Newly Baptized Testimonials: May 30, 2014

Read short testimonials of faith from some of MCGI’s youngest brethren baptized on May 30, 2014 at the ADD Convention Center in Apalit, Pampanga.

Sis. Marissa Bilir, 43, Former Catholic, NCR

On Being Baptized
I feel fresh, as in really fresh. Before I got immersed to be baptized, I was really crying. [I thought] At least this time… I didn’t know that I still had a chance; I have the big chance for my sins to be cleansed, to be forgiven. So when the baptism was over, I was really thankful, very thankful.

Before I heard [Bro. Eliseo Soriano] on television, because it was only through that that I met him. He’s really gifted. So I can see that I really have nothing else to look for in him.

Through this Church of God, I realized that though I would die today, it’s welcome to me already. That’s what I feel now, and ever since I met Bro. Eli.

On MCGI Leaders
More power. I know that [they] still need to preach to many more. Good health too.

Sis. Azueta Adarayan, 37, Former Catholic, Manila

On Being Baptized
Somehow I feel light. My friend invited me to a prayer meeting service. She also invited me to the indoctrination sessions.

I see [the Members Church of God International] on Facebook and on television. I watch [Ang Dating Daan] on television. I liked him [Bro. Eli Soriano]; the teachings he says are really true, so I got indoctrinated.

I’ve been listening to Bro. Eli a long time, since 2002, but I wasn’t able to immediately decide. I was afraid of the responsibility that I will face, that I wouldn’t be able to handle it. But now, with God’s mercy, I was able to decide. I am now sure of myself.

Before I attended prayer meetings; it was through DVD before, way back 2000. I also watched on television. Now, I see it on Facebook, on the Internet.

Sometimes I would share and like the [newly baptized testimonials]. It’s encourages me and strengthens my faith, when I get to read the messages.

On MCGI Leaders
May [they] be given more bodily strength by the Lord that he may be able to spread more the words of God.

Sis. Micah Genesis Roño, 23, Former KNC, NCR

On Being Baptized
My heart is happy.

My parents are already members. I’ve long been a Kawan Ng Cordero (KNC) member before. I’m thankful to God because my parents didn’t tire in teaching me. Now, I’m baptized.

On MCGI Leaders
Thanks be to God and we have preachers like Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel, who despite hardships, remain strong for the brethren.

Bro. Joey Feliciano, 42, Former Catholic, Pangasinan Province

On Being Baptized
My body feels light, and I feel like my sins are gone.

I heard [Bro. Eli Soriano] since 2000 on radio. It was Bro. Alex who invited me to the Locale of Calasiao. I listened [to the indoctrination sessions] there for a few days. Then I went on with [the baptism]. Bro. Alex is the husband of my aunt. And now he’s my brother too.

On MCGI Leaders
To Bro. Eli, I thank him because if it weren’t for their good attitude towards people, their wonderful teachings as of the Lord Jesus Christ and the Father, I would not be here. His teaching is good; may he continue it.

Sis. Michaella Ganaban, 18, Former Catholic, Pampanga

On Being Baptized
I feel light and good inside.

I was able to watch [Bro. Eliseo Soriano] through his Bible Expositions on television, on UNTV. I’ve been listening to him for a long time, since a month ago, but it was only now that I learned that there was a locale in Rosario.

All he says is really in the Bible. At first, I didn’t like him. But that’s what others comment on him too as he speaks [frankly].

On MCGI Leaders
I hope they will continue [preaching]. May God always be with them.

Sis. Myriam Talagtag, 29, Former Catholic, Cavite Province

On Being Baptized
I feel light inside. The problems I had, I’ve already overcome with the help of the Father God.

I feel that God the Father is with me, because when I was baptized, I felt that my heart seemed to be overwhelming with grace.

I heard [Bro. Eliseo Soriano] before, but I didn’t make anything of it. Sometimes, I would catch him on television.

But it just so happened that my husband and his siblings are already members, and they also became instruments for me [to become a member].

I was with my husband in [attending gatherings]. I was able to listen to the doctrines. I studied them and wrote them down. I understood them. Thanks be to God.

On MCGI Leaders
I’m very thankful for the teachings that you [taught] us, that our souls may be saved on judgment day if we will stand by the teachings from the Bible that you preach to us. Many, many thanks to God.
