The early months of 2009 saw the Church introduced in Latin America.
A schism in MCGI happened in 2009 when Willy Santiago, one of the bible readers of Brother Eliseo Soriano in his radio and TV programs had a dispute over the church leadership succession and "erratic" changes in church doctrines (such as prostrating towards the east in prayer and Sabbath).
Members Church of God International, abbreviated as MCGI, is an international Christian religious organization with headquarters in the Philippines.
The organization is managed by the MCGI Central Administration under the MCGI Workers Ministry.
They believe that Gentile nations, including the Philippines, are partakers of the promise of eternal life, through belief in Jesus Christ and the gospel and are not authorized by God to establish their own church, but mere members associated with the same "body" or the church written in the gospel by accepting it and executing the doctrines written by the apostles.
Guided by this scriptural principle, the church's registered name contains descriptive words "ang mga kaanib" in Tagalog or "members" in English to emphasize the group's association today, as "members" of the "Church of God" that is already established long time ago and was written in the Bible.
In 2004, the church changed its name to "Members Church of God International".
On January 7, 2006, the first live Bible exposition in the United States was held in Los Angeles, California.
