National Bible Publishing Month
NBPM is a coordinated effort to focus on the role and responsibility of the local church, in providing the written Word of God for this generation as well as the next. God's plan throughout history has been to preserve and publish His Word through His people. If that is true, then the church must be actively involved in that work today. NBPM is also a time where churches give for the printing of God's Word. Quite simply, it is churches working together, doing the part that each can do to see that the Word goes forward to those without. NBPM is an attempt by BPS Milford to ask churches of like faith to partner with them to provide what they have received to those who have not. We have the ability to do the printing. We are asking churches to help by providing the funds necessary for the supplies. Every dime received through NBPM is used exclusively for the purchase of paper to produce Whole Bibles and New Testaments. Obviously, without paper, there is no printing. Without the printing, there is no Bible produced. Without a Bible being produced, there are souls that will pay the eternal consequence of not receiving the message in time (Romans 10:17).
Every penny raised for National Bible Publishing Month is used to purchase paper to print Bibles and New Testaments. None of the funding is used for promotion, postage, salaries, or even ink; everything goes to buy paper. Our goal for NBPM is $220,000. This is the amount necessary to purchase paper to print Bibles and New Testaments for the open doors that God has given us. To meet these Scripture needs, it will take 11 truckloads of paper. With 32 rolls per truck, it is a total of 339 rolls of paper. The average roll of paper weighs 1,300 pounds, so that means we would need over 440,700 pounds of paper. Each truckload of paper costs an estimated $20,800. We are begging God for a miracle! We are asking Him to supply the funds through His people. We are asking Christians all across America to join us on some level, enabling us to purchase the 339 rolls of paper (about $650 per roll) needed to complete these requests.
