    • Abstract:
      The Iglesia ni Cristo, which means “Church of Christ” in the Philippine language of Tagalog, is an indigenous Filipino Christian church with about three million followers worldwide. It is among the largest independent religious groups in the Philippines, with approximately 2.5 million people claiming membership in the church in the 2010 Filipino census. Despite the comparatively low number of worshippers, especially when compared to more mainstream religious groups such as the Roman Catholic Church, the members of the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) are highly visible in Filipino society. In the twenty-first century, INC has grown rapidly, and as of 2018, the church claims to have 7,000 individual congregations in more than one hundred countries worldwide.Anniversary stamp marking INC's centennial celebration in 1914 and honoring Felix Manalo, first Executive Minister of the Church.Philippine Postal Corporation [Public domain] The INC Central Temple in Quezon City, Manila, dominates the city's skyline.Andrew Moore from Johannesburg, South Africa [CC BY-SA 2.0 (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0)]
