Action Biblique Church Association of Switzerland
The Action Biblique Church Association of Switzerland is one of the fruits of the ministry of the Scottish evangelist Hugh Edward Alexander (1884-1957). Formed at the Biblical Institute of Glasgow, at the time of the revival of Wales, he came to settle in Cologny, near Geneva, on August 6, 1906. Zealous witness of Jesus Christ, he had a missionary vision world and fought for biblical faith. His personal vocation was based on the texts of Acts 1: 8, Genesis 13: 14-15 and Jeremiah 1: 18-19.
Acts 1: 8
8. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Genesis 13: 14-15
14. And the LORD said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward:
15. For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever.
Jeremiah 1: 18-19
18. For, behold, I have made thee this day a defenced city, and an iron pillar, and brasen walls against the whole land, against the kings of Judah, against the princes thereof, against the priests thereof, and against the people of the land.
19. And they shall fight against thee; but they shall not prevail against thee; for I am with thee, saith the LORD, to deliver thee.
