Our Story

Our Heritage and Our Present

LifeWay is a non-profit organization committed to providing biblical solutions for you and your church. We support the mission of presenting the gospel of Jesus Christ to all people of all nations.

Dr Frost In 1891, with a desk, a small office and money borrowed from his wife, Dr. J.M. Frost stepped out in faith and began what would later become LifeWay Christian Resources. We opened our first retail bookstore in 1925 and now have more than 2,000 employees in over 180 stores serving 28 states.

Today, LifeWay is one of the world's largest providers of Christian products and services, many that can only be found in our stores or online at www.lifeway.com.

Our Mission

Passionate About Prayer

Each morning before the store opens, our employees gather for a time of devotion and prayer. We pray for you, our customers, for the community and that we will be a light for our Lord.

As God works through us...We will help people and churches by providing biblical solutions for life.

100 Mission Trips and Counting

To date, more than 1,000 volunteers have participated in more than 100 LifeWay employee led mission trips at home and to 38 countries around the world. As a result, we've seen God harvest more than 12,500 lives and start 270 churches.
