President, WMA- Bishop David Oyedepo
Our Core Mandate speaks of liberation in all facets of human existence. We focus mainly on transforming destinies that have been afflicted, battered, beaten, tattered, deformed and subsequently in groaning and agonies, as a result of pains, pangs and crying.
This is the mandate…“The hour has come to Liberate the World from all oppression of the devil through the Preaching of the Word of Faith, and I am sending you to undertake this task.”
Today, testimonies of liberation through our messages, books, tapes, magazines and other periodicals are most humbling. The Word of Faith is working like fire for the Liberation of Mankind across the nations.
On November of 1982, the Lord spoke to the Presiding Bishop clearly from Luke 1:1-3 that “this mandate shall have a church base all that is in existence notwithstanding”.
Today, the Living Faith Church, well known in some cities and nations as Winners’ Chapel, has become a worldwide name.
This word of the Lord gave birth to the Liberation Mission to the World (MTW).
In one of those days of waiting on the Lord in May 1983, the Lord spoke in clear terms to The Founder saying, “I will through this ministry raise the foundation of many other ministries.” The ministry would be involved in the training and development of men and women for spiritual leadership in all areas of human endeavours, pulpit ministry inclusive.
The curriculum for the school began towards the end of 1985, and evening classes began on September 1, 1986.
Supernaturally, a week to the time of resumption of the students a property was gotten free at 30, Katsina Road, Kaduna, for the commencement.
On the 14th February 1983, God spoke to The Founder in very clear terms “The Word I put into your mouth, the same commit into writing and I will cause the same unction upon the spoken Word to rest upon the written Word, bringing about the same effect.” whilst in a study going through a piece in a magazine, titled “The New Wine”
The publishing arm of WMA, known as Dominion Publishing House (DPH) was officially commissioned on December 5 1992 and won the 1996 ECOWAS Gold Award, has at today, rolled out copies of Christian books in millions which are mostly sold at subsidised rates and at other times distributed free particularly on the foreign missions. The first two books, "The Law of Faith" and the "Miracle Seed" were published in 1985.
Today, DPH has a fully staffed and equipped French Department that translate and publishes in French while also printing copies of the Bible in-house in large quantities.
