The Church of North India (CNI) is the dominant protestant denomination in the northern part of India. Also, the Church of North India is a united church that was established in the year 29th November, 1970 by bringing all the main protestant churches that were working in northern part of India together. This was the initial successor for the Church of England in India and Church of South India (CSI).
Merger of Churches
The discussion for the merger of churches had begun in the year 1929. Ultimately, the negotiating board was constituted in the year 1951, by the Church bodies concerned between the Church of India, the United Church of North India, Burma, Pakistan, and Ceylon, the Methodist Church in Southern Asia (British and Australian conferences) and the Council of the Baptist Churches in Northern India (British Baptists). In the year 1957, the Church of the Brethren and the Disciples of Christ denominations also joined in the negotiations. The discussion had reached its 4th and final edition in the year 1965. On that basis, the Church Union in North India was inaugurated in the year 29 November, 1970 in Nagpur. At the final moment, the Methodist Church in Southern Asia had decided not to adhere with the union of churches. However, the British, the Methodist Church and the Australasian have joined the Union.
Need for Merger
The concern for unity of the Church had grown out of a zeal for the mission of the Church. For the reason that, a divided Church could not bear witness to the one Gospel and the one Lord in a country like India with varied languages, religions, cultures and races. Through the process of prayerful seeking of the guidance of Holy Spirit and negotiations, unity had been achieved in the understanding and practice of the sacraments of Baptism and the Lord's Supper, the three-fold ministry of Bishops, Deacons and Presbyters and in the organizational structures of Dioceses and the Synod, Pastorates, Episcopacy was received and accepted as both constitutionally as well as historically. Provision has been made for diverse liturgical practices and understandings of the divine revelation.
