Living Word Christian Center was started in January 2001 by pastors Donato and Annelies Anzalone. Since then, LWCC has become a church that strives to reach out to the whole population of Tessin, nationals and internationals alike. Our vision is to Exalt the Lord Jesus, Equip the Body of Christ and Expand the Kingdom of God in people’s lives.
We are a Spirit-Filled Church and although we are non-denominational we are accountable to two international ministries: The International Evangelical Church, represented by Pastor Silvano Lilli (www.ceiam.it) and the Fellowship of European International Churches represented by Pastor Terry Hoggard (www.feic.org). This gives LWCC a very clear sense of accountability as both, Pastor Silvano Lilli and Pastor Terry Hoggard cover us spiritually.
We also believe that a church should have fellowship with other churches in the area where she ministers, this is why LWCC is an active part of the Federation of Free Evangelical Churches in Ticino; and pastor Donato is also part of and the coordinator of the Pastoral Fellowship of Ticino which gathers many churches of the Canton. In this way, our church strives to fulfill God’s purposes nationally and internationally.
