Iglesia ni Cristo architecture
Not much is written about the so-called Iglesia ni Cristo architecture as to what design elements it incorporates. What we can present to you for now are comments from other people, excerpts from articles written about it and chapel pictures on how it slowly evolved over time. Based on comments from other people, one thing is sure about the present state of the Iglesia ni Cristo architecture—it is unique, modern, impressive, magnificent and beautiful.
Iglesia ni Cristo church buildings (temples/chapels) serve as places of worship and other religious functions, are "vehicles for glorifying God." These are described by Culture and customs of the Philippines, a book published by Greenwood Publishing Group, as structures "which employ exterior neo-Gothic vertical support columns with tall narrow windows between, interlocking trapezoids, and rosette motifs, as well as tower and spires." There are multiple entrances leading to the main sanctuary, where males and females sit on either side of the aisle facing a dais where sermons are made. The choir loft is located behind the dais, and in larger churches, baptistry pools for immersion baptism are located at the back of the church.
