Iglesia ni Cristo (Church of Christ)
A distinctive feature of the Manila skyline, the green-and-white gothic spires of the churches of this powerful and influential religious group are as familiar a sight to Filipinos as McDonald's golden arches. Iglesia ni Cristo (also known as INC) has a big following in Manila and throughout the country. The churches, unlike the humbler structures of other Christian denominations, always sport a fresh coat of paint.

INC: Remarkable and God blessed edifices
By A Yahoo! Contributor, 22/12/2005
The Iglesia Ni Cristo administration is very awesome as to how they build such breathtaking worship edifices...
I really admire the unity that stands out among the brethrens and the brotherly love they have.
No doubt that God is with them,
see it as to whatever field and aspect.
So, if I were you, don't just sit and look at their chapels
explore, discover, research what's behind their doctrines.. like me- and you'll see..... (",)
I had a chance to visit the central temple 2 years ago in my first visit to the Philippines since I was 4 years of age. The compound of the INC (central) is breath taking with the beautiful architecture. Seeing the view from the outside, it is more amazing in the inside!!!...
As the airplane I am on touched down Manila's airport, a magnificent structure caught my eye. I asked about and later learned that it is the church of the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church of Christ). I thought that it was the only one, but later I have discovered that numerous of these church design are scattered on the skyline of Manila and other suburbs. The largest of which is one in Diliman, Quezon City which houses the religion's central office. It also has a museum, a college and several other buildings in its environs. I think it is a unique Philippine architecture which is modern and gives a fresh perspective of church building designs
