Victory News – April 26, 2019

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, The NFL draft began last night. And with the first pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Arizona Cardinals selected Kyler Murray, quarterback from Oklahoma. Can you imagine how exciting it is to hear your name called in the draft? Not only are you wanted, you become an instant millionaire and are set for life. I didn’t get drafted to play in the NFL. Probably not shocking, right? But I have great news for me and…

Victory News – April 19, 2019

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Tough love is hard. It is hard to keeps its promises. Just ask any parent how easy it is to cave. But God is the perfect parent with perfect love, and so he keeps his promises perfectly. (John 19: 34) Instead, one of the soldiers pierced Jesus’ side with a spear, bringing a sudden flow of blood and water. The man who saw it has given testimony, and his testimony is true. He knows that he…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, It is that time of year when change is in the air.  Monday it was 70 degrees, and it was snowing on Wednesday. That’s quite a change. As we go through life, we go through changing seasons. Some changes are more difficult than others; some are scary, some are welcomed, and some are for our good. The greatest change agent of all is our Savior Jesus Christ. He changes everything. By grace through faith in Jesus…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, I’m in the middle of the stockyards in Forth Worth, TX. It looks a little different now than it used to, but there is a lot of history here. From the original brick walkways to the wooden corrals, every inch of the stockyards tells the true history of Texas’s famous livestock industry. In the life of the Christian church, the tension is rising as we get closer to the dusty roads of the Via Dolorosa and…

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, I’m so pumped – spring is here. Spring is full of new life and nice weather. Time to start grilling! Have you grilled yet? I have… three times. But I will be honest, the results have been mixed. The first time, it was burgers on the grill. I couldn’t wait, and neither could the fire. We had pizza that night. Next time, it was wings. I was so keyed. They were just starting to smell good,…

Victory News – April 6, 2018

Dear Friends, Easter brings to us the truth of new beginnings. Jesus is no longer dead; he is alive. And because Jesus is alive, we have a Savior who brings to us new beginnings every day. That is exciting news because so often we live with the guilt, the shame, the regrets, and the resentment of the past. Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you…

Victory News – March 30, 2018

Hi Friends, How are your Easter preparations coming along?  There is so much to do. For some, it is buying, making, or baking for the Easter baskets, or Easter dinner  . . . and don’t forget about the Easter breakfast at the Victory Café. Maybe your to-do list includes buying new clothes, finding new shoes, or getting your hair cut. Maybe it is about fixing up the guest room for family or friends who will be staying with you.  You…

Victory News – March 23, 2018

Dear Friends, I am excited for this upcoming Holy Week. It is a week of great redemptive potential because the message of the cross and the victory of Christ over sin, death, and Satan is so blatantly clear. Often when I think of the redemptive story, I think of going out “into the world” (i.e. mission work).  Sometimes, I’m like Peter and put the cart before the horse. I get so revved up to tell others what Jesus has done…

Victory News – March 9, 2018

Dear Friends – Have you ever tried to cover up something? “Tilted Halos” is the title of a chapter in a book called The Ragamuffin Gospel. It begins with a man who has such a terrible headache that he finds himself in his doctor’s office. The doctor asks him a few questions to try and get to the bottom of problem.  The doctor asks, “Do you drink a lot of liquor?” Indignantly that man says, “I never touch the filthy…

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…

Ten Years of Victory!

Dear Friends, Ten years ago. A decade! On Palm Sunday in 2007, our brand new church, Victory of the Lamb, held our first Grand Opening service at the Polonia Soccer Club which we rented on Sunday mornings. It was a one room building that could fit just over one-hundred people. This was our introduction to the community and the first major effort we made to share Christ’s victory with our neighbors. None of us knew then what God had in…
