What is CCBT?

The Church Centric Bible Translation (CCBT) is an emerging movement of Churches and Church planting movements committed to alleviating Scriptures poverty and establishing communities of faithful disciples in every language group.

 

Over the last decade or so, several church networks in the world not generally connected to each other attempted to make bibles or portions available in their heart languages. Different models started emerging in different nations in a search for new ways of doing bible translation that will be faster cheaper and better.  Some of them called this as Paradigm X bible translation movement not knowing how to achieve a quality-assured bible in every language.

They no longer have to wait for a completed bible to begin using them.
