NagaNagaland, January 10, 2012: Nagaland Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio said that the church is the only platform which can bring unity among the Naga people.

“We might be from different denominations but we all worship one God,” the chief minister said while speaking at the golden jubilee celebration of the Nagaland Christian Revival Church on January 9.

He called upon Christians to come together and develop a spirit of oneness and unite as a family regardless of denominations.

“They must work together for unity and peaceful co-existence,” he said.

The chief minister urged all to join hands and continue to focus on the welfare and uplift of the Naga society.

Before the advent of Christianity in Nagaland, Rio said, the Nagas were a minority, had no formal education and lacked leadership. But the arrival of Christianity brought about drastic changes in their lives.

He said the literacy rate of the state now has reached upto 81 percent after the arrival of Christianity.

“This is a good development,” he said.
