This prompt the birth of another program in Latin America, O Caminho Antigo in Brazil, which soon become the home the televangelist.  El Camino Antiguo and O Caminho Antigo is the counterpart of the longest running religious program in the Philippines – Ang Dating Daan.

The Presiding Minister of the Members Church of God International, Bro. Eli Soriano is greeted through birthday song. The pouring of the bretheren in Brazil and going back to their respective countries after, made him utter this words : I wonder if there will be another next time? I dream of another next time.”  In James 4:14 says,  “Whereas ye know not that shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.”

Adversary of Faith

Bro. Eli faced many different religious denominations back in the Philippines. Chased and tracked them all one by one, not a single debate he has lost. He had proved over and over that he is as they call him, Biblical genius. Despite the clear teachings, there are still few who are convinced. Enemies of faith went as far as following him in Brazil to give out  pamphlets to make money. By putting all the cards in the table and transparent in all of the transactions, he pointed out that there is no room for doubts – in money and most of important, salvation of soul.

The 5,344 Newly Baptized Brethren for the 1st Quarter of 2019 proves that more and more souls are hungry for the truth.


Before the event ends, a loud thunder was heard as Bro. Eli  discussed the verse in Malachi 1:10-11 says “Who is there even among you that would shut the doors for nought? neither do ye kindle fire on mine altar for nought. I have no pleasure in you, saith the Lord of hosts, neither will I accept an offering at your hand.  11, For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same my name shall be great among the Gentiles; and in every place incense shall be offered unto my name, and a pure offering: for my name shall be great among the heathen, saith the Lord of hosts.


Birthday message of Bro. Eli Soriano to brethren:

“Sana magkaroon tayong lahat ng kagalingan. Huwag ng patulan ang mga nanglalait sa akin. Nasasaktan ang kalooban ko dahil alam ko ang may gawa nyan ay ang demonyo. Huwag tayong gumanti ng alipusta sa alipusta. Matuto tayo ng paggalang sa salita ng Dios. Magpakita tayo ng paggalang sa salita ng Dios.”
