On March 9, 2021, members of the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) from the Ecclesiastical District of Quezon City invited their fellowmen, friends, and loved ones to attend the outreach-evangelical mission. It is the brethren’s earnest and conscious desire to bring their guests in the true service and worship of God as commanded by Him according to the Bible.
The preaching of God’s words by Brother Glicerio B. Santos Jr., Church’s General Auditor, in the house of worship of the Capitol Local Congregation, was streamed live to almost 900 remote sites, that is, houses of worship and missionary centers all over the district.
Brother Santos taught the biblical truths about the Church Of Christ—the true Church that God deemed worthy of receiving the promised salvation on the nearing Second Advent of Jesus Christ.
Upholding this truth, Rosie de Guzman, a deaconess from Capitol Local Congregation, brought some of her neighbors in the host site. “We will strive to guide them as they receive their holy baptism inside the Church,” she promised.
“Every truth about the Church was directly came from the Bible that eventually instilled in my heart and mind. So, I thought of pursuing my interest to know more about this religion,” Margie Gacod, one of Rosie’s guests, said. “If I had learned so much today about the doctrines of the Church Of Christ, how much more on the following events?”
Brother Smith Sangalang, a ministerial worker assigned in Martan Local Congregation, said, “Through the leadership of the Church officers, we encourage the brethren to actively unite with the Church Administration by always reminding them the great importance of sharing our faith.”
Amanda Repompo, a deaconess from the Local Congregation of Martan, shared that as a Church member, it is her duty to be instrument of God in the conversion of many people in the Church. “I want them to be saved from punishment on Judgment Day. That is why I take every opportunity to invite many people as I can to evangelical missions and Bible studies for them to know the truths written in the Bible,” she said.
One of the guests of Amanda, Jomar Elisan, who attended in the remote site, shared how we was convinced to pursue his membership in the Church: “One of the biblical lessons that strike me most is that it is the Iglesia Ni Cristo that will only be saved on Judgment Day. From all the religions in the world, this is the Church that was purchased by Christ’s blood.”
Brother Wilson Cayago, district supervising minister, expressed his gratitude to all the brethren for being always active and unite with the Church Administration in Church works and activities, no matter what. “The Church members in the district are never hindered by the pandemic, calamities, and widespread poverty in helping the Church Administration to proclaim the Good News of salvation. Instead, they eagerly fulfill this commandment of God,” he said.
Everyone in attendance, from the host and remote sites, adhered to the minimum public health standards. — With reports from INC News Section and Keype France Abalos
