Welcome to our Bible Society

You are warmly welcome to our website. The Bible ministry in Myanmar started 127 years ago by British and Foreign Bible Society as one of its agencies. Amidst of different obstacles, uncertainties and limitations in the country, today, the Bible Society stands firmly in making God’s Word available to the people of Myanmar. To God be the glory for His divine provision and protection.
The population of Myanmar is estimated to be 60 million, of which about 6% are Christians. There are more than 135 sub-races and language groups recognized by the government. Among them, 68 different languages have received either the whole Bible or New Testament or portion of the Bible.
You are invited to explore our current Bible ministry in Myanmar. It is our sincere prayer and hope that these pages will bridge between you and our current ministry for the purpose of sharing God’s Word to different ethnic groups in Myanmar. Together, we can make differences.

Sketch About BSM

In Myanmar (formerly known as Burma), the Bible Ministry was introduced by the British and Foreign Bible Society since 1889 as its one of the agencies. The ministry was led by the following missionaries as the Secretary of the agency until 1964.

(1) Rev William Sherratt (1899-1933)
(2) Rev W. H. Willans (1933-1957)
(3) Rev S. V. Vincent (1957-1964)

Due to political change in Myanmar, all foreign missionaries had to leave the country. As a result the Bible ministry was ministered under the leadership of the national Church leaders since 1964, and the ministry was reorganized as independent and autonomous Bible Society. The full-time national General Secretaries since 1964 are:

(1) Rev U Aung Than (1964 – 1985)
(2) Rev Than Tun Myat (1985 – 1999)
(3) Rev Dr Saw Mar Gay Gyi (2000 – 2010)
(4) Rev Khoi Lam Thang (2010 – to date)

Present Officers (from 2017) are:

Chairman: Rev Dr Zaw Win
Vice Chairman: Captain Lalsangliana
Treasurer: Rev Dr Saw Crainner


The Bible Society of Myanmar is committed to make the BIBLE available by TRANSLATING in to the local languages with quality and faithful to the source languages, PUBLISHING in the format they preferred and DISTRIBUTING with the affordable prices; thus helping them INTERACTING with the Word of God.

To implement the VISION, the Bible Society of Myanmar values partnership and cooperation with the United Bible Societies, international and national Christian Organizations, other Bible agencies and national Churches.


“To transform Myanmar people by the power of the Word of God.”
