The Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) was officially registered by Felix Manalo, a Catholic who became dissatisfied with theological teachings he grew up with. Manalo came up with new-found doctrines that have become the foundation of a new church which he initially established in Sta Ana, Manila. From its humble beginnings in Manila, the INC has gained a nationwide, and even worldwide, following. After 99 years, INC has remained alive, and has become a significant part of history. Its large following has become a vital part of the country’s social and political life through the years.
