Metropolitan Bible Baptist Church - Al Ghusais Congregation
The history of the ministry dated back to 11 years of existence having started
in the house of Lysander deCastro who has already migrated to Canada and left
the ministry into the capable hand of preacher Nonoy Nacion. In July of 1998,
majority of the Um Al Quwain members resigned from the MBBC while about 13
members chose to continue under the pastoral care of Dr. Benny M. Abante Jr.
The Um Al Quwain and Dubai members who preferred to remain with the MBBC met at
the Castros residence in Deira for their services. Pastor Abante has asked Bro.
Sander to lead and feed the flock.
The Lord continued to bless the work with people getting saved and baptized.
After about a year of existence, the congregation was averaging 35 adults in
attendance. It continue to grow in number and spirit. In March 2000, the
congregtion rented and moved to a bigger place for its services.
In April 2000, Preacher's Sander employment contract with his company expired
which required him and his family to leave Dubai.
In their absence, Pastor Jun Nolaco and his wife conducted a training of men and
women in various aspect of church ministries.
Currently, MBBC Dubai is under the leadership of preacher Nonoy Nacion.
The church in its present status is performing a dynamic ministry supported and
guided by its matured families. It is reaching its goals in attendance numbers
and sacrificial giving of its members.
