Zoram Thar Zofate Lairelna Inpui (formerly Zoram Thar) is a non-denominational church founded in February 2016 by former Presbyterian missionary Rev. Dr. Zaichwana Halwando.

The group claimed they belonged to Israel and were descendants of Joseph, one of the 12 sons of Jacob found in the Old Testament.

Releasing the blueprint of the church here on Monday, Halvando said that the proposed church named ‘Zophet Pathion Biakinpui’ will be the largest in the world as it will attract and bring all countries under its roof.

Halvando said that the church belongs to all Zofet (tribes of the Mizo or Zo race around the world) and will be constructed through public donations and voluntary services.

The length and width of the church will be 270 feet and the height will be 177 feet.
