"The Christianity of history is not Protestantism. If ever there were a safe truth it is this, and Protestantism has ever felt it so; to be deep in history is to cease to be a Protestant." (-John Henry Newman, An Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine).

"Where the bishop is, there let the people gather; just as where ever Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church". -St. Ignatius of Antioch (ca 110 AD)a martyr later thrown to the lions, wrote to a church in Asia Minor. Antioch was also where the term "Christian" was first used.

“But if I should be delayed, you should know how to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of truth.” 1 Timothy 3:15

"This is the sole Church of Christ, which in the Creed we profess to be one, holy, catholic and apostolic." -CCC 811

* Felix Manalo was our former evangelist and the founder of the INC (1914), He in fact registered it in the same name of our church in a tagalong version of it and luring our converts in Atlanta Gulf and Pacific Co. while claiming it as his first congregation in mid 1913’s. Despite that we educate him as a good evangelist through our missionary Mr. Leslie Wolfe, He still leave and founded his church maybe because serving the Lord with the Churches of Christ doesn’t make him rich. Another reason is that since he was in our church, he was always involved in sexually moral scandals that followed him even when he was in Seventh-day Adventist Church, and a letter from Mr. Las Pinas came out in the 1930’s and Rosita Trillianes in the 1950’s.
* A locale is independent and autonomous and is overseen by our multiple Elders (Titus 1:5).
* We do not have any founder rather than our Lord Jesus Christ and We don’t not have an earthly man figure to govern as head, oversee, manipulate, control and have given tiltes such as: Sugo, Apostle, Bishop, Son of God, Reverend Father etc., etc, etc.

No Pope or priest claims that "he owns the Catholic Church.
No Pope or priest claims that "he founded the Catholic Church"
But History says, the Catholic Church is historically the true Church of Christ in 33 A.D.

On the contrary, the Iglesia ni Cristo claims they were founded by Christ in 33A.D.
On the contrary, Felix Manalo owns the Iglesia ni Cristo-INC (Iglesia ni Kristo-INK)
On the contrary, the Manalo clan owns the Iglesia ni Cristo as a Corporation Sole according to its SEC registrations.

  1. nice presentation: May I suggest that please give the complete details of every arguments to make it transparent. Let the facts reveal the truth and not merely by emotions. Example: If the catholic church was built by christ cite a concrete evidence? If felix manalo was convicted by immoral is it with finality? If the pope does not label them as angels,then expound it? Give the better theology not merely edifying one from another.

  2. Thanks gen for dropping by but why are you doing a great disservice to your iglesia? Displaying your inability to comprehend sound historical fact, though I provided links to support my claims for everyone's own research, and yet you simply demanded things you don't know is a big disservice to our iglesia.

    May I suggest you to:

    1. Can you give us your complete theology in the INC?
    2. Show us any link where we can read first-hand the story about Felix Manalo's immoral acts?
    3. Show us links or books were we can read your official INC teachings.
    4. Show us your factual number of affiliates to stop our politicians from believing in a myth.
    5. Show us any factual proof that your INC links to the First Century Church?
    6. Give something which you think I fail to give. This is your chance to defend your iglesia, not just by coming here and talking empty words.

    So why not start reading Alin ang Iglesiang binabati ng "lahat ng mga iglesia ni Cristo: Iglesia sa Roma o Iglesia sa Pilipinas? then please try to click the labels, see the FACTS.
