Church members and leaders rejoice over the new church after waiting 13years with contributions both spiritual and monetary contributions.

Punchng reports that the opening ceremony was attended by the congregation including high rank officials and political leaders.

The church was said to have been constructed with a 30,000 four-level amphitheatre capacity which comes with a central air-conditioning units, chiller farm and air-handing units. The new building was inaugurated on Tuesday, April 23, 2018.

The toilet facilities in the building is connected to a Central Sewage System while there are standby generators and panel rooms, 7.5 MVA dedicated public power, and 2.5 MVA transformers.

There is also a multi-purpose hall, water treatment plant, modern sewage treatment plant, two industrial boreholes and firefighting equipment whiel the main building has fire hydrant and hose reels, office facilities on five floors, six and 12-passenger elevators, among others. The church was completed 13 years after its construction began.

During the inauguration ceremony the General Overseer of the Church Pastor Kumuyi made it clear that the congregation needs comfort in the presence of God.

"About 13 years ago, we knew that we were taking a leap of faith, but we trusted the lord that he would not only provide all we needed, but also direct the project to a successful conclusion. And today, we have even surpassed our expectation.

“We embarked on the additional projects because we are convinced that the task of developing and modernising of our society cannot be left to the government alone. Individuals, non-governmental organisations and even corporate organisations, including religious groups, should be involved, as much as they can, in the spiritual, as well as physical uplift of our state and country. 

The general overseer of Deeper Life, William Kumiyi, said the church was built to ensure worshippers are comfortable in the presence of God.

“Religious organisations must go beyond this approach. We must intensify the task of preaching and spreading the word all over our nation; we must tirelessly pursue the goal of changing lives for Jesus Christ.
"We must make our places of worship the gates of heaven on earth, where those thirsty for God and those who are seeking a deeper experience in life can find solace, be reconciled to God and be assured of a place in heaven when life on earth comes to an end," Kumiyi added. 

The renowned preacher said Nigeria is in a point where it demands divine intervention.

He added that a programme in the church was aimed at helping visitors discover themselves and work towards discovering themselves and realizing that man could not prevail by strength.
