The Bangladesh Bible Society (BBS), like other Bible Societies around the world, serves the local church by translating, publishing, and distributing the Bible in their respective languages, with the goal of transforming the nation through the WORD. The objective of the Bangladesh Bible Society is to make the Bible available to anyone who wants it in languages they can understand and at prices they can afford. Since its establishment in 1953, BBS has been working towards achieving its mission and working diligently and faithfully in cooperation with the church in Bangladesh.
