Victory News – November 22, 2019

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear friends, Have you ever played the kids game “follow the leader?” In this game, one person is the leader and the rest line up by behind him/her and do whatever the leader does or they get disqualified from the game. For Christians, Jesus is not only a Savior but also our Lord, our Leader. Jesus didn’t just teach; he led by example:  Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just…

Victory News – November 15, 2019

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Victory started in 2006 with a desire to connect to a changing world. Well, the world certainly changed. Only one year after Victory started, Steve Jobs launched the first iPhone, Facebook left college campuses, and Twitter became its own company. Victory has seen those changes and adapted. But there is another change that has swept the nation: The rise of the “nones”. Nones are those people who claim no religious affiliation whatsoever. And in the past ten…

Victory News – October 25, 2019

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Here are some mission statements you might recognize: “To inspire and nurture the human spirit – one person, one cup and one neighborhood at a time.” (Starbucks)  “To organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.” (Google) “To seek and save the lost.” (Jesus) What is your mission in life?  What if your mission is way too small? This weekend, we are going to look at the big mission that Jesus has for…

Victory News – November 23, 2018

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, Wow. Black Friday deals. I saw large screen TV’s for outrageously low prices. Video games, toys, and jewelry prices slashed. One discount after another. Black Friday is a shopper’s delight. Wow. Good Friday deals. I would have never been able to afford it, not even close. But because of a Good Friday long ago where our Savior was slashed and crucified, our sins were paid for in full. This is not a discount where we still…

Victory News – November 16, 2018

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, It is that time of year when we cover up with a blanket and sip on a cup of coffee or hot chocolate to stay warm and comfortable. Sometimes as Christians, we cover up what is really going on in our lives. We cover up our hurts by avoiding them and keeping busy. To try to cover up our sins, we do good works. We try to cover up our cold hearts by becoming upset with…

Victory News – November 9, 2018

PASTOR’S MESSAGE Dear Friends, The struggle is real.  We all go through difficult times, some more so than others. I want you to know Jesus is real too. That doesn’t mean everything is going to be easy and okay right now. But it does mean when you are tempted, Jesus understands because he was tempted too. When you are going through tough times, Jesus knows what that is like. He was there too. When you go through the valley of the…

Victory News – Shrewd Generosity

Dear Friends, The artwork was first commissioned by Louis XII of France and later owned by Charles I of England. But the “Salvador Mundi” had disappeared and was presumed lost in the late 18th Century. The DaVinci masterpiece reappeared in an auction in 1958. The painting was deemed a copy and sold for just under $60. The “Salvador Mundi” was acquired by a group of art dealers for around $10,000 in 2005. Turning $60 into $10,000 is pretty shrewd, wouldn’t…
