What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Statement of Faith

The following are the core beliefs of Victory Church based on the foundational truths taught in the Bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.


The Holy Bible is the inspired Word of God and the revealed will of God. It alone is the final authority in determining all doctrinal truths. It was written by men from various occupations ranging from kings to peasants, inspired by the Holy Spirit, over the course of hundreds of years. All its pages are divinely inspired and harmonious.  The scriptures contain God's revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction, correction and reproof. (2Tim. 3:15-17; 1Pet. 1:23-25; Heb. 4:12; Rom. 16:25-26)


There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These three are coequal and co-eternal (I John 5:7; Genesis 1:26; Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19; Luke 1:35; Isaiah 9:6; Hebrews 3:7-11).


Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the second person of the Trinity. He was 100% God and 100% man.   He was obedient unto death on the cross, where He chose to be our substitute and make provision to redeem humanity from sin. He was raised from the dead with a glorified body and appeared to His disciples. He ascended in to heaven and is now at the right hand of God where He is the One Mediator, reconciling between God and man. He will return in power and glory to judge the world and to consummate His redemptive mission. He now dwells in all believers as the living and ever present Lord. (Isaiah 9:6; Mark 1:1: 9:11; John 1:1-18,29; 10:30,38; 11:25-27; 17:1-5, Romans 1:3-4; Galatians 4:4-5; Hebrews 1:1-3; 4:14-15; Revelation 5:9-14;)


Jesus was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He is God manifest in the flesh.  He fulfilled prophesies that foretold his coming, his life, his death and resurrection.  He is the only man to lead a sinless life. (Matt. 1:18, 25; Luke 1:35; Isaiah 7:14; Luke 1:27-35). 


The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God, fully divine. He is the Comforter and Counselor. He inspired men of old to write the Scriptures. He exalts Christ. He convicts men of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment. He calls men to the Savior, and effects regeneration. His presence in the Christian is the guarantee that God will bring the believer into the fullness of the stature of Christ. (Matt. 28:19; Luke4:1, 11:13,  John 4:24; 15:26; 16:7-14; 1Cor. 2:10-14; 3:16; Eph. 1:13-14; 4:30; 2Tim. 1:14;)

  •  Baptism of the Holy Spirit.  All believers are entitled to and should earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the baptism of the Holy Spirit, according to the command of Jesus Christ. With this comes the endowment of power for life and service. (Luke 24:49; John 14:16, 26; Acts 1:4-8, 2:4, 38-39, 10:44-46, 11:14-16, 15:7-9; 19:2-6; Rom. 8:26-27; Eph. 5:18-20)

  • Gifts of the Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit is manifested through a variety of spiritual gifts to build and sanctify the church, demonstrate the validity of the resurrection and confirm the power of the Gospel. Gifts empower the believer and the church in worship, evangelism and service. (Rom. 12:6; 1Cor. 12:1-31; 1 Pet. 4:10)


Man is the special creation of God, made in His own image. In the beginning, man was innocent of sin, but by his own free choice, man sinned and brought transgression upon the human race. Our only hope of redemption (to restore man back to God’s original intent) is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God. (Genesis 1:26-31; Romans 5:6,12,)


We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ: His death, burial, and resurrection. Salvation is a gift from God, not a result of our good works or of any human efforts (Ephesians 2:8-9; Galatians 2:16, 3:8; Titus 3:5; Romans 10:9-10; Acts 16:31; Hebrews 9:22).


Repentance is the commitment to turn away from sin in every area of our lives and to follow Christ, which allows us to receive His redemption and to be regenerated by the Holy Spirit. Thus, through repentance we receive forgiveness of sins and appropriate salvation (Acts 2:21, 3:19; I John 1:9).


Sanctification is the ongoing process of yielding to God’s Word and His Spirit in order to complete the development of Christ's character in us. It is through the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God that the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life (I Thessalonians 4:3, 5:23; II Corinthians 3:18, 6:14-18, II Thessalonians 2:1-3, Romans 8:29, 12:1-2, Hebrews 2:11).


The Blood that Jesus Christ shed on the Cross of Calvary was sinless and is 100% sufficient to cleanse mankind of all sin. Jesus allowed Himself to be punished for both our sinfulness and our sins, enabling all those who believe to be free from the penalty of sin, which is death (I John 1:7; Revelation 1:5, 5:9; Colossians 1:20; Romans 3:10-12, 23, 5:9; John 1:29).


Christians are people who have invited the Lord Jesus Christ to come and live inside them by His Holy Spirit. They relinquish the authority of their lives over to him thus making Jesus the Lord of their life as well as Savior. They put their trust in what Jesus accomplished for them when He died, was buried, and rose again from the dead (John 1:12; John 14:17, 23; John 15:4; Romans 8:11; Revelation 3:20).


The church represents the Body of Christ and each member is an integral part.  There is a spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.  The scriptures read to not forsake the assembly of ourselves together.  The goal of the church is to make disciples and to present the saints complete in Christ.  (1Cor. 14:4, 12:26; Eph. 1:22, 2:19-22, 5:23; Col. 1:24; Heb. 12:23)


Water Baptism: Baptism is an outward sign of an inward work.  Following faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the new convert is commanded by the Word of God to be baptized in water in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38; Mark 16:16; Acts 8:12, 36-38; 10:47-48).

The Lord's Supper: It is a symbolic act of obedience whereby all believers are welcome to partake of the bread (representing His body that was broken for us) and the fruit of the vine (representing His blood that was shed).  We do this in remembrance of Him. (Mark 14:22-24; Luke 22:19-20; 1Cor. 11:23-26)

Marriage: Marriage as defined in the Bible is a covenant, a sacred bond, the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime.  It is instituted by and publicly entered into before God. (Gen. 2:24; Matthew 19:4-6; Mark 10:6-12;)


The first portion of income, 10% should be given unto the Lord in the church where you worship.  Offerings above the 10% should be given as one’s heart is led to give.  By trusting the Lord with the first portion of income, which represents your life, scripture promises that he will add His blessings and provision. (Gen. 14:20; Leviticus 27:30-32; Malachi 3:6-12; Luke 6:38)


It is the Father's will for believers to become whole, healthy and successful in all areas of life. But because of the fall, many may not receive the full benefits of God’s will while on Earth. That fact, though, should never prevent all believers from seeking the full benefits of Christ’s provision in order to better serve others.

  • Healing of the sick  Illustrated in the life and ministry of Jesus and included in the commission of Jesus to His disciples.  It is given as a sign, which is to follow believers. It is also a part of Jesus’ work on the Cross and one of the gifts of the Spirit. (Ps.103:2-3; Is. 53:5; Matt. 8:16-17; Mark 16: 17-18; Acts 8:6-7; James 5: 14-16; 1Cor. 12:9; Rom. 11:29).


We have a blessed hope that Jesus is coming to gather his saints. According to His promise, Jesus Christ will return to earth, physically and visibly for the second time to establish His Kingdom.  The dead will be raised and Christ will judge all men in righteousness. The ones who have not accepted the redemptive work of Jesus Christ will be consigned to hell, the place of everlasting punishment. The righteous, in their resurrected and glorified bodies will receive their reward and will dwell forever in Heaven with the Lord. 
(Matthew 16:27;  24:27,30-44; 25:31-46; 26:64; Mark 8:38;  Luke 12:40; Acts 1:11; 17:31; Romans 14:10; 1 Corinthians 4:5; 15:24-28,35-58; 2 Corinthians 5:10; Philippians 3:20-21; Colossians 1:5; 3:4; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18; 5:1ff.; 2 Thessalonians 1:6-10; 2:1-4; 1 Timothy 6:14; 2 Timothy 4:1,8; Titus 2:13; Hebrews 9:27-28; James 5:8; 2 Peter 3:7; 1 John 2:28; 3:2; Jude 14; Revelation 1:7; 18; 3:11; 19:20; 20:10-15.)


Heaven is the eternal dwelling place for all believers in the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Matthew 5:3, 12, 20, 6:20, 19:21, 25:34; John 17:24; II Corinthians 5:1; Hebrews 11:16; I Peter 1:4). 


After living one life on earth, the unbelievers will be judged by God and sent to Hell where they will be eternally tormented with the Devil and the Fallen Angels (Matthew 25:41; Mark 9:43-48; Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 14:9-11, 20:12-15, 21:8).


Missions and evangelism are commanded in the teachings of Christ. The Lord Jesus Christ has commanded the preaching of the gospel to all nations. It is the duty of every child of God to seek to win the lost to Christ by verbal witness undergirded by a Christian lifestyle. (Luke 24:46-53; John 17:15-19; 20:21; Acts 1:8; 10:42-43; Romans 10:13-15; 2 Timothy 4:5; Revelation 22:17.)
