Newly Baptized Testimonials: October 4, 2013

Read short testimonials of faith from some of MCGI’s youngest brethren baptized on October 4, 2013 at the ADD Convention Center in Apalit, Pampanga.

Bro. James Michael Ong, 30, Former Catholic, Manila

On Being Baptized
What I felt when I was baptized was that I had a new person, because baptism washed away all my sins as what Bro. Eliseo Soriano taught.

It’s only now that I experienced this because in Catholicism, [I was] baptized as an infant so I had no mind yet of my own. It’s only here that I learned the true meaning of baptism.

I learned of The Old Path [program] when I was invited to attend a Prayer Meeting and a Thanksgiving of the Body, and on UNTV 37.

On MCGI Leaders
Bro. Eli, thank you for teaching the doctrines; I learned so much from the doctrines. May your lives be longer and may you be able to teach many more of God’s doctrines.

Bro. Marvin Mendoza, 22, Former Catholic, Batangas Province

On Being Baptized
It’s like I felt relieved; it feels good inside.

I learned of The Old Path through my siblings who are brethren in the Church. They brought me here, to the indoctrination sessions and I finished [and accepted them] without any doubt.

On MCGI Leaders
Many, many thanks to Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel.

Bro. Honorato Tindog, 28, Former Catholic, Zambales Province

On Being Baptized
Someone just invited me to listen to The Old Path, to listen to the teachings, until I have. [Now] I felt relieved; I can’t explain what I feel.

On MCGI Leaders
May they continue their preaching of the Gospel. Many, many thanks.

Bro. Jhonlie Salubre, 35, Former Adventist, Cavite Province

On Being Baptized
I’m glad and happy that I learned many things I didn’t learn before in my previous religions. Now, I have found the truth.

On MCGI Leaders
Many thanks because my heart and mind has been enlightened by the Lord. Many, many thanks to God for both of them.

Bro. Aried John David, 15, Former Catholic, Bulacan Province

On Being Baptized
I’m happy that I was baptized and was brought here by my relatives: my Aunt Ruth, my Kuya (Big Brother) Ruben, Kuya Robert, to listen to the teachings. There are so many truths that we can find here in the [Church of God].

On MCGI Leaders
Many thanks to Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel and also to my relatives who brought me here. I will obey the teachings here and I will not do anymore the prohibitions of [the Bible, with God’s help and mercy].

Bro. Rogelio Macaso, 63, Former Born Again, NCR

On Being Baptized
I thank God that I met Bro. Eli and heard his teachings.

When I first listened to him, I liked it. Others were annoyed because the teachings he told struck other people’s wrongdoings. I would list down what he says and whenever I looked in the Bible I would say, “What he says is right!”

At first, I sent my nephew to go here; I said, “Go and tell me the things you’ll hear.” Soon after, I followed him and here I am, happy to be baptized.

On MCGI Leaders
All I can say to Bro. Eli, I’m thankful that I heard him; I learned teachings of God. May he continue to preach that many more people will be able to listen to him. May God give him more strength.

Bro. Mark Kevin Baldemor, 20, Former Catholic, Laguna Province

On Being Baptized
Of course I’m happy because the feeling’s different, especially when I was immersed in water. It was like all my [worries] were gone. It’s just like that! It felt like I was born again.

We were able to listen in 2008 on cable, Channel 49, and on UNTV; also on La Verdad Radio 1350 at nights. My brother was the first to become a member, and he was able to bring us here.

On MCGI Leaders
More power and God bless. Thanks be to God.

Bro. Gilberto Artusa, 41, Former Catholic, Bulacan Province

On Being Baptized
I feel light and I felt as if I’ve been unloaded of the burden I carried. The problems lingering in my mind since long ago that seemed to have no answer, I feel now has been relieved with God’s help and mercy.

It was way back in 2005 when I chanced upon [Bro. Eli Soriano] on radio on DZBB; that time, it was on Don Manolo Favis’ [program]. That’s when I got interested in tuning in to The Old Path. There came a time when I listened to other programs and I assessed [what I heard], until I decided to be indoctrinated.

On MCGI Leaders
Bro. Eli, Bro. Daniel, I know that the Lord God is using you to spread His words. With God’s help and mercy, may your lives be longer so many more people will be able to hear the true teachings of God that you preach.

Sis. Marilyn Armedilla, 32, Former Catholic, NCR

On Being Baptized
I thank the Lord because He proclaimed to me His righteousness through Bro. Eli Soriano, and through the brethren who helped me get here. I’m happy and I feel that the Spirit of God is in our congregation.

Our neighbor always watched TV loudly, and I hear [The Old Path]. Also, he always invites me to attend, even for just one time. When I did go with him, I got the more [interested].

On MCGI Leaders
May God give them more bodily strength that they may continue preaching and leading people who are in need of God’s righteousness.

Bro. Marvin Dingalan, 18, Former Catholic, Bulacan Province

On Being Baptized
I feel good. I feel that I’ve been changed, and [I promise] to obey all the commandments that were taught to us.

On MCGI Leaders
All I can say to Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel is what they’re doing is very good, and may they keep on doing it.

Bro. Archie Brioso, 33, Former Born Again, Bulacan Province

On Being Baptized
It feels light because you know that you’ve been cleansed and at the same time you feel complete because you’ve found what you’ve been searching for. Finally, you’re with the people who have found righteousness.

My mom has been watching The Old Path since I was a kid. One time [in my adult life], I chanced upon it and it caught my attention. Eventually, I found myself regularly watching it.

On MCGI Leaders
The duty they perform is a righteous one; it’s purely about truth, and all are based in the Bible. May God give more life to Bro. Eli. Thanks be to God.

Sis. Elvie Comawas, 19, Former Catholic, Bulacan Province

On Being Baptized
I feel light. On this day, it’s as if every wrong outlook I had has been changed, that my wrongdoings have been corrected.

The teachings are good beyond compare from other religions’, as I also joined other religions, investigated. It’s really here that I found truth, [coming] from other religious denominations. It’s really only here that I found the Lord.

On MCGI Leaders
Many thanks because they are being used by the Lord to bring the [Gospel] to us all.
