a few words about Victory Life Church
Are you wondering if there is more to life? Do you feel like you are just going through the motions? Have you wanted to go to church, but there was always an excuse? Victory is not church as usual; our life changing message could be the answer you have been looking for!
Contemporary Services - Our goal is to offer the gospel of Christ in a culturally relative atmosphere. We are not church as usual and we hope you will feel at home with us! Our services are comfy casual so feel free to wear whatever makes you comfortable. Most people come in their jeans, but there are some who love to dress up in their Sunday best. You will fit in no matter what you wear. Our weekend services are filled with exciting, modern, and uplifting worship music.
If it is your first time visiting, we ask that our guest fill out a Connection Card and place it in the bucket during the offering, or bring it to our Connection Point.
What We Believe
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and Jesus is the Son of God. He really died and He is alive today! We believe salvation is a gift from God, through faith in Jesus, resulting in eternal life and water baptism is a direct commandment of our Lord.
The Bible is the inspired Word of God, the product of holy men of old who spoke and wrote as the Holy Spirit moved them. The covenant, as recorded in the New Testament, we accept as our infallible guide in matters pertaining to conduct and doctrine (2 Timothy 3:16; 1 Thessalonians 2:13).
Man is a created being, made in the likeness and image of God, but through Adam’s transgression and fall, sin entered the world. The Bible says, “… all have sinned, and come short of the Glory of God,” and “… there is none righteous, no, not one” (Romans 3:23; 3:10). Jesus Christ, the Son of God was manifested to undo the works of the Devil and gave his life and shed his blood to redeem and restore man back to God (Romans 5:14; 1 John 3:8).
A gift of God to man, separate from works and the law, and is made operative by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, producing works acceptable to God (Ephesians 2:8-10).
Eternal Life and the New Birth
Man’s first step toward salvation is Godly sorrow that leads to repentance. The new birth is necessary to all men, and when experienced produces eternal life (2 Corinthians 7:10; 1 John 5:12; John 3:3-5).
Baptism in water is by immersion, is a direct commandment of our Lord, and is for believers only. The ordinance is a symbol of the Christians identification with Christ in his death, burial, and resurrection (Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4; Colossians 2:12; Acts 8: 36-39).
Baptism in the Holy Spirit
The baptism of the Holy Spirit is a gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus to all believers in this dispensation and is received subsequent to the new birth. This experience is accompanied by speaking in other tongues as the Holy Spirit gives utterance (Matthew 3:11; John 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; Acts 2:38-39: Acts 19:1-7; Acts 2:1-4).
1Chronicles 16:9, Sing to Him, sing psalms to Him, and talk of all His wondrous works.
The Bible teaches that without holiness no man can see the Lord. We believe in the doctrine of sanctification as a definite, yet progressive work of grace, commencing at the time of regeneration and continuing until the consummation of salvation at Christ’s return (Hebrews 12:14; 1 Thessalonians 5:23; 2 Peter 3:18; 2 Corinthians 3:18; Philippians 3:12-14; 1 Corinthians 1:30)
Healing for the human body is provided for in the atonement of Christ, and is available for every born again believer. (Mark 16:18; James 5:14-15; 1 Peter 2:24; Matthew 8:17; Isaiah 53:4-5)
Resurrection of the Just and the Return of our Lord
The angels said to Jesus’ disciples, “… this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as you have seen Him go into heaven.” His coming is imminent. When He comes, “… the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air…” (Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4: 16-17)
Following the tribulation he shall return to the earth as King of kings, and Lord of lords, and together with His saints He shall reign for a thousand years (Revelation 5:10; 20:6)
