Manolo Dalman



I was born on January 14, 1953. I am married to Anita P. Barete, and blessed with five children namely: Jessie Mae, Harvey Darell, Lester Keith,Jadiel Mishal, Jahnnah Azriel.

I was born in Potungan, Dapitan City toRestituto I. Dalman, Sr., and Rafaela P. Lobino. Igraduated from Living Word Bible Institute with thehope that it was needed to become an effectiveMinister of Christ Jesus, which should not be theidea.

I started preaching at the age of 16 at Grace Gospel Church of Christ. This was the same church where my family attended church services. At that time, I never knew about the big difference between Arminian doctrine and the Doctrine of Grace. As an Arminian, I believed that Grace should be offered to men and those who accept it would be saved and those who do not would go to Hell. So, man has all the power or will to choose. Now I think of this belief as a great mistake I did to my personal Savior, Christ Jesus my Lord.

In 1991, I attended a seminar at Davao City. Pastor Lawrence Crawford of California spearheaded this seminar. The topic discussed was the five points of Grace, which has the acronym, TULIP. The idea that "Man can not do anything to save himself because he is spiritually dead in the face of God" was new to me.

In March 1994, Ronald Jacutin invited me to attend a meeting headed by two visiting Elders: Jeff Harris and Norvel Mann. As Brother Jacutin is dear to me, I attended. I brought my younger brother Resti, and Ernesto Talao who is my very dear friend in the Lord. The purpose of going there was not to join the Primitive Baptist Church, but just to listen to the ministers and inquire about their doctrines. However, within three days of listening to the doctrinal stand of Brother Jeff Harris, my thoughts were completely opened to the living

truth about God's precious grace and that Jesus died for His sheep for whom He chose and whose names were written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world (Eph 1:4- 11; Rev 17:8). Because of this strong conviction, Elder Jeff Harris baptized three of us on March 5, 1994. We were the first Primitive Baptist members in the Philippines.

That was the ending of Arminian belief and the beginning of the truth of the Lord's doctrine and practice. I then left the Missionary Baptist Church, which had I served for 14 years with a total of 374 members. In July 1994, we invited Elders Jeff Harris and Gus Harter for the purpose of baptism and dedication of a new church building. There were forty-four regenerated souls

who were baptized, followed by an ordination of nine men, mostly former Missionary Baptist preachers.

On July 10, 1994, the constitution of the first Primitive Baptist Church in the Philippines was approved by Eureka Primitive Baptist Church in Georgia, USA, which is faithfully cared by Elder Jeff Harris. A twin church was then born in the Philippines - the Eureka Primitive Baptist Church-Phil, which the Lord our God gives, for us to serve Him faithfully until we met Him in the air.
