"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

Answers:

From sas35353535: "whats this , cant understand"
From ': "Are you talking about the church in Honolulu with the same name? or are you Pinoy and have this in your country too.
I'd be surprised if there are , but I suppose a Hawaiian could pass for an east Asian in Dubai. No body notices any way ;)"

From Catholic Defender:

There is no official recognition of the United Emirates for a church called "Iglesia ni Cristo".  If the INC founded by Felix Manalo in 1914 (Philippines) are given permission to gather and worship in any of the emirate states, they are categorized under the general term "Protestantism". 

The Jehovah's Witnesses are banned in the UAE.

Permitted Christian groups include the worldwide Catholic Church founded by Jesus Christ in 33 A.D. which has a diplomatic ties with the Vatican State, the Orthrodox Church, some Evangelicals and other Protestant churches and sects. (Source: Global Security)

Mostly visible churches in the region are owned by the Catholic Church mostly are Indians, Filipinos, Lebanese, Americans and Europeans.

Among the churches in the Region are : (Wikipedia)
  • St. Joseph's Catholic Church, Abu Dhabi
  • St. Mary's Catholic Church, Dubai
  • St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, Jebel Ali
  • St. Michael's Catholic Church, Sharjah
  • St. Mary's Catholic Church, Al Ain
  • Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, Fujairah
  • Fujairah Sub Centres in Kalba, Khorfakkan and Dibba
  • St. Anthony of Padua Church, Ras Al-Khaimah
The Catholic Church in UAE belongs to the larger Vicaraite Apostolic South Arabia. Here is the statistics of Catholics in every country Catholic Church by Country.

However here is more accurate statistics from Catholic Hierarchy.

The Iglesia ni Cristo is  not known to any other nationalities outside the Philippines.  The mere fact that its name is exclusively registered in Tagalog language traces its history in the Philippines when it was founded by Felix Manalo, a Filipino ex-Catholic and ex-Protestant minister which the founder registered his church in 1914 as the "Iglesia ni Kristo" (INK) later was changed to "Iglesia ni Cristo" (or INC).

The INC is a Sole Corporation protected by the Securities and Exchange Commission under the Philippine government.  Its name is Registered Patented Trademark that no one is allowed to register a church or group similar to theirs.

The INC members believe that Felix Manalo is an "angel" or their "Last Messenger" which is almost similar to Joseph Smith's earlier claims, founder of Mormonism.  Or some viewed INC's teachings more "Islamic" than "Christian". The only difference is that Mohammad is Islam's "Last Prophet" (or Messenger) while  Felix Manalo is INC's "Last Messenger" called to restore Christ's Church which for them totally apostatized, earlier claimed by Joseph Smith, Mormon's "Last Prophet".

The INC officially believes that the Catholic Church is the True Church of Christ founded by Jesus however it completely apostatized according to INC's official teachings.

  4. "Iglesia ni Cristo" is the true church founded by Jesus Christ, pero nawala ang Iglesiang ito..sapagkat natalikod cla nang mamatay ang mga apostol...tapus tsaka nagsilabasan ang bulaang propeta...na nagtuturo ng aral ng demonyo..ang pababawal sa pag aasawa at pagkain ng karne sa araw n itinakda,,,at ito ay natupad sa Iglesia Katoliko Romana...na nagtuturo na ibang Cristo at nag-aanyong may kabanalan ngunit tinanggihan ang kapangyarihan nito..

  5. "Iglesia ni Cristo" lang pala hahaha. As in TAGALOG lang ang tunay na Iglesia... eh di naman PINOY si Kristo hahahaha..

    Salamat sa pagpapatawa.

    At bago mo isipin na ang INCorporated InC of Manalo is the true church eh gamitin mo ang COMMON SENSE mo at napaghahalata na nagbibilad ka ng KAMANGMANGAN sa buong mundo.

    Heto ang link sa ROMANS 16:16 na pinagmamalaki mo!!!!

  6. INC ni Manalo member, pakisabi nga kung kailan (date) nakatikod na GANAP ang tunay na Iglesia?

    At saan ito nakasulat sa Biblia na GANAP na MATATALIKOD ang BUONG IGLESIA?

    Mapaniwala kasi kayo kay FELIX MANALO na MANLILINLANG at ANTI-KRISTO!
