Bearing Precious Seed (BPS) is a means for the local church to have hands on involvement with Bible publishing for the world. This is accomplished by taking the printed page and collating it, folding the covers, putting the Scripture in the cover, stapling it, cutting the book and boxing them for the Field. This ministry is simple, rewarding and Biblical. Psalm 126:6 says, “He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.”
In Luke 8:11 Jesus taught, “The Seed is the Word of God”. Down through the ages there has been a line of Scribes and local churches who have stayed true to God’s Holy Word and to His commandment to make Christ known to all nations by “the Scriptures of the prophets” (Romans 16:26). The apostle Paul wrote in Colossians 4:16, "And when this epistle is read among you, cause that it be read also in the church." He also wrote in Thessalonians 5:27, "I charge you by the Lord that this epistle be read unto all the holy brethren." Under Moses’ law only kings and priests were both permitted and commanded to make copies of the Word of God. In the New Testament, the local Churches were to be the publishers of the Word of God, we are after all in the "Church Age." God still wants the Church to publish His Word. It is God's commandment that we make Christ known to the world by the Scriptures, for the obedience of the faith (Romans 16:26).
We believe that our local church BPS Ministry gives an opportunity for everyone to have a personal, hands-on involvement in worldwide Missions!
