Evangel Book Centre was set up in 1955 by an assembly-led management committee as a ministry-based body for the advancement of the Christian Faith in Malaysia. Its purpose, as stated in Article 11 Clause 2 of its constitution, is “to make available evangelical books, publications, Christian literature and other merchandise which present Christian truth and teaching in all aspects of the Christian Faith.”
The purpose remains unchanged today and are founded on the following three defining propositions:
1. That the goal of the ministry is primarily to encourage people to read good Christian literature. This makes Evangel ministry-based and non-profit oriented. No one except the staff of the book centre receives a salary or other remuneration.
2. That there remains room for a physical bookstore where people can browse through pre-selected Christian literature, supported where possible by online platforms.
3. That less can be more. This means Evangel will not stock books simply because they are popular but because it genuinely believes they are helpful for Christian growth.
The books available at Evangel Book Centre’s three stores and via the events and book tables it avails itself to fall under a comprehensive range of literature covering Bibles & Study Bibles, Bible Commentaries & Dictionaries, Theology, Apologetics, Church History, Discipleship & Spirituality, Christian Living, Counselling & Christian Care, Pastoral Aids, Family, Marriage, Children, Sunday School, Youth, Young Adults, Christian Fiction, Prayer, Worship, Devotion, Mission and Evangelism.
There is also a selection of Christian posters, greeting cards, Sunday School materials, calendars, bookmarks and other church-related items.
