WHERE IN METRO MANILA: The Iglesia Ni Cristo Central Temple




The Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church of Christ) headquarters is located at Central Avenue, New Era in Quezon City, just north of University of the Philippines - Diliman.

The central office is one of several structures inside the central office complex. It houses the permanent offices of the central administration and most of the church's departments. It is here where about a thousand INC professionals and volunteers hold office.

It was formerly located in Manila during its early years, then in San Juan, and later in Makati before moving to its present site.

The Central Temple is the centerpiece of the INC central complex.

The fully air-conditioned temple was principally designed by Carlos Antonio Santos-Viola.

The Central Temple is its main house of worship. It consists of eight main areas where worship services can be held, the Main Hall located in the center of the building, has a total seating capacity of approximately 3,000: Main Nave, 1652; Balcony, 720; Choir Loft, 200; Nursery, 104; Side Chapels, (east and west wings) have a combined seating capacity of 1,931; Sanctuary which can seat a total of a little less than 2,000 people.

The 200-seater main Choir loft is equipped with a pipe organ, hymnal page indicator and a huge wide LCD TV. 

The 20-ton pipe organ with distinctive features is considered the first of its kind in the world, according to its makers Georgia-based A.E. Schlueter Pipe Organ Company. It took the international company 14 months to install the pipe organ at the INC Central Temple. The INC’s main temple along Commonwealth, Quezon City, had to be renovated to house the 3,162 special individual pipes - the longest of which measured 23 feet, while the shortest was eight inches long. The pipe-organ at the INC Central Temple was the first of its kind, in the sense that it was composed of three separate pipe organs – one at the main nave with a main console and two smaller ones built at the Temple’s left and side wings with its own consoles. 

The glass enclosed observation rooms are fully air-conditioned and equipped with translator equipment intended for foreign members and visitors who are not at ease with the local language.

Another worship area, located at the ground floor of the building, is the Sanctuary. It serves as a holding area in the event of an overflow in the Main Hall from which the service will be transmitted through a video circuit installed down in area on such eventualities.

Among the other buildings on the site are the six-storey Central Office building, the Central Pavilion with a capacity of 30,000 people, the Tabernacle with a capacity of 4,000 people which is just to the west of the temple where God's Messenger Bro. Felix Y. Manalo is buried, the New Era University, and the New Era General Hospital.
