In several ways, Ang Dating Daan (ADD) is like any other Christian church. Catholics, Seventh Day Adventists, are names that indicate their rebellion . the Father: In our last lesson in Major Doctrines of the Faith, we will see that Christ, the eternal life, through belief in Christ Jesus AND THE GOSPEL. Members Church of God International, abbreviated as MCGI, is an international Christian religious organization with headquarters in the Philippines. It started as a small group with less than a hundred believers in It is popularly known in the Philippines as Ang Dating Daan (English: The For them, the church's primary objective, as commanded by Jesus Christ. the main speaker concerning Bible interpretations. +. If you try to ask They publish their ―Ang Dating Daan‖ series for old and prospective converts. They normally give (A belief of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church - Ellen G. White).
All true believers should want to get baptized into a good church. If they have no desire to obey Him, they probably are not really saved! It also implies that requirements can be added to this "gospel" just as the Mormons have done to their gospel. But the Bible teaches that we are not to receive a different gospel Gal.
Their baptism is like that of Roman Catholicism. From the writings of Bro.
Arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord. And Biblically speaking, it refers to baptism. Man must be immersed into the water, and having imbibed with the words and teachings of God, he will be washed clean from his sinfulness. NT baptism was always closely associated with salvation.
This is because only those who were really saved were willing to be publicly marked and persecuted through baptism. When the new convert went down into the water, was submerged, and was then raised up, a re-enactment of his sins being washed away by the death, burial and resurrection of Christ was publicly demonstrated. But this picture does not mean that we can wash away our sins by baptism.
Certainly if baptism was essential for salvation, Paul would not have said this. Their salvation is like the INC. If there are Gentiles who want to go back to God, to be worthy of salvation which will come from our Lord Jesus Christ, they must make themselves a part of the body, or the Church. And all of those who claim that the church is no longer necessary are all liars and deceivers!
The Bible teaches us how. Part of the problem with ADD theology, is their failure to make distinctions between 1 the local church such as the Church of Jerusalem, Corinth, etc. By taking a teaching of the universal church and wrongfully applying it to the local church, the wrong doctrinal conclusions are reached.
They are part of the Jerusalem church. Soriano believes that all others outside themselves, are lost. And since ADD believes that baptism and church membership are essential for salvation, and that God the Father and God the Son are not equal, any church which disagrees with them, cannot be from Jerusalem.
But who with Jerusalem Church authority had ordained Bro. Soriano as a missionary? Which churches or denominations does Bro.
Soriano believe had this Jerusalem Church authority before he registered his own church in ? Why didn't he go and unite with them for his own salvation before he went out to organize his own church?

Soriano's online blogs are also compiled and printed as "The Blog Magazine". The church has also been acknowledged by the Philippine Bible Society as a regular donor and major distribution partner of Tagalog Bibles. The church rejects the traditional doctrine of trinity mainly on its concept that there is "one God in three co-equal persons", which for them, is against the Bible.
They also consider the Father is greater than Jesus Christ, the head of Christ and greater than all. He is the only savior of mankind and the only way to the kingdom of God in heaven Acts They believe that Christ descended on earth from the bosom of the Father, suffered for the redemption of sin, died on the cross, resurrected after three days, ascended to heaven and sat on the right side of God. All church gatherings, either spiritual or socio-civic, begin and end with prayers.
The church believes that it is a commandment of God to live a prayerful life based on 1 Thes 5: As a discipline, they refrain from showing the act of praying on their television broadcasts, either live or recorded, in public.
However, only the audio of the community prayer is being aired, to encourage non-brethren to join and participate in praying to God, without necessarily being seen publicly. It is where the true religion and worship is being practiced.
The people of God will offer incense, not a literal incense, but "prayers" Rev 5: Prophet Isaiah mentioned about people giving glory to the Lord God of Israel in the "coastlands of the sea in the east" Revised Standard Version and "isles of the sea in the east" King James Version. They "will start from few", but God promised that "I will multiply them" and "they shall not be small". They believe that only the church can teach the wisdom of God for the salvation of mankind citing Luke 8: They strongly believe that Christ came to the earth in many occasions already and his return will not be the "second" citing 1 Cor Those righteous who are still alive will be caught up together with the resurrected saints in the clouds, to meet Jesus Christ in the air citing 2 Thes 4: One of the tricks he uses is the stance against tithes.
