BULACAN, Philippines – More than a million members of the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) marked their 100th anniversary in their newly inaugurated Ciudad de Victoria (City of Victory) in Bocaue, Bulacan on Sunday, July 27.
Iglesia ni Cristo Executive Minister Eduardo V Manalo released this estimate during the INC’s worship service in the Philippine Arena that began at around 5:30 am on Sunday. The indoor arena, the world’s largest, is the centerpiece of Ciudad de Victoria.
Thousands of members flocked to Bulacan ahead of the celebration and spent the night there. Many of them slept on mats, while some kept themselves awake by eating and chatting with friends.
