The original multilingual searchable Bible website, Bible Gateway was started in 1993 by Nick Hengeveld, a student at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, MI, who had a visionary passion to make the Bible digitally accessible to everyone through the very new technology at the time called the Internet.
In 1995 Nick became the first webmaster of Gospelcom.net, now Gospel.com. He brought Bible Gateway with him, and since then, the service has been the daily favorite online resource for hundreds of millions of people around the world. In 2008 Bible Gateway became a division of Zondervan, and is, today, a member of HarperCollins Christian Publishing. We continue to add new translations, languages, and powerful functionality to Bible Gateway to help you conveniently engage the Bible and make it an integral part of your everyday life.
