Dr. Chris Okafor founded the church (Mountain Of Liberation And Miracle Ministries (a.k.a Liberation City) in November 2003 in his then one bedroom apartment, before he later moved to Prismoni Primary School, Ojodu, where full church services commenced. First, the church occupied a classroom, then a school hall. Worshippers that were trooping in soon became so many that the hall could no longer contain them, then the need for a bigger space arose and consequently, the church sought for a refuge at a spacious warehouse on No 9, Bashiru Street, Ojodu, Ikeja – Lagos..
Within a year, the crowd grew and the church resorted to mounting canopies and chairs outside, thinking this would solve the problem but rather, it became more a problem as the size of the overflow soon necessitated blocking of the street every Sunday. Then, there used to be about ten erected canopies outside and suddenly the overflow became more than the main auditorium.
