Perhaps you’ve seen this seal around town or even online? Or perhaps, you’ve been invited to attend but have been too hesitant to go, because of the unknown. Take a few minutes to learn more about the Church Of Christ.
“Enthusiasm, laughter. You guys are glad to be here. The evacuees are glad that you’re here and everybody’s having a good time helping each other. What a wonderful thing.”
While some may not have heard of the Iglesia Ni Cristo or Church of Christ, local communities have felt its presence through projects like the INC Giving Project. Whether they be teachers, police officers, firefighters or neighborhoods…they’ve felt simple acts of kindness such as these from INC members in different parts of the world
“…a little piece of history here. I especially want to thank the Church of Christ…”
and as you can see, from your region too!.
“It’s groups like you guys that use your faith to bind you together and bring you here. That’s just a fantastic thing. And it’s overwhelming.”
“We really really appreciate it. It’s huge and it’s such a wonderful moment to see you again, that we’re both in this together and it makes you feel like there’s a community of people who are giving.”
“We can’t thank you enough. It’s been just a tremendous commitment. We see a lot of people that have turned out here today to participate obviously in, I think, a service and the fundraising activity which again, speaks to the commitment and dedication of the congregation.”
“I really thank you guys because, I mean, you are really good people. Because we haven’t had anybody to actually walk the neighborhoods and you know, ‘Are you ok? Do you need anything?’ But I think this really meant a lot to me. It may not mean a lot to others but it meant a lot to me. You know, for somebody to actually show you that they care.
Perhaps you’ve seen this seal around your city or in your town, the Iglesia Ni Cristo has thousands of established congregations around the world in over 100 countries and territories, with houses of worship having a very distinct design and architecture. The INC has been garnering headlines for new houses of worship being built in record numbers around the globe. In local congregations, there are projects and activities for the whole family to enjoy…whether it be sports, music, the arts, kids events, volunteer opportunities, you name it… there is something for everyone in the INC. With so many projects for young people, it helps keep them busy, out of trouble and closer to God.
“Nowadays, young people are not so much interested in being at church so much. And when I see that some of them would come out here just to say, at least, participate or partake in these kinds of shows, it makes my heart glad.”
“Not only is it increasing their physical fitness, but it’s also letting them get to know other kids from other locales. So in a sense, they’re getting better at and edified inside the Church.”
“There’s so many parallels between church-life or your faith and martial arts. It’s like, yeah, times will get tough. You’re not always gonna be at 100%. Your faith’s gonna be tested. But it’s just that ability to go and push through the pain, push through all the bad times, and then right afterwards you feel amazing because you conquered something you think you couldn’t do.”
Aside from these activities for the whole family, and the warmth of brotherly love, what really keeps members coming back to this church is the authenticity of how God’s words are presented. All worship services and bible studies are in question and answer format…
“Now what does it mean that we need to abide in the doctrine in order to have the Father and the Son with us? From the book of John. The chapter is 14 and the verse is…”
with the Bible doing all the answering, no opinions or private interpretations from anyone.
“The words were actually coming from the Bible, not the opinions of the minister or they weren’t going off topic. The Bible was giving the answers and the questions were coming from the Bible and the answers were also coming from the Bible.”
“And the lessons were so profound. They were so intriguing and everything made sense to me there and then.”
“It was very peaceful. From walking up to the church, walking inside and sitting down, this was actually a true worship and praise and glory to God. To me, that’s what church is supposed to be about.”
Many people have been disappointed by organized religion. Who can blame them, when so many churches have lost sight of being true to the Bible; and have instead, done things based on man–made practices and opinions. But perhaps, they’ve never been introduced to the Iglesia Ni Cristo or Church of Christ. Perhaps they’ve never been to a church that has Biblical prophecies to back up its teachings and election. Perhaps, they’ve never met the Iglesia Ni Cristo, which does not bend to trends or is pressured to conform to what the modern and promiscuous world is promoting. Perhaps they’ve never been introduced to the one true Church that Christ Himself built. Could this be the one? Ask questions other churches couldn’t answer and see how joining this church could change your life.
