Living Faith Church Worldwide (a.k.a. Winners Chapel International) came into existence as a result of the mandate God gave to His servant, Bishop David Oyedepo:
"...Now, the hour has come to liberate the world from all oppressions of the devil through the preaching of the world of faith; and I am sending you to undertake this task"(May 1 - 2, 1981)
Over the years, there has been countless proofs of testimonies of liberation of men, women and children from various captivities, giving credence to the mandate.
The church is a faith-based ministry with focus on the word of God. The headquarters is in Canaanland, Ota, Nigeria where the renowned 50,000 seat Faith Tabernacle is located. Bishop David Oyedepo who is the founder (& presiding Bishop) of Living Faith Church Worldwide, is the pastor of the Faith Tabernacle which currently holds five services every Sunday.
