I responded to all his essential arguments and I pray that this apologetic response would help the readers to understand the real issue and see how deceptive Eli Soriano is when he used our publications to make it appear that we are wrong; but the truth proves otherwise as you will see.

Importante ba sa kaligtasan ang bautismo at relihiyon? Synopsis: Is baptism and religion unimportant, as preached by other pastors? What does the Bible call pastors who do not teach the complete words of God?

The Members of the Church of God International denies several doctrines such as the Trinity and salvation by grace alone.They believe that Gentile nations, including the Philippines, are partakers of the promise of eternal life, through belief in Jesus Christ and the gospel and are not authorized by God to establish their own church, but mere members associated with the same "body" or the church written in the gospel by accepting it and executing the doctrines written by the apostles.Guided by this scriptural principle, the church's registered name contains descriptive words "ang mga kaanib" in Tagalog or "members" in English to emphasize the group's association today, as "members" of the "Church of God" that is already established long time ago and was written in the Bible.On April 25, 1980, in compliance with government regulations, Eliseo Soriano registered the group with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as Ang Mga Kaanib sa Iglesia ng Dios Kay Kristo Hesus, Haligi at Saligan ng Katotohan, sa Bansang Pilipinas (English: Members of the Church of God in Christ Jesus, Pillar and Ground of Truth in the Philippines).In 2004, its registered name was changed to "Members Church of God International" (Tagalog: Mga Kaanib sa Iglesia ng Dios na Pandaigdig) in line with the church's overseas expansion.
