Read short testimonials of faith from some of MCGI’s youngest brethren baptized on December 11, 2015 at the Ang Dating Daan Convention Center in Apalit, Pampanga.
This was introduced to us by my elder brother. In the beginning, I just went with him because he was family. Actually, he accompanied us [him and members of his family] on the first day of the indoctrination.
He didn’t come with us however the second time around. We were actually looking for him and was wondering why he didn’t accompany us anymore. So that time, we decided to go to the locale on our own anyway because our interest was piqued with what we had heard the first time.
I first heard Bro. Eli in 2006, I think. I had affiliated myself with the INC, and I had heard about Bro. Eli then because they were bashing him so I got intrigued.

I was there (INC) for three years but I didn’t get baptized. I couldn’t stand their doctrines. There was a part of the teachings where I wasn’t convinced.
Perhaps another reason why I didn’t get baptized there was for me to have a chance to think that there is a true church outside them.
In the past three years that I’ve been listening there, you could say that I have already memorized what they are saying. Perhaps God willed for me to not be baptized there so I could join another.
When we were in line to be baptized, I was praying. I felt nervous and I didn’t know why.
When the Church worker was already speaking, I was crying already. I don’t know why, but when I got immersed and then out of the water, I felt that I lost some weight.
It feels so good inside, except for the cold water. [Laughs] It’s such a pleasant feeling, as if all the burdens in my chest were gone, and my being a hard-headed person as well. If I only could go through that again and again. [Chuckles]
More power to them. I hope that I will get to see them, even just once. I hope that the propagation of the Gospel of God will grow wider. I pray that all the intents of their hearts come true.
I had many wrongdoings before, and I want to change. I want to be saved when the time comes.
It was my wife who always listened to Bro. Eli at first. She actually became a member ahead of me.
Even when the baptism rite hasn’t started yet, I already felt nervous in my chair. Then, when the time came when I knelt in the water, I just felt my tears fall from my eyes.
I hope that the Lord will give them longer lives that they may be able to continue the works they have started, and in turn, many more will return unto the Lord.
I want my soul to be cleansed. It’s because of my aunt that I got to listen to Bro. Eli. Sometimes I would watch on television, but I started listening [religiously] last year.
The doctrines are true and Bro. Eli preaches the truth.
I feel okay. Somehow, I feel relieved inside.
I hope that they will continue doing what they do. I also hope that they may last longer on earth, so that they can preach more the word of God.
Because I believe in Bro. Eli’s doctrines. I was able to watch through UNTV since last year.
His teachings are very clear, and he’s telling the truth. The doctrines are very unique and I believe that his doctrines are different, exceptional.
It feels great. I felt like as if I were in the clouds. [Laughs] It’s like the Spirit is with you.
They are gifts from God. I love them so much. Bro. Eli is life-like Jesus Christ.
