29th of August, 2021, the Founder of the Living Faith Worldwide Church, Bishop David Oyedepo and his wife, laid the foundation of Faith Academy and Faith Tabernacle, However, 23 years later, Bishop Oyedepo and his wife, Pastor (Mrs) Faith Abiola Oyedepo returned to the same ground, at the demolished Faith Academy Grounds to lay again the foundation for “The Ark” (Legacy Project) as he was divinely directed.
Speaking at the ground breaking service, Bishop Oyedepo said the project was initially declared as “Faith Theatre” until the Lord changed it to “The Ark”, stating that names are very important to God. While Bishop David Abioye was also speaking at the ground breaking service, he said the project tagged “Legacy Project” was received by God in 2016 and God gave the go-ahead to Bishop Oyedepo to start recently, as that answers the questions by many who are curious to know how the ministry gets things done cheaply.
In Bishop Oyedepo’s words; High Palatial Churches, all moving at the same time. The Endtime Church shall be a Church of Global Influence – Micah 4:1. When I saw the Building, it made Faith Tabernacle look like boys quarters. By Heaven’s design, He made Faith Tabernacle an overflow without any premonition. This ground for the Ark Project is broken in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Relocation of Faith Academy cost almost N4 Billion. I named it Faith Theatre, God named THE ARK. Everything matters in our lives including names. Names are important to God.
When this project was declared it was called Faith Theatre. “Stay where you are, my silence does not connote GO AHEAD!”. In 2017, He said, “speak no more to Me on this matter.” I did one thing don’t touch a dime of that fund, we can’t tell when He will speak. We also set aside a certain percentage of our income. Sharp Rebuke: I won’t have gone there with you, it would have been a monument. Clear off Faith Academy Campus It was a simple command! It was 4 Billion. Because it is never late to be right. This is a Tabernacle of rescue after the order of Noah, to preserve the generation of believers A NEW NAME WHICH THE LORD SHALL NAME – Isaiah 62:2”
“I named Faith Theatre, He named THE ARK. Psalm 78: 68-69. We are in the era of High Palaces. We Used to be called Mushroom Churches and Specialised in Building Batchers and Renting Houses. Now we are building cities. Churches shall become cities like walls. Every God sent Apostle is ordained to be City Builders not Estate Developers”. At the event were, Bishops David Abioye, Thomas Aremu, Pastor David Ibiyeomie, Pastor (Dr) Paul Enenche among other pastors. SEE PHOTOS BELOW;
