2017-2021 STRATEGIC DIRECTION

Scripture Engagement & Advocacy

Providing avenues to encounter God in His Word

Our flagship programs serve as anchors for God’s Word to take root in the hearts of people.  We pray for the genuine transformation of our nation as more individuals, families, and communities encounter God through the Bible.

Distribution

Expanding the reach of God’s Word through distribution efforts

Our teams and ministry partners are driving forces for Scripture offerings to become accessible and readily available to people everywhere.  We remain committed to effectively and meaningfully distribute the Bible in formats that everyone can appreciate and find relevant, and to make the Bible available in prices that all can afford.

Translation

Breaking the language barrier through translation into the heart language

God used history and the lives of people to ensure that His Word was communicated, preserved, and faithfully passed down through generations.  Our Bible translation teams strive to make the God’s Word available in languages that people will understand, and in translations that are faithful to the original biblical languages.

Publishing

Ensuring Scripture quality and affordable Scripture offerings

Armed with a number of competent and committed copyeditors, proofreaders, typesetters, layout artists, creative cover designers, and product developers, we endeavor to create Scripture offerings of the highest quality.  Our own printing facility, established in 2001 under the leadership of Dr. Medarlo B. Rivera, allowed us to be more hands-on in the printing process.

Mission Sustainabaility

Maintaining sustainable partnerships, a well-equipped workforce, and dynamic systems for the expansion of God’s Kingdom

The process of translating, publishing, distributing, and promoting the Scriptures presents us with unique challenges. We make every effort to seek partnerships with other individuals, churches, and organizations, to develop and engage our workforce, and to improve our systems and processes to accomplish our mission of making the Bible known.

“It is a blessing to be able to support our local churches in need of Bibles and Bible study programs. It is our hope that they not only grow in terms of membership but also have the heart to extend spiritual help to others, just like how they have received help.”

It has well-equipped leaders who facilitate trainings and workshops.

Miriam del RosarioExecutive director at The Birthright Educators Foundation

“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.
