With the independence of Kenya in 1963, Churches and Kenyans in general felt the need to take the responsibility of their own Bible Society. In response to this an advisory Council was formed to help the Executive Secretary lay the ground work for an autonomous Bible Society. In 1970 the Bible Society of Kenya was registered under the Societies Act.
The goal of Bible Society Kenya is the same one that Bible Societies around the world have been pursuing for some 200 years: to translate, publish, distribute and engage people with the Bible.
Bible Society of Kenya is a non-Sectarian, non-denominational organization that serves all Christian Churches, Church organizations and individuals.
To share the Good News of Jesus Christ by translating, producing, distributing and encouraging use of the Holy Scriptures.
A society of choice for all Scripture needs.
To make available and promote use of Scriptures for holistic transformation of peoples’ lives.
- Commitment to Holy Scriptures
- Faith comes by hearing
- Youth and children outreach
- Braille scriptures
- Scholarly Scriptures
- Church relations
- Marginalized communities outreach
Bible Society of Kenya is founded on the belief that when the Bible speaks to people’s hearts and minds, the Spirit of God transforms their lives for their own good, the good of their communities and of society at large.
Our desire is to see all people everywhere encounter God and his Son Jesus Christ through the Bible, in a language in which they think and feel, in formats that enhance understanding and are affordable. This encounter with the message of unconditional love in Jesus Christ lightens people’s hearts, and changes the way they live.
We are part of a global family
The Bible Society of Kenya is a full member of the United Bible Societies. Since 1946 Bible Societies have worked together, seeking to serve Bible needs worldwide. The Bible Societies are an expression of the fellowship of God’s people sharing their resources. These include, for example, spiritual gifts, knowledge, money, time, talents and technology.
