And the period between s and s great revival took place in Nagaland and the entire Nagaland became Christian state. However, on the other hand denominations also arise within Christian. The Nagaland Christian Revival Church formed in , grew out of the initial phase of this movement.
It had its origin in a village in Kohima district where, in , an event known as "The Great Awakening started. The revival emphasised believers having a personal encounter with Christ, the witnessing of signs and wonders such as miraculous healings , and having a missionary outreach to non-believing or nominally-Christian Nagas.

Accessed on 19th Sep Critical Analysis The coming of foreign missionaries to Naga Hills had opened the eyes of the people to see God more clearly.
Nagas were totally transformed through the work of the Holy Spirit. The coming of Christianity in Nagaland have changed in ever areas viz, traditions, beliefs, and lifestyle.

The Nagas were brave people and deeply religious people.
Christianity did not make the Nagas religious, nor did Christianity bring God to Nagas. God was there before the arrival of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Christianity did not even identify God for the Nagas. The Nagas had already identified Him.
Nagas view of God, that God own self-revelation in Jesus Christ. Naga people were fully changed because the work of the Holy Spirit.
