On Joining the Church of God

I wanted to learn the doctrines of God.

In this Church, [if you follow the commandments of God] you will be saved. Also, every time you attend Church services, teachings are added to you which you can use your whole life.

At first, I wasn’t sure about this as I was solidly a Catholic then; I thought it was the right religion. That was what I believed.

Then, I was able to watch him [Bro. Eliseo]. The very first time, I felt kind of bored because I didn’t want to listen. As time passed by, I understood it. I guess because at first, my mind was closed, but it eventually got opened as I kept attending.

Actually, I haven’t seen my father in a long time, as we [my siblings and I] got adopted. When I returned home, I saw that he was changed; his lifestyle was different as compared to before.

That’s when I saw that this Church can change people’s lifestyles, and I got amazed. Then one time I went with him.

On Being Baptized

I finally felt light, because before I really felt I was carrying this burden inside. Then, I got enlightened by the words of Bro. Eli, and I felt light after I got baptized.

On Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon

Keep it up. Their explanations are so easy to understand compared to others, like the priests’. But with them, sometimes you’ll even get a laugh or two, and it’s very comprehensible.

On Joining the Church of God

Out of the many, many religions that I saw, it is truly only here where I found the reality that I must learn. It is here in this religion.

I was also encouraged to join by her [points to Sis. MJ] father. At first I was kind of bored, because I believed in former religion where there was crying and dancing; I was a Born Again.

That’s when I realized, “Why do I have to dance, cry, when I could listen and reflect on the truths that cannot be learned through dancing and crying, but in listening to teachings as what Bro. Eli preaches.”

I got interested in the doctrines and were able to focus on them. I just had that feeling wherein my knowledge, my awareness, my life views are broadening because of what I have been learning from Bro. Eli.

It’s because of what he says, people’s understanding of each other become bigger. Even though others do you wrong, you understand them.

On Being Baptized

Actually when I haven’t yet been immersed in water, I felt nervous. I don’t know what changes would happen to me once I got out of the water.

But before I got baptized, I prayed that the Lord may guide me. I prayed that when I get out of the water, there will be a new me, and I will have a new life, a new being.

After baptism, I felt I was cleansed. Though not in the physical way, but spiritually; I felt it. I felt the new me. I hope it will continue until the end.

On Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon

To join hands with them, to be with them until the end. I cannot say anything more for them, but that they’re good.

On Joining the Church of God

I really wanted to join. My parents are just one month in the Church and they have encouraged me as well.

On Being Baptized

I feel happy.

On Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon

I hope that they will continue what they are doing.

To God be the glory
