The League of Provinces of the Philippines (LPP) composed of governors has cited the phenomenal growth nationally as well as globally of the Iglesia ni Cristo religious sect which is celebrating its 97th anniversary on July 27.

The INC has 5,000 churches, 717 of them outside the Philippines, with followers comprising 108 nationalities and ethnic origins.

“On behalf of my fellow governors, I would like to congratulate INC Executive Minister Brother Eduardo Manalo and its members for the phenomenal growth of this homegrown church that is now present in 89 countries and four territories worldwide,” said Oriental Mindoro Gov. and LPP president Alfonso Umali Jr.

The LPP also lauded Manalo for immediately reaching out to INC members to edify the church following the death of his father, Executive Minister Eraño Manalo, in August 2009.
