You're welcome here!

Wherever you are in life, you have a purpose. At International Bible Fellowship, we want to help you become the person God created you to be.

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.

Draw Near to the Throne

Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

Be a disciple of Jesus Christ

And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.

Idolatry of the heart

It is always good to be made much of for a good purpose, and not only when I am present with you, my little children, for whom I am again in the anguish of childbirth until Christ is formed in you!

We embrace irrational generosity

Tithing is our foundation of giving.

We know it changes lives—ours and the people we’re reaching. At International Bible Fellowship, taking action on your generosity is simple.

Need prayer?

There are times when life is overwhelming, when all we have is questions. In those moments, hope can feel far away. The great thing about prayer is that it shifts our perspective toward the One who stands ready to listen. No matter what you’re facing, we’d love to pray with you!
