The Lord goes before us while we wait on Him! Since 2016, Pastor Eric and Pastora Marivic Antonio sowed prayers and waited for the Lord to confirm their plans to plant a church in Camiling, Tarlac, the hometown of Pastor Eric. The great challenge found was that Camiling is a 7.5 hour travel from their home church, Goshen Christian Community Center, in Cabuyao, Laguna. With each visit to Camiling, Pastor found that his burden to share the Gospel of Jesus with his hometown friends and acquaintances became stronger and stronger. He had found that over time, some of them had even passed on without surrendering their lives to Christ, giving an ever growing sense of urgency for ministry to begin. Finally in 2019, the Lord confirmed the call for the ministry of a church plant in Camiling to begin. Pastors Eric and Marivic moved forward with these goals in mind: first to share the Gospel to the lost, and secondly, to develop church leaders and serve the community by offering Biblical and Leadership Training with the opening of the Camiling, Tarlac PST – International Maranatha Institute study center.
