Our Mission

The Bible Society exists is to equip churches to share God’s Word.

Our Vision

We believe the Bible is for everyone so we are working towards the day when everyone can access the Bible in the language and medium of their choice.

What motivates us is our belief that the Bible is for Everyone.

Our Values

We value churches as the primary agents of God’s mission in the world

We value resources that help people to engage with the Word of God

We value all the different media that enable us to distribute the Bible

We value affordability of Scriptures for everyone

Our Foundational Beliefs

The Bible Society movement has as its motivation the fulfilment of the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20)

Bible Societies understand their task as participation in the mission of God −Father, Son and Holy Spirit −as witnessed in the Holy Scriptures

Bible Societies provide resources to equip churches and their partner organisations; we do not usurp the mission of churches

Bible Societies affirm that the Holy Scriptures belong to all churches, recognising that doctrinal interpretation of the Scriptures belongs to them

Bible Societies believe that the Bible is for all people, in every living language, therefore they see Bible translation as one of their key activities

Bible Societies recognise that the Bible has direct relevance in addressing the world’s problems and in reaching out to people’s needs in word and deed, following in the footsteps of Jesus.

What makes us unique

We are the integrated Bible agency – we translate, publish and distribute Bibles, we help people understand its message and we help to ensure the continuing credibility of the Bible in society

We have unprecedented global reach – we meet people’s needs for Holy Scriptures in more than 200 countries and territories

 We are inter-confessional – we work with all Christian churches

 We are developing leading technology – we apply the best technological solutions in order to make the Bible’s message available and accessible to everyone

 

…I heard every creature in heaven, on earth, in the world below, and in the seas – all living beings in the universe – and they were singing: “To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb, be praise and honour, glory and might, forever and ever!”

Revelation 5:13:
