in Jesus and to encourage others to do the same.

We serve local churches and the body of Christ worldwide by providing free biblical resources to equip pastors, train the next generation, win the lost, and encourage Christians to keep believing in Jesus.

We minister to church leaders, Christians in the marketplace, students, the hurting, new believers, and those seeking to know God.

Our core values

1. Using all means possible
2. Giving away our resources
3. Serving the global church
3. Praying as we go
4. Doing all things with financial integrity
6. Equipping others to get the job done
7. Encouraging believers everywhere we go
