Members Church of God International, abbreviated as MCGI, is an international Christian religious organization with headquarters in the Philippines.
In 2004, its registered name was changed to "Members Church of God International" (Tagalog: Mga Kaanib sa Iglesia ng Dios na Pandaigdig) in line with the church's overseas expansion.
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.
On September 27, 2004, the MTRCB extended the suspension to three months.
Soriano challenged the action in court, arguing that the suspension imposed by the MTRCB constituted prior restraint on the media and that his language during the show's August 10, 2004 broadcast was not obscene and offensive. Soriano filed a motion seeking the reversal of its April 2009 decision.
