"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

IGLESIA NI CRISTO®: Tunay na Iglesia, Nakabalik na raw sa Jerusalem? Nasaan ba kayo sa Jerusalem?!









"Brother Eduardo V. Manalo ... read the history of the Church Of Christ in Jerusalem ... then [he] proceeded with the homily, in which he expounded on the fulfillment of the prophesied return of God's people to their original abode, Jerusalem, as marked by the official registration of the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church of Christ) in the city of Jerusalem in February of that year." [1996]
-PASUGO God's Message, February 2014, p. 7

"In 1994, the Iglesia Ni Cristo was registered in the city of Rome. This was followed by the Church's official registration in two other historic cities: Jerusalem in 1996, which marked the fulfillment of a prophesied return of the true Church to its original home; and Athens, Greece in 1997, which signaled the continuation of the Church's expansion in the Gentile lands.

"Other notable glimpses during Brother Eraño Manalo's stewardship of the Church were the official establishment of the local congregation of Rome in Italy on July 27, 1994, signifying the full restoration of the Church in Rome; the official establishment of the local congregation of Jerusalem in Israel on March 31, 1996, signifying the Church's return to its original home; and the official establishment of the local congregation of Athens in Greece on May 10, 1997, signifying the extension of the Gentile mission."

"Most memorable of the expansion works of the Church is the establishment of the local congregation of the Church in Rome; in Jerusalem in Israel on March 31, 1996, signifying the Church's return to its original home; and in Athens, Greece on May 10, 1997, signifying the extension of the Gentile mission."
