Our starting point is to defend all people’s dignity and rights, regardless of their faith or origin. We all live under the same sky and should have the same rights.
The Church of Sweden is an Evangelical Lutheran religious community which is borne by the belief in a God who makes a stand for those who are oppressed or vulnerable. Diaconia is a key part of our identity.
Collaborating and cooperating with other churches and organisations is at the core of Act Church of Sweden´s international mission. As a church, we are part of the worldwide community of churches.
By working with local organisations and churches, we are better able to contribute to long-term sustainable development in the contexts in which our partner organisations operate. We are convinced that religious actors have a great influence on work to bring about change around the world.
