Pages from History:- 25 December, 1905: Formation of the National Missionary Society of India (NMSI).

On Christmas Day 1905, a meeting of the church leaders held in the historic library of William Carey at Serampore decided to form a National Missionary Society.

The following principles were adopted on that day

1. The work of evangelization shall be done by Indians

2. That its expenses should be met by Indian money.

3. They must choose mission fields in areas where Western Missions were not working

4. The society should not form a church or denomination but entrust the converts they gather to the care of the churches in that area.
