Examine the Verse
Malachi 2:10
This verse is claimed to provide the basis of the Iglesia ni Cristo belief
that the "God and Father" of the Lord Jesus Christ and His apostles is also
the "God and Father" of Moses, Abraham and the ancient Israelites.

  Do we not all have one Father?
Did not one God create us?
Why do we profane the covenant of our ancestors by being unfaithful to one another?

(Malachi 2:10,  New International Version)
  Iglesia ni Cristo belief in God and Jesus Christ:
Iglesia ni Cristo believes in the absolute oneness of God, that "the Only True God is the Father" in heaven; The Father is the Lord God Almighty, the Creator of all things. God is Spirit, eternal, immortal and invisible; He is the God and Father of Jesus Christ and His Apostles; and that of Moses,
Abraham and the ancient Israelites.
Iglesia ni Cristo believes that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God. As the Son of God,
Jesus is a Man.  However, Jesus is not an ordinary man but a "very special Man",
who was sanctified; made Lord, Christ, Savior, Mediator and Judge by God.
  Apostle's admonition, warning and unique way of teaching:
1. No prophecy of scripture is a matter of personal interpretation. (II Pt. 1:20, NAB)
2. Do not go beyond  what is written. (I Cor. 4:6, NIV)
 3. We do not use words of human wisdom. We speak words given to us by the Spirit,
using the Spirit's words to explain spiritual truths. (1 Cor. 2:13, NLT)
  Points to Consider:  
  1.  Notice that the above verse was written by Prophet Malachi of ancient Israel in the Old Testament times.
The verse clearly says, "Do we not all have one Father?
Did not one God create us?" 
Thus confirming that the ancient Israelites believe in one God the Father who is the Creator as taught by the Prophet Moses in Deuteronomy 6:4 and Deuteronomy 32:6.
