Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, President and founder of LoveWorld Incorporated better known as Christ Embassy, has expressed optimism that the fire incident at the church’s headquarters was an opportunity for bigger and better things.

He made the comment during a live Sunday service at the church’s campground, Asese, Ogun State.

Social media was flooded, Sunday morning, with videos of the church building at Oregun, Ikeja on fire.

He said, “Nothing happens in the life of a child of God by accident. During the 2001 Ikeja cantonment bombing incident, the building vibrated so much and we thought it was going to collapse. I thought to myself that if it collapsed I was going to build a bigger, better one. At the end of the day it didn’t collapse and we called the engineers to see if there was any need to bring it down and rebuild but it was still okay.

“Now that this has happened, we will build a bigger, better, and more glorious one and the devil will lick his wound.”

The men of the Lagos Fire Service were already on ground to rescue the situation at the time of this report and no life was reported lost.
