2020 named 'Year of the Bible' for worldwide evangelicals

Secretary General Bishop Efraim Tendero says he wants evangelicals across the world to read the Bible and reflect more, invest in the translation and publication of it and ensure people in all walks of life can engage with it.

  
Addressing the thousands gathered at the Jesus Global Youth Day in Manila, Philippines, he said: "Properly understood, the Bible points us to the Creator whose Word is true, righteous and endures forever.

"We will highlight the importance of the Bible as the enduring foundation for fostering unity, freedom, development and quality of life today and for the years to come."

The yearlong initiative will launch formally at the newly-built Museum of the Bible in Washington, DC in September and has the backing of ministries such as Wycliffe Bible Translators, YWAM, American Bible Society, and Call2All.

The WEA represents some 600 million evangelical Christians across the world with the intention to "advance the Good News of Jesus Christ and effect personal and community transformation for the glory of God".

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the UK is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of £8 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
