What Are Their Beliefs?

Over 90% of Italians profess to be Catholic, but less than 1% attend church more than three times a year, including weddings and funerals. Secularism is growing among Italians. Islam and the occult are the two fastest growing religions in Italy. Many Italians believe in the supernatural.

What Are Their Needs?

Missionaries are needed to live out John 1...Italians need people like Jesus, to come and be with them, live among them and be full of grace and truth. Because the country on paper is 98% christian missionaries often do not go, but there are closed countries that have more evangelical christians than Italy. The Italian people need the true gospel of Jesus Christ brought to them with love and grace.
