Newly Baptized Testimonials: December 24, 2015

Read short testimonials of faith from some of MCGI’s youngest brethren on December 24, 2015 at the Ang Dating Daan Convention Center in Apalit, Pampanga.

Bro. Gil Alonzo, 62, Former Catholic, Manila

On Joining the Church of God

This is where I heard the words of God in the Bible.

I had a friend in Quezon City who lead me here to eventually join the Church of God. He’s Bro. Domingo Cabido; he’s about nine years in the Church already.

We always bumped into each other in a corner somewhere; we are friends. Now, he invited me once to attend a Church gathering. I said, “I’ll see first before I decide as deciding is difficult.”

When I went there, I saw that I liked Bro. Eli’s preaching. So I continued from then on. I didn’t have any doubts anymore. As fate would have it, there was an indoctrination scheduled at the time, so I went straight to it.

On Being Baptized

I am happy because I have finally done what I have yearned for all my life.

On Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon

May they continue the preaching that they do.

~o~

Bro. Jose Collano, 65, Former Born Again Member, Manila

On Joining the Church of God

It’s because of the teachings. That is what I followed here. I learned about this on TV, and I found that Bro. Eli’s teachings are better than those of other religions I have been in.

I have been listening for a long time, about a year already. I have long been looking for this, but I have found it only now. It was at the Locale of Bagbag where I went to first, but then I found one that was near our place.

On Being Baptized

Oh, it feels good. It really feels good inside. I felt such a relief.

On Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon

All I can say is, I became a believer because of those words that Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel preached. To God be the glory.

Bro. Gonzalo Cordova Jr., 42, Former Born Again Member, Manila

On Joining the Church of God

This is the right one. This is the truth.

On Being Baptized

Oh, I’m so, so happy! It feels good; it’s inexplicable.

I also experienced being baptized in a Born Again group, but the feeling wasn’t like this. My head just got wet there. But here, I felt different.

Also, even before the baptism rite, you will see that the doctrines are really something else already.

I mean, the doctrines are great! No other religion has taught these. I’ve been to the INC, in the Born Again, in Catholicism; all of those groups, I’ve investigated their doctrines, but I found nothing.

– – –

Our eldest brother has been here in the Church for 10 years now, Bro. Rene Cordova from the Locale of Nagcarlan, Laguna.

Actually, we used to mock him. We are nine brethren and the eight of us would go against him.

My father is a Catholic devotee, while one of my siblings is a Born Again devotee because she wed an American who is preacher, a pastor. We have different religions in our home. My other sister is an Iglesia ni Cristo member.

We would debate with each other, but my brother already had wisdom. As our eldest, we respected him. But [after being baptized in the Church of God], when he spoke, it was like he was a different person.

– – –

His views are now different. He doesn’t easily get angry. It’s just, he’s different now.

Before, we thought it was just nothing. We thought he changed because he was just already old.

My brother and I are close, him being the eldest and me being the youngest. We are always together, except when it comes to this.

Now, before he left for Manila, my wife and I watched Bro. Eli’s program once on UNTV. Since then, we got addicted to it.

We watched it daily. Our day would not be complete without us watching it. We would watch it after coming home from the office, and would do so until around 2 a.m. Then, the following morning, we would watch again.

Of course, we don’t know how long our lives are going to be. It’s hard when the Lord will take back your life already and you don’t know where you’re going to. That’s hard. I don’t want to go to hell. [Laughs]

On Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon

I pray always for him. I hope that he will be stronger, that he’ll have courage. We are just here, the brethren, to support him. We will not leave the gatherings [with God’s help].

~o~

Bro. Charlie Romero, 50, Former World of Hope Member, Manila

On Joining the Church of God

I heard Bro. Eli’s teachings before. I was a Born Again Christian for 13 years.

Now, I’m a seaman and my shipmate gave me copies of [Bible Exposition videos] from here in his hard drive.

My shipmate is just one year here in the Church. He gave me topics of Bro. Eli and I listened to them daily in the afternoon after work.

So I studied them until I went home in December and decided to attend the indoctrination, because the doctrines are truly based in the Bible.

On Being Baptized

It feels light inside. I felt that all my heart aches, the ill feelings I kept before. I felt relieved.

On Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon

I hope that they will just continue their propagation of God’s words that many more will be lead unto the truth.

~o~

Bro. Raymart Sarmiento, 16, Former KNC, Manila

On Joining the Church of God

My parents are members here for about ten years now. I found this to be the only religion that has these doctrines.

On Being Baptized

It feels light inside.

On Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon

I hope they will continue their works because they are good and may the Lord continue to keep them.

~o~

Sis. Donna Rocabo, 17, Former Catholic, Laguna Province

On Joining the Church of God

I felt the true God here. I got interested the very first time I heard Bro. Eli.

The things that I didn’t learn from my former religion, it’s here that I learned them. That’s why I got interested and joined.

I once asked my boss about the difference of Catholicism with The Old Path. He told me to listen.

There was a Mass Indoctrination at the time, so I attended it. Upon that first instance of listening to Bro. Eli, I learned about the things we did in Catholicism that were wrong. I felt glad about it.

On Being Baptized

I was thinking twice before, but after I got baptized, the anxieties in my heart were gone. It’s like I don’t feel any pain. I felt relieved. I’m thankful because I got to know this religion.

On Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon

I hope that they will continue spreading the truth that many more souls will be saved come Judgment Day.

To God be the glory

Sis. Fhermie Bocobo, 21, Former Catholic, Tarlac Province

On Joining the Church of God

I learned here what we shouldn’t do. The things which we thought before to be right, were actually wrong.

I learned other things as well that we should not do like evil works. I felt that I am now closer to God.

I’ve long been listening, but it was only after four years since that I got baptized. I believe the teachings are right.

Also, our lives were changed, because we know that we are in the right place to serve God.

On Being Baptized

I felt light, like I have a new life before me to serve God.

On Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon

I hope that they will be able to continue leading many more people so that the wrongdoing of others will be set to right.

~o~

Bro. Karlmichael Levantino, 19, Former Catholic, Rizal Province

On Joining the Church of God

This is where I saw the true word of God. I can see that what Bro. Eli is preaching is true. In other religions, while the truth is written in the Bible, they don’t teach it.

It was only in November that I got to listen. I tried to attend the indoctrination sessions, and even on the first day of doing so, I felt the presence of God.

On Being Baptized

It feels light because I feel cleansed of all my sins. Also, I feel like a new man.

On Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon

I hope that they will continue the good things they do to people, and I hope that they will be able to save many more souls.

~o~

Bro. Solomon Lagman, 73, Former Catholic, Nueva Ecija Province

On Joining the Church of God

It’s good. I got to listen to Bro. Eli in Cabiao. Actually, I’ve long been listening but it’s only recently that I got to listen [in the indoctrination] for seven days.

On Being Baptized

I felt relieved.

On Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon

I felt relieved because of their teachings.

~o~

Sis. Blessirie Borbon, 20, Former Freelancer, Rizal Province

On Joining the Church of God

I joined because ever since I heard Bro. Eli on TV and on the Internet in 2012, I knew in myself that what he says is true.

Only, I still had vices and luxuries back then. However when I had a baby, that’s when I thought that my life should have direction. That’s the main reason why I joined.

I got to listen to Bro. Eli because every time I got home from school, I would see my mother watching him. That’s how I knew about him. Then next, I followed him on Facebook for the quotes. [Laughs]

On Being Baptized

Actually, I haven’t been baptized in any religion; even in Catholicism, I wasn’t baptized as a baby.

So this was really the first and I have nothing to compare it to. But I will say that it is only now that I have cried because of overflowing joy.

On Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon

May they take care of their health more that their lives will be longer, especially Bro. Eli, because they are able to lead many people back unto the Lord.

MCGI Kicks off 2016 with International Thanksgiving to God Celebration

Apalit, Pampanga — After their three-day International Thanksgiving to God (ITG) in the last quarter of 2015, the Members Church of God International (MCGI) follows that up and starts 2016 with another ITG on January 9.

MCGI recently celebrated their quarterly ITG event last December 25 to 27 last year.

MCGI’s lTG events are joined by more than 1,360 remote points in the Philippines alone. Meanwhile, brethren from the other parts of the world, as well as members who are natives of Central and South America participated in the live occasion through satellite and Internet technology.

Through the biblical wisdom recently revealed to the congregation by MCGI Overall Servants, Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon, the ITG on January 9 is aimed at giving gratitude to God for the guidance He gave to the congregation in the just-concluded quarterly spiritual feast.

“Let us ask ourselves: Have we received bountiful spiritual blessings? If our hearts answer ‘Yes, we did. We received bountiful spiritual blessings!’ then join us next week [in thanking God],” remarked Bro. Daniel during the regular thanksgiving to God service last January 2.

Three-Day ITG Highlights

During the ITG on December 25-27, MCGI congregants witnessed many memorable moments such as heartfelt offerings of songs of praises to God and  biblical learnings served by the Church’s Overall Servants, Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel.

“This is our opportune time, brothers and sisters,” said Bro. Eli Soriano, the MCGI Overall Servant, as he welcomed the congregants to the three-day festive celebration. “This is our opportune time to introduce to God our supplications and our problems while we are offering Him thanksgiving as a nation of God.”

Throughout the discussion of biblical topics, Bro. Soriano continued to call upon the brethren to recognize God’s goodness through thanksgiving, citing his very own reasons for giving gratitude.

“For the continuous growth of the ministry, which you all bear witness to, and the teachings that God continuously gives us; for these, I am also one with you in offering thanksgiving to God,” said Bro Eli.

Through God’s help, MCGI saw the founding of new satellite broadcast centers, relay stations and coordinating centers across Central and South America in 2015.

In Brazil alone, locales under indoctrination peaked to 237, while in the rest of Latin America, there are at least 195 established locale centers, with another 60 currently being established.

In line with this progress, more than 20,000 souls were called unto the Church and underwent baptism in the Philippines and different parts of the globe in 2015. These are fruits of the heightened global efforts spearheaded by MCGI through Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel. These newly-baptized brethren were later given the opportunity by Bro. Soriano to speak in front of the whole congregation as to how their affiliation in the Church has changed their lives.

“I was baptized here in MCGI four months ago, in September,” said Sis. Amelia Acebuche from the Locale of Comembo, Makati.

“Every time I hear God’s words through Bro. Eli, it’s like I’m hearing something new, something I’ve never heard before from my former religion. That is why I am very, very happy to be here. I am blessed that I became a member of this Church,” remarked Sis. Amelia.

Bro. Bethoven Caballero, 21, Former Iglesia ni Cristo, Manila

On Joining the Church of God

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.

On Being Baptized

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]

On Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon

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.

~o~

Bro. Mark Gludo, 26, Former Catholic, Manila

On Joining the Church of God

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.

On Being Baptized

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.

On Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon

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.

~o~

Bro. Ronelio Estivesa, 33, Former Catholic, Manila

On Joining the Church of God

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.

On Being Baptized

I feel okay. Somehow, I feel relieved inside.

On Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon

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.

~o~

Sis. Lida Lacsao, 62, Former Catholic, Manila

On Joining the Church 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.

On Being Baptized

It feels great. I felt like as if I were in the clouds. [Laughs] It’s like the Spirit is with you.

On Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon

They are gifts from God. I love them so much. Bro. Eli is life-like Jesus Christ.

To God be the glory

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.

~o~

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.

~o~

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.

~o~

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.

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.

~o~

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.

~o~

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.

~o~

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.

~o~

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.

~o~

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]

~o~

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.

~o~

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.

~o~

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
