Victory Baptist Church Doctrinal Statement

  1. We believe that the Scriptures of both the Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired of God and that they are the supreme and final authority for faith and practice. We accept the Authorized King James Bible to be the Word of God, without error. (II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:21; Revelation 22:18-19)

  2. We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (I John 5:7; Matthew 28:19)

  3. We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, and born of the virgin Mary, and is true God and true man. (Matthew 1:20-21; Luke 1:35-36; Luke 2:10-11)

  4. We believe that man was created in the image of God; that he sinned and thereby incurred, not only physical death, but also that 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. ( Romans 3:23; Romans 5:12, Genesis 1:26-27, I Corinthians 11:7)

  5. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, as representative and substitutionary sacrifice; and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood. ( I Corinthians 15:3-4; Colossians 1:14; Ephesians 1:7; Romans 5:9)

  6. We believe that all those, and only those, who by faith receive the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior, are miraculously born again of the Holy Spirit, and thereby, without benefit of any human merit, or religious rite of ceremony, partake of the Divine Life and nature and are sealed by the Holy Spirit from time and eternity. (II Corinthians 5:21; II Corinthians 1:22; I John 5:11-13; Ephesians 1:13; Ephesians 4:30)

  7. We believe that, at the time of the New Birth, the believer receives the Holy Spirit and by Him is baptized into the body of Christ; is forever indwelt by the Holy Spirit as guide and comforter; and if yielded to Him is empowered for service. (John 1:32-34; Acts 15:8; Romans 6:13; Romans 12:1-2)

  8. We believe the church consists of regenerated believers who have been scripturally baptized and banded together for worship, spiritual fellowship and the work of spreading the Gospel to the ends of the earth. That our Lord Jesus Christ, is the "Head of the Body, and Church." Baptisms and the Lord's supper are the only church ordinances. (Ephesians 1:22-23; Colossians 1:9-22; Acts 10:34-48; Matthew 28:19-20; I Corinthians 11:24-30)

  9. We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into Heaven, and in His present life there as High Priest and the Advocate for us. (Hebrews 9:24; Hebrews 10-20-21; I Timothy 2:5-6)

  10. We believe in "that blessed hope," the personal, Pre-tribulational, Premillenial, and imminent return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. (I Thessalonians 4:13-18; II Thessalonians 2:1-3)

  11. We believe in the bodily resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost. (I Peter 5:8; Revelation 20:12-15)

  12. We Believe that Satan is a real being, a personal devil; that he, the enemy of God, the "father of lies," the great deceiver of mankind, is the instigator of all false systems of religion, and that, with him all persistent followers of such will find their end in the lake of fire. (II Corinthians 11:13-16; Ephesians 2:2; II Corinthians 4:3-4; Revelation 20:2)

  13. We believe in separation from the world: all believers are called into a life of separation from all wordly and sinful practices. (James 4:4; Romans 12:1-2; II Corinthians 6:14-18)
