The end of my search for the real and true light.
(Life and Priesthood)
Theophilus Darku Ghana, West Africa and the U.S.A. Catholic
Former Religion:
     On the 27th I went to see Brother Raul Nepumoceno, the person who was leaving the job I was supposed to take. After describing everything he asked If I would take it. I told him I would. Then came the switch. I told him I used to be a Catholic priest. I told him I just clung to my Jesus—my God and all. Then came the retort: "Jesus is not God". I said, "Look here, this is what I have been taught in the Catholic Church and this is what everybody believes in the Catholic Church.” Then he said, "The minister of my church can prove to you from the Bible that Jesus is not God but a mediator.” I told him I could also prove from the Bible that Jesus is God. So he invited me to visit his church on Sunday, the 14th of may.  . . . . . .
Iglesia ni Cristo:
     After the worship service I went to see Bro. Rizalino Santos who was going to give me proofs that Jesus Christ is not god. At first I thought I could easily refute his arguments with two verses from the Bible to show that Jesus is God—Isaiah 9:6 and John 1:14. However, he took the wind out of my sails when right at the start he quoted I Cor. 4:6, which admonishes not to go beyond what is written. How I admire the calmness and dedication of Bro. Santos that day. I was convinced that Jesus Christ is not God . He proved it beyond doubt and I was ready to get up and leave, when he said, "Now let me show you who Jesus Christ really is, from the Bible.”  I was really amazed. My treasured verse, Isaiah 9:6, couldn’t prove the divinity of Christ. . . . . . .

"Why I Joined The Iglesia Ni Cristo" Innocent E. Okekeh Onitsha, Anambra State, Nigeria Anglican (Priest) Former Religion:
     when I began attending the worship services of the Iglesia ni Cristo in places like Sampaloc, Manila, and Cavite. I did it on my own volition. Nobody in or outside the Philippines coerced, compelled, or even introduced me to the Iglesia ni Cristo. . . . . Another reason why I left the Anglican Church is because of its tolerance to unbiblical practices like divorce, consecration of women as priest, and same sex marriage. Moreover, the political problems and dis-unity I observe in my former  church is very discouraging.
Iglesia ni Cristo:
     So, why did I leave my former church and join the Iglesia ni Cristo? First, I was spiritually convinced that the Iglesia ni Cristo is the only true Church. It does not hide the truth. It does not add to or subtract teachings from the Bible. It is not a Church wherein the doctrines and practices are a mixture of beliefs where anything can go in. The Iglesia ni Cristo is unique, the only Church I have seen in my life that is biblical. . . . . The Iglesia ni Cristo does not worship idols or graven images. There is nothing like human tradition imposed in worship. . . . . One major component of my conversion to the Iglesia ni Cristo is its clear and precise doctrines regarding the true nature of God and the Lord Jesus Christ. Unlike other churches that have confusing doctrines such as the Trinity, the Iglesia ni Cristo upholds these biblical truths.

My Transfor-mation" Kholeka J. Mjele King William's Town, South Africa Methodist (member) Former Religion:
     I was born in 1952 to a devout Methodist family, and attended the services regularly during my childhood. It was different in my adulthood, however. When I was living in Bhisho, the capital of Eastern Cape Province in South Africa, I was far from the nearest Methodist church and can no longer attend as often as I wanted to. My job as a nurse meant irregular shift-work, which further hampered my church attendances.
Iglesia ni Cristo:
     I was then invited further by the brethren to attend instruction in biblical doctrines, which I also accepted, as my curiosity about the Church was growing. Most of the Bible lessons were new to me, and I never heard them before. I always carried a pen and paper to write down notes, and to latter check them in the Bible to see if they are actually true. . . . I am still in the nursing field, now a chief professional nurse, in charge of a Primary Health Care Clinic, catering to the health needs of a large local community. However, I do not let my work interfere with my spiritual obligations, as I know that every success I have received is a blessing from God. . . . . I am now a deaconess in the Church (the first South African , and in Africa), and my daughter, Namhla, is one of the first South African choir members.
