Let us join hands and welcome all people wish to join our congregation. Thanks be to God. Salamat naman at hindi lahat ng hukom sa Pilipinas ay pumapatol sa mga inimbentong kaso ng desperado nang liderato ng INC. Nalubak sila nang malalim.

Lahat naman ng ind ng INC kay Bro Eli ay walang basehan. Makonsensya na sana ang mga ministrong ito. Masyado nang lasing ang INC sa kaluwalhatian at papuri ng mga pulitiko.
