“And this gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.” Matthew 24:14 (ESV)
The Digital Bible Society produces and distributes digital Bibles and Christian resources for the purposes of discipleship, evangelism and church planting. In partnership with the Body of Christ, it is our goal to make these resources accessible in every language and to every people group in the world.
To accomplish this task, we strive to produce content of the highest quality using a wide range of digital media and delivery systems in order to reach the largest possible audience. Through partnerships with Bible publishers and content creators, the Digital Bible Society provides these resources free of charge to churches, mission agencies, church planters, teachers, leaders and disciple-makers in the mother tongue of their region.
We are aiming toward a day when every person will enjoy full and immediate access to Bibles and Christian resources in every language of the world – especially their own heart language.
The Digital Bible Society consists of Christian believers throughout the world representing a wide range of backgrounds, denominations, cultures and languages that have united around the cause of ensuring that every person in every nation has the ability to read, hear and understand God’s Word in their native tongue.
We exist for the Bible The Holy Scriptures are the centerpiece of every project we engage in and our sole aim is the free distribution and unfettered access to the Holy Bible in digital format.
We prioritize the Biblically Impoverished While DBS embraces the value of covering the world with Scripture, nations considered closed or persecuted receive first priority in our work and in our hearts.
We aim to Equipping Christ’s Church Because of the significant worldwide demand and need for Christian resources, DBS has chosen to include as much quality content as possible in its libraries. Trusted, qualified, seasoned project leaders are tasked with identifying the best available biblical content to most appropriately serve the specific needs of their assigned cultures and regions.
We are people of Prayer We believe that we are called and privileged to walk in close relationship to God and that our work can only be accomplished through prayer and obedience to the leading of the Holy Spirit.
We are Servants to the Body of Christ We believe that God has called us to serve the Body of Christ by fulfilling Christ’s commission of proclaiming – through the publishing and distribution of – the Gospel in every language. (Matthew 24:14 & Mark 13:10)
We strive to preserving Unity DBS chooses to remain non-partisan, non-political, and inter-denominational. Policies and principles for any given project are adopted that best suit the unique needs of the targeted people group. While we deliberately seek to avoid areas of historic division within the Church, we embrace the ideals of Evangelical Christianity and submit to the standards and principles of the Lausanne Covenant for World Evangelism.
We work through Partnerships Content entrusted to DBS for digital distribution remains under the sole ownership of the contributor, including any format alteration or digital improvements made by DBS or any of its partners. Only content granted with full permission from the controlling organization is included in our libraries, and the Society does not promote one organization’s content over another's. All content bears the name and copyright information of the contributing organization unless said organization specifies otherwise, and contributors retain the option to have their content excluded from future distributions.
We seek to be Good Stewards Recognizing that digital content is freely given through the generosity of our contributors, DBS neither profits from nor sustains its organization through the sale of content entrusted to its care. That being said, the Society reserves the right to charge a reasonable amount to cover costs associated with media production and delivery.
