Dimapur, Jan. 22 (EMN): Chakhesang Baptist Church Council (CBCC) has resolved to be more dedicated and equipped in liberating the people from all kinds of sinful bondages and also uphold the sanctity of Sunday by appealing all believers not to engage in any secular activities/ programmes on Sundays.
