MBS Encourages BGEA’s My Hope

| January 21, 2016

My-Hope-PrayMaryland Bible Society wants to encourage our readers and donors to be aware of the opportunities offered by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

BGEA’s national initiative, My Hope, provides you with the opportunity and tools to promote and equip your local churches to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ in a very personal way.

The BGEA has produced and made available to churches, groups and communities evangelistic resources free of charge.  They offer a message of hope through films such as “Heaven”, The Cross” and the newest release, “The Value of a Soul”. The films include powerful Gospel presentations alongside stories of transformation.

The personal touch of the program is finding success.  To be prepared, BGEA is also providing discipleship materials as churches and individuals engaged with new believers.

Foremost above all is beginning your involvement with prayer.  It is of first importance that the work begin by praying specifically for people who need the hope found in a relationship with Jesus Christ.

My Hope began in Central America in 2002 and has since been implemented around the world, effecting a total of 60 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, the Americans and the Middle East.  305 Churches and 4 million homes have participated and over 10 million salvations and rededication decisions for Jesus Christ have been recorded.

About the Author ()

For over 200 years, the mission of the Maryland Bible Society (MBS) has been to see that every individual has an opportunity to own a Bible regardless of their native language or financial situation. Here in Maryland this mission has been mostly fulfilled. We now are turning our emphasis to encouraging and helping people read, understand and live out the truths and principles God has given us through His Holy Scriptures. As a non-denominational ministry, MBS is uniquely positioned to offer God’s Word without note or comment to Christians from all denominational backgrounds. This position allows us to work with all local Christian churches, serving and assisting them as they follow God’s lead. MBS has and will continue to establish and build partnerships that promote the distribution of the Bible, supply related sources and provide educational opportunities. Our vision is to ignite fresh passion for God’s Word to be lived out in the daily lives of people in Maryland and the world beyond. God’s Word contains truths that speak to all of the important areas of our lives: family, marriage, work, friendships, finances and parenting. It serves as the ‘road map’ for the often-overwhelming experience of life. It is a comfort, an encouragement, a teacher. It is convicting, edifying and inspiring. The Bible reveals our purpose in life. The Creator of the Universe has given us His Word to guide and direct us as we serve Him and live in the world.

As we embark on this renewed vision, our desire is to impact lives. As God leads us on this great adventure, we invite you to partner with us. Lives will be transformed as the Holy Spirit works through the Scriptures, resources and opportunities provided by MBS. Join us as we ignite fresh passion for God’s Word among individuals, ministries, local Churches, and businesses.
