4,000 Souls Change Camp to MCGI

Members Church of God International reaped roughly 4,000 souls in a historic one-day Mass Baptism held yesterday at MCGI Coordinating Centers all over the Philippines.

The number of converts was the biggest in the Church baptism history exceeding the most number of baptized souls recorded in the Bible (The Acts 2:41).

Bro. Eli Soriano, MCGI Presiding Minister, recounted this momentous event on his Twitter account

“I have yesterday moved a mountain through faith. Less than 4,000 souls changed camp!” he tweeted.

In his closing sermon during the baptism rite, Bro. Eli welcomed the newly baptized and reminded them to stay in faith and hold on to the doctrines of Christ until the end.  He also encouraged them to offer thanksgiving to God as it is the first good thing they need to do to express their gratitude to Him.  The ceremony lasted for about 11 hours.

This mass baptism was the result of the 7-day Live Mass Indoctrination conducted by Bro. Eli that started last February 8.  On the first day of the indoctrination, 12,000 visitors crowded the MCGI locales as reported by Bro. Daniel Razon, the Church Vice-Presiding Minister.

MCGI regularly conducts weekly baptism at ADD Convention Center in Pampanga, the Church headquarters, and mass baptism after every mass indoctrination session.  Every baptism yields hundreds of God-abiding people.
