Newly Baptized Testimonials: July 19, 2013

Take a look at short testimonials of faith from some of MCGI’s youngest members baptized on July 19, 2013 at the ADD Convention Center in Apalit, Pampanga, Philippines.

Bro. Apolonio Pante, 41, Former Catholic, Cavite Province

On Being Baptized
Before I was baptized, I felt like I was in the middle of nowhere; I had no faith. But now that I’ve been baptized, I felt the Spirit of God. I felt how I’ve accepted Him, and how I’ve repented of my sins and many other things.

I can’t explain it. It’s as if all my problems are gone. I feel light.

I started watching on UNTV 37 after my in-law advised me to watch it [Ang Dating Daan]. When I heard Bro. Eli Soriano for about three times, I got interested to watch him daily, nightly.

On MCGI Leaders
To Bro. Daniel, I hope that you’ll be able to save many more souls. I hope that you’ll bring them to the true faith.

To Bro. Eli, may God give him longer life so that many more will believe him and that he may be able to preach the words our Lord Jesus Christ in the Bible. May you be able to save many more souls.

Sis. Priscila Chavez, 68, Former Catholic, Bulacan Province

On Being Baptized
It’s as if I found here the religion that I’ve been searching for, because I’ve been to all religions. I was even close to death at one time when I fainted and fell, as I was an usherette. Fortunately, someone caught me.

Since then, I didn’t serve anymore, because I felt that no [teaching] touches my heart. I said that if I returned there, I might die and my soul will not be saved.

I’ve been listening on radio for about a year now. I asked my husband, “Do you know where’s The Old Path of Bro. Eli?” He said, “There’s one in Tungko.” So I searched for it. I was alone, and this is even the same dress I wore [laughs].

I wasn’t shy then. When I went to the Locale, it was Thanksgiving and there were many people there. I then asked, “Is this The Old Path?” They said yes, and I replied: “I want to join you, because I might die and my soul won’t be saved.”

On MCGI Leaders
It’s only through them that I knew of God’s true love to His children. That’s all I can say.

Bro. Joshua Casipit, 20, Former Baptist, Batangas

On Being Baptized
I’m really, really very happy because I became a member here. In my former religions, I didn’t see the right doctrine in them. They had many teachings that were in contrast to the Bible; they don’t read it from the Bible.

I was able to watch Bro. Eli Soriano first through Youtube. I was a Baptist and the first thing I watched was the debate of Bro. Eli Soriano vs. Madlangawa. When I saw it, I doubted that there was something wrong with the teachings of the Baptist, so I researched religions.

In the end, I found out that the Church founded by God, that the Apostles ministered in, still exists in our time — and God used Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel Razon for it.

On MCGI Leaders
My only message to them is that may God give them more life and may they still be used to serve people.

Sis. Jocelyn Torres, 49, Former Catholic, Pampanga Province

On Being Baptized
It’s like, I finally found what I’ve been long looking for, and I’m content.

I’ve been long listening to Bro. Eli Soriano because I’ve been searching for the truth. My mother was Catholic and my father was Iglesia ni Cristo; they believed in different gods. It’s like, Christ was man and Christ was God. Which one is true?

Then I searched on TV. Whenever there was someone preaching, I searched for the truth in them. I watched Velarde, Ferriol, until I found Bro. Eli. Exactly at that point, his topic was about Christ. I found it to be true, because before I searched on TV, I searched first in the Bible.

I then remembered what time his broadcast was. Since then, I’ve been a regular listener. Ever since I heard him in 2000, I stopped going to Church. But before, I used to go frequently because I wanted to be closer to God, but I didn’t know where to go to.

On MCGI Leaders
Before I joined here, I first attended Thanksgiving every Saturday. I also attended Thanksgiving Viewing in the locale. It was there that I became sure that what Bro. Eli says is guided by the Holy Spirit. That’s why I got baptized.

I believe that all he teaches is inspired by the Holy Spirit. He’s unlike others who just invent what they explain, like Quiboloy.

Sis. Daisy Mingo, 19, Former Catholic, Mindoro Province

On Being Baptized
I thank Bro. Eli and I thank God because I became a member here. I listened on the radio and sometimes my mother invited me to attend Church services.

On MCGI Leaders
Many, many thanks to Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel because I became a member in the Church of God. Thank you!

Bro. Jose Mingo, 57, Former Born Again, Mindoro Province

On Being Baptized
With the Lord’s mercy, I feel light; I feel relieved. We were able to know the Lord through Bro. Eli. Many thanks to the Lord because he changed my life.

It was my in-law who is a member here, and I said to her: “If the Lord wills, please lead us to your religion, because in the Born Again, I don’t understand their teaching.” If you won’t be able to give tithes or offering, I couldn’t worship because I didn’t even have Php5.00.

On MCGI Leaders
I’m really very thankful that I knew Bro. Eli, and that the Lord changed me. I was a drunkard before. But now, I’ve forgotten everything on this day. Many thanks to the Lord for he changed me.

We came from afar. We’re from Mindoro, and it’s a whole day’s journey and it’s also tiring to the body. After I was immersed, I felt that the evil spirits have come out. Many thanks to the Lord for He changed me.

Bro. Jomer Mingo, 20, Former Born Again, Mindoro Province

On Being Baptized
I really feel light, and happy because now I’m with God.

The mother of my wife made way for us to hear Bro. Eli. It was during a Bible Study that I heard him and I really felt that what he says is true.

On MCGI Leaders
I’m really very thankful because we realized all of the mistakes in our former religion.

Bro. Pedro Chavez, Batangas Province

On Being Baptized
I feel relieved. Before I felt bad, but now I feel really relieved. It was my cousin who invited me here as I was a Catholic before. I went with him. Until there came a time when I understood that everything being said is in the Bible. That’s why I went on with becoming a member, with the baptism.

She’s [Sis. Jocelyn Chavez] my in-law and we met here on this day! I haven’t seen her for a long time! I actually didn’t know that she was undergoing indoctrination, and I was surprised to see her here.

On MCGI Leaders
Bro. Eli really explains well. All he says is nothing but in the Bible. He’s really true.
