Episcopal Commission on the  Biblical Apostolate 

Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines

IN THE WORD.  FOR THE WORD.


The Episcopal Commission on the Biblical Apostolate (ECBA) is a pastoral commission of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) whose area of competence and service is the biblical-pastoral ministry in its four-fold ministries of:

     Animating Biblical-Pastoral Formation 

     Organizing Bible Celebration 

     Promoting Bible Translation  

     Coordinating Bible Distribution 



OUR MISSION

We, Biblical-Pastoral Animators, 
commit ourselves 
to a new Evangelization 
through the Word of God.


OUR VISION

That all pastoral work be animated 
by the Word of God.  



Since “ignorance of the Scriptures is ignorance of Christ”, making the Bible the inspiration of every ordinary and extraordinary pastoral outreach will lead to a greater awareness of the person of Christ, who reveals the Father and is the fullness of divine revelation.
