The Finnish Bible Institute offers courses and other activities in Kauniainen and elsewhere in Finland
The Finnish Bible Institute Foundation was established by a well-known evangelist Rev. Urho Muroma in 1939. The Bible Institute started giving Bible courses in 1945 in the beautiful surroundings of Kauniainen which is about ten miles west of Helsinki. Nowadays the Institute offers various courses and activities also for the immigrants.
As a Christian in Finland – an Integration Course for Immigrants
The course suits particularly well for immigrants who have lived in Finland for one or two years and studied the basics of the Finnish language. It is fulltime studies 24-28 hours a week.
The course aims to familiarize students with the history of Finland as well as the Finnish society and culture, the Bible and the Christian faith and the Church. Students also have the opportunity to improve their computer skills if needed. The studies include work life familiarization, if the student’s Finnish language level is sufficient.
We also undertake trips to historical, cultural and communal places which are worthwhile for the integration of the student. The teacher responsible for the course is Marja-Kaarina Marttila. More information and application forms.
