MERE IMAGE, an organization formed by a dedicated group of young people, was first originated in the city of Lynwood about the fall of 1987. With a desire to be personally involved in the Lord’s work, they found a common interest in singing, so they came together uniting their talents and presenting the message of Christ and His soon return to others in songs. Our church eventually merged with the Whittier Seventh-Day Adventist Church in 1993, which is now considered our home church.
Under the Direction of Henry Murray Sr., Mere Image has provided music for different organizations throughout Southern California over the years. Their presentations include numerous concerts for Seventh Day and Non-Seventh Day Adventists’ worship services year round. The Group has also shared their faith in songs with, Nursing Home Patients at different locations, Reformatory School Inmates, Southern California Conference Youth Rally, West-Point of Evangelism for the Pacific Union, Camp meetings, and on a regular schedule, provide special music including an Annual Concert for their church services in Whittier. Some Members of the Group are also involved in their own witnessing outreach activities of their choice. As part of its mission, the Group has created a Scholarship Fund through which they can assist needy students who are attending our private Christian schools and have financial difficulties either to register for the new school year or can’t take their exams due to unpaid bills; sometimes inability to graduate for past due accounts. We have already seen the blessings this project has been to the few young people we were able to help to remain in school and complete their educational goals. We have also initiated a project we sponsor called “The India Project”. Since 2003 we have been sponsoring Ministers in India to hold evangelistic meetings bringing the message to hundreds of people at a time. We have sponsored over 30 ministers so far and they have won over 3,000 souls for the kingdom, resulting in over 30 new church groups through the financial assistance we offered. We look forward to continue these projects indefinitely.
The Group looks forward to more ways through which they can continue to reflect the “Mere Image” of Christ as they share their faith through their songs, the spoken word, and the lives they live from day to day. Your prayers and support for the Group’s Ministry will be greatly appreciated.

At our birth, in our beginning, our original Genesis, we were all born into sin. But when a sinner meets Christ, gets to know Him, and partakes in a spiritual baptism they are washed in His blood, covered by His grace, and their life is renewed. They are a new creation. This is the moment of a new beginning, a rebirth, and thus a second Genesis.
Since 2004, II Genesis has been blessed with the opportunity to sing for several churches and special events, but we mainly sing at our home church Whittier S.D.A. Church. As all of us are a part of other music groups within the church (choirs, praise teams, etc.) we are kept busy with what we love to do -- share the love of Christ through song. Much of the music we sing was either written by Henry G. Murray, Jr. or performed by other Christian artists such as Acappella, Go Fish, Rescue, The Master’s Plan, Gaither Vocal Band, and others. But whenever, wherever, and whatever we choose to sing, it is always for the purpose of praising and glorifying the God who loves us, died for us, and is coming back for us.
II Genesis (pronounced: sek-uhnd jen-uh-sis) is Emily Eugenio, Wilfred Tambaoan, Jenna Eugenio, Herman Eugenio, Hillorie Tambaoan, and Henry G. Murray, Jr.
