Bibles for the World president Pu Dr Rochunga Pudaite and his wife Pi Lalrimawi have jointly issued a call for the "re-unification" of the Hmar people under one church.

This is the third such attempt for re-unification among the Hmar churches in less than a decade. “The two earlier attempts had failed due to differences over how the properties of different churches should be settled,” sources said.

In their appeal published as a booklet, 'Hmar Kohran Inpumkhat Dinga Kona' (Call for unification of Hmar Churches) the US-based missionary couple said, "The Hmars have suffered much being divided... our social life had been the most affected... and to renew the kingdom of God and our tribe we need to remind ourselves the prayer of Christ: ‘So that they can be one again’…”.

Since the late 1950s, the Hmars have been divided strongly into denominational lines due to differences among their leaders. Many versions have come up as to why the Independent Church of India(considered the parent church of the Hmars) broke up. However, recent trends among the youth show that many are in favour of the Hmars being united under one church. As of now, the Independent Church of India and the Evangelical Free Church of India are the two churches having maximum members while there are others like the Evangelical Assembly Church, Assemblies of God, Presbytarian Church, Methodists, Reformed Presbyterian Church, Lutheran, Catholics and others with lesser members but not without strong feelings towards their respective denominations.

The 18-page booklet also traces (in Pu Rochunga’s own words) the events that led to the dismemberment of the Hmar church (Independent Church) and its effect on the Hmar community besides a response form for readers to send their opinions on whether they would like to see a united Hmar church again and how it should be achieved.

It is also learnt that the Hmar Students Association, General Headquarters has been entrusted with task of distributing the booklet to all Hmar inhabited areas, especially among the youth and to collect the response forms thereafter.

Pu Rochunga and his wife are expected to make a trip to India either in February or March 2009. "They will meet diverse sections of the Hmar leadership during their visit," sources close to the family said.

It may be noted that the Hmar tribe of northeast India will be celebrating 100 years of Christianity in 2010. The community received the Gospel of Christ back in 1910 under the patronage of Welsh missionary couple Watkin R Roberts and his wife.

  1. Ummmm, sounds great but i think only the screen saver/ desktop is shown. If it is for the concern of the hmars, then why need to post in english? I guest this is meant for english-speaking people rather than the Hmars.

  2. @ Rh Why English? Please try to stick to the issue here and not stray around. Let's not divert our attention to to some thing else.

  3. This is not an easy task for any community who have divided from decades to decade. One doubtful thing is that, will Pu Rochung would sacrifice his Church? He did not mention in which denomination the Hmars should come together. In my opinion, if anyone call for something, they should mention their goal or proposal. The pros and cons. So that the readers can share their views vividly.

  4. The Roman Catholic Church is the only one true church of Jesus Christ

  5. Roman Catholic Church is not the only True Church of Jesus Christ. Protestant Churches have shamed The Church of Rome for its past wrong practices. Repent and be saved!

    Hmar Church coming under one Roof is not the real solution. Christianity allows people to worship God freely. If they want to come together under one roof the only possibility is to create an inter-denominational Church devoid of any denominations. B
