Independent and Fundamental
Victory Baptist Church is not your typical Baptist church. We are independent and fundamental. Being independent means that we do not belong to any association or convention nor are we bound to any other governing body of any kind. We decide for ourselves how we function based solely upon Scriptural principles and the fundamental doctrines of the Bible.
Being fundamental means that we believe the Bible is the Word of God and is entirely accurate and truthful. Our practice our preaching and our teaching are based solely upon the Bible. We believe the Bible does not contain the Word of God, but rather it is the Word of God. Our commitment is not to make the Bible more palatable, but to make it more available through our outreach as well as our services.
There are a few things you will not find at Victory Baptist Church. You will not find modernistic views or practices. You will not find a disrespectful environment or casual attitude toward the things of God. You will not find an apology for our elevated view of God and all things that pertain to God.
What you will find is a warm, friendly and caring church where you will be loved and accepted. You will find people who love people. You will find a place where you can learn what God has for you and what God expects of you. You will find a family where you will fit in regardless of your origins or your status. You will find a warm embrace and a nurturing spirit where you can connect with the God who loves you and wants to bless you in amazing ways.
Victory is currently undergoing a rebuilding and restructuring phase, so you will, perhaps, not find some of the amenities offered by some of the larger churches. However, what you will find is a place to serve. If you want to be used of God to accomplish something on this planet far more important and far bigger than we are, Victory is the place for you. There are currently and there will be more opportunities for service than you can imagine.
If you’re looking for a place to fit in, if you’re looking for a place to feel a sense of belonging, if you’re looking for a place to be loved, if you’re looking for a place to serve, you’ve found it. All that is missing to make your search complete is you attending Victory.
Isn’t it time you had Victory in your life?

Brother Andrews has been our pastor since March of 2001. He and his lovely wife Alida moved here from Pine Bluff, Arkansas where Brother Andrews pastored for seven years before becoming our pastor. He has served the Lord for over forty years as a Bible College student, Associate Pastor, Missionary, Pastor and Bible College Professor. He holds a ThG from Pacific Coast Baptist Bible College located at the time in San Dimas, California and a Doctor of Humanities from Bethel Baptist College in Jacksonville, Arkansas.
He met his wife Alida while attending Bible College in California where they married in 1974. God blessed them with three wonderful children and three beautiful grandchildren. They have served together, traveled to many parts of the world together and have faced many life altering ordeals together. Their faith in a gracious God is strong and their commitment to serving Him is secure.
Their faith in God was greatly strengthened as they saw the Lord supply their needs time and again while they were serving as foreign missionaries in the Philippine Islands. There God allowed them to establish Bible Baptist Church a church that is thriving to this day. In fact that church has since been responsible for starting another seven churches one of which is in the country Bahrain.
Brother Andrews’ love for souls is evidenced not only by his years of faithful service, but by his daily care of the flock over which God has made him pastor. His commitment to honest, earnest and passionate preaching of God’s word will be evident from the very first time you attend one of our services. You will find his messages to be timely and his topics to be relevant.
