Ministry Snapshots

  • Overview

    Bibeln idag / Scripture Union Sweden was begun in 1965. The vision of Scripture Union Sweden is to help every Christian experience a growing, personal relationship with God through the Bible and prayer and to equip churches with resources for leading families, children, youth and adults to know and follow Jesus Christ.

    The focus of Scripture Union Sweden’s ministry is providing resources for greater Bible engagement for people of all ages and for those at all stages in the development of their faith – from curious outsiders and new believers to people who have followed Christ for many years.
