Read short testimonials of faith from some of MCGI’s youngest brethren baptized on May 22, 2015 at the ADD Convention Center in Apalit, Pampanga.
I felt that I was being called to join here.
My mother and father are both members. Papa already passed away. He became a member in 2004, while mama was in 2010.
[In the Kawan ng Cordero or KNC], what I cannot forget learning is Proverbs 22:6 which says: Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
I felt so happy, and very light inside.
I hope they will continue the good works they do, so they will be able to lead many more people like us.
Since I grew up in the Church and already know the teachings, I realized that I should become a member already.
Ever since daddy and mama became members, as well as my siblings, I have been in the KNC starting from a very young age.
All [the doctrines] are based in the Bible. Everything has an explanation. Also, whatever thing you wish to ask, Bro. Eli will be able to answer [through the Bible].
I felt super light, like I had no worries.
I hope that they will be able to lead many more people to join here.
I already know that the doctrines are true. Also, that I may be able to do works that I know will be for my own good.
My parents have long been members, and I would go with them [to Church services].
I felt enlightened ever so clearly. My knowledge about things I didn’t know before also increased.
I felt so light, like I was flying. And I didn’t feel any worries because all my past sins have already been forgiven.
Thanks be to God because He gave you to teach us.
I really wanted to, and because of my parents as well. Also, this is where I grew up.
At first, I couldn’t express what I was feeling. All I know is that I was happy. I can’t say anything except that I’m exceedingly happy.
All that Bro. Eli says are in the Bible. I hope that Bro. Eli will be able to come home because he’s long been there. We miss Bro. Eli already.
I just wanted my sins to be forgiven, because in other religions, it’s different. Their teachings are really different with that of Bro. Eli’s.
I live in Cavite. I’m a housemate. I only watch [Bro. Eliseo’s program] when I have no more work to do.
I’ve been [watching] for a long time. My first boss was a member of The Old Path [the Church of God International].
[Concerning indoctrination], I was very happy about it because what Bro. Eli teaches is true. I’ve heard [him] on television. I really listened to it first that’s why I joined.
I’m happy. I felt really happy.
Many thanks to Bro. Eli. I’m really happy that I became a member because of the true doctrines.
My older sister has long been a member, as well as my mother.
When my mother passed away, she told me, “Join here, my daughter, because this is good.” When she died, I obeyed her…
My older sister also encouraged me. She’s a choir member in their locale in EDSA Muñoz, as was my mother in Las Piñas. I was with her in Las Piñas. Now I’m in Cavite, in the Locale of Molino.
[The doctrines are] really good. I understood what the Catholic priests weren’t saying. In mass for example, those things are not explained.
After or before communion, though I didn’t eat it, [the priest] would tell stories already, and that’s all. He doesn’t speak things about the Bible.
I felt light. It’s like your feet weren’t touching the concrete. You were walking, but it’s like your feet kept on searching for a ground to walk on.
For Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel, oh how pleasant your teachings are in the Bible! I really can’t say anything about them. Many thanks, many thanks to God that I was baptized this day. It’s my birthday today.
My mother is already a member, and I see [certain things in] her. She also wants me to be a member, so I joined as well.
[On Bro. Eli’s teachings,] all questions have answers, and they all come from the Bible.
I felt light inside.
I’m thankful because he teaches from the Bible.
I really like the way Bro. Eli leads. It was only last month when I [first heard Bro. Eli]. It’s good. We understood every teaching. He really explains it well.
I felt happy and light.
Continue it; we’ll support him. That’s all. [laughs]
I have been seeing this before, but I didn’t pay attention to it. And it’s because of what other people or my family might think or say about me.
Then, it seemed like I have been called a few times already, but I didn’t respond [every time], so I was bombarded with problems.
One time my friend brought me [to the indoctrination], but I didn’t pursue it so I had problems again.
Years passed by and I still didn’t give it time. Then lately, as I watched the program continually, it was like I had a dream again saying, “You’re very hard-headed.” So I took it seriously from then on.
I can’t interpret it much, but [in the dream] I was doing something. Perhaps, this is it. This is where I found it. I can’t explain it. All I know is that there were many people before me.
I felt somewhat light. I also wished for something back there, but it’s for the better.
I hope that they will be able to teach me that I may teach others as well… May he continue to be guided by the Holy Spirit…
I felt that this is the true Church. Also, it’s unlike others that… I really felt that this is the one. I also wanted to change my life.
My uncle and aunt would take me [to Church gatherings]. Then, [I listened] on TV and on radio, and through every other means like on the Internet and in Bible Expositions.
I have been going with them since 2010. This year, I felt that it was time already.
The feeling was so light, like I was a new man. I felt clean, and as if I was floating on air. That’s how it felt.
I hope that they will be able to continue with God’s mercy. I hope that they will be able to help many more people like me.
