Ang Dating Daan
Ang Dating Daan is the longest-running religious show that started in the Philippines and is now¬†being broadcast in different countries and in different languages.¬†Originally a 30-minute radio program in 1980, Ang Dating Daan has progressed today with the inclusion of its interactive segment, Itanong Mo Kay Soriano – a live question-and-answer portion to¬†address the audience’s biblical queries.
Ang Dating Daan is produced by the Members Church of God International¬†(MCGI), presided by Bro. Eliseo Soriano, who also hosts the religious program.
Ang Dating Daan is known for its straight-forward and frank broadcasting of the Gospel¬†from the Bible, courtesy of Bro. Eli himself.¬†This makes Ang Dating Daan unique¬†among other religious programs in the country and abroad.
The program is now prominent in South and Central America under the English title, The Old Path, and dubbed in¬†respective languages of the countries. It also airs in some parts of Europe, North¬†America, Asia and African territories. Ang Dating Daan is also being broadcast in¬†multimedia particularly though live streaming.

Bro. Eliseo Soriano
Through the years, propagation of the word of God in the Bible had always been Bro. Eli¬†Soriano’s advocacy. At the tender age of 19, he had started to preach the word of God¬†unceasingly.¬†At present, he is the Presiding Minister of Members Church of God International for over¬†4 decades now. His multimedia broadcasts, which started over radio in 1980,¬†are unceasing¬†and are reaching nations in almost every continent. “Sowing the Seeds of Truth on the Web.” The slogans’ mission is to accommodate¬†English speaking foreign nationals and serve as channel for the visitors’ spiritual¬†queries – with the assistance of the Internet. Through the successful propagation¬†using all possible media, hundreds and thousands of souls are being¬†reaped all over the world. Bro. Eli Soriano received countless recognition through his preachings. An example is¬†The Open Web awards by Mashable.com that hailed Bro. Eli as 2010’s Most Educational to¬†Follow with his official blog, esoriano.wordpress.com. As Bro. Eli’s mission of propagation widens, he is forced to leave the country and¬†introduced the homegrown format of Bible Expositions and Itanong Mo Kay Soriano¬†to the people at South, Central and North America, Europe, Africa and Asia, and¬†was well-received by the respective nationals. Most of these territories are non-english¬†speaking nations but within a short span of time, Bro. Eli had learned to speak their native¬†tongues.
