The official state church in Norway is the The Lutheran Church, but there is complete freedom for other religions and denominations. About 90% of the Norwegians are church members, but less than 10% of young people are committed Christian, and only 4% of the Nations attend church every Sunday.
The Lutheran Church has a lot of good history with revival, prayer and mission houses and has formed a lot of mission and volunteer agencies. But the church is experiencing the same moral challenges as many other European countries are facing about homosexuality, marriage and other issues. Pray for new revival and for a deep commitment to biblical faith and practice
Norway has one the strongest mission-sending tradition in Europe and still has a lively mission vision today. Pray that this will keep on being strong and that more young people will bold to step into their calling.
The (non-state) Free Churches also play big part in the Norwegian church life. Pentecostal and charismatic churches are the largest, with the Mission Covenant Church, Methodists, Baptists and others also present. These churches are too struggling with retaining church members. There is big need for praying that more people will meet Jesus and be faithful church members.
