Welcome to Oslokirken!

Aina & I are happy to receive you into «The New Oslokirken», as well as into our expanding initiatives and family of ministries and churches in Oslo, Norway, Europe, and globally.

This apostolic center and local church really «started» in my heart in 1985, when I was the associate pastor of Salemkirken here in Oslo. The Lord distinctly called me to this city. That is why I always say that «Oslo is the city that I love». My wife and co-pastor Aina & I - together - have a heart for this city.

Oslo is the fastest growing capital city of Europe with a population within the municipality itself of 709 037 (SSB 2023). Oslo had 177 455 immigrants and 56 899 Norwegian-born with immigrant parents at the beginning of 2020. Totally this amounts to 33,8 percent of the capital’s population (SSB 2020). 2/3 of Oslo consists of waters and forests.
