ABOUT THE CATHEDRAL OF PRAISE
"The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the Lord of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the Lord of hosts."
The Cathedral of Praise (COP) is a church founded in Manila, Philippines, during the 1950s by Dr. Lester Sumrall. Standing as a living testament to God’s abounding grace and faithfulness, COP has grown tremendously over the years – with every gospel crusade, every church planted, every ministry group created – every soul reached in the Philippines and beyond. Now with five satellite churches and ten branches spread across the Philippines and abroad – in Hawaii, Dubai, and Abu Dhabi, COP as a church looks forward to the future with a commission to build 200 churches in 20 years, all across the Philippines and around the world. Praise God!
