Household of David Church razed by fire, gathers reactions

A popular church in Lagos Household of David Church has been razed by fire. The damage to the church, which is situated at Adeniji Jones in Ikeja, was severe, and it was just a few hours to its annual conference on Wednesday.

The building was totally burnt, up to the chairs and other equipment in it. Fire fighters were seen in a video trying to savage the situation, but everything was already razed down.

According to the Lagos State Fire and Rescue Services, said the fire emanated from the ceiling of the church and later spread into the auditorium.

The annual conference of the church, tagged Mercy Conference, was supposed to commence today, and it had already done publicity for the programme. Some of the preachers expected at the conference are Isaac Oyedepo, Yemi Davids, Joshua Selman, Godman Akinlabi, Nathaniel Bassey, Victoria Orenze, among others.

Confirming the incident, the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), wrote on X that the fire went unnoticed by church workers but was brought to their attention by passersby.

It added, “Thankfully, no injuries or casualties were reported. The church, leased and insured, had organised a 5-day crusade starting this evening and ending on February 4, 2024.”

The head pastor of the church, Sola Osunmakin, reacted to the sad incident in a calm disposition saying: “When the fire started at the roof of the church, we called the fire service but they didn’t arrive until an hour after.”

He added that the Mercy Conference would still hold. Several people have reacted to the fire incident.

@TosinofJesus said: “So, someone had a dream about Household of David burning. Truly, ‘known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world.’ Nothing catches God unawares. Nahh. I actually really feel for them. This is so painful. Truly, before the resurrection comes death. Please support the Household of David Church as much as you can. Nothing is stopping this move of God.”

@The Wings of Grace: “If the devil had known he wouldn’t have. Watch the Household of David.”

@TheAdesola_: “Someone was surprised the mercy conference is still going to hold, yes it has to. That’s how the devil knows he didn’t win. Victory is ours through and through in Christ Jesus. Just give thanks on behalf of the Household of David. God is faithful.”
