Felix Manalo Plot
In the movie, Dennis Trillo plays the character of Felix Manalo. He was raised as a Catholic and was even on the path of becoming a priest. However, he had some falling out with the Catholic Church and began to question some of its teachings.
During the American colonization of the Philippines, Felix then began to study several Protestant sects, but he was not satisfied with all of these. He secluded himself in a room for three days and three nights with religious literature wherein he claimed found out the meaning of true religion.
He then decided to start his own ministry which is now known as the Iglesia Ni Cristo. Expansion followed as several congregations were built in the provinces. Iglesia Ni Cristo members grew bigger and bigger as years go by, with its members recognizing Felix Manalo’s leadership and spiritual guidance.
He spent the rest of his life serving the church he painstakingly built until his death at the age of 76. His son Eraño assumed the leadership role of the church upon his death.
