Sis. Amparo Salting, 60, Former Catholic, Nueva Ecija Province

On Joining the Church of God

The teachings are good. I was invited to the Locale of Camp Tinio.

I was able to listen there, and told Sis. RJ that I wanted to be indoctrinated the following week as the teachings are good.

It was my first time to be invited to [a Church gathering], and it was to an indoctrination session then…

I was indoctrinated in just three days as I wanted to be baptized in the week that followed. It was a whole-day session; Sis. RJ was really tired, but it’s okay with her as it is for the Lord.

On Being Baptized

I feel okay. I’m happy… I was crying because of joy. Of course, when you feel the Lord, that you have accepted Him… You’re crying because He’s with you.

On Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon

Many, many thanks to you Bro. Eli, because you changed my life through listening to the doctrines that you preach.

Many, many thanks and may God bless you more. I hope that your service to God will lengthen that you may be able to save many souls.

Bro. Alvin Ganancial, 26, Former Catholic, Manila

On Joining the Church of God

I wanted to change and know the true God.

It was because of my mother; I saw that she had changed her attitude.

I then asked myself how my mother was able to change, and why I didn’t join [the Church] or take a look at it or listen to the doctrines.

With God’s mercy I became [a member] today. I’m also thankful that I have accepted Him wholeheartedly, and that I was able to join the Church of God.

My mother is also a new member. She became a member only this year; I think she is just less than two-months old.

She somewhat encouraged me to join, and I want to do the same to our household to know the true Lord.

On Being Baptized

It felt good. I felt relieved that my sins are gone, having repented of them. And I know that the Lord has forgiven me as well.

On Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon

Bro. Eli, Bro. Daniel, I hope that the Mass Indoctrination will grow wider, and that you may be able to save many more souls not only [here] but abroad as well. Let’s support each other.

Bro. Francis Moreto and Sis. Nenette Manguiat, 25, Former Catholics, Batangas Province

On Joining the Church of God

Bro. Francis: We have heard truth.

Sis. Nenette: The teachings of the Church of God are better than those of my former religion’s.

Bro. Francis: We have listened to The Old Path through TV and radio for many years now. We religiously listened to the teachings and have accepted them right away.

Sis. Nenette: We voluntarily went to the Locale in Lipa, and it was where we attended the indoctrination continuously. And it was through my co-teacher, who is also a member, that we were able to get there.

Bro. Francis: I have long heard [Bro. Eliseo], and I was looking for someone I know [who is a member] to guide us to The Old Path.

She was chatting on Facebook [her co-teacher], but she wasn’t able to reply to us. When we didn’t consider it anymore, she was the one who…

Sis. Nenette: I was the one who went to ask her in person. She probably rarely [opens Facebook].

Bro. Francis: Then as we have been attending for two indoctrination days already, I saw someone I knew, who I didn’t know was also a brother. That’s the only time I knew.

On Being Baptized

Sis. Nenette: As [Bro. Eli] said from the Bible… What I felt is really hard to explain.

Bro. Francis: At first, while I was just in line to be baptized, I felt nervous, and I didn’t know why.

But after I got immersed, I have forgotten all my sins and never to commit them again [with God’s help and mercy].

On Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon

Bro. Francis: I hope that they will continue speaking the words of God that many more may hear it.

I hope that many more brethren will be encouraged to join, because this is where I saw and understood the true meaning of the Bible, of God’s teachings.

They are taught and explained one by one, which aren’t taught in other religions, in my former religion. It’s only here where I found and understood those things in such a long period of time.

Sis. Nenette: I share the same sentiments.

Sis. Meizl Ann Fercia, 20, Former Former KNC, Bulacan Province

On Joining the Church of God

I feel that I am already prepared to receive the doctrines that I have heard since [I was a kid].

When I started in college, I wasn’t able to attend [in the KNC]. We have a store and I was the one assigned to that; I would go there after school. Then, I also studied.

On Being Baptized

It feels good inside as I have long dreamed of it.

Actually, after [graduating] in the KNC, I already wanted it…So I’m really happy that I have now been baptized.

I’m thankful to them [my parents] for establishing us; they were able to send us to school. Now, they still guide us and I’m a member now because of their guidance as well.

On Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon

For Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel, may they continue spreading the words of God which they have started before, and may God continue to guide them.

To God be the glory
