This year’s Easter conference was held under a brilliant sun for over 9,000 participants first weekend in April. For more than 60 years, BCC has organized a conference at Brunstad at Easter, and this year there was a record number of international guests
For Christians, Passover is a time of a heightened awareness and spiritual communion. The Last Supper, which was a farewell feast for Jesus and His disciples, has become a meal of remembrance that is practiced in essentially all of Christianity, especially during Easter.
Brunstad Christian Church started in Norway on May 17th, 1898 through Johan O. Smith’s conversion and is a result of his life and work. At the present time BCC has local churches in 54 countries spread over every continent. In Norway there are 19 local churches comprised of approximately 8,000 members.
In Norway BCC is often called “Smith´s Friends,” due to its origins, but this has never been our official name. BCC´s local churches use the name Brunstad Kristelige Menighet (BKM), which is “Brunstad Christian Church” in Norwegian.
The overall purpose in BCC is to encourage everyone to live a life as a disciple of Jesus according to Jesus’ Great Commission. We want to show charity, caring and generosity towards the individual in its various conditions and circumstances.
