Read short testimonials of faith from some of MCGI’s youngest brethren baptized on November 27, 2015 at the Ang Dating Daan Convention Center in Apalit, Pampanga.

Bro. Dario Saludo, 68, Former Catholic, Manila

On Joining the Church of God

I watch on television and listen to Bro. Eli daily. I felt as if he was the one who invited me to attend the Bible Exposition, and the Mass Indoctrination after that.

I continued with it because it was good, and I felt relieved.

On Being Baptized

I am so very happy. I feel as if my heart is oh so clean, like I don’t have any sins anymore.

It’s a pleasant feeling. When I got immersed in the water, I was trembling and cried afterwards. Perhaps it’s the Spirit of God.

On Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon

Bro. Eli is a really good preacher. Everything he says is true; he doesn’t mingle it with word-mongering.

What he says is in the Bible. So when someone asks him a question, it’s the Bible that answers. He won’t answer just any answer, and that’s what encouraged me. The teaching is good — I learn from it.

Firstly, I knew God. Secondly, I learned the things that the Holy Spirit prohibits, which I didn’t learn from Catholicism. I just did whatever things I could and wanted to do.

Now I ceased from drinking, smoking, gambling, and listening to rumors. Though we live near a squatter’s area, I refrain from all of those things.

I’m wholeheartedly thankful that I became a member of The Old Path, of the Church of God.

Bro. Jeffrey Gaw, 37, Former Born Again Christian, Manila

On Joining the Church of God

As I was researching about religion, the time came when I found Bro. Eli on television, on UNTV.

I liked what I was hearing; it’s really from the Bible, and that became my basis. A person can just speak whatever he wants, so what matters is what he is speaking and where it is from.

On Being Baptized

It’s mixed emotions, but I’m happy. What’s most delightful about it is that I know that I have finally obeyed what the Lord wants.

On Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon

Thank you Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel, because if it weren’t for you, we would not be enlightened. Above all, I thank God. To God be all the praise and thanks for all that they do.

Sis. Hanna Mari Galang, 15, KNC, Manila

On Joining the Church of God

You will truly believe that [what is preached here] are the teachings of God. Also, no one can refute what he [Bro. Eliseo] is saying.

On Being Baptized

I feel happy. Thanks be to God

Now, I have a duty because when you’re not yet baptized, it’s like you are a non-bonafide participant. When you are a member already, it feels that your service is counted all the more.

On Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon

May the Lord keep you and may you be able to propagate the word of God more. Thanks be to God.

Bro. Christian Mark Dulnoan, 15, KNC, Manila

On Joining the Church of God

I have long been listening to the teachings, and I feel that my conscience is urging me to join already.

The pull of worldly acts is great outside the Church, and so to strengthen my faith more, I listened to the doctrines. It’s like having a duty in the Church as well as keeping the teachings in our hearts.

On Being Baptized

Of course I feel blessed. Thanks be to God. I have repented of the sins I have done. I have a new life.

On Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon

Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel, I hope that your lives will be longer. May He give you more strength every day. I hope that Bro. Eli will also be able to return here in the Philippines. Thanks be to God.

Bro. Alex Ernaldo, 49, Former Catholic, Bicol Province

On Joining the Church of God

I was invited by my boss to attend the indoctrination. After that, I went here. I liked the explanation of Bro. Eli. The teachings he preaches are really in the Bible.

On Being Baptized

It’s only now that I’ve been baptized and my body feels light.

On Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon

Bro. Eli, I’m thankful that I met you as you are one of the servants of our Father God. Because of that, my boss was able to invite me to attend the indoctrination. Now, I’ve been baptized. I’m really glad with the many things that have happened in my life.

Bro. Rolan Eguia, 43, Former Catholic, Cavite Province

On Joining the Church of God

Bro. Jose Buenaventura invited me to listen on television, on the Internet and on Youtube. And all I can say is that everything is based in the Bible. All I know is that it’s in the Bible, and I believe that that is what is true.

On Being Baptized

I feet light. I’m actually focused what is said in the doctrines that I’m a new man, that I must not return to my evil works in the past.

On Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon

I hope that God will give them longer lives that they may be able to preach the word of God more and that many others will be lead unto The Old Path [the Church of God International]

Bro. Samuel Infante, 53, Former Abrahamic Faith, Cavite Province

On Joining the Church of God

I saw this through television on UNTV Channel 37 and heard about it on radio via La Verdad 1350.

Compared to other programs I’ve heard before, this is different. It’s the one that gave explanations on verses that are enough for me to be convinced and believe.

On Being Baptized

Before, I have been baptized as well and was immersed in water, but I didn’t feel anything.

However, I’ve been crying since baptism and I don’t know why. I can’t explain it. I’m happy to have experienced that.

On Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon

I’m thankful because they served as a bridge for me to know the Lord. Firstly, my thanks is to the Lord as I have long been searching for Him, and it’s only through the both of them that I found the Lord.

Sis. Cynthia B. Santiago, 51, Former Catholic, Manila

On Joining the Church of God

I heard about this through my husband on radio and UNTV since long ago, about 2008.

I have undergone indoctrination before, but I wasn’t able to finish it because of work. Perhaps, it wasn’t yet time. But with God’s mercy, He willed for me to be baptized now; my husband got baptized first.

This is where I really found the true teachings of the Bible that we did not see in other religions. In Catholicism, the Bible is not taught as it is in here. So our minds were opened to things of the Lord.

On Being Baptized

I feel happy and relieved inside. The feeling is just different knowing that my husband and I are now members of the Church of God.

On Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon

All I can say to Bro. Daniel is happy 32nd birthday. To the both of them, many thanks.

I hope that you will have longer lives that many people’s minds will be opened about the Bible, and become members as well. Please continue this kind of work. May you have longer lives.

Sis. Cristita Cuna, 69, Former Catholic, Laguna Province

On Joining the Church of God

In Catholicism, it’s different. Their take on the Bible is different. It’s like Catholicism doesn’t care what is written in the Bible, but just preaches what they want to preach.

On Being Baptized

I’m happy. I have no problems actually. All I know is that I’m really enjoying finally being here. I know that this is the truth from the Bible.

On Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon

Of course I’m happy that I have found the righteous way in the Bible. Thanks be to God, because of them, I have learned the truth.

To God be the glory
