Welcome to Victory!
We are one church with fifteen congregations in Metro Manila. We also have over sixty churches across the Philippines. Victory was planted in 1984 at the heart of Manila’s University Belt.
We honor God.
What does it mean to honor God?
At Victory, honoring God is the starting point and finish line of everything we do. We believe a life that honors Him is a life led according to His Word and in an attitude of complete surrender and obedience to Jesus Christ. For us, it is not about striving for perfection, but about living lives of:
- Lordship - Because Jesus is King of kings and Lord of lords, we believe that wholehearted submission to God’s will and His Word is the starting point and the foundation of spiritual growth.
- Evangelism – Because “God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16), we are passionate about preaching the gospel and doing ministry in a way that engages people outside of the Christian faith.
- Discipleship – Because we are called to make disciples, our primary focus is establishing biblical foundations, equipping believers to minister, and empowering disciples to make disciples.
- Leadership – Because we are called to establish churches in every nation, we are committed to leadership development. We are intentionally multi-generational and we deliberately create opportunities and platforms for next generation leaders.
- Family – Because family is the foundation and validation of ministry, we refuse to sacrifice our marriages and our children on the altars of temporal ministry success. And because God has called us to be a church family, we embrace community and reject the concept of disposable relationships.
Where do I START?
These five steps will get you off to the right START as you follow Christ:

- Turn away from everything the Bible calls sin.
- Attend a small group for personal discipleship and weekly worship services.
- Read and obey your Bible everyday.
- Tell others about your new relationship with Christ.

We make disciples.
What is a disciple?
A disciple is someone who:
- Follows Jesus
- Fishes for people
- Fellowships with other believers
These values lead to our discipleship process:
- Engage culture and community
- Establish biblical foundations
- Equip believers to minister
- Empower disciples to make disciples
How do I become a disciple?
At Victory, we believe that discipleship is best done in a group context. The primary way to make disciples in Victory is through Victory groups.
What is a Victory group?
Victory group is where we engage, establish, equip, and empower others. A Victory group meeting lasts from sixty to ninety minutes weekly. Its members help one another follow Jesus, fish for people, and fellowship with other believers.
How can I be part of a Victory group?
You can join a Victory group by asking the person who invited you, approaching an usher after the service, or talking to any one of our pastors and admin staff.
Where can I download free stuff from you guys?
Our Downloads section includes free podcasts and Victory group materials that we hope will help you honor God and make disciples. Please feel free to share these with your family and friends!
