VLB: VISUALLY LINKED BIBLE

ENGAGING. IMMERSIVE. EXPERIENCES.

Using the latest technology, we help people actively engage with the Bible through incredibly powerful immersive experiences, starting with virtual reality (VR) ... and then leading the way wherever technology heads in the future.

VLB is a non-profit organization championing cutting-edge innovations that bring fresh visual Bible content to life. We believe the Bible to be the inspired, authentic, and authoritative Word of God.

Our desire is to expand the boundaries for how people can explore and experience the Bible as it comes alive visually for our generation and the next.
