Bro. Danhill Afable, 22, Former Catholic, Manila

On Joining the Church of God

It’s the teachings. I watch Bro. Eli on TV, and I saw the wrong teachings, things that Catholicism does.

I’ve long been listening, but I have only listened intently and religiously for a few months now.

On Being Baptized

It feels light inside, and I really felt like crying because I realized all of my sins. It really feels light because you feel like you have been truly washed.

[I joined] to serve as an example as well to my parents. My papa was the one who invited me to listen to [Bro. Eliseo], but I was the one to be first baptized here.

On Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon

Many thanks to the teachings that you teach. They preach the truth that they know.

Sis. Aira Mendoza, 22, Former Catholic, Pampanga Province

On Joining the Church of God

I know that this is the right one, that this is the truth.

My papa was the first one to become a member, and my other siblings as well with God’s mercy.

I have long been listening and I’ve actually been indoctrinated before but didn’t push through with baptism as there were still many temptations then. Now with God’s mercy, I was able to finish it.

Actually, now I suffer from depression, and I feel like I’m still fighting it now. I still have questions in my mind, but I fight it.

On Being Baptized

I feel light; I feel so light inside.

On Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon

To Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel, I know that they are the true ones sent by God. They know the truth.

I hope that they will live longer lives. I also hope that many more people will be able to listen to them for their hearts to be opened and their minds be aware that the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is near. Just a little more time of waiting left, and everything will be all right.

Bro. Miguel and Sis. Rosanna Falcon, 71 & 53, Former Catholics, Manila

On Joining the Church of God

Bro. Miguel: Firstly, whenever I watch Bro. Eli I always hear from him the word “love”. When you have love of fellowmen, you keep in mind that what you do to your fellowmen, you also do to the Lord.

Also, in every question asked him, he reads the Bible for answers. He doesn’t give his own interpretation, but it is the Bible that speaks.

Sis. Rosanna: I feel in myself that my heart is content with the teachings because everything that Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel say is in the Bible. Also, they explain it and I understand it well.

I felt scared to not join because I discovered that worshipping idols is prohibited in the Bible. I was really a devout before in Catholicism, but when I knew that bowing down to graven images is wrong, it changed me; I found the truth here.

Of course, I want to become close to God because He is the true God. Even though I didn’t see Him, and truth is, nobody has, but we believe in Him.

And that is true love. Although you don’t see Him, you obey His great commandment of loving God above all.

On Being Baptized

Bro. Miguel: Actually when I was being baptized, I felt that there was a bit of heat by my head. It was as if I was partly seeing the light of salvation.

Sis. Rosanna: For me, I didn’t hesitate obeying because I was really scared of not being baptized. The truth is here and you feel that the teachings are really true. It feels good inside, like I felt cold and relieved.

On Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon

Bro. Miguel: For Bro. Eli, I hope that he be given good health, a longer life and above all, may he be able to help the brethren more.

Sis. Rosanna: Many thanks for his perseverance in opening all to the true Christian faith. May Bro. Eli’s and Bro. Daniel’s lives be longer that they may be able to help more people like us.

Bro. Harvey Bonite, 34, Former Catholic, Bulacan Province

On Joining the Church of God

I started hearing from Bro. Eli the things about Catholicism and the idol-worship. I then wondered why people are bowing and worshipping graven images even though the latter cannot hear, speak, nor walk, as Bro. Eli said.

Deep within me, I asked, “Yes, why are people like that?” Since man was given the gift of choice, that’s when I started to ponder about things. “Why do people worship idols when the Bible prohibits it?”

That’s when I watched the television program and heard everything that Bro. Eli has to say. Time went by and I felt relieved whenever listening, and now I’m here, baptized; I didn’t want to delay it any further.

On Being Baptized

I am happy. I feel light inside because I used to have many sins before. When I was in Catholicism, all kinds of vices were available, because there were no prohibitions. It’s only here through Bro. Eli that I heard what the Bible do not approve of.

Also, thinking about it, it’s only here that I felt light, that my being became happy. I am glad, and my heart is content.

On Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon

Bro. Eli, if you are [reading] this, I am thankful for your patience in teaching all men to understand the word of God.

I am thankful that I am one of those chosen by God to become a member. Please, be patient with us. May the Lord give you a longer live and heal you of all sickness.

To God be the glory
