New Church at GPRN/NSCN designated Camp Khehoi was dedicated to the Lord on Sunday by Rev. Dr. V.K Nuh, General Secretary CNBC.
Soon after, with a solemn prayer, Rev. O Alem opened the door of the new Church to invitees, guests and national workers. Rev. Dr Wati Aier, Convener Forum for Naga Reconciliation (FNR) conducted an invocation at the service.
N Kitovi Zhimomi, Ato Kilonser, GPRN, in his short speech, pointed out that dedicating new Church for the glory of the Lord was good but he asked the members whether they were ready and willing to open their hearts and dedicate themselves to Christ. He said to “dedicate the Church to Christ and not surrender our hearts to Christ would be meaningless” and the new Church at designated camp Khehoi must be a worshipping place where all National workers and their families should make closer contact with Christ.
He expressed hope that every National worker would recommit himself/herself to Christ, the head of the Church, and built personal relationship with God. This was the only way for Naga Nation to strengthen its foundation, he added.
Rev. O Alem, E.S, ABAM, who brought a short sermon to the congregation, picked Romans 12:2 to touch the hearts of invitees and National workers.
He shared that of all God’s creations, it was man alone who worshiped God and it was man alone who was created in his own image. God put love into each human being so that man could worship God alone or in group, accepting and loving one another.
He appealed to the gathering that reconciliation among the people will bear fruit only when the people first reconciled with God and seeking Jehovah’s will was most important because real freedom was with the Lord.
Earlier, a welcome speech was given Haolim Kuki, NPAC member. Presentations prepared by Council of Nagaland Churches were given away to dignitaries, guests and also to GPRN/NSCN officials. Linda Kuki presented a special number while vote of thanks was proposed by Hevukhu Yeptho, Speaker of the Tatar Hoho. Rev. Mongthung, E.S, NPBC, pronounced the benediction.
