Adopt a Church Program

The Adopt a Church Program (AACP) is an initiative that strives to put the focus on the importance of discipleship. It began its first cycle or round of Training sessions and Bible distributions in 2018. Thousands of Bibles have been distributed and hundreds of discipleship materials have been used to equip leaders that come from different churches and parishes.

The unfortunate reality is that there are many struggling congregations that cannot afford their own Scripture materials. As a result, growing their ministries becomes difficult when there is no solid foundation of discipleship. The AACP addresses this concern by connecting these churches and parishes in need to gracious and open-handed donors. These donors may be individuals, other churches and parishes, or organizations.

It’s amazing how the AACP presents all of us with the opportunity to take part in growing God’s Kingdom.

Our Father tells us to go and make disciples.

“Go, then, to all peoples everywhere and make them my disciples: baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and teach them to obey everything I have commanded you. And I will be with you always, to the end of the age.”

(Matthew 28:19-20, Good News Translation)

The question now is: how will you respond?

I am a Bible Ambassador because I believe that the Bible can help people a lot. And knowing the Bible, people come in touch with the Lord Jesus Christ.

“I praise and thank our Almighty God that, through PBS, I now own a Poimen version of MBB (Magandang Balita Biblia) in the national language of the Philippines – Tagalog.
Knowing Matthew 10:32-33, I read and study the Bible so that I will not be dismayed when the Lord Jesus Christ comes. Life is too short compared with the promise of eternal life in God’s Kingdom.”

Jorge BianesLocal Church Elder at LJOR Unified Commonwealth

I think this is very helpful to every readers. The word of the Lord are the food of our soul which we always need every minute of our life. I dont often read the Bible but everytime i open it, God was always like in front of me and speaking as what is something i'm just needing to hear. He speaks to me and i can feel it. A million thanks to You my Lord.
