We want you to experience inspiring music, helpful teaching and preaching, friendly people, and a place where you feel welcome and “at home." No matter where you are in your spiritual journey—we have a place for you.
Worship with Us
We’re more than just a building
Victory Baptist Church is an exciting church with a love for people that flows from our love for God. We know of no place in the world with a more inviting welcome than you will find here. If you’re looking for a relevant message from a timeless book, then you will enjoy VBC! We have clear Bible preaching, a warm friendly atmosphere, a vision for the future, and a passion for knowing God.
People from all around the area have found Victory Baptist a place to call home. I hope you’ll join us this Sunday. You, too, may find that VBC is your “place to call home!”
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
EXPECT A WARM WELCOME
We love having guests at Victory Baptist, so be prepared to be greeted by our church family! You will find our people friendly, welcoming, and ready to do their best to make you feel right at home.
EXPECT A HELPFUL MESSAGE
We believe that God’s Word should be at the center of all that we do. The preaching will be straightforward and aimed at the heart…you can be confident that you will leave with something to take home and implement in your life this week!
EXPECT AN INVITATION TO RETURN
This may be your first time coming to Victory Baptist, but we certainly hope that it won’t be your last. Don’t be surprised if someone encourages you to come again or invites you to another gathering. We want you to know that you are welcome to join us any time you are able.
WHAT KIND OF CHURCH IS VBC?
We are a Baptist church which means that we believe the basic Bible doctrines for which Baptists have historically stood. We make no apologies for being Baptist and don’t try to hide that fact by taking the word out of our name. We are Baptists by conviction and principle, not by affiliation.
WHAT ARE THE SERVICES LIKE?
It depends on where you’re coming from! If you are used to a formal, ritualistic type church then you will think our worship is loud and lively. If you are used to a contemporary, Christian-rock style church then you will find us cold and formal.
Our music is traditional and conservative. We still like to sing the old hymns our grandparents used to sing because there is so much doctrine in those anointed songs. We may mix in some choruses here and there, but the old red hymnal gets used every service. During the service we may have several groups or soloists provide special music: we don’t have any rock bands but we do have some godly people who have been blessed with tremendous talent.
The main focus of each service is the preaching of God’s Word. Our pastor or a guest speaker will give a Bible message that addresses the problems of life. We believe the Bible has the answer to every problem and the power to comfort, correct, or instruct every need.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
There is not a dress code at Victory Baptist Church for our guests. We do believe that church is important enough to wear your best, so our ministry leaders and many of our church family dress in more traditional “Sunday” dress.
AM I EXPECTED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE OFFERING?
No. Though you are welcome to participate if you would like to, we don’t invite you to Victory Baptist Church for your offering. We simply want to be a blessing to you and hope that you will find Victory Baptist to be a place where you can develop a deep and personal relationship with God in a warm family atmosphere.
WHAT SECURITY DO YOU HAVE?
It is tragic that the question even needs to be raised, but with the violent attacks on churches in the past few years many churches have been wise to adopt security policies and procedures. At Victory, we have a trained security team monitoring the buildings and property during every service, and we conduct a security audit each year by an in-house security expert. We have additional security measures in place each week, but it would not be prudent to detail them publicly.
