In April 2017, a group of 15 churches in Charlotte, North Carolina completed the Community Bible Experience— an eight-week journey through the New Testament in partnership with American Bible Society. Using an edition of the New Testament containing no chapter or verse numbers created by Biblica, The International Bible Society, the Community Bible Experience in Charlotte helped more than 5,000 people experience the Bible as a vibrant story, not as an intimidating reference book. The result? The city of Charlotte is hungry for more of God’s Word.
“We can’t stop now,” says one church leader in Charlotte. “We’ve started something great and now people look forward to talking about the Bible every week.”
Thanks to the support of our faithful financial partners, American Bible Society has been engaging people with the life-changing message of God’s Word for more than 200 years.
