The Baptist Union of Sweden (Swedish: Svenska Baptistsamfundet) is the oldest of several Baptist bodies in Sweden. The first known Baptist church in Sweden was organized on September 21, 1848 in Vallersvik, where a group of people committed the first known baptism in Sweden. At the time this was a crime, and the new movement's leader F O Nilsson was deported. Others were fined or jailed. A few years later, the Swedish laws changed, and religious groups other than the official state church were allowed to work.
