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.


Worship Service

In line with the decision of the Swiss government, we have decided that we will not meet together on Sunday evening for the rest of March and throughout April.We are video-recording the services planned for Sunday and live broadcasting them on the IBF website.

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.

Swiss German 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 Swiss German speaking home Bible Study that meets every other Thursday evening. The meetings alternate between members’ homes. The meetings start at 7:30 pm with fellowship followed by Bible study. We are usually finished by 9:30 pm.

Continuity Between Jesus and the Law and Prophets

17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished. 19 Therefore whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be…
