Northeast India
Nagaland Baptist Church Council


Rev. Dr. E. W. Clark, a pioneer American missionary, with the help of Mr. Godhula, an Assamese Christian, established the first Church in Molungkimong in 1872. Through the untiring efforts and sacrifices of the local Christians and foreign missionaries, the gospel reached to all the Naga tribes. Today, about 65 percent of the population in Nagaland state are Christian, but if the native Nagas are considered, 90 percent are Christians. The native Nagas are actively involved in various mission programs. The Naga missionaries served throughout India, Bhutan, Myanmar, Cambodia and China. The present membership of the NBCC, as of January 2007, is 454,349 with 20 Associations and 1347 local churches.
