Word of Life is way more than a church building – it’s a home for thousands of people from all walks of life. A place where we come together to meet with Christ and one other, to share His life and be transformed by His love. We are all about missions and reaching the corners of the world with the Gospel, but just as much about reaching the corner closest to home with that amazing and unfailing love of God. We would love for you to join our community and our vision, so whenever you are in the area: welcome here, welcome home!
- Joakim Lundqvist, Senior Pastor
Word of Life is mission! Mission is not just something we do, it is something we are. The Great Commission is of highest priority, we sense its urgency and therefore reach out into many countries and cultures across the world. Nations filled with precious individuals are waiting for the Good News. We have decided – they shall not wait in vain! We want to reach them, equip them and send them forth. The harvest is great and the number of workers will grow!
- Christian Åkerhielm, Missions Director
”Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” – Matthew 28:19-20
>> The year was 1983. Founded by Ulf and Birgitta Ekman, Word of Life started up in Uppsala with just 20 people. 20 people that shared a vision and a dream in Christ about a church that would reach the nations with Gods love.
Throughout the years, through heavy waves and deep water God has constantly blessed his work and taken care of the church. Today, Word of Life has over 3000 members and is visited by around 1500 people every sunday.
The church has multiple branches throughout the world and the international work is always growing. Through worship, preaching and mission we get to be a part of sharing the message of Jesus Christ with the world. We get to see God do great things and touch thousands of lives all over the world.
Our doors are always open and you are welcome to visit us. Every week there are opportunities for you to visit us during a service and worship together with us. We have multiple services during the week and different gatherings for people in all seasons of life. We welcome you to join us!
