A Letter From Our Pastor

 
Welcome.  
 
Are you looking for a place to belong?
 
My wife, Nanette, and I would like to invite you to check out Victory Christian Church.
 
We are a Bible based church where you will get spiritually fed.  This is a great place to meet new friends, find needed encouragement and discover God’s plan for you.
 
If you want to know how you and your family can get involved or if there is anything that we can pray with you about, call us, or better yet, come see us this weekend.
 
Nanette and I hope that you will come see us soon — we are excited to meet you.
 
Welcome Home!
                                                                                           
– Paul Brown, Lead Pastor
 
                                                                       

VISION STATEMENT

To develop spiritual growth, community outreach, discipleship, a heart for reaching the lost, and spreading God’s uncompromising Word.

MISSION STATEMENT

“Upon the rock of the Lord Jesus, we will build our church”  –  Matthew 16:18

THE PROCESS

It is our goal to reach people of all backgrounds through community outreach. 
In doing so, Victory’s goals are to:
Reach the lost.
Teach an enriched Word.
Provide a solid foundation of Christian principals.
Teach and encourage prayer.
Equip great leaders.
Embrace diversity.

WHAT WE BELIEVE

We believe the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible authoritative Word of God.

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death through His shed blood, and His bodily Resurrection, and His personal return in power and glory.

We believe that, for salvation for lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.

We believe it is important, upon confession of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, to be water baptized.

We believe that the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is evidenced by manifestation of spiritual gifts and power in public testimony and service.

We believe that deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement, and is the privilege of all believers.

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the unsaved; those that are saved unto the resurrection of life; and those that are unsaved unto the resurrection of damnation.

We believe in the imminent return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

CORE VALUES

We believe that church is a place where all families and single individuals from all ethnic backgrounds can congregate together to receive the uncompromising Word of God taught in a relevant way; yet, still sensitive to the lost that are drawn or invited to our church.
 
We believe our church should be passionate, relational, and edifying. 
 
We believe our ministry should communicate our love and concern for others both inside and outside the church.
 
We believe in prayer.  As believers, it is our responsibility to pray without ceasing.
 
We believe the church is called to meet the needs of hurting people. The church and the world around us are filled with people who need to be restored, reconciled, and healed. It is the church’s responsibility not to turn them away, but to reach out in a spirit of love to offer help.
 
We believe in equipping our leaders, youth and children through the foundation of biblical principals, encouraging relationship building with God and one another.
 
We believe in relationship building through community groups which allow members to sustain relationships with one another, discuss the Word of God, and address any questions or concerns regarding God’s uncompromising Word.
 
We believe God’s design for a successful church requires the involvement of every person through evangelism, outreach and discipleship.
