Victory Core Values: Generosity

In the early church, when the people experienced a famine, Barnabas and Paul demonstrated generosity. They gathered an offering to help the people affected by the famine. They gave the little they had to help their brothers and sisters in Christ. At Victory, we have a culture of generosity that allows us to meet our needs as a church but also reach out into our community to share the love of Christ through acts of service and financial giving.

Core Values: Pursuing Excellence

The Apostle Paul pursued excellence. As best he could, he preached the truth in a way that everyone in his audience could understand. He knew that Jesus was the only one who could achieve perfection. Yet, Paul worked tirelessly to reach people with Jesus. We give God our first and our best, pursuing excellence in all we do to be positive representatives of His Kingdom. Sermon Text: 1 Corinthians 9:19-27

Core Values: Connected

As Peter began his ministry, the Holy Spirit told Peter to connect with the Gentiles. This was a radical directive, because, according to the Jewish people, the Gentiles were unclean and not of God. Because of Jesus’ sacrifice, all people are forgiven children of God. At Victory, we believe the love of Jesus compels us to evaluate and create new ways to effectively communicate the Gospel.  The Gospel does not change, but our culture changes constantly. This includes staying connected…

Joyful and Fun

Worshiping Jesus isn’t always easy. It means sacrifice. It may even lead to persecution. And yet, we can worship the Lord with joy, even in the face of persecution, because God gives us strength and hope. At Victory, we share the joy of faith honestly, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously. In worship and throughout everything we do, we find ways to share Jesus with joy and fun. Sermon Text: Acts 4:23-31

Welcoming – Victory Core Value

The early Christians didn’t have worship spaces with electricity, heat, and plumbing. But they did have each other. They gave up everything to meet the needs of the poor, shared meals together, and grew in faith as a united group of believers. When we say one of our core values is to be welcoming, we mean that we share life together through worship, small groups, serving, and meeting the needs of the people in our church and our community.
