Searching? We're here to help you find direction.
We are glad you are visiting our website today and pray that you will be blessed. We are a fundamental, Bible believing Church that exalts Christ in Worship and our daily lives. We are a praying Church that believes in the freedom of worship and praise, with the preached Word the focal point of our service. We invite you to visit and worship with us.
Here on our website you will find a number of resources for you and your loved ones that will edify your lives in Christ Jesus. We feel that the website is a great extension to the ministry of our Church. We live in a day where there are so many Churches that are filled with way too many empty pews. The world is so consumed with living its every day life that God and His Churches have taken a back seat in our lives. We have found that when some one is asked, "Do you go to Church anywhere?" Nearly every single person will tell you, "Yes, I go to Church." Then when asked, "How often?" That person usually replies with a number that is less than 5 times a year. But Why?
People are just too busy for God... To ask someone to give up a few hours a week for the Creator and Sustainer of the Universe is just too much for most people in our society today. Believer's say they "believe" but to the believer, What exactly is it that you believe? And to the Christians who claim to know Christ, Does He Know You?
We are a very caring congregation and it won’t take you long to discover that we are truly a family, rich in the relationships that matter most. Growing together, we worship, we serve, we laugh, we cry, we learn, and we reach out to our world with the life-transforming truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our doors are open. Our hearts are open, too. We look forward to seeing you and hope you will join us in worship soon. For your convenience, a schedule of our weekly services are located in the right column. Again, we hope to see you soon! God Bless You!
Victory Baptist Church will be "the end of your search for a friendly church!"
The Circle of Our Impact
One of today’s great tragedies is that so many people live chaotic lives with no real purpose. We would expect this from non-believers, but Christians should live out the knowledge that God has a very specific purpose for each person. When we consider what He has invested in us, it is no wonder that He wants to see us bear fruit in the lives of others. We can powerfully impact those in our circle of influence, much the way a stone tossed into a pond will make expanding concentric ripples.
In today’s passage, Jesus describes believers as light and calls us to reflect Him in a sin-darkened culture. Like the moon reflecting the light of the sun, we are to let the truth and beauty of the indwelling Christ shine out through our conduct, conversation, and character. In doing so, we must put away sin because it diminishes our light, as does soot on the globe of a lantern.
Our influence on others should be purposeful rather than haphazard. We ought to ask ourselves which people we are impacting. Are we in fact making a difference in anyone’s life? The truth is, we can turn our “ripples” into powerful waves for God that affect wide circles of individuals. For instance, consider the impact of prayer. There’s no end to its possibilities—your influence can extend to the remotest places on earth when you are on your knees before the Lord.
Don’t ever underestimate the scope and circle of your influence when you are obedient to God. By following Him, you live out what it means to be the “light of the world.”
