Templo da Assembleia de Deus em San Antonio nas Philippinas.
San Antonio, Philippines
The Assembly Of God Church, San Antonio,
Zambales, Philippines started in 1979 through the pioneering efforts of the then
newly wed couple, Pastor Eduard and Sister Vivian Advincula, together with an
English couple Ian and Pauline, who at that time were missionaries sent to San
Antonio from Calvary Church, Brownhills, UK.
From nothing, they scouted for a place
and shared the Word of God by God’s grace and guidance. Praise and Worship
started in a small rented room, until such time that they had to rent a separate
and bigger place for holding services because the number of members grew as the
days went by. Glory to God!
Crusades were held and Pastor Sid Ceney
from Calvary Church was the quest speaker. Two to three families gave their
hearts to the Lord at that time. From this the AOG Church in San Antonio was
born. Since Ian and Pauline, and Pastor Sid returned to England they have
continued to raise funds for the AOG Church in San Antonio.
In 1982, a lot for the Church building
was acquired through the help of Sister Pauline and her family and some generous
people from her place. Praise God because in just a few months, the church
building was erected. Church services then became more comfortable for the
members, and Bible Studies grew as new members were added.
