Victory Chapel is a Bible based, Spirit filled, non-denominational church with a contemporary Pentacostal style of worship. Here, Jesus is real and is still changing lives today!
The question we would like to address as we introduce ourselves to you is, "What makes Victory Chapel different?" What makes us different from the average church?
Actually, we are different in many ways and we would like to point out some differences that cause Victory Chapel to stand out:
Our Vision is clear and progressive
CLEAR - our vision is visible and measurable. We intend by all means to impact the unsaved community through outreach and evangelism.
PROGRESSIVE - we uphold a "whatever it takes to get it done mentality". We constantly look for more effective ways to fulfill our purpose and see our vision become a reality. Our vision is big because we have a big God who has given us a big command and a big commission to go into all the world.
What we Believe
THE SCRIPTURE INSPIRED: The Bible is the inspired Word of God to men; the infallible rule of faith and conduct, and is superior to conscience and reason, but not contrary to reason. (II Timothy 3: 15,16; I Corinthians 2: 13; I Peter 2: 2).
THE ONE TRUE GOD: The One true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent, self-revealed "I AM"; and has further revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association, i.e., as Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. (Deuteronomy 6: 4; Mark 12: 29; Isaiah 43: 10,11: Matthew 28: 19; Galatians 3: 20).
MAN, HIS FALL AND REDEMPTION: The creation, test and fall of man, as recorded in Genesis; his total depravity and inability to attain to Divine righteousness. Man's only hope is Jesus Christ, the Son of God.(Genesis 1: 26-31; 3: 1-7; Romans 5: 12-21).
JESUS CHRIST, THE ONLY SAVIOUR OF MAN: The Savior of men, the Lord Jesus Christ, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin, Mary, very God and very man. (Luke 1: 30-35; John 1: 18; Isaiah (9: 6).
THE SALVATION OF MAN: The grace of God, which brings salvation, hath appeared to all men, through the preaching of repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ; man is saved by the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Ghost, and, being justified by grace through faith he becomes an heir of God according to the hope of eternal life.(Titus 2: 11; Romans 10: 8-10 13-15; Luke 24: 47; Titus 3: 5-7). The salvation of sinners by grace alone, through faith in the perfect and sufficient work of the Cross of Calvary, by which we secure remission of sins and eternal life. (Ephesians 2: 8-9; Hebrews 9-12,22; Romans 5: 1). The Gospel of the grace of God, how that Christ died for our sins, was buried, and rose again the third day for our justification. (I Corinthians 15: 1-4; Romans 4: 25).
BAPTISM IN WATER: The water baptism of believers by immersion in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost according to Scripture. (Matthew 28: 19; Acts 8: 37-38; 10: 47-48; 19: 5; Romans 6: 4).
BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT: The baptism of the Holy Spirit as an experience subsequent to salvation, with the scriptural evidence, namely, speaking "with other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance"). (Luke 24: 49; Acts 1: 8; 2: 1-4; 38-39; 8: 13-17; 10: 44-47; 11: 15-17; 19: 1-7).
THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT: The gifts of the Spirit as enumerated and practiced as manifest in the early church. (I Corinthians 12-14; Acts 5:12-16).
LIVING THE CHRISTIAN LIFE: The Spirit-filled life, a life of separation from the world, and the perfecting of holiness in the fear of God as an expression of Christian faith. (Ephesians 5: 18; II Corinthians 6: 14 - 7: 1).
THE CHURCH: Christ is building His Church, the called out ones that gather in His name and a spiritual work takes place. The Church is the Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of her great commission to go into all the world and make disciples of every nation. Each believer, born of the Spirit, is an integral part of the General Assembly and the Church of the first born, which are written in heaven. (Matthew 16: 18; 28: 19; Ephesians 1: 22-23; 2: 22; Heb. 12: 23).
THE MINISTRY OF THE CHURCH: A divinely-called and scripturally ordained ministry has been provided by our Lord for a two-fold purpose: (1) The evangelization of the world, and (2) The direction for the edifying of the Body of Christ. (Matt 28: 19; Mark 16: 15-20; Matt 24: 14; Eph 4: 11-16). Section 12.
DIVINE HEALING: The healing of the body by divine power or divine healing in its many aspects as practiced by the early church. This was provided for in the atonement of Christ, and is the privilege of all believers. (Isa. 53: 5; Matt. 8: 16-17; Acts 3: 1-22; 4: 30; James 5: 14-15).
THE LORD'S SUPPER: The Lord's memorial, commonly called Supper, for believers. (I Cor. 11: 23-32). Section 14. THE SECOND COMING OR BLESSED HOPE: The bodily ascension of Jesus to heaven, His enthronement, His personal coming for His church (those who have fallen asleep in Christ and their translation together with those who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord which is the blessed hope of the church), then there will bethe general resurrection and the final judgement. (Luke 24: 15; Eph. 1: 20; Acts. 7: 54-58; Heb. 1: 3; I Thess. 4: 13-18; Romans 8: 23; Titus 2: 13; I Cor. 15: 51-58; Rev. 11: 15).
THE MILLENNIAL REIGN OF JESUS: The revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ from heaven, the salvation of national Israel, and the millennial reign of Christ on the earth is the scriptural promise and the world's hope.(II .Thess. 1: 7; Rev. 19: 11-14; 20: 1-7; Romans 11: 26-27).
THE REALITY AND PERSONALITY OF SATAN: Satan has many names in Scripture and is real with a personality. (Job 1: 6 - 3: 1; II Corinthians 11: 14).
DESTINY OF EVERY PERSON: The eternal life of the believer (John 5: 42; 10: 28), and the eternal punishment of the unbeliever.(Mark 9: 43-48; II Thessalonians 1: 9; Rev. 20: 10-15).
THE NEW HEAVENS AND THE NEW EARTH: We, "according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness).(II Peter 3: 13).
THE SOVEREIGN AUTONOMOUS GOVERNMENT OF THE LOCAL CHURCH: We believe in the indigenous church, which has within itself all it needs to fulfill the commission of the Church. That is the raising up, ordaining, and releasing of workers for the harvest field, and the taking care of any problems arising within the Body.(Matt. 18: 17; Acts 6: 1-8; 15: 22; 1 Cor. 16: 12).
While fully appreciating that no doctrine of Scripture should be supported by anything less than all the Scripture has to say concerning that doctrine, we, nevertheless, feel that it is of no value to append each of the previous statements with two or more of the main Scriptures supporting them.
Victory Chapel exists as a local congregation to witness to the world of God's love as revealed in His Son, Jesus Christ, our crucified, risen, exalted, and soon-returning King. We seek to teach the Word of God and spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit. Our goal is the shaping and equipping of our church family so that disciples will be nourished and empowered to fulfill their God-ordained purpose and ministry. As members of the church, our desire is to bring glory to God through our public and private lives. We do this:
rejoicing in Christ Jesus;
increasing in the knowledge of God through the study and application of the scriptures;
by growing in godly character;
by practicing Biblical fellowship;
by serving one another with our spiritual gifts, time, and money;
by proclaiming the Gospel in Athens and to the ends of the earth.
Our mission is accomplished by keeping focused on five core values.
Worship: Man's chief end is to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever. Psalm 29:2 says, "Give unto the Lord the glory due unto His name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness." Central to the life of the congregation is the vibrant, heartfelt, and exuberant worship of Jesus Christ as Lord.
Fellowship: Acts 2:42 says, "They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship." The life of the early church revolved around the faithful ministry of teaching and preaching God's Word and the bond of committed relationships that believers have with one another. Galatians 6:10 reiterates, "Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith." In order for worship to complete us, the church must be a fellowship of believers.
Evangelism: Mark 16:15 says, "And He said to them, 'Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature...'" The great commission has never been rescinded. Keeping the Gospel "outside the four walls" is one of the defining ethics and emphasis of our ministry.
Discipleship: Matthew 28:19-20, "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations...teaching them to observe all things I have commanded you..." Discipleship is a responsibility we take seriously. It is also a process where we challenge believers to mature and grow as followers of Christ seeking to do His will.
Devotion: Devotion refers to our commitment to God's will, God's ways, and God's Word. We believe in a serious-minded approach to communion with God. Finding the balance between legalism and license is the fruit of an intimate relationship with God.
