Nagaland Baptist Church Council (NBCC) during its 74th annual session held at Rotomi Baptist Church (SBAK: Nito Mount) from February 4 – 6 came out with several resolutions to be implemented in the churches.
It resolved to implement ‘Dawn Prayer’ in all the Baptist Churches with ringing of the bell besides participation of the Churches in a yearlong ‘Chain of Prayer.’ NBCC also resolved to encourage family prayers to be initiated by the father in all the homes. Further, it was resolved that the town Churches would conduct evening services only after the offices were closed. On the Bible reading and Bible study, it was resolved that all the members of the Baptist family in Nagaland would be engaged in Bible reading throughout the year. All the Churches in Nagaland would also be engaged in Bible study of the book of Acts and Romans, enabling each member to be scripturally rooted.
NBCC resolved to address the social issues such as peace and justice, HIV and AIDS through proper teaching of the Word of God. NBCC said it would continue to strive for stringent implementation of the Total Liquor Prohibition Act in all the district headquarters. The Council reaffirmed its stand in imparting Christian values and Biblical teachings to the people to abstain from any form of substance abuses. In this regard, all the local churches were directed to make appropriate plans to help alcoholics to abstain from alcoholism.
Reaffirming the resolution adopted during its 72nd annual session held at Ahthibung in February 2009, the NBCC reiterated that the Baptist Churches would initiate climate change and eco-biological friendly actions, sensitize on conservation of forest and preservation of wild life, and work closely with the community leaders and concerned departments for addressing the environmental alarm. It also resolved to abstain from using jungle meats during NBCC and Churches gatherings. It discouraged Churches from offering wild animals during its thanksgiving service.
A statement from the NBCC said that the 74th annual session saw the largest gathering in its history in similar programs with over 600 delegates representing different associations under NBCC. The Council appreciated the speakers, Bible expositor, and workshop speakers who brought heart pounding and self searching sermons with rich spiritual insights, the numerous choirs for the exhilarating music and the breathtaking hospitality the delegates were immersed with. The Session was held under the theme “Being rooted in the word of God.”
