Word Alive - Excellence in Service Everyday

Word Alive began in 1987 by distributing books from the basement of a home in Niverville, Manitoba, Canada. The past 30+ years have been a tremendous journey of learning, growing, and changing to support our customers. Like many other ventures, ours was realized in response to a problem. In 1987, it was difficult to find important inspirational resources so we set out to be part of the solution. The need for these resources continues, and as a result, today we serve some of the fastest growing segments of the Christian market.

Word Alive has grown every year since its inception, and our mandate in the coming years is to honour our customers, our suppliers, and our coworkers by providing the highest quality service and products that they need. This website is always being updated to inform you of the thousands of quality resources we carry and we hope you’ll find it helpful as you continue to serve your customers’ needs.

Word Alive offers the best overall discounts, service, and programs in the industry, with no hoops to jump through and no hidden fees.

As a Christian bookstore, you are an integral part of fulfilling this mission. We are continually striving to serve you better. We are in touch with your needs and are constantly improving and updating our services to meet these needs even more effectively.

We are committed to bringing you elite quality in all that we do. It is our desire to help you where you are today and to be by your side where you want to be tomorrow. We want you to have the best we can offer every day.
