We share the Bible.
Since 1809, Scottish Bible Society has sought, under God, to put the Bible into people’s hands and hearts. Our goal is to make the Bible available in every language, form, and at an affordable price, to enable genuine encounters with God.
In partnership with individuals, churches, and organisations across the globe, we distribute Bibles, New Testaments, and other Scripture-based materials in a range of media. Our volunteer network includes Action Groups, local Church Representatives, and speakers, all helping to spread the Word of God and finance the distribution of the Scriptures at home and overseas.
Our vision is to see individuals, communities, and cultures transformed as people encounter the God of the Bible. Our mission is to equip people in Scotland and around the world to share this Bible so that these encounters can take place.
We are witnesses to the Light.
At the start of 2022, thanks to the efforts of Bible Societies and other Bible translation agencies, the full Bible was available in 719 languages spoken by 5.8 billion people worldwide. Around 70% of these Bibles were translated by the United Bible Societies fellowship. This is wonderful news and there is much to be thankful for as we consider all that God has done.
However, the work of sharing the Bible with the world is not yet done. Across the world, one in five people are still waiting for a Bible in their own heart language. While everyday thousands of people are encountering God for the first time, millions more are yet to know of the hope and peace that is uniquely offered by the God of the Bible.
