The Bible Society of Nigeria

Empowering the Deaf with the Word of God

In line with its vision of growing a community of Nigerian Christians empowered by the Holy Bible to make positive global impacts, as well as its mission of making the Holy Bible available and affordable to Nigerians in their preferred languages and formats, The Bible Society of Nigeria (BSN) has completed the translation of 77 selected Bible stories in the Nigerian Sign Language Bible for the Deaf which is now set to be formally dedicated. This is in addition to the existing 145 stories.
The Nigerian Sign Language Bible is a project embarked upon by The Bible Society of Nigeria to translate the Bible into the Nigerian Sign Language which is the heart language of the Deaf in Nigeria.
The purpose of the project is to help the deaf people interact with the word of God, thus enhancing their Bible knowledge for spiritual awareness, moral development, and empowerment for success in life.
The dedication of the new Bible stories for the Deaf is scheduled for Saturday, 26th November 2022 at the Bible Guest House, Research and Development Centre, Samonda, Ibadan, Oyo State with various dignitaries expected to grace the event.
