“Noisemakers Don’t Last Only Newsmakers Do” – Bishop Oyedepo

Bishop David Oyedepo at CHoP *“He is stupid, he is mad” – they are all mere opinions, they don’t carry any weight. *I’ve kept going since 1976, some noisemakers are making noise in 2020.

Jesus told me that when He came to the world, someone had to tell someone else, ‘come and see’. Only a church on the go grow; a church without a people on the go never grows (Luke 14:23). In the growth of the Church lies the glory of the participating...
