What We Believe

At Victory & Praise, we preach the message of the cross, emphasizing:

  • The Bible is the inspired word of God: (Ps. 119, Mat. 4:4, Lk. 24:27)
  • There is only one God, eternally existent in three persons: (1 Jn. 5:7)
  • In the Deity, Virgin Birth, sinless life, miracles, atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His return to reign for a thousand years: (Jn. 1:1-4, Eph. 2:13-18, Rev. Chpts. 19-20)
  • In the blessed hope—the rapture of the church at Christ coming: (1 Thess. 4:13-18)
  • The blood of Jesus is the only way of salvation; through repentance and faith in Christ's work on the Cross: (Rom. 5:1, Eph. 2:8-9, 13-18)
  • Regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal Salvation: (Jn. 3:5-8; Titus 3:5)
  • The redemptive work of Christ on the Cross provides Healing of the human body in answer to believing prayer: (Ex. 15:25-26; James 5:14-15; 1 Pet. 2:24)
  • The Baptism with the Holy Spirit according to Acts 2:4 is given to believers who ask for it. (Acts 2:4; 10:44-46; 19:1-7)
  • In the sanctifying Power of the Holy Spirit (Rom. 6:3-14; 8:1-2, 11)
  • In the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: The one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting damnation; (Rev. 20:5-6; 11-15)
