Since 1984 the church entered the State of Manipur and targeted two indigenous people groups called 1) Vaiphei and 2) Lamkang. The LJCBC planted churches and set up their own church administration. After several years these two people groups were able to stand on their own, thus became self supporting. As the result of this the Lairam Jesus Christ Baptist Mission Committee decided to move and plant a new church in the area where the Meitei lived. Through education, and discipleship classes the field workers planted a church. At the present time the LJCBC has seventeen workers serving in these areas.
