Aizawl: After a spell of discord for months, The Salvation Army`s Eastern Territory on Sunday formally split as the laymen formed a new church called the Salvation Army Church.

H. Lianzela, leader of the Advisory Council of Salvation Army Laymen (ACSAL) told PTI that the special conference of the Territorial ACSAL at the Mizoram-Assam border Kolasib decided to end the efforts to reform the Salvation Army from inside.
"The two-day special conference decided to form a new church which would have its headquarters in Aizawl," Lianzela said, adding that a committee was formed to deliberate on the future courses of action.
He claimed that the split would affect Mizoram and Manipur while the larger number of members left the Salvation Army in Kolasib to join the new Church.
