The Shows Will Go On: MCGI Teatro Kristiano to Produce Christian Drama on TV

After youth members of the Teatro Kristiano, the theatre and dance group of the Members of the Church of God International (MCGI), defied pandemic difficulties to produce short films online, their efforts will soon show on television as well.

The premiere of a drama series depicting lessons from the Bible is slated this year. 

The announcement came from Bro. Daniel Razon, Bro. Eli Soriano’s Assistant Overall Servant in MCGI, who was delighted with the results of  participants of the group’s first online film festival that culminated on July 26th. 

The veteran broadcaster said that the group will produce Christian drama to be aired on the Philippines’ public service channel UNTV, of which he is the CEO. 

“One of the things that we can go along with is that thinking of people who are focused on social media, who are concentrated on watching telenovelas and Korean dramas and other things by offering what they want but from a different angle, from a different perspective,” Bro. Daniel shared in his remarks during the event’s big day.

Bro. Daniel also emphasized valuing one’s duty in the church. “Use your youth to serve God,” Bro. Daniel said. 

Breaking the Ice of Boredom and More

With the theme “Breaking the Ice of Boredom,” Teatro Kristiano members representing their respective regional divisions were tasked to come up with a unique ten-minute digital film without leaving their homes and following health protocols by all means.

Since the beginning of May, members had been coming up with creative ways on how to translate their ideas onto film. The festival received a total of 31 entries. Preliminaries were held on July 12, and the finalists’ films were shown on YouTube on July 26th, coinciding with the awarding ceremony of the event. 

The intent of the festival is to engage its members to express their creativity, exercise brotherly kindness and collaboration, and more importantly, strengthen their faith during the pandemic. However, due accolades were also given to those whose entries shone more brightly than the rest.

Now Showing: Biblical Lessons

The film “Positive” from the North Eastern Mindanao TK members bagged the Best Short Film, Best Screenplay, and Best Teaser awards.

It shows the cautionary tale of a young man who let his boredom at home get the best of him to disobey quarantine policies by the government and do a number of outdoor activities instead. Later on, he showed symptoms of Covid-19, the coronavirus disease.

Though the test result was revealed to be negative in the end, the ordeal of facing the consequences of his actions helped him realize that there are far more things to do to overcome boredom, such as doing one’s duties in the Church, most especially. 

Tagging along as the event’s second placer was “The Call of Duty” whose title spins off from a popular video game. The film from the North America division displays the life of a teenage man who is indulged in playing video games instead of doing his duty as a son and an older brother. But after a turn of events, he later realizes that it’s better to spend his youth with the people and things that truly matter more. 

“Sonder” from the Central Apalit division, which came in third place, demonstrates how this pandemic isn’t all negative, but can lead to valuable realizations in life. 

Apart from the major awards, the event also handed out props to the participants by awarding Best Film Editing, Best Sound, and more.

Bro. Daniel speaks to Teatro Kristiano members about their upcoming project, while stressing the importance of having God in one’s life.

With God’s help and mercy, it was a successful online event from youths who showcased their God-given talents and demonstrated creativity amidst difficulty.

Despite the pandemic, the Teatro Kristiano continuously fulfill their duties by dancing to songs of praise during church services conducted via the internet and satellite. 

The Teatro Kristiano is one of MCGI’s biggest youth groups aimed at praising and worshipping God through the arts of dance and drama. 

Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp.  

(Psalms 149:3, KJV)

Now Playing: Unheard Biblical Truths in Bro. Eli Soriano’s New Podcast

“God wants us to learn exactly the truth that is in the Scriptures.” This is a statement that the Members Church of God International (MCGI) Overall Servant Bro. Eli Soriano often emphasizes when talking about propagating biblical wisdom to all.

To further share the Gospel to as many people as possible, Bro. Eli, together with up-and-coming podcaster Uly Villamin, launched a podcast series called “The Unheard Truth from the Bible” on August 23, 2020 via its website

The podcast series is also available on its mobile app of the same name, which reached the number 1 and number 4 spots in the Apple Podcasts Charts in the Philippines and Canada, respectively. The app is free on both the Apple’s App Store and the Google Play Store

The brand-new religious podcast promises to be unlike the typical sermon-type podcasts found in podcast streaming services today and will be taking after MCGI’s Bible Exposition format. It aims to satisfy biblical doubts and satiate questions of faith sent via chat or phoned in live by its audience. 

From radio, to television, and now, social media, Bro. Eli has been holding live question-and-answer Bible Exposition events and Bible Studies for almost four decades now.

With the help of God, the no-nonsense televangelist continuously finds new platforms to spread God’s truth to the masses even more. And the podcast series aims to bring biblical truths through an online audio show that listeners can tune in live or download past episodes and play on demand.

“Every person is entitled to God’s salvation. But they are being deprived of this chance by pastors, teachers, and preachers of religions.”

“The very will of God is that all men must be saved (1 Tim. 2:4), but they are deprived of their salvation because they are deprived of the truth. They were taught lies, misconceptions, delusions — this is true in almost all religious groups in our time,” explains Bro. Eli during the series’ debut episode. 

Bro. Eli also shared that the act of believing requires prudence, citing 1 John 4:1.

Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

(1 John 4:1, KJV)

With Faith, Hope, and Love, MCGI’s Covid-19 Journey Continues

News about the increasing number of people who die and get infected with Covid-19 globally, with millions of people losing their jobs, have led to the rise of other problems like domestic violence, hunger, depression, and more. 

Consequently, this has created a strong feeling of uncertainty that leaves many anxious and disquieted. However, the world now is also seeing the emergence of “a shadow pandemic of psychological and societal injuries.”

And while Covid-19 continues to affect the lives of people, directly and indirectly, the Members Church of God International (MCGI) have learned to seek and find comfort in biblical truths, especially in these dark times:

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. 

(Philippians 4:6-7, King James Version)

The coronavirus continues to take its toll on everyone around the world — physically, mentally, and financially.

That is why on May 25, 2020, MCGI launched the Global Prayer for Humanity so that those who are in distressful situations may find hope, comfort, and solace in praying to God. Everyone is invited to participate regardless of their religious affiliation.

“A prayer said with love is very loud to be ignored by the Almighty.” —@broelisoriano  

Another important message of the Scriptures that MCGI hopes to impart is to keep on doing good to one another, which is highlighted on this special page that narrates the Church’s journey as it navigates through this global pandemic.

In Words and In Deeds: Continuing the Advocacies

The page shows how and why MCGI Overall Servants Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon have been doubling their efforts in preaching the Gospel during the pandemic.

“On our end, our primary aim is to share with the people the teachings of God and the Lord Jesus Christ written in the Bible,” said Bro. Eli.

MCGI’s Special Covid-19 Page goes online. The web page highlights stories of front-liner Church members, MCGI’s relentless relief efforts during the pandemic, and even biblical facts related to good hygiene and quarantine measures.

In reaching out to their fellowmen, MCGI also continuously conduct Covid-19-related relief efforts, such as distributing food supplies and sponsoring personal protective equipment for front-liners.

Upon the instruction of Bro. Eli, Bro. Daniel Razon — who is known in the Philippines as a trailblazer in the field of broadcasting with UNTV news and rescue and drone journalism as his brainchildren — also set up a digital clinic that runs 24/7. 

He also launched the program Serbisyong Bayanihan (Service Through Cooperative Efforts) on UNTV, which aims to assist callers with their various concerns during the lockdown.

“We know that we have a moral obligation to do good deeds unto all men. That is why we in the Church of God International, with God’s help, are doing our best in augmenting the needs of our fellowmen,” said Bro. Eli.

12 Years of Praise: MCGI 24/7 Chorale Celebrates Anniversary with First Digital Convention

For twelve years now, the MCGI 24/7 Chorale has been continuing the practice of the first servants of God more than 2,000 years ago — of singing songs of praise to God nonstop. 

And these are the singers, chief of the fathers of the Levites, who remaining in the chambers were free: for they were employed in that work day and night.

(1 Chronicles 9:33, KJV)

The group held its first digital convention this August for its anniversary celebration since the launch of the endeavor on August 9, 2008. Taking inspiration from 1 Chronicles 9:33, MCGI Overall Servants Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon set up the means and schedules needed for the task. 

Regional choral groups from different parts of the globe sing during their set schedule for each day, so that in a span of 24 hours, there is unceasing singing of praises unto God.

The digital assembly featured a video flashback to see how far the chorale has come in 12 years with the Lord’s help and guidance. In his opening remarks, Bro. Daniel recalled how the chorale started with only eight members and eventually grew to 12,000 and expanded to Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Australia, and North America as the years passed by.

Audio-video presentations from different regions of the globe were played as choir members participated online from their homes via live video conferencing.

“The best part was when we were singing our song of praise “Wala ng Iba” (No Other), because this song is very timely considering the situation we are facing right now. Wala ng Iba means that in these trying times, there is no other person we can lean on and can help us to get through this difficult situation but only our Father in the heavens,” said Bro. Redgie Tuazon, a choir member from  Melbourne, Australia.

Old Practice, New Means

Amid the world’s ongoing pandemic, MCGI chorale members have also learned to be adept not only with the melody, lyrics, and choreography of a song, but their technical knowhow in mobile apps as well. 

They have also equipped themselves with white backdrops, sturdier phone stands, and better recording equipment as part of their commitment to their duties before the Lord. 

Choir members from New York, USA performing their 24/7 duty during their designated times lot through video conferencing app, Zoom.

Despite their distance from each other and though in different time zones, participants of the digital convention on August 2 were glad to share their time and talents with their fellow choristers. 

“I have always been taking part in the MCGI Chorale’s 24/7 Anniversary for 5 years now, but the 12th Anniversary was different, because we get to feel singing together by spirit, and it was an emotional experience knowing that I’ve made the right choice in remaining in this committee,” said Sis. Allizon Grace Dorosan from Laguna, Philippines

The High Notes of the Convention

“My favorite part of the event was when Kuya Daniel started to share new learnings and wisdom from the Bible with God’s help in relation to singing praises. We all have the right to sing praises to God, even if we don’t have a good voice. As long as we sing praises to Him from our hearts, He’ll always be delighted,” remarked Bro. Edward Ballecer from Bulacan, Philippines.

Bro. Daniel reminded the brethren of the importance of singing, because music is something that will go on in heaven, and that singing is a God-given talent whose purpose should be used properly.

He also stressed the virtue of humility, that no matter how many achievements people receive, they must always remain humble. “Let us be humble in the sight of God, let us ask for His help constantly,” said Bro. Daniel. 

In MCGI, each gathering begins and ends with a song of praise to God. As Bro. Eli said during one of MCGI’s weekly Thanksgiving celebrations, “This is a way for us to delight God in heaven.” 

The event drew to a close with participants seen on screens cheering and clapping, reminded of and reinvigorated by the biblical reasons for what they have been doing nonstop.

MCGI Hosts Second Online Live Mass Indoctrination

The Members Church of God International (MCGI) has begun the second batch of online Live Mass Indoctrination through its YouTube channels, Ang Dating Daan and The Old Path, on August 3. Through this, MCGI Overall Servants Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon hope to reach more people wanting to learn God’s teachings in the Bible and become part of the Church.

It was on June 2020 that MCGI had its first-ever online Mass Indoctrination. Through its YouTube channels and other social media pages, the event was broadcasted and translated in some of the world’s major languages.

The online mass indoctrination enables people staying at their homes to listen to Bro. Eli’s discussion on the fundamental Christian doctrines written in the Bible without much hiderances and distractions.

Knowing the truth

In the Live Mass Indoctrination, the listeners are taught of the true teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ, which are all being observed by the members of the Church of God International. It is a must that those who want to be members of the Church of God understand and accept all the doctrines of Christ. Complete attendance in the indoctrination sessions is also a requisite before they could accept the Holy Baptism.

The month-long indoctrination sessions cover discussions of different topics that teach people how to lead a life that is in accordance with the teachings of God and the Lord Jesus Christ — a kind of life that is expected of a real Christian. In his discussions, Bro. Eli, as always, never fails to cite verses from the Bible to prove his point.

With the help of God, the listeners will also be able to see the glaring differences between the biblical truths that Bro. Eli discusses and the erroneous teaching of false preachers as he cites the unbiblical doctrines of other religions who claim to be Christians. This way, the listeners are able to compare the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ being upheld in the Church of God.

Gospel propagation unhampered

Writing notes about the topic, whether by pen-and-paper or typing onto electronic gadgets, is a usual sight in MCGI gatherings. 

Apart from the online Mass Indoctrination, MCGI’s Overall Servants have spearheaded many other propagation efforts for mankind such as the Worldwide Bible Expositions and a weekly Worldwide Bible Study online.

The online Mass Indoctrination follows the format of these regular events; Bro. Eli will be discussing indoctrination topics from Monday through Thursday, and come Friday, he will answer questions coming from his listeners about the topics that were discussed, in real-time.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, MCGI has imposed safety measures to shield the congregation and the non-members from possible infection. Propagation efforts, as well as major and minor Church activities, are all conducted online.

The Live Mass Indoctrination is now ongoing and is streamed on all of the Church’s official social media platforms. For questions about indoctrination, please reach MCGI here.

MCGI Sends Relief to Pandemic-Stricken Latin America

The Members Church of God International (MCGI) has conducted a series of relief operations in pandemic-stricken countries in Latin America where cases of Covid-19 continue to surge. Although the Church is also reeling from the brunt of the pandemic, it continues to dole out basic necessities to communities which have been hit hard by the health crisis, especially on households that have lost their source of income.

Help reaches Central America

MCGI volunteers in Central America have brought food and supplies to families in La Majada, Honduras where Covid-19 is getting worse, following the collapse of the health care system. The volunteers, all Church members, delivered relief assistance using their own vehicles, observing all the safety protocols while distributing the goods.

The MCGI locale in Tegucigalpa, Honduras was kept open so that the members and the non-members who passed by can get free food. Although road travel was restricted, brethren were still able to conduct food relief operations for those who cannot come to the locale.

“Suministros de socorro” (relief goods) neatly packed and arranged, ready for distribution.

In Mexico City, MCGI volunteers handed groceries to families in Ixtapaluca and Villa Victoria. Brethren who joined the cause in San Jose, Costa Rica observed the proper wearing of PPE. The brethren in Managua, Nicaragua also offered help in the relief operations in their area.

Efforts replicated in Western and Northern Latin America

The Western and Northern parts of Latin America also suffered from the impact of the pandemic. Both La Paz and El Alto Bolivia are under quarantine and strict curfew hours. Persons and vehicles are not allowed on the streets beyond 6 pm. Food relief operations were not hampered, however. MCGI workers and brethren teamed up to reach remote areas and donated groceries both to members and non-members of the Church.

Similar efforts have been done in the districts of Barranquilla and Santa Marta Colombia, Barcelona, Bogota, Cali, Giron, Medellin Colombia, and Riobamba Ecuador.

A few of the many recipients of groceries and food items in Latin America. Most who were given supplies are the elderly and those who have lost their jobs due to the pandemic.

In Brazil where the highest number of Covid-19 infections in South America is recorded, many people have decided to stay at home due to fears of getting infected. Nevertheless, MCGI conducted similar efforts of relief distribution. Coordinating centers in Benfica, Campo Grande, and Jacarepagua were opened to accommodate both members and non-members in need of food. In Florianopolis, MCGI worked with SOMAR Floripa in ensuring that food assistance will be given to the neediest in the city.

About 300 bags of ‘basico necessidade’ (basic necessities) were donated to SOMAR Floripa, a government office in Florianopolis that carries out voluntary works.

Outreach programs are a part of MCGI’s public service activities. Across the world, MCGI chapters organize on a regular basis various charitable and relief efforts, which include medical and dental missions, blood donation, disaster relief missions, orphanage visitations, soup kitchens for the homeless, to name a few. All these are free of charge.

MCGI Uses Instagram as Virtual Outreach Platform for Members

While many turn to Instagram for their daily fix of photos and videos from people and brands they love, members of the Church of God International (MCGI) can now use the social media app to give and seek help for fellow members in need through MCGIOnline.

MCGIOnline is a private account exclusive to church members. It serves as a virtual outreach for brethren through the Serbisyong Kapatiran (Brotherly Service) program  livestreamed on weeknights from 10 to 11 PHT.

MCGI Overall Servants Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon launched the service in their desire to deliver the Gospel’s message of hope to all men, especially in these trying times. It also serves as an avenue in helping church members around the globe.

The program, which premiered on June 29, 2020, and offers various segments that range from the medical to the musical.

Physically Distant, Spiritually Close

One of the program’s segments is where doctors from the UNTV Digital Clinic assess a member’s health condition for free through the platform’s video conferencing feature. 

Whether it’s the flu or something that requires more medical attention, members get the full benefits of expert opinion coupled with biblical advice on health practices.

On the A Song of Praise segment, a selected member gets to sing their favorite song of praise and express the reasons why the song resonates with them.

Brethren from Australia send Bro. Daniel warm greetings during the Serbisyong Kapatiran on July 14, 2020.

There is also a Kristiano Drama (Christian Drama) series, also called KDRama that shows how biblical lessons can improve everyday situations and solve problems in life.

From different parts of the world, members are also able to send messages of love to one another and to Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel, all in one platform. 

Bro. Daniel hosts the program from the Philippines and is joined by Bro. Eli on Fridays when the international evangelist is free after a series of Bible Exposition and Mass Indoctrination services in Latin America during the week. 

Modern Means, Same Old Brotherly Love

Citing Hebrews 10:24-25, Overall Servants of MCGI stress the importance of staying connected to help strengthen one another’s faith, especially in these trying times. 

And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: 

Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

(Hebrews 10:24-25, KJV) 

Because of the advancement of technology and social media, members are able to see each other and find out their conditions even if they are in the opposite sides of the world. 

While the Bible mentions that the Apostle Paul communicated and learned about the members’ conditions through the exchange of hand-written letters, Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel have expressed their gratitude to the Lord because of the modern means of communication available now. 

Through the advancement of technology, they can not only hear the members’ voices, but also see the smiles on their faces.

MCGI Music Channel Launches 24-Hour Streaming of Praise Songs

mcgi-music-channel-24-hour-streaming-of-praise-songs

The MCGI Music Ministry launched a 24-hour livestream of praise songs through its YouTube channel on June 28 this year.

The latest feature added via the MCGI Music Channel is aimed at giving Church members an easier access to Church songs and hymns that they can listen to anytime, anywhere across the world using their internet-connected desktop computers or mobile devices.

The official MCGI Music Channel on YouTube aims to provide free access to hundreds of Church and praise songs not only to the members of the Church of God but also to the general public. Gospel songs categorized into playlists, such as “Joyful Songs,” “Solemn Songs,” and “Prayer Songs,” can be played on the YouTube channel.

The MCGI Music Channel has also made available a playlist of original compositions by Bro. Daniel Razon, the Assistant Overall Servant of MCGI. Bro. Daniel, who is an Awit Awards winner, has composed many gospel songs such as “Hiling ng Puso,” “Kay Palad Ko,” “Lahat Ng Bagay,” and “Alay Sa ‘Yo,” to name a few.

The importance of singing praise songs to God

During a thanksgiving celebration on August 9, 2008, MCGI Overall Servants Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon announced before the congregation the launch of the 24/7 prayer service and the non-stop singing of praises to God.

The nonstop singing to God is based on 1 Chronicles 9:33, which reads:

“Those who were musicians, heads of Levite families, stayed in the rooms of the temple and were exempt from other duties because they were responsible for the work day and night.”

mcgi-music-channel-24-hour-streaming-of-praise-songs

“There should be prayer and singing in the whole world 24 hours a day, so that prayers and praises to God will be non-stop,” said Bro. Eli in the said event.

Hence, on August 10, 2008, MCGI marked the launch of the regular nonstop singing to God activity. This was spearheaded by the MCGI Chorale that consists of thousands of Music Ministry members across the globe. During its inception and prior to the pandemic, the ADD Convention Center in Apalit, Pampanga, served as the main venue where MCGI Chorale members — in batches and by schedule — would sing praise songs and hymns 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

mcgi-music-channel-24-hour-streaming-of-praise-songs
The Bible application Omega DigiBible also streams the 24/7 Community Prayer of MCGI. The application is available on Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

On June 27, 2011, MCGI Overall Servants also launched a special website to ensure that congregants from different parts of the world can conveniently join the 24/7 Community Prayer and sing along to the nonstop praise songs emanating from Pampanga. This online service was also subsequently added to the official MCGI mobile app. Today, the official website of MCGI hosts the Community Prayer page.

Despite the lockdowns and restrictions on mass gatherings, the nonstop singing to God still continues to this day with the aid of modern technology and with the help and mercy of God.

MCGI Launches 24/7 Multilingual Community Prayer

mcgi-community-prayer-24-7-hourly-praying-multilingual-english-tagalog-spanish-portuguese-every-hour-prayer

The Members Church of God International (MCGI) has launched its 24/7 multilingual community prayer broadcast with hourly schedules to encourage more people around the globe to pray to God in their own tongue.

Bro. Daniel Razon, Assistant Overall Servant of MCGI, made the announcement over a live Instagram broadcast to have the 24/7 Community Prayer Broadcast  in different languages for brethren in different countries to connect in prayers from their respective homes. The MCGI community prayer now has four available live prayer translations, English, Tagalog, Portuguese and Spanish within top of the hour. More languages will be available soon.

Why pray?

During one Thanksgiving event, MCGI Overall Servant Bro. Eli Soriano emphasized that Christians must live a prayerful life and must “improve in prayer.” Praying is a basic doctrine in MCGI. It is an act by which we humble ourselves before our Creator and a way of showing Him our gratitude and appreciation for His loving kindness. It is also through prayers that we are able to express our requests to God. This was mentioned by St. Paul in his letter to the Philippians, which stated: “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” (Philippians 4:6, KJV)

Aside from the hourly prayer, the new multilingual service plays non-stop songs of praise and worship to God, also rendered in several languages.

Prayer, a must

When the cases of Covid-19 spiked around the world, Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel saw it fit to deal with the crisis not just by implementing health and safety protocols for all members of the Church, but also by continuously seeking God’s help and mercy through prayers.

The Global Prayer for Humanity which is in its second month now, was launched to meet the purpose. This is on top of the regular community prayer broadcast that is streaming round-the-clock. The Global Prayer for Humanity service begins at 9:30 p.m., Philippine Time.

This endeavor invites non-members regardless of race, ethnicity, and religion to share a few minutes of their time to participate and offer prayers to God to invoke His divine intervention in the present global health crisis brought about by Covid-19.

Previously, the community prayer broadcast was streamed on selected hours using only English and Filipino languages. But with the new Multilingual Community Prayer accessible via the MCGI website,  brethren across the globe can join in the prayer in their own language right at the comfort of their homes.

MCGI’s La Verdad Christian College Goes Online this School Year 2020-2021

mcgi-la-verdad-christian-college-free-education-online-school-2020-2021

The La Verdad Christian College (LVCC), a private school owned and funded by the Members Church of God International (MCGI), will be welcoming its students for school year 2020-2021 this August without opening its gates. Instead, the school will be launching its very own learning management system (LMS) that will host all classes and other vital services for students online.

The months of March to May saw the closure of schools because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Many were caught off-guard and have grappled with conducting online classes for the remaining school calendar days since social distancing had to be strictly observed. According to the Philippines’ Commission on Higher Education (CHED), only 20% of state universities and colleges (SUCs) are equipped with their own learning management system which could allow them to conduct online classes. The remaining percentage still relies on face-to-face class interaction.

With the introduction of the learning management system to La Verdad’s current setup, the students as well as the teaching and non-teaching personnel will be kept safe from possible local transmission of the deadly viral disease.

MCGI.ORG CLEAVE TO WHAT IS GOOD
