Inspired by faith and love for God, choir members from the Ecclesiastical District of United Kingdom led their fellow brethren in sharing their faith through an online musical evangelical mission on January 24, 2021, the first of its kind in their district.
The evangelistic event began study of Bible-based lessons delivered simultaneously by Brother Glenn Gomez, district supervising minister, at the house of worship of the Local Congregation of Heathrow, and Brother Edmond Tapang at the house of worship of the Local Congregation of Manchester. Each venue served as online conference rooms to cater to thousands of attendees, members and nonmembers alike, in designated areas in the district.
The musical part of the event immediately followed, during which the choir of several local congregations rendered original Iglesia Ni Cristo songs. Curated by the INC Music Department, these songs, such as “The True Messenger of God,” “Thank You For I Am Saved,” “Do Not Extinguish the Fire of the Holy Spirit,” and “In Our Lord God, You Must Place Your Complete Trust,” convey the biblical truths upheld by Church Of Christ through which the brethren were also able to share the true Christian faith to their guests.
Elpidio Dassala, a Church officer from Newport, Wales, observed, “Watching the musical for the first time, [our guests] were so glad to witness a completely different way of sharing our faith. Their reactions were truly uplifting and all the more inspire our family to completely unite with the present campaign of the Church Administration, to bear fruits in abundance. With God’s grace, we are hoping our guests would continue to join us in our series of evangelical missions.”
The joyful yet solemn and uplifting event concluded with a digital “thank–you” banner sent out to all the guests and an open invitation from brethren encouraging them to join them again in upcoming evangelical missions and Bible studies. — With reports from INC News Section
