About Us

Established in 1946, the United Bible Societies (UBS) is the collective name for our fellowship of 148 individual Bible Societies working in over 200 countries and territories. Bible Societies share a common mission in the efficient use of God-given resources to place the Word of God in the hearts and minds of the people they serve.

The Bible Societies have been serving and supporting Bible missions in China since the arrival of the first Protestant missionary, Rev Robert Morrison, in 1807. In order to continue to serve and support the Bible ministry in China after the Cultural Revolution, UBS established the China Partnership (CP) team dedicated to work with the Church in China on behalf of the UBS Fellowship.

UBS partnership with the Chinese Church came about when top leaders of the China Christian Council (CCC) had a vision of printing and distributing Chinese Bibles in China. This massive historical project became possible due to the coordinated fund-raising efforts of 37 member Bible Societies and two UBS Regional Centers.

In 1987, the Amity Printing Company Ltd (APC) was formed through a joint venture agreement between Amity Foundation and the UBS Publishing Co Ltd. UBS donated the much-needed Bible paper and funding to enable millions of Bibles to be printed and  distributed throughout China.
