Welcome

We welcome you to the website of The Philadelphia Bible Society. We exist to “freely distribute the scriptures.” We have been sowing such scriptural seed since 1838, and have no intention of stopping, as we continue to be entrusted with the mission of making God’s Word available to any and all who would receive from us.

Our work has allowed us to take God’s Word into hospitals and nursing homes, schools and universities, food-banks and social service offices, prisons and detention centers, streets and shopping centers – In short: We go wherever we are welcome or “spy” a spot from which to share the Holy Scriptures.

We make available various portions of God’s Word through booklets, leaflets, and mini-books. We provide each of the four Gospels, Romans, Psalms, Proverbs, as well as a bevy of more thematically-based material, as you will discover as you browse our “Arcade of Offerings.”

It is a notable point that we publish our own materials. We print on-site, within the premises of our new home with the First Baptist Church at Conshohocken, located at 100 East 4th Avenue, on the corner of 4th Avenue and & Harry Street. We welcome you to visit with us, simply suggesting a phone call at 215-482-2821 to be assured that we are physically present or to make an appointment. It will be our pleasure to receive you.

Pastor Bradley E. Lacey, Pastor of First Baptist Church, serves as our President. Mr. David Robinson services as our Director of Ministry. Mrs. Hope Duran serves as our Administrative Assistant.

“Since you have purified yourselves by obedience to the truth for sincere mutual love, love one intensely, from a pure heart.  You have been borne anew, not from perishable but from imperishable seed, through the living and abiding word of God, for: ‘All flesh is like grass, and all its glory like the flowers of the field; the grass withers, and the flower wilts, but the word of the Lord remains forever.’”

(1 Peter 1:22-24 NASV)

By reading the scriptures I am so renewed that all nature seems renewed around me and with me.  The sky seems to be a pure, a cooler blue, the trees a deeper green.  The whole world is charged with the glory of God and I feel fire and music under my feet.

(Thomas Merton)
