- Revival in Nagaland
The Revival in Nagaland was one of the most remarkable mass-conversion events of the 20th century.
Christian mission began in
Nagaland, a small state in northeast India, bordering Myanmar, in the late 19th century. Revivals took place in 1956, 1966 and 1972. [P. Johnstone and J. Mandryk, "Operation World" (6th edn, Paternoster Publishing, London 2001),330-1. ] The result is that Nagaland is a predominantly Christianstate. The largest denominations are Baptists, as a result of the work of American Baptist Missionaries.
In the year 1962 in a village in
Kohimastarted "The Great Awakening" when the Holy Spiritcame upon the believers of Christand they were moved by the power of the Holy Spirit, as were many non-Christians, who then became Christians.
Churchleaders and the Christianswere inspired by the power of the Holy Spirit and it spread to many parts of the state in Nagaland. Later "The Nagaland Christian Revival Church" was formed and it helped in spreading the gospel "Revival" to all the parts of Nagaland and its neighbouring states as well.
