 The first Youth Cultural Gospel Sunday of Poumai Baptist Church Dimapur was celebrated under the theme “Our Culture in Context of Christianity” with Inspector, Customs & GST Government of India, P. Philip Pao as the guest speaker at Poumai Baptist Church Dimapur on Sunday.

The speaker said that Christianity and culture are closely related to each other like two sides of the same coin, saying Christianity is belief and culture is practice that guides and regulates the behavioural pattern of a society where it like the “Rice and the Plate, Water and the Cup, where “Rice & Water” signifies “Christianity” and “Plate & Cup” stands for “Culture”.

Pao reminded that Nagas have rich culture which needs to be protected, preserved and promoted. Describing about Naga based on the book written by J. H. Hulton, he opined “Nagas are simple, cheerful, colourful, humorous, courteous, hospitable, honest, truthful, healthy, vigorous, religious, brave and well-built.” He said the Nagas were very much a social animal where they worked, built, woo, drank and lived together as a society.

He said Poumai community like any other Naga tribes enjoy both physical and spiritual aspect of culture, self-reliant, self-defiant people, an independent village, produce and manufacture the basic requirement of life and thus is self sufficient people. He reminded the church members that the ideal characters of industriousness, honesty, truthfulness, integrity, righteousness and courage were envied qualities of our Naga forefathers by other communities which Nagas should not loss it.

The occasion also marked with Solo competition, Bible recitation and group cong competition to bring out the various talents embedded in the youth in which the youth members enthusiastically participated.
