Translation work is critical to the Bible mission movement and there is an urgent need to do more.

“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head.
If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.” – Nelson Mandela

Being able to read the Word of God in one’s heart language not only helps a people group understand it better but helps the people themselves relate to Him as their personal God.

The aim of The Bible Society of Singapore is to:

1. Promote awareness of the key role and need for Bible translation in mission.

2. Educate the Christian community about the original Bible language and heart language of the mission field.

3. Raise funds to resource Bible Translators and Translation projects.

4. Support the training of Bible Translators.

The Bible Society of Singapore is working in partnership with our sister societies and theological institutions around the world, to train up and support the on-going task of making the Word of God available to all people.

Read about the on-going projects that have a potential to impact 500 million lives. The United Bible Societies have under-taken the largest number of Bible translation projects.
