The Bible Society in Cambodia is a national office of the United Bible Societies (UBS), the largest and oldest interdenominational Christian organization. Begun in 1804, the Bible Society movement is now serving in more than 200 countries and territories around the world.
Like all other national Bible Societies all over the world, the Bible Society in Cambodia has as its motivation the fulfillment of the Great Commission (MATTHEW 28:18-20), through Scripture distribution.
The Bible Society in Cambodia recognizes Churches as the primary agents of God's mission in the world. Therefore, the Bible Society serves the local churches and their partner organizations as a resource, not usurping their primary mission.
The Bible Society affirms that the Holy Scriptures belong to all churches, recognizing that doctrinal interpretation of the Scriptures belongs to them.
The Bible Society is an expression of the fellowship of God's people sharing their resources. These include, for example, spiritual gifts, knowledge, money, time, talents, and technology.
Although the Bible Society uses sound business principles in order to achieve maximum effectiveness and efficiency in its service, the ultimate goal of its activities is however the fulfillment of the Great Commission.
The Bible Society is an expression of the fellowship of God's people from different Church traditions and background working together towards the same objective: bringing the Word of hope and salvation to the Cambodian people.
In order to meet the needs of Christian communities in Cambodia, the BSC Board of Directors and the Advisory Committee are composed of Christian representatives from almost all Church traditions: Evangelical, Methodist, Presbyterian, Anglican, Assemblies of God, Baptist, Church of Christ, Seventh Day Adventist, Roman Catholic, as well as parachurch organizations.
Our dedicate staff members also come from different Church backgrounds working together to serve the Kingdom of God through publishing, translation, distribution and different Scripture engagement programs.
