North East Christian University
The North East Christian University is an ambitious project (Ministry) of the Council of Baptist Churches in North East India (CBCNEI).
The whole of Northeast India had associations with Christianity prior to the Treaty of Yandabu and the British annexation of Asom in 1826. The Northeast India had Christian presence even before the Ahom Raja, Rudra Singh. Encouraged by David Scott, and Major Jenkins, the Serampore mission opened a school at Guwahati in 1829; just three years after Asom had come under the control of the British. Soon Alexander Lish, opened schools at Cherrapunji, Mawsmai and Mawmluh and made a beginning in the development of Khasi literature. In 1836, the two American Baptist missionary couples came to Sadiya, but soon would move to the hills.
