The Church is significant to
God, we are His people.


The Church and Administration

The apostles and prophets laid the groundwork for the Church’s foundation, with Jesus Christ serving as its main cornerstone (Matt. 16:18; 1 Cor. 3:11; etc. ). Apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers are all positions of authority given to the Church by Jesus himself (Eph. 4:11), and the power and special gifts of the Holy Spirit were given to make the work possible (1 Cor. 12:7-11).

Church administration is the structure and direction that makes it possible for the Church to function well and with a mission. Although we occasionally must behave as if it were a business forum, the Church has a global mission and has been called to be the hands and feet of Jesus. By monitoring the daily operations, a Church’s administrator ensures the efficient and smooth operation of the Church. The Church will have a difficult time carrying out God’s mission without administration and leadership.

Titus 1:5 states, “This is why I left you in Crete so that you might order what is left, and appoint elders in every town as I directed you.”

Regardless of whether you are the pastor or a regular attendee, you have a crucial job to do in your neighborhood church.

Dr. Miles Bronson ordaining Omed marked the beginning of the pastoral ministry. On April 14, 1867, Momin presided over Rajasimla Church. On that particular day, Omed was given the task of sweeping the hills, preaching, baptizing, performing the duties of a Christian pastor, and “being faithful unto death” in front of everyone.”

Since the word “pastor” literally means “shepherd,” it stands to reason that the best way for a pastor to carry out an equipping ministry is to demonstrate what it means to be a good shepherd. But not all pastors are in today’s society. As a result, they miss the purpose of the ministry to which God has called them. God has given them the responsibility of shepherding their flock. 1 Peter 5:2-4 states that a pastor’s two main responsibilities are to preach the gospel and care for the flock’s spiritual needs. They must perform this voluntarily and willingly; they should not be forced to do so or perform it for payment. Therefore, it is false to advise believers to adhere to biblical teachings. Pastors must emphasize the moral qualities that churchgoers can have and model by highlighting the core lessons that Jesus Christ taught. Therefore, one of his ministry’s most appealing and satisfying spheres should be shepherding. If it isn’t, it shouldn’t be pastoring if it rejects such a ministry or participates in it reluctantly.

Pastors must also help people feel the biblically directed traits of compassion, humility, kindness, and understanding. Being involved in prayerful communication with God and others is the pastor’s primary responsibility. It might inspire others to show that they are well-versed in the Bible.

Deacons typically serve as God’s servants, providing practical ministry to the congregation. Deacons must also be respectable individuals who hold the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience. Deacons, like elders, are effective family spiritual leaders, according to Paul. Therefore, according to the Scripture, serving as a deacon is a rewarding and obedient calling in the church from God.

The first seven deacons were chosen and appointed by the apostles (Acts. 6:1-7). They were initially tasked with giving out food to the less fortunate; however, those in the churches who carried out such acts of kindness later came to be known as deacons (1 Timothy 3:8–10). Their wisdom and spirituality must be abundant.

On April 14, 1867, Miles Bronson founded the First Church. At that time, the Deacons had not yet been chosen. In February 1876, E. G. Phillips and. T. J. Keith traveled to Rajasimla, where the first two deacons were chosen by the congregation.

Together, the pastors and deacons faithfully served God in a variety of ways in daily life. In terms of physical requirements, they even fulfilled those among the poor. Even though the deacons were highly educated, they all upheld God’s principles. 97 deacons are currently serving God faithfully in the church as of this writing.

Every woman is respected in the entire ministry. The family, as described in Ephesians 5, is said to be God’s design for the entire Church, according to the Scriptures. Paul mentions Phoebe in Romans 16:1 as one example of a woman who played a significant role in realizing God’s ideal. He also makes mention of female church leaders who held services in their homes, including Nympha in Colossians 4:15 and Chloe in 1 Corinthians 1:11.

A Friday night worship service was first organized in 1912 by some women stated by Rev. Rehunath K. Momin. We think that Mrs. Jononi Momin, who also sincerely led the women’s ministry in a significant way, was the first-ever “Women Leader” or “Ma·mong” in 1946. They were dedicated and developed into role models for women. Prior to others, they produced distinct aromas despite flaws. Many of them shared their personal testimonies of God’s benevolence with loved ones.

Bible says, “Do not let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity” (1 Tim. 4:12). Serving the youths in the Church can prepare them for future leaders, but we need to contribute to the Church. We can see that God even used young people for His purposes like—David to lead the Israelites and Timothy to pastor and lead the Ephesian Church while they were teenagers.

In 1899, Bago D. Marak, the first evangelist appointed by Rajasimla Church who ventured out to the hill ranges, invited some young people to gather in one place and share the love of God. Again, many youngsters came forward and were impressed by his message. Their mass assembly with one another became huge. This foregathering evolved into a full-fledged ministry with the title “Pante-Metrarangni Kumonggrikani (PMK) or “Youth Fellowship.”

Youths are now becoming one of the most excellent instruments in the Church today. They are involved in the Bible Study programs, Evangelist Camps, Youth Conferences, Seminars, Workshop for pieces of music, and many others. They are also holding the Five Points Emphasis of Youths which led them to understand more. They are—Christian Witness, Christian World Outreach, Christian Citizenship, Christian Living, and Fellowship.

Mr. Tengrak G. Momin, Asst. Pastor is leading the young people of our Church till today. There are more than 900 active members under him.

Jesus commanded, “Let the little children come to me, and do not prevent them, for such are the members of the kingdom of heaven” (Matt. 19:14). Thus, they develop in mothers’ wombs in accordance with His will (Jer. 1:5), and the children’s praise of God is admirable. The most famous is Proverbs 22:6 which says, “Train up a child in the way he should go, and even when he is old he will not turn from it.” In light of this, the Church unquestionably requires proper Christian training (Heb. 10:25).

The Young People’s Fellowship and Rajasimla’s Children’s Ministry were both founded in 1899 by Bago D. Marak, who also founded the Young People’s Fellowship. He gathered the village’s children with great fervor and enthusiasm. With the kids, that familiarity with sharing grew. Because of this, the Church decided to convert its categories into classes, such as Beginners, Primary, Junior, Intermediate, Senior, etc. These strengthened the children’s ministry, sustaining and energizing the entire church body.

It was always organized on Sundays under the name “Sunday School,” but later the name was changed to “Children’s Ministry.” There are currently over 250 pupils.
