The Iglesia Ni Cristo belief about God's commissioning of messengers

Doctrines, Beliefs and Practices


“We believe that God sent Messengers to preach His words”

We believe that the Bible is the word of God, however, the Bible is not an “open book.” God has purposely hidden His words in mystery (cf. Rom. 16:25), that’s why those who strive to understand the Scriptures through their own worldly knowledge will never able to come to the knowledge of the truth (cf. II Tim. 3:7). How then man will be able to understand the truth written in the Bible? According to the Bible, through God’s messengers:

“It is the duty of priests to teach the true knowledge of God. People should go to them to learn my will, because they are the messengers of the LORD Almighty.” (Malachi 2:7, TEV)

People must go to those sent by God (the messengers of the Lord) to learn His will. Regarding the inportance of the messengers of God to understand the words of God written in the Bible, Apostle Paul said:

“And how can they preach unless they are sent…” (Rom. 10:15, NIV).

The Lord Jesus Christ also made testimony regarding the importance of God’s messengers:

“I tell you the truth, whoever accepts anyone I send accepts me; and whoever accepts me accepts the one who sent me” (John 13:20, NIV).

Thus, the reason why the Lord Jesus Christ tells us gto believe in God’s messengers:

“Jesus answered and said to them, "This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent.” (John 6:29 NKJV)

We believe that the late Brother Felix Y. Manalo is God’s last messenger, the fulfillment of the biblical prophecies regarding the “Angel” (“messenger”) from the east (cf. Rev. 7:2-3) who would preached to God’s sons and daughters from the “ends of the earth” (cf. Is. 43:5-6; 41:9-10; 46:11).
