The Adventist Church in Sweden operates a junior college and an elementary school, Ekebyholmsskolan. It also runs extensive development and relief activities in some of the poorest countries of the world through ADRA Sweden, a work which is partly funded by the Swedish Mission Council and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA). The Adventist Church's publishing house, Skandinaviska Bokförlaget, makes different kinds of printed media available in the Swedish language.
The Seventh-day Adventist Church in Sweden was first organized in Sweden as a Free Church in 1880. After the separation of the state and the Church of Sweden was completed in 2000, the Adventist Church applied for and was granted status as a Registered Religious Community (registrerat trossamfund), under the new Act of Religious Communities.
A registered religious community has nonprofit (NPO) status in relation to the Swedish Tax Agency.
