The thousands of military personnel stationed in Vicenza, whether they are single or have a family, need a place where they can know and be known, where they can be members of a loving, nurturing fellowship. They need a place where they can hear and experience the grace of God in Jesus Christ through Christ-centered preaching, heartfelt prayer, and the celebration of the Sacraments. These men and women, boys and girls need a place where they can come to know the One who is the Way and the Truth and the Life, and knowing him, can grow in his grace and knowledge as more and more they grow into his likeness. Our neighbors in Vicenza need these things also.
Before his ascension, Jesus commanded his Church to go, to teach the truth and baptize, to make all sorts of people his disciples. That is our task, and this is our prayer: That God by his grace through his Spirit would use New Life meet the need and bring many people in Vicenza---people from all sorts of places and backgrounds---to saving faith in Christ. We pray that he would add them to his Church and cause them to grow through all the means of grace into spiritual maturity and Christlikeness.
New Life Church Vicenza is called by God to glorify him and to enjoy him and to love and serve U.S. military personnel and the local community in Vicenza through faithful use of the ordinary means of grace, and to demonstrate the love of Christ through prayer and practical, generous acts of service, so that others may be drawn into a saving relationship with Jesus Christ and his Church.
