It is mission department of the Baptist Churches in Nagaland yet, autonomous in its functions. NMM was founded in 1979 under the leadership of Rev. Longri Ao. It was the outcome of the great revival in the region during the 70's and the fundamental factor for establishing such an autonomous body for mission was the zeal for mission, to evangelize the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Famous quotes containing the words movement and/or missionary:
“The preservation of life seems to be rather a slogan than a genuine goal of the anti-abortion forces; what they want is control. Control over behavior: power over women. Women in the anti-choice movement want to share in male power over women, and do so by denying their own womanhood, their own rights and responsibilities.”
—Ursula K. Le Guin (b. 1929)
“We crossed a deep and wide bay which makes eastward north of Kineo, leaving an island on our left, and keeping to the eastern side of the lake. This way or that led to some Tomhegan or Socatarian stream, up which the Indian had hunted, and whither I longed to go. The last name, however, had a bogus sound, too much like sectarian for me, as if a missionary had tampered with it; but I knew that the Indians were very liberal. I think I should have inclined to the Tomhegan first.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
