About Us

Winners Chapel International Pretoria was established in September 2008 as a branch of the World Mission Agency, South Africa. The church is located in the west of Pretoria and in a short time, is recording outstanding attendance in all its services.

What is unique about this church?

Every man’s problem has a solution in God’s hands here in this church:

  • Solution provoking messages are preached in every service
  • The testimonies we share at every service are an evidence that God is turning obstacles to miracles.
  • Signs and wonders, healing from terminal diseases, fruitfulness are the order of the day in this family. Many have received healing, secured miracle jobs, financial breakthroughs, and turnarounds in their businesses here. We see God doing the same for you. Of a truth, signs and wonders have become the trademark of the winners’ family.

Having become a member of this family, expect Him to do the same in your own life. Winners Chapel International Pretoria is more of a training school where every member is equipped to handle life’s challenges effectively on their own. We have had testimonies of transformed lives and diverse miracles of all kinds.


On May 2, 1981, at the end of a visionary encounter that lasted about eighteen hours, Bishop David Oyedepo 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. He was so moved with compassion that he began sobbing profusely asking,

"Why Lord?" I heard the Lord say to me, “But from the beginning it was not so".

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


God commissioned me with a Word of Faith ministry to my generation. Remember Paul said, "...if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle?" (1 Cor 14:8) By the help of the Holy Ghost I have classified the Word of Faith He has committed into my hands into the specific areas of emphasis, in direct response to Isaiah 40:6, "The voice said, Cry. And he said, What shall I cry?" I have named these 12 areas of emphasis as the 12 Pillars of our Commission. We have stood firm upon these twelve stones and they have resulted in breakthroughs - both for the ministry and all that are partakers of the same grace with us. We have crossed Jordan into power, bearing the ark of liberation and have experienced amazing testimonies ever since this commission was handed down in May, 1981.

Here are the 12 stones, after the order of Joshua 4:1-8, 20-24.
