This research was prompted by the observation that there is minimal use of Lamnso’ scriptures in Baptist churches in Nso’, even though the Lamnso’ New Testament has been in use since 1990. It was also observed that the active participation of Nso’ Christians in Bible studies done in Lamnso’ points to great prospects in the extensive use of Lamnso’ scriptures. Hence, the author in the thesis seeks to devise a strategy for promoting Lamnso’ scriptures for extensive use. He consulted academic works to find out what others have written in view of the importance of mother tongue scriptures and conducted a historical analysis to find out how historical factors have shaped the attitude of Baptist churches towards scriptures in Lamnso’. He did an empirical study by sending questionnaires to fifty-seven Baptist churches and receiving feedback.
