CHURCH OF THE WEEK
The establishment of the Livingspring Chapel International Church
was a reality of the vision given to the man of God, Pastor Femi
Emmanuel. The Church came into being from the vision conceived by the
Founder. The initial vision of the Founder was to have what was known then as
“Word preachers Ministry”, which was purely for soul winning only. However, it came to a point that the arm of this ministry as it was
called at the beginning realized that the souls won could not be sustained
and retained except they had a regular source of spiritual food, thereby necessitating the establishment of the Church.
The name of the Livingsprings Chapel International was founded on
Isaiah 41:17-18 and Psalm
107:35: The Church was officially inaugurated on Saturday, 18th December,
1993 with a handful of people, and began in the parliament building,
Government Secretariat, Ibadan, Oyo state. The Church took off with two major programmes (Sunday Service and
Tuesday Bible Study). These two services were held to because of the
restriction imposed in the usage of the venue, which was Government
House. The Church used the place for the first three years with hundreds of worshippers. However, on the restoration of Military rule in 1993, the Church was
petitioned by the then Military Administrator of Oyo state as to why the
Government office was converted into a religious house. This resulted to relocation of the Church to Sango where they paid 4 million Naira per annum on rent. The Church witnessed an explosion at Sango adding many more programmes to their previous activities, such as ‘Prayer mountain’ which came up every Monday morning
between 6am and 7am, and Taku-ti-Jesu which literally means “hold on
The explosion at Sango resulted in the opening of many branches of
the church at home and abroad. The church has the following as her regional
headquarters nationwide: Northern Region Headquarters at Abuja,
Southern Region Headquarters at Uyo, Western Region Headquarters at Abeokuta and Eastern Region Headquarters at Port-harcout. All these
regions are pastored with some assemblies under each region.
Currently the Church National headquarters (Dominion City) is a 10,000-capacity auditorium seated on about 41 acres of land located Aduloju bus-stop, Iwo road, Ojoo expressway Ibadan, Oyo State. Dominion City was formally dedicated on 1st, December 2013 at the 20
year anniversary of the ministry. It is regarded as Covenant home of
Livingspringers and National Headquarters of the ministry while Lagos
assembly is considered to be its international headquarters.
Vision of the Church
The vision of the church reads “we have a mandate to lift up men and
women from their low estates, to the top where God wants them to be”.
The scriptural foundations of the vision statement were taken from Job
22:29, and Deut. 33:27. This corroborates the reason why Dominion Cathedral is tagged to be a lifting house. It also conforms with the annual
world lifting conference of all Livingspringers. It usually comes up at
every last weekend of November.
To reach out to the unsaved. Through strategic and aggressive
evangelism, the church seeks to spread the good news as contained in
John 3:16 and as commanded in Matthew 28:13 in order to bring in lost
Service times at the headquarters include;
Sundays: 7:30am, 9:30am and 11:30am
