The Episcopal Commission for
the Biblical Apostolate (ECBA) is a pastoral commission of the Catholic
Bishops' Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) whose area of competence and
service is the biblical-pastoral ministry in its five-fold ministries of:
Animating Biblical-Pastoral Formation
Organizing Bible Celebration
Promoting Bible Translation
Assisting Bible Production
Coordinating Bible Distribution
A Community of Disciples
nourished by the Word of God,
Witnessing to the Gospel,
and Striving to be a Church
that is poor and for the poor,
with Mary, Mother of the Word, as model.
We commit ourselves to a new Evangelization based on the Word of God proclaimed, accepted, celebrated and meditated upon in the Church. We will live and proclaim the Word as Good News to the poor, let the Bible inspire all our pastoral work, and be guided by the teachings of Dei Verbum and Verbum Domini, and by the vision of the Second Plenary Council of the Philippines.
