“It is with deep sadness, yet with full faith in the Almighty, that we announce the passing of our beloved and one and only Bro. Eliseo “Eli” Soriano – a faithful preacher, brother, father and grandfather to many,” the group said in a statement.
Soriano was well regarded as the host of Ang Dating Daan, a radio and television show that began broadcasting on the radio in 1980. By 1983, the show became a TV program as well.
Ang Dating Daan actually airs in 73 countries worldwide, according to members of the Church of God International.
Soriano was born in 1947 in Pasay City and was educated in Pampanga.
Soriano was the “Overall Servant” of the Members Church of God International, a Christian religious organization with headquarters in Pampanga.
He was well known for “Bible Expositions” in which visitors directly or through live video streaming or telephone calls pose impromptu questions.
