For almost twelve decades now, the Philippine Bible Society (PBS) continues to make God's Word known in the hope of sparking real change in the country. It continues to make available faithful translations of the Bible into languages people use and understand, in formats and media they appreciate and at prices they can afford. In light of the growing availability of free Scripture on the internet and the emerging plateau in the demand for printed Bibles, PBS, after much prayer and deliberation, decided to invest in the construction of a 14-storey ministry facility on its Gonzales property. The facility will feature an auditorium that can accommodate large gatherings, residential facilities, a restaurant, and several levels of parking spaces. The Bible Museum, which has a huge potential for revenue generation, will also find a new, more spacious home in this new facility. Following the simple groundbreaking ceremony held last June 9, 2016, construction is in full swing. However, we still need your support to sustain this project to its completion in 2019. We truly appreciate your generous gift that will enable us to continue our mission of making the Bible known!
Word Riders Philippines is a group of Big Bike enthusiasts with a heart to support the vision and mission of the Philippine Bible Society to place a Bible in every Filipino home. Thus, developed the slogan “Riding to help place a Bible in every Filipino home.”
This endeavor was inspired by the Bible Society of South Africa’s Word Riders that started in 2011. Since then, Riders travel yearly to different communities of South Africa to distribute Bibles among Grade 7 learners especially to those children who cannot afford to buy a Bible.
