“I made a promise to the Lord God that I would serve Him with all my might, especially in sharing the true faith, that is why I did my best to invite my friends and relatives who are nonmembers to attend the evangelical mission,” said Geson Pariente, a recently baptized member.

Geson was just one among the brethren from the Local Congregation of Butuan City who did their part in inviting people to the evangelical mission which was hosted in connection with the district-wide campaign of the Ecclesiastical District of Agusan del Norte. It was held on January 7, 2023.

The propagational activity was held in the house of worship of the local congregation and was officiated at by Brother Reynante Minglana, resident minister. He taught from the Bible about the necessity of seeking out and joining the true Church established by the Lord Jesus Christ. He went on to cite biblical proofs that in these last days, the true Church is the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ). To receive the promised salvation, he made it clear to the attendees, that members of the Church Of Christ are expected by God to remain obedient to all of His commands to them.

“Here in our local congregation, the brethren, including those in the process of joining the Church and the newly baptized, exerted their best efforts in inviting guests to attend this proclamation of God’s words,” Brother Minglana said. “We also took the opportunity to extend our invitation for them to join us in our worships services.”

The Local Congregation of Butuan City is one of the 49 local congregations comprising Agusan Del Norte District, part of Caraga region in Mindanao, Philippines. — With reports from INC News Section
