Our Beliefs

What We Believe

Victorious Faith Christian Worship Center accepts the Scriptures as the revealed will of God and the all-sufficient rule of faith and practice and for the purpose of maintaining general unity, adopts these statements as fundamental truths and doctrine: There is one God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

SCRIPTURE: We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God. The Bible is a revelation from God, to man, by the Holy Spirit and is the infallible rule of faith and conduct. It is true, final, and eternal. It is the total counsel of God for the salvation of mankind. 1 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Peter 1:23-25; Hebrews 4:12

TRIUNE GODHEAD: We believe the triune Godhead is comprised of three separate and distinct personalities, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Each are eternally self-existent, and self-revealed, and they function as one in agreement, in purpose, in goal, and in will. 1 John 5:7; Matthew 28:19

God the Father. We believe God the Father is the Creator and sustainer of all things. In love, He created the universe to respond to Him. He created man in His own image for fellowship.

God the Son. We believe Jesus Christ was God manifested in the flesh, begotten of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary. In the flesh, He is all God and all Man. We believe He died physically for our sins. He is able to redeem all mankind because death was defeated through His resurrection. We believe He is seated at the right hand of God the Father as High Priest and advocate of those who receive Him. Matthew 1:20; Luke 1:35; Romans 4:24; Ephesians 1:20; 4:8; Colossians 1:18; 2:13-15; 1 Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 1:3

God the Holy Spirit. The Scripture ascribes to the Holy Spirit the acts and attributes of an intelligent being. As an instrumental segment of the triune Godhead, He guides, knows, moves, gives information, commands, forbids, sends forth, and reproves. He indwells the New Covenant Believer and can be sinned against. Genesis 1:2; Mark 3:29; John 16:7-8, 13; Acts 7:51; 10:19; 13:2,4; 16:6; Romans 8:11; 1 Corinthians 2:11-12; Ephesians 4:30

MAN’S FALL: We believe man (Adam) was created in the image of God. As a direct result of Adam’s voluntary transgression, every person born into this world enters with a fallen sinful nature and is depraved. Genesis 1:26-31; 3:1-24; Romans 3:25; 5:12-21

THE SALVATION OF MAN: We believe God sent Jesus Christ as the Savior for all mankind. Through the Savior’s shed blood on the cross, He became a substitute for every person, who, by faith, accepts Him as their personal Savior. We believe all that receive Him through faith, not works, are Born Again and are members of the family of God and the body of Christ. The inward evidence to the believer of his salvation is the direct witness of the Spirit. The outward evidence is a lifestyle of holiness. John 3:1-18; 5:24; 10:7-28; Romans 8:16; 1 Timothy 2:5-6; 1 John 3:8; 5:11-13

THE CHURCH: We believe the church is the body of Christ. Each believer, born in the Spirit, is an essential part of the general assembly and Church of the First Born, who are written in heaven. 1 Corinthians 12:12-27; Ephesians 1:22; 2:19-22; Hebrews 12:23

CHURCH DISCIPLINE: We believe in church discipline administered in a spirit of meekness, love, and confidentially. The purpose of such discipline is restoration. Matthew 18:15-17; 1 Corinthians 5; Galatians 6:1

BAPTISM IN WATER: We believe in baptism by immersion as an ordinance of the church. Each member of the body of Christ should be baptized, but it is a not requirement to be born again. Baptism is an outward sign of what God has already done in an individual’s life. It also serves as a testimony to all that the person now belongs to Jesus. Matthew 28:19; Acts 8:38; 16:33; Romans 6:4; Colossians 2:12

THE LORD’S SUPPER: We believe the Lord’s Supper is an ordinance of the church. It commemorates the death of our Lord and is done in remembrance of Him. It is an outward sign of our participation in Him until He returns. Matthew 26:26-28; 1 Corinthians 11:23-32

GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT. We believe in the manifestation and operation of the nine gifts of the Spirit listed in 1 Corinthians 12:8-11. We believe they are for public and private use, but they are to be judged and operated under the guidance and correction of the Scriptures. 1 Corinthians 2:15; 14:29; 1 John 4:1

BAPTISM IN THE SPIRIT: We believe the promise from the Father to the believer is the baptism of the Holy Spirit. The physical sign is speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance. Luke 24:49; Acts 1:8; 2:4; 10:44-46; 19:2-6; 1 Corinthians 12:1-32

DIVINE HEALING: By the power of God, through the prayer of faith, the physical body can be healed. Healing is provided in the redemptive work of Christ and is available to all who believe. Isaiah 53:3-5; Matthew 8:17; Mark 16:18; James 5:14-15; 1 Peter 2:24

LAYING ON OF HANDS: We believe the laying on of hands is a Biblical practice. In Mark 10:13-16, Jesus practiced it as a blessing. We believe and practice the laying on of hands for infant dedications, for healing, to confer offices, and to receive and cultivate the anointing. Mark 5:22-31, 41; Acts 6:2-6; 28:8; 1 Timothy 4:14

FINANCIAL SUPPORT: We believe Scripture requires believers to support the programs and needs of the church through tithes and offerings, in proportion to and as the Lord prospers them. Malachi 3:10; 1 Corinthians 16:1-2; 2 Corinthians 9:6-9; Hebrews 7:1-8

We look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the age to come.
