350 Houses of Worship Dedicated in 2016

350 Houses of Worship Built from January to December of 2016:

LAST December 3, 2016, Brother Eduardo V. Manalo, Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) Executive Minister, officiated the special worship service and led thededication of the new House of Worship in Macabud, in Rodriguez, Rizal. This was also the establishment of the Locale Congregation of Macabud, under the jurisdiction of the Ecclesiastical District of Central. 

During the worship service, Brother Eduardo V. Manalo reported that only from January to December of 2016 the Iglesia Ni Cristo completed the construction and dedicated to God 350 Houses of Worship, 340 here in the Philippines and 10 in different parts of the world. Hundreds are still under construction and will be finished and dedicated to God next year.

Brother Eduardo V. Manalo also explain through the words of God written in the Bible why the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) continue building houses of worship. While other religions all throughout the world are selling their houses of worship because there are no longer worshippers attending their worship services, the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) continues the building of houses of worship because the Lod God commanded us to do so:

Haggai 1:8 NKJV
“Go up to the mountains and bring wood and build the temple, that I may take pleasure in it and be glorified," says the LORD.”
Capetown, South Africa

“It is not the will of any men, but thewill of God why we build houses of worships” emphasized Brother Eduardo V. Manalo. Indeed, the Bible explicitly states that God takes pleasure and glorified when we build Temple or Houses of Worship. Giving glory to the Lord God is one of the primary reason of calling His servants from the ends of the earth, from the east, from the islands of the sea:

Isaiah 24:15-16 NIV
“Therefore in the east give glory to the LORD; exalt the name of the LORD, the God of Israel, in the islands of the sea.  From the ends of the earth we hear singing: ‘Glory to the Righteous One…”

Indeed, this prophecy was fulfilled with the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ). The “ends of the earth” is an expression indication the time when the end of the world or end of the earth(the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ) is near (Matt. 24:3 and 33). The Philippines where the Church of Christ started is a country in the Far East, and this country is composed of 7,100 islands.

Thus, whatever happens in this world, the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church OfChrist) will continue giving praises and glory to the Lord God through building houses of worship.
