For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
The Trinitarian Bible Society was founded in London in 1831. The Society's primary aim is the distribution of faithful translations of the Holy Scriptures among all nations. To that end the Society is engaged in Bible Translation work in addition to the printing and distribution of existing translations. Today the Society's membership is comprised of Christians from many nations who share the desire of the Society's founding members.
The Society's work of distributing the Holy Scriptures is funded primarily by membership subscriptions, donations, legacies and the sale of its Bibles and other publications. The Society does not make any appeal for funds but looks to the Lord to provide all its needs and continues in complete dependence upon Almighty God; Father, Son and Holy Ghost; whose Word is so precious.
The following pages from the Society's London web site provide additional information regarding the Society's history and distinctive principles.
The Society is represented in Australia by its Australian Branch, Trinitarian Bible Society (Australia), which was incorporated in 1995 as a non-profit Australian company. The Australian Branch receives donations, legacies and membership subscriptions on behalf of the Society; manages promotion of the Society within Australia; maintains an Australian distribution centre for sale of the Society's English and Non-English Bibles and other publications; and operates initiatives for distribution of the Word of God within the region.
Please consult the following pages for further details of the activity of the Australian Branch.
In addition to the Australian Branch, the Society has branches in other parts of the world.
