Statement of Faith
Without apology, Victory Baptist Church holds to the following statement of faith:
1. We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments alone, as verbally, plenary inspired of God, inerrant in the original writing and that they are of supreme and final authority of faith and practice.
2. We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, yet One in substance and equal in every Divine perfection.
3. We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, and is both true God and true man.
4. We believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from God to convict the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment; to regenerate, sanctify, and comfort.
5. We believe that man was created in the image of God; that he sinned, and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death, which is separation from God, and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature, and in the case of those who reach moral responsibility, become sinners in thought, word and deed. We believe therefore, that those who accept Christ as Savior shall be forever in God’s presence and that those who reject Christ as Savior will be forever separated from God.
6. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, according to the Scripture, and that all who receive Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood.
7. We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into Heaven, and in His present life there for us as High Priest and Intercessor.
8. We believe in “that blessed hope”, the personal, visible, premillennial, and imminent return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
9. We believe that all who repent of sin and receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again and thereby become sons of God.
10. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust, the everlasting, conscious blessedness of the saved in Heaven, and the everlasting, conscious punishment of the lost in Hell.
11. We believe that there are two church ordinances: Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Baptism is the immersion of a believer in water and is properly called “Believer’s Baptism”. The Lord’s Supper is the commemoration of the Lord’s death until He comes and our continual fellowship with Him.
