Our purpose in Källan is that more Jews and non-Jews should receive biblical preaching and teaching.
In Israel and Eastern Europe Källan wants to preach that Jesus is the Messiah of the Jews and the saviour of the whole world. Through association with The Norwegian Church Ministry to Israel (NCMI) we support messianic congregations, education of congregation leaders, geriatric care, social work and reconciliation work among Palestinian and Jewish youths.
In Sweden we reach out to non-believers with the gospel, and to believers with continuous teaching; through evangelism in the streets and through a magazine, books, a website, a TV play-channel and physical gatherings.
Sweden is the world’s most secular country, and many parishes, bishops and priests do not stand up for what the Bible says. We need to take this mantle that lies on our shoulders and convey biblical teaching so that people in Sweden get to know the way of God.
Källan was founded in 1999 by today’s chairman and CEO Carl-Henrik Karlsson to reach out with biblical preaching and teaching. It started with giving away tape-recordings with devotions. People responded positively and the organisation was on-stream.
However, sharing the gospel with the Jews has a longer history in Sweden. Svenska Israelsmissionen (the Swedish Israel Mission, 1875-1975) and later on Göteborgs Israelskrets (the Göteborg fellowship for Israel, 1989-2012) are our ancestors. As back then, since 2013, Källan supports many of the projects that The Norwegian Church Ministry to Israel and its local partners run.
Källan is a Swedish non-profit organisation run by a board out of bylaws and with an accountant. Our registration number in Sweden is 802415-9710.
Källan is a lutheran apostolic missionary organisation. We wish to operate with loyalty towards the Bible – the Word of God. We stand in continuity with the lives, mission and teachings of the apostles and are open to anyone who wishes to carry on with the baton, regardless of church-affiliation.
Our mission is both simple and radical at the same time: We preach Christ. (1 Corinthians 1:23)
The name Källan can be translated with the well, the source, the fountain or the spring.

Avi Snyder – European Director, Jews for Jesus – send this greeting:
I thank the Lord for the way you and Källan are standing with us Jews for Jesus. You are such an encouragement. I am so grateful that we are “standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel” (Philippians 1:27). I’m reminded of the words of King David, as well as the words of Paul:
“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity” (Psalm 133:1).
“For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one” (Ephesians 2:14).
Thank you and God bless you for sharing our burden for the salvation of our Jewish people. And thank you and God bless you for making our burden lighter through your prayers and financial support!
European Director, Jews for Jesus
