About Us

The mission of Victory Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church is to worship God with our whole selves and to equip and empower the body of Christ with a Bible-based, Christ Centered ministry.
Our vision is to be one body in several locations across the world for generations to come, effectively affecting communities with a message of hope, where people are encouraged to come meet a Man Who can handle everything concerning them and they will recover from the ailments that consume them.

Since we are the people of God through Jesus Christ our Lord it is necessary that we understand the Church exists to bring glory to God in all we do.  The local church has five purposes it must fulfill in order to carry out the Great Commission and truly be the Church God is calling:


  We worship God.  We cannot worship without the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.  We are commanded to worship the Lord in spirit and in truth (John 4:24); we are told to come into His gates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise (Psalm 100:4).  We are further told that true Holy Spirit-filled worship consists of preaching, singing, praying, Scripture reading, and giving of our tithes and offerings.


(Matthew 28:19-20:  “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.  Amen.” NKJV).  Within this model the Lord left on record two functions: discipleship (literally, showing people how to be like Christ), and teaching (the explanation of the Scriptures with the aim toward growth and development).


Fellowshipping calls us to community.  We are not to be any community, but a community of believers in Christ.  We are partners, sharers in a common interest (Acts 2:42).  The partnership involves participation and cooperation in the work of the gospel (Phil 1:5) and providing assistance to and contributions for thos in need (II Corinthians 8:4; 9:13).


Ministry is our service to others.  All believers are ministers.  Ministry consists of Christians using their spiritual gifts for service within the body of Christ.


Our mission is to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ to the whole world.  It is in its simplest terms “being witnesses.”  Jesus calls on the entire body to do evangelism.
