3. Living Faith Church Worldwide
Living Faith Church Worldwide (also known as Winners Chapel) is a megachurch and a Christian denomination founded by Bishop David Oyedepo in 1981. The organization has since become a global network of churches with congregations in 49 countries.
The beginnings of the church can be traced back to May 1981 when Oyedepo claims to have had an 18-hour vision from God. In this vision, God spoke to him saying, “Now the hour has come to liberate the world from all oppressions of the devil, through the preaching of the Word of faith; and I am sending you to undertake this task”. Two years later the church was formed with four members.
