With a vision of to 'Reach the Unreached', we took the Gospel of the Lord through our New Life International Ministries, to the far and wide, through home cells, Street Corner preaching, Carol rounds, Christmas programs, Music nights, Retreats, Seminars, Conferences, Gospel Crusades, Magazines and through CDs for the past decade.
We reached out to the masses through Spiritual and through social activities like free eye camps, medical camps, supporting orphanages, old age homes, helping the poor and needy and undertaking relief activities. Through these we were able to share the love of Christ to the lost souls and win them back to God. As days went on, we all did witness the tough times, persecutions and hardships that were carried out against the Church and its people which left an unhealable wound in our hearts. Though these are deemed to happen for the fulfilment of the words of the Bibles, it is really hard and difficult to face and endure it, that too as an individual. Thus in order to do our work with no fear and to be a voice for the people of God, who are persecuted and oppressed and to continue our social presence as a recognized body in the Country, the Charismatic Churches of India Diocese was founded by The Most Rev. Dr. Reinhard C. Sekar who in turn was ordained as its Archbishop.
