The Worship Without Walls concert is an initiative of The Cyber Embassy of Christ, an online church with Netvangelism, e-Ministry, e-fellowship and e-discipleship.
Founder of The Cyber Embassy of Christ, Ope Banwo, described the highly-anticipated online concert as a challenge to the devil.
He said in an interview that although the coronavirus pandemic has forced churches to close, it cannot take praise and worship from the children of God.
“The pandemic may have temporarily shut down our places of worship offline, but it cannot take praise and worship from our mouths. So, this ‘Worship Without Walls’ event is more like declaring to the devil that nothing can take the praise from believers who are resolved to worship their God,” Banwo said.
Explaining the motivation behind the concert, he said: “The next battleground for souls is on the internet not in church buildings. Churches across the world are experiencing a decline in attendance while the internet is exploding with people on Sunday mornings.
“It was a no-brainer that instead of whining about people who would rather be browsing online than coming to church, we should be thinking of taking the church to them where they are. It is time to take the whole church online even as we continue to operate physical churches.”
