In celebration of the 50 years of God’s blessings to the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) in the Far West, brethren from all over the world participated in activities commemorating and proclaiming the victories He has given to the Church.
The prophecy of our Almighty God regarding the gathering of His children in the Far West (Isa. 43:5 Moffatt Translation) was fulfilled on July 27, 1968 when Brother Eraño G. Manalo officiated at the first worship gathering of Church Of Christ members in the West, in Hawaii. The following month, he led another worship service, in Northern California.
Fifty years later, on July 27, 2018, under the leadership of Brother Eduardo V. Manalo, the Iglesia Ni Cristo celebrated its golden anniversary in the Far West where it all started—Ewa Beach, Hawaii, on the island of Oahu, which is known as “the gathering place.” Then, on August 5, 2018, he officiated a special worship service in Sacramento, California.
The half-century of the Iglesia Ni Cristo in the Far West was celebrated by brethren from various parts of the world through various activities. Foremost of these were the musical the One Flock, One Shepherd: God’s Promises Fulfilled, the continental-wide Unity Games, and the Excellence in Visual Media Awards 2018 International Edition. INC Giving programs and two oratorios were also performed.
