Our Beliefs
Every week at Victory you can expect to learn from the word and find application in everyday life. The beliefs listed below never change, we live them, defend them, and proclaim them.

We believe that the Bible was written by divinely inspired men under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is infallible, inerrant, and the final authority for Christian beliefs and living.
Deut 4:1-2 • Psalm 19:7-10 • 2 Tim 3:15-17 • Heb 1:1-2

We believe there is one true and living God, who is Creator, Redeemer, and is the Sovereign Ruler over all things, working all things according to the counsel of His will, for His own glory, and the benefit of His children. He is one God who is three persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit – with distinct personal attributes, yet without division in nature, essence, or being.
Ex 15:11 • Psalm 83:18 • Jer 10:10 • Matt 10:37 • Mark 12:30 • John 1:1-18, 4:24, 14:16-26 • Acts 2:22-24, 5:3-4 • Rom 1:20 • 2 Cor 13:14 • Heb 1:1-3 • 1 Pet 1:15-16 • Rev 4:6-8, 11 

We believe mankind was created in holiness and in the image of God—male and female— but by voluntary transgression fell from that holy and happy state out of a right relationship with the Creator and into a nature and experience dictated by sin. As a consequence, sinful man stands opposed to God and, apart from God’s gracious, unmerited mercy, faces the eternal and just wrath of the Almighty.
Gen 1:27-31 • Psalm 32:1-5 • Acts 17:26-31 • Rom 3:10-23, 5:12-19 • Eph 2:1-22

We believe that salvation is freely given to all who believe in the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and respond through repentance and faith. Repentance is a genuine turning from sin toward God. Faith is believing in the love and grace of Jesus and placing your life, hopes, and dreams in Him. For individual believers, it begins with regeneration, in which God imparts new life to a spiritually dead person. God justifies believers through the sinless life, atoning death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. In the cross God inflicted the just condemnation of the sinner upon Jesus, and therefore, through the sinner’s belief, He imputes the perfect righteousness and eternal reward of Jesus to the believer. Thus, He brings the believer into a relationship of peace and favor with Himself. Salvation continues through progressive sanctification, in which God enables the believer to grow in moral and spiritual maturity by the work of the indwelling Holy Spirit. The final glorious result of salvation is that the believer will share eternal life with God in a renewed creation, the new heavens and new earth. The Holy Spirit guarantees one’s eternal salvation, which cannot be lost despite the believer’s circumstances, decisions, or actions because of the eternal covenant of God with His children.
Gen 3:15 • Exodus 3:14-17 • Matt 16:21-26 • Luke 1:68-69 • John 5:40 • Acts 2:36-37 • Eph 1:7, 2:8-22, 4:11-16 • Phil 2:12-13; Col 1:9-22 • Titus 2:11-14 • Heb 2:1-3, 9:24-28

We believe that followers of Jesus are called to join together in a local covenanted body of baptized believers, gathering under the pure preaching of God’s word, observing the two ordinances of Christ as taught in Scripture, submitting to the authority of God’s Word and to the accountability of fellow believers, and working to carry out the mission of Christ. Its scriptural officers are pastors/elders/ bishops and deacons as qualified by Scripture.
Matt 16:15-19 • Acts 2:41-47, 5:11-14 • 1 Tim 2:9-14, 3:1-15

We believe that Christian Baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It serves as a testimony of faith in Christ for salvation and a symbol of the believer’s fellowship with Christ in His death and resurrection, in which one’s old nature is put off in light of the new nature one has received through Christ. The Lord’s Supper is a memorial act that serves as an encouraging reminder of Christ’s work on the believer’s behalf. It shall be observed with bread that represents the body of Christ, and with wine that represents His blood; broken and shed for the atonement for the believer. It should be observed until He returns.
Matt 3:13-17, 26:26-30 • Acts 16:30-33 • Rom 6:3-5 • Col 2:12
