Founded in 1954

Founded in 1954, formerly Manila Bethel Temple, The Cathedral of Praise is a Christian church founded in 1954 by Ptr. Lester Sumrall. Currently undershepherded by Pastors David and Beverley Sumrall, COP operates a Main Campus along Taft Avenue, Manila, an East Campus in Pioneer Centre, Pasig, a South Campus at Versailles, Las Piñas and a North Campus along Commonwealth Ave., Quezon City.

Daily Manna

COP has always been about teaching and living the Word of God. This has led to the establishment of numerous ministries that work hand-in-hand for a sole purpose of winning every person for Jesus. One of which is the DAILY MANNA Foundation – a feeding program that provides meals to at least 2,000 kids and their families, in the poorest parts of Manila every single day, rain or shine.

200 Churches

With a vision to “Build 200 churches in the next 20 years”, COP is well on its way to doing just that. To date, churches in Bataan, Batangas, Laoag, Cebu, Davao & Hawaii have already been planted. Lipa, Olongapo, and Singapore will soon have their own branches too.

Bible Radio

Another notable milestone happened last January 29, 2017, when the congregation formally launched its very own radio station – DZBR 531 BIBLE RADIO (listen live via www.bible.radio) Bible Radio is a non-profit AM Radio Station that aims to cover the Nation and the World with the Gospel through programs about Jesus and His Word – made with love by the committed volunteers of the Cathedral of Praise Manila.
