About Us

Winners Chapel International Austin is a branch of the Living Faith Church Worldwide also known as Winners Chapel International where Dr. David Oyedepo is the Presiding Bishop. Winners Chapel Int'l Austin started as a fellowship in June 2012 where the word of faith was taught & preached with accompanying signs & wonders in the lives of the attendees and has continued to pursue the Liberation Mandate in Austin, Texas.

On May 2, 1981, at the end of a visionary encounter that lasted about eighteen hours, I saw a roll of afflicted, battered, beaten, tattered, deformed and all that one could ever imagine, groaning and agonizing, as a result of pains and pangs, crying as it were for rescue. I was so moved with compassion that I began sobbing profusely asking, Why Lord ? I heard the Lord say to me, But from the beginning it was not so.

I questioned further, But why Lord ? and then came the mandate, 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.

This mandate was further confirmed from the epistle of Paul to the Ephesians where God Said, Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked? (Eph 6:16).

This was the genesis of this global ministry today and according to this mandate, the Word of Faith is the key to triumphant living.

Shortly, thereafter, a weekly teaching programme took-off popularly known as the Faith Liberation Hour. Alongside, a caucus was put in place, tagged The Power House which was involved in prayers and fasting among others towards the actualization of this heavenly vision.

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.

The Foreign Mission Mandate

On May 4, 1994, as The Presiding Bishop was driving from a meeting held in Zaria to Kaduna, that the Lord spoke to him in very clear terms, "The harvest of Africa is now over-ripe, rush in and preserve it from decadence."

On May 8, 1994, with a giant map of Africa, we dedicated the mandate to God for execution and by January 15, 1995 the first set of missionaries left the shores of Nigeria. Today, we are in about 48 African nations and operating in 63 cities and towns in those nations. It's clear again that whatever God speaks with His mouth, He performs with His Hand (I Kings 8:15).

The foreign mission mandate gave birth to two organizations. One was the African Invasion Program (AGIP) and the World Mission Agency (WMA).

It wouldn't be until the year 2000 that God gave the Commission the prompting to expand beyond the shores of Africa. As it is apparent, the mission to spread this commission and it's churches around the world came directly from God and that is why we have been experiencing God's backing in a strange way.
