The Members Church of God International, is a Christian denomination in the Philippines more popularly known through its television program, Ang Dating Daan (ADD).
Although the Members Church of God International does not keep a formal count of members, it estimates to have millions of members, more than 5,000 church locales in the Philippines, and around 1000 international church locales in North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, Middle East and Australia.
It is not related to the many Church of God groups that descended from the Barney Creek Meeting House revival of the late 19th century in the United States.
The Members Church of God International in the Philippines rooted from a similar denomination, the Iglesia ng Dios kay Kristo Hesus, Haligi at Suhay ng Katotohanan (Church of God in Christ Jesus, Pillar and Support of the Truth) which was first led by Nicolas Antiporda Perez in Pulilan, Bulacan, Philippines in 1928.
For them, the church's primary objective, as commanded by Jesus Christ, is to propagate the gospel unto all nations until the consummation of the ages, convert sinners to believe and glorify God and to make them qualify for the eternal life in heaven.
They believe in God the Father, Jesus Christ the Son, and the Holy Spirit but they adopt a nontrinitarianism orientation, rejecting the Trinitarian concept that there is "one God in three co-equal persons", which for them is against the Bible.
