Ligonier Ministries, like Fiel Ministries, is a teaching ministry founded by R.C. Sproul that focuses on helping Christians, especially church leaders, know what they believe, why they believe it, how to live it, and how to share it. Both Ligonier and Fiel are organizations built around a deep confidence in Scripture, and a recognition of the power of the written word. Books stand as powerful tools in the transformation of hearts, and this is true today even as it was 500 years ago in the reform of Christendom. Our partnership with Ligonier Ministries has allowed for us launch multiple projects for the edification of the church and the spread of the gospel in the Portuguese-speaking world.
1. We have translated teachings and sermons of R.C. Sproul and offer them through DVD and online formats.
2. Many of R.C. Sproul's books from Reformation Trust Publishing have been translated into Portuguese, including books from the Crucial Questions series and The Truth of the Cross.
3. 140,000 copies of "Can I Have Joy in My Life?" and "God is Holy and We are Not" were sponsored for distribution as a part of Fiel Ministries' FIFA World Cup Outreach, Vidas em Jogo. 60 churches across Brazil were given these books to distribute to Brazilians and internationals during the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
4. Nearly a million copies of "The Race of Faith" by Dr. R.C. Sproul were distributed by staff and volunteers all across Rio de Janeiro during the 2016 Olympic Games. This was a seminal moment in the history of Brazil, and a remarkable example of the local church mobilizing to spread the gospel to the world around. People of all cultures and nationalities received the news of the gospel, and the response was remarkable.
