About Our Church

Union Baptist Church Kohima is a Baptist church located in the heart of Kohima town near the local ground.

It was established on 28th October 1973 by a group of like-minded Christian leaders envisioning a Bible-based evangelical church in the heart of Kohima.

Following the Billy Graham Evangelistic Crusade in 1972 and revivals happening in the state in the early 70s, there was a felt need among the new and growing number of believers for an Evangelistic church in the heart of the state’s capital. Union Baptist Church was thus formed with this vision to cater to people from different tribes, backgrounds, status, and intellectual standing, but with this common vision to be a body of believers who stand by God’s Word.
