Victory News – Scripture Alone

Dear Friends, Diamond cutting is the practice of changing a diamond from a rough stone into a faceted gem. Cutting a diamond requires specialized knowledge, tools, equipment, and techniques because of its extreme difficulty. One miss hit and the diamond can be ruined. Since I shake a lot, I probably would be very good at cutting diamonds. There is a diamond, however, that for many of us, is at our hands everyday. It is the diamond jewel known as God’s…

Victory News July 7, 2017

Dear Friends, Here are a few things that happened at Victory since Pastor Ben wrote Victory News last Friday – in no particular order and there were a lot more – because God is like that!  1. Branches Band and Pastor Ben led us in worship.  You can review, see for the first time, or share his message here. 2. Two children were adopted by God through baptism (yay Aria and Jared!).  3. Some of our teens and leaders decorated…

Victory News – June 23, 2017 – Big Problems Bigger God!

Dear friends, Last night the storms came through. I think for most of us that meant lightening, thunder and downpours of rain.  For some in the South, however, those storms meant not only lightening, thunder and rain but also destructive tornadoes and the loss of property and possessions. Sometimes in life, we encounter Big Problems. This weekend, as we continue our series “Prayer is Powerful,” our mission partner from St. Lucia, Pastor Bramdeo Ramgolam, is going to dive deep into…

Prayer Is Powerful!

“If God is for me, who can be…who can be against me???” This isn’t just the chorus to the catchiest soccer camp song of all time (You’re welcome, parents?). It’s also a promise of God recorded in the Bible (check out Romans 8:31-39)! Since God has already given us his greatest gift in Jesus who went to the cross for us and has defeated sin, death, and the devil for us, we can therefore trust God for everything else that…

A Life Worth Living

Hi Friends, This weekend I’m planning on cleaning our garage. I wonder what I will find. As many of us begin to do spring cleaning, we are finding out that we have things we didn’t realize that we had. Last weekend our senior assistant, Peter Schlicht, let us in on a truth that we sometimes forget. We are not empty but we are full because we are in Christ who lavishes his grace on us! Here is his message in…

The Tomb Is Still Empty!

Wonderfully full house on Easter! Dear Friends, Good news…the tomb is still empty! So even if you’ve been the victim of a Craigslist scam or something worse…the victory that Jesus Christ pulled off on Easter when he rose from the dead is still the single most decisive event in history. Because your Savior lives…nothing now, not even the curse of sin, can take away or rob you of the inheritance you have in heaven! That’s what Pastor Bill is going…

An Aha! Inauguration

Questions have abounded the last couple weeks about who would show up at today’s Presidential inauguration. It seems that many people think that making an appearance of any kind much less a performance makes a statement about the individual being inaugurated into office. But if so then what matters most is who decided to show up when Jesus was inaugurated! Of course I’m not talking about being inaugurated for the office of POTUS, but for something even more important: the…

Two Great Opportunities For Growth!

Hi Friends, It’s a new year of God’s grace. That means he wants to help you grow. He wants to help you overcome discouragement and embrace challenges because he knows that you’ll come out stronger on the other side. He wants you to find a fresh new confidence in who you really are—a dearly loved child of God. He wants you to know that with faith…all things are possible! We’re excited to offer two great opportunities for you to grow…

Victory News – January 4, 2017

Have you ever had one of those epiphany moments when something just clicked? Maybe you were experiencing angst over some decision or you didn’t know how to solve a problem. And then, just like that, it all became clear. Suddenly, you wonder why you didn’t see it earlier. The world we live in has some pretty serious issues with God and the Bible. There are things he does that just don’t seem to make sense. It’s like, in some ways,…
