Sermons on Living Our Faith

Go with the Gospel

What does it look like to “go with the Gospel”? Victory’s mission is to “reach today’s people with Christ’s victory”. This mission comes directly from Jesus, who commanded his disciples to share the Gospel with the world. As followers of Jesus, we grow in our own faith when we are committed to sharing the Gospel with those who don’t know Christ. We can go out into the world, knowing that God is with us when we share our faith. Sermon…

Grow in Faith

Do you think you can grow in faith? Or are you stuck? We know that Scripture is “God-breathed” and is “useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness”. But many of us have difficulty building a habit in reading God’s word regularly. We may perceive time constraints or feel intimidated by the size or complexity of the Bible. But we can all grow in faith. Using tools such as devotion series, reading plans, and videos on Scriptures helps us…

Give to Support

“Whoever sows generously will also reap generously.” Giving to church isn’t about obligation. We give offerings, use our abilities to serve Jesus, and offer up our time out of love to Jesus and to our church. God blesses the gifts we give cheerfully to His Kingdom. When we commit to serving God’s kingdom with time, talents, and treasures, we will see the benefits of our generosity in our church, community, and in our own hearts. Sermon Text: 2 Corinthians 9:6-15

Groups for Accountability

Worshiping Jesus in a large group is a huge blessing. But there are some things you can’t do in a large group. We can’t build intimate and trusting relationships. We can’t “spur one another on towards love and good deeds.” That’s why we need to gather in Life Groups. In a Life Group, we experience the powerful blessing of holding each other accountable to the Word of God. Sermon Text: Hebrews 10:19-25

Groups for Encouragement

We don’t just gather for worship; we gather in groups to encourage one another. No one has ever seen God, but the Apostle John says, “When we love one another God lives in us and is made complete in us.” So when we participate in a Life Group and love one another, we get the unique opportunity to experience the loving presence of God among us. We meet in Life Groups to encourage one another and grow closer to God.…

Neighboring

What is neighboring? How can we be genuinely loving agents of change for our neighbors and culture? In a hurting world filled with hurting people, what can Christians do to help our neighbors around us? We can point them to justice. We can assure them of peace. And we can show them love. Christ’s death and resurrection is for all of us, and so we can see our neighbors as forgiven sinners just like us. Sermon Text: 2 Corinthians 5:14-21

Joy in Meeting Others’ Needs

God doesn’t need anything from us. But other people do. When we meet the needs of others, we are doing the work of the Lord. Our offering of time, talents, and treasures to those around us brings us the joy of knowing we have made a difference, and it is a way for us to show others the love of Jesus. Sermon Text: Philippians 4:10-19

Joy in Teamwork

Humans are meant to be together, uniting in teamwork. God did not create us to be alone. When we work together in our families, with our coworkers, or on a sports team, we can find joy in teamwork. This joy is multiplied when we join as brothers and sisters in Christ, joining Jesus on his mission and sharing His good news. Sermon Text: Philippians 1:3-6

The Crisis of Race and Racism

This week, we’ll take a bit of a departure from the sermon series to examine a global crisis. It was present long before COVID-19, and some people don’t even see it as a crisis. The crisis is racism. Throughout history, groups of people have been isolated, minimized, and shunned because of their skin color or origins. In this message, we’ll look at what God has to say about how we should treat all people in the human race. Sermon Text:…

High Anxiety: Find Purpose in Suffering

When you’re suffering and in the middle of a tough time, it’s often difficult to find joy. The people to whom Peter was writing were being persecuted for sharing Jesus with their culture. Peter encourages them to “cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” We can learn from this advice too; when we focus on the promises of God and His love for us, rather than our earthly suffering, our perspective changes and we find purpose…

Live for God

Jesus is a life-changer. People who were once lost in sin are now alive in Christ. Peter reminds his readers of this when he writes, “they do not live the rest of their earthly lives for evil human desires, but rather for the will of God.” Live for God as seen in your purity and unity. This may not be popular in a culture who is against Christ, but God has you where you are to share the Gospel. Lead…

Hope Under Pressure

It’s a challenge to remain hopeful and not bitter when we’re under pressure. Let’s face it: we’re not going to always agree with the people around us. But that shouldn’t prevent us from serving them and caring for them. Peter calls his readers to “submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human authority” and “repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.” Do good in the world for Christ while…
