About us

Working in over 200 countries, our Bible Society is a charity on a global mission to bring the Bible to life for every man, woman and child. We believe that when people engage with the Bible, lives can change – for good. We’re translating and distributing Bibles around the world so people can experience the Bible in their heart language, especially in China, Middle East and Southern Africa. We are a Christian organisation dedicated to delivering God’s Word within New Zealand and around the world and committed to fulfilling our vision of seeing the Bible distributed and engaged with so that lives are transformed. We aim to serve the whole Christian community by working closely with churches and the community to serve all denominations. Bible Society was established in New Zealand in 1846 and is a member of the United Bible Societies (UBS), a fellowship of 146 Bible Societies throughout the world which co-operate to make the Word of God available to people everywhere in a language they can understand and at a price they can afford. We are a donor supported non-profit society who receive no Government funding and depend on the prayers and financial support of Christian individuals and churches.
