WHERE IN METRO MANILA: The Iglesia Ni Cristo Museum and Gallery




Members of the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church of Christ) are not the only visitors of the Iglesia Ni Cristo Museum and Gallery. People who want to learn and revisit the history of the Church, students and teachers from different educational institutions include this site in their itinerary and schedule of activities.

The INC Museum and Gallery was established for the collection, restoration and conservation of all materials relevant to the history and culture of the Church.

The Museum has permanent historical exhibits and organizes exhibits of art produced by Church members.

The museum is located at the INC Central Complex in Quezon City where the Central Temple is also situated.

The museum's present theme is "The Nation of God: Church of the Prophesy."

What's inside the museum? A wooden mural which presents the history of the Church. The photographic exhibit highlights the Church history in photos. The restoration exhibit features original inauguration scrolls. The museum also preserves documents from international leaders and memorabilia from brethren around the globe.

An interactive map shows the Church present condition around the world.

One of the best parts of the museum is a 12-diorama exhibit which presents artistic three-dimensional (3D) highlights of Church history.

You will be inspired as you watch a short movie presentation in the Museum Theater. In the AG&P Worker's Barracks Recreation, you will see a recreation of the room used in the first Bible exposition and worship service with a unique documentary presentation.

You will also see the FYM Office Recreation which presents the recreation of one of the offices used by Bro. Felix Y. Manalo. Almost all things there are original and preserved by the administration. Sub-sections include his documents and memorabilia like his wallet, coat and belt.

Photographic history of the buildings used as Central Office since the time of Bro. Felix Y. Manalo are displayed at the INC Central Offices exhibit. A video exhibit of the Lingap sa Mamamayan or AID for HUMANITY and other Guinness Book of World Record recognition are also presented. A photo and video interactive presentation of the recent pastoral visitations, chapel dedications and ordinations of new ministers by the Executive Minister are also there.


You may also visit the two other museums of the Church.

The old house of worship of the INC in Punta, Sta. Ana, Manila, built in 1930s and dedicated by Brother Felix Y. Manalo himself, was turned into a museum. This landmark was well-preserved in its pre-war glory. As part of the preservation work, the old grounds were expanded and an extensive restoration work was done from 1998-2000 to bring back the look of the structure as it was when it was dedicated in 1937. Visiting the INC Museum in Punta, Sta. Ana, Manila, one need to make an appointment. You may call 981-4311 or talk to the INC Museum and Gallery staff when you visit the it in Quezon City.

The very place where the first worship service outside the country in Hawaii in 1968, officiated by Brother EraƱo G. Manalo, was also converted to a Museum.

The new museum is intended to set a new standard in our country using state-of-the-art technologies. The first floor of the mew museum will house the Children Museum, audio-visual room and the moving-gallery. The second floor will contain the Fast Lane, the third floor will showcase the history of the Church, the fourth floor will showcase the thematic section of the museum, and the fifth floor will house the office and storage room of the museum.
