EMMAUS is an International Bible Correspondence School, non – denominational in outreach and founded for the purpose of encouraging the systematic study of the Word of God and helping Christians to be equipped for service for the Lord.
From small beginnings in 1942 the work has grown to become the largest, Bible-based Correspondence School in the world. Missionaries and Nationals in many lands appreciate the value of the home study method of Bible instruction and have made Emmaus Courses a vital part of their evangelistic and Bible Teaching Ministries. Today, through the Emmaus correspondence ministry, the Word of God is finding its way past geopolitical barriers and into some of the world’s most troubled areas.
Courses are being used to reach the un-reached and teach the un-taught. Currently, people in 110 countries are studying Emmaus courses, available in 125 languages and distributed from more than 1200 Emmaus Bible Centres. About twenty million courses have been distributed around the world.
The work was introduced into the UK in 1951 by Harold Catlow and since that date over one million courses have been distributed.
