With the death of Felix Y Manalo on April 12, 1963, Iglesia's critics predicted the church's decline and eventual fall To them, the church's popularity was due mainly to the charisma and leadership of Felix Y Manalo Barely a month after assuming his role as spiritual leader of the church, the young Manalo began visiting congregations nationwide At every location he visited, he officiated worship services and staged massive religious rallies in public plazas During this period of transition in what critics thought was the most vulnerable period of the church, Manalo further consolidated the gains of the church

In 1947, Manalo became the General Treasurer of the church He was later elected as successor to Felix Y Manalo by provincial ministers as early as 1953 In 1957 he became the District Minister of Manila Very few people outside of the church gave Manalo's leadership potential enough credit He would later initiate significant moves that would make the church to what it is today

Manalo demonstrated the church responsiveness to the needs of the poor Even before the government initiated agrarian reforms, Manalo established model land reforms In 1965, the first of the resettlement farms was Maligaya farm in Palayan City, Nueva Ecija, Philippines Similar projects were established in Cavite, Rizal and other provinces
