We’re excited about God

We’re excited about God and the good things He’s doing on earth, and love that we get to be part of it!

Personal revival, Kingdom impact

International Bible Fellowship is a community of worshippers in Buchs SG, Switzerland. We exist to ignite individual hearts until Heaven meets Earth. We gather to encounter God’s presence, where personal revival starts.

It’s all about God’s presence

Worship creates a space for us to experience the tangible presence of our good Father. We believe it’s what we’re all created for.

Gather with us

We’re so honored to host people from around the world every week. We’d love for you to visit us for an event or Sunday service.


Moms in Prayer

At Moms in Prayer International, we believe that a mom can be the single greatest force for good in the lives of her children and the children around her.

Thursday Night Bible Study

The leaders at IBF believe that the best way for members to connect with others and to form long lasting relationships is in a small group setting. We have a home Bible Study that meets every second and fourth Thursday of the month. The meetings alternate between members’ homes. The meetings start at 7 pm with fellowship followed by Bible study. We are usually finished by 9 pm.

Men’s Bible Study

Dear Brothers Start the day with coffee, fellowship, and a healthy serving of God’s Word.
