FTC celebrates

Dimapur, April 17: Faith Theological College celebrated its 10th Graduation Ceremony 2019 at the FTC Campus Ura Villa Colony today with MLA Kuzholuzo (Azo) Nienu as Special Guest and Rev. Dr. Nokjung Tzudir, Mobiliser World Wide Evangelization for Christ (WEC) as its Guest Speaker.
Speaking on the occasion, Azo said he had seen so many youths who had completed their B.Th, M.Th but they loiter around after completing their courses.
They had totally deviated from the path of Christianity and are living an opposite life to what they were taught, he said and urged the graduating students “to be cautious, keep their mind open and not to be deviated but to remain united to spread the word of Christ”.
Exhorting the students, Nienu said good life, money vehicle, luxury and lust should not divert their attention. “We have come to this world to save our soul but we are living in a totally different world,” he said.
He cautioned that the prevailing scenario is so pathetic that the coming of the Christ is imminent and it is drawing nearer. He requested the graduating students to promote and glorify the Holy Gospel in true Christian sense and seek advices form elders, parents and teachers and be guided by the gospels.
He further said, “The evil ones deviating from the path of the Lord doesn’t last long, their souls are lost in the process of worldly quest. We should try to save our souls in this process.”
Earlier in his welcome address, Rev. Dr. S.Gangte, Founder Principal disclosed that many retired government employees of state governments and central government and elderly citizens had opted for the theological courses from this institute.
“It is the desire of many to study the words of God and to spread it to humanity,” he said.
Faith Theologial College is recognised by Nagaland government and accredited by NATA, IATA and GATA, Rev. Gangte added
The Commencement address was delivered by Rev. Dr. Nokjung Tzudir who spoke about World Wide Evangelization for Christ (WEC) which is 106 years old International Organisation with more than 2000 Missionaries from 60 countries of the world and they are serving the Lord in 90 countries. It has its branch established in 2006-10 in North East too and had urged the graduating students to join the mission if they are interested.
Rev. Tzudir further said, “We are ambassador of Christ and the graduates are the newly appointed ambassadors of Christ,” and urged the graduates to desist from evil forces and the desires of the flesh and money should not be within us.
He further stressed on the three Principles of life, “the enemy is within us, the enemy is around us and the enemy is above us”.
