About Philippine Bible Society

What is the Philippine Bible Society?

The Philippine Bible Society is a non-profit, non-stock and inter-confessional Christian organization that exists to provide people with Scriptures…

in the language they understand,

in formats they prefer,

and at prices they can afford.

PBS is an affiliate of the United Bible Societies, a society of more than 145 Bible Societies operating in 200 countries and territories worldwide. These Bible Societies assist in faithful translation of Scriptures as well as provide assistance to other national Bible Societies. The Bible Societies are often the only source of supply for people who could not otherwise afford the Scriptures, or who live in places far from commercial outlets.

What Scriptures does PBS produce?

The Philippine Bible Society strives to make God’s Word available to all audiences. Through PBS’ endeavors, the Holy Scriptures are now available in the eight major Philippine languages:

  • Bicol
  • Cebuano
  • Hiligaynon
  • Ilokano
  • Pampango
  • Pangasinan
  • Tagalog
  • Samarenyo

These translations are available both in Protestant and Catholic editions. There are also Scriptures formatted to suit serious Bible readers (Diglot Bibles and scholarly Bible editions), for young people (student Bibles), and children (Children’s Bible and Scripture comics). PBS likewise makes the Scriptures available for the visually impaired and other audiences.

    Hi! We’re not sure about the version but PBS is promoting the use of Magandang Balita Biblia (MBB) version to easily understand Bible concepts. You may find a Catholic Bible in MBB version in our bookstores. Blessings!

    Good Afternoon,

    I and my wife wanted to be members of the PBS and would like to personally go to Sta Mesa Bible House. We are from San Mateo Rizal. Is the Sta. Mesa office open this coming Saturday.

    Thank you.
