CPN_2011_Jpeg-41Entering 2013, we are mindful of what God has done for us and thanking Him for the privilege of participating in His unfolding plan of redemption. For over 2 centuries MBS has endeavored to make God’s Word available to every person who desires to read the story of God’s love and grace – the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

One of the necessary developments in the world of Bible engagement has been the need for renewed discussions relating to the biblical theology of work. Considering the average worker will spend between 80 and 100 thousand hours working, it goes without saying those hours count for what matters most – a prominent and clear testimony to the greatness of God, the original worker. To that end, MBS has partnered with several local organizations to present and teach the Biblical model for workplace testimony. One example of this renewed emphasis took place in November at the highly regarded Christian Professional Network Conference where we offered a focused seminar on Christian Character for a Great Business. The response was extremely positive, with many of the participants seeking ongoing training and resources.

We have expanded our partnership with Christian Business Men’s Connection and are making plans for “By The Book” seminars with topics such as purpose, stewardship and leadership. Reading through our newsletter you will see how our mission is unfolding. It is an exciting time to be part of the Bible movement – igniting fresh passion for God’s Word lived out! Come join us!

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.
