The Iglesia ni Cristo (Church of Christ) is a Christian religion whose primary purpose is to worship the Almighty God based on His teachings as taught by the Lord Jesus Christ and as recorded in the Bible. The Church of Christ is a church for every one who will heed the call of God and embrace its faith — regardless of his or her nationality, cultural background, social standing, economic status, and educational attainment.
Today, the membership of the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) comprises at least 110 nationalities. It maintains about 104 ecclesiastical districts in the Philippines and in 100 more countries and territories in the six inhabited continents of the world.
July 27, 2014 marks the Centennial Celebration of INC.
This church, which is considered as one of the fastest growing religions in the world, was first registered in the Republic of the Philippines on July 27, 1914 with its first congregation situated in Punta, Sta. Ana, Manila.
The Department of Justice has already cleared that there is no legal impediment to the resolution of both Houses declaring the founding anniversary of the Iglesia Ni Cristo a "special non-working holiday". With respect to both upper and lower house resolution and to more than 28 million of Iglesia Ni Cristo members around the world observing the occasion, it would be noteworthy to recognize July 27 of 2014 as a National Non-working Holiday in the Philippines.
