ABOUT US

Wycliffe Philippines pursues the vision of Revelation 7:9, “After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb”, and then participates in the declaration of Matthew 24:14, “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”

Wycliffe Philippines believes in the prophetic destiny of the Filipino as an evangelist to the nations, having been named Philippines, after Philip the evangelist in the book of Acts in the New Testament. The Filipino in diaspora in general and the Global Filipino Church in particular have strategically positioned Filipinos to directly engage the remaining Bibleless and Unreached People Groups of the world.  Working hand-in-hand in partnership with the Global Filipino Church, we see Wycliffe Philippines contributing to this prophetic destiny.

We believe in the power of his Word, and desire to honor God and love people.

This is our mandate:

  • To seek the spiritual transformation of Bibleless people groups in culturally-appropriate ways;
  • To share the Word of God in the heart language of the people in oral or written form;
  • To see people grow in their relationship with God as communities of Christ-followers.

OUR VISION

Until that day Bible Translation is done, and the Lord is pleased.

OUR MISSION

Persevere in the work of Bible translation and related activities, breaking bread and engaging communities and churches and helping create a platform to let the Word permeate in their lives.

OUR HISTORY

Wycliffe Bible Translators Philippines, Inc. is a non-stock non-profit, faith-based mission organisation registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission on 27 December 2007. We are a member organisation of the Wycliffe Global Alliance since 1 June 2010. We are a regular member under the para-church category of the Philippine Council of Evangelical Churches since 13 July 2011.

Wycliffe Philippines believes in doing the right thing in the best way possible in order to fulfill our God-given mandate to translate the life-changing Word of God in the heart language of the people and shared in the most appropriate form, whether in digital, visual, oral or written form. In order to achieve this, we align ourselves with the Mission of God and enter in partnership with churches, individuals and like-minded associations for mobilizing prayer, funds and missionaries. We do this because we are compelled by our love of God and our obedience to his command to make Christ-disciples all nations.

OUR LOGO

The stylized red and blue lines are symbolic colors of the Philippine flag and from the letter W for Wycliffe.

Such symbol also depicts:

  • An open book – “The Word of God”.
  • A flying dove which represents the Holy Spirit, anointing the ministry.
  • The same abstract strokes are art forms akin to “wings” symbolic of the spread and flight (as in the flight of birds) of our Spirit-filled Filipino missionaries that will be sent out to the world with the transforming power of the Word of God.
