We are now in Ipil, Zamboanga Sibugay!

We are now in Ipil, Zamboanga Sibugay!

On November 11, Sunday, we officially launched our church in the most populous municipality of Zamboanga Sibugay—Ipil!

Ipil is a just few hours away from the key cities in the region and is right in the middle of Zamboanga City, Pagadian, and Dipolog. It is home to many universities in the province: Western Mindanao State University, Medina College, Marian College, and Sibugay Technical Institute, Inc.

We are in faith that more students and families will know God more through our new church. We also believe that more leaders will be raised in the campuses and make a great impact in this city and region.

What started off as small groups gathering every week eight years ago has slowly grown into a church worshiping God together. Through God’s grace, Victory Ipil now holds regular worship services on Sundays at 10:00 a.m. in the Sibugay Grand Plaza Hotel.

It is our prayer that through this new church in Ipil, more people will come to know Christ in campuses and communities. Together, let us pray for Victory Ipil and believe for greater things in the municipality and the whole province!

Victory Ipil is our ninety-fourth church outside Metro Manila. Click here to find a church near you! You are welcome to join our worship services across the Philippines!

Come and join our church in San Miguel, Bulacan!

Come and join our church in San Miguel, Bulacan!

We thank God for His grace and favor as we officially launch our church in San Miguel, Bulacan this quarter!

San Miguel is a municipality in the province of Bulacan, which is known as a place of historical significance in the Philippines. This municipality used to be a camp of the Katipuneros, and the headquarters of Emilio Aguinaldo. Many political figures also came from here, including Noli Me Tángere financier Máximo Viola and former Manila mayor Alfredo Lim.

We believe that the residents of San Miguel can continue to make a difference in our nation, which is why we reach out to the leaders in this community and the future leaders in campuses such as San Miguel National High School. This school alone has a population of over 10,000 students who have the potential to influence different spheres of our society.

We are thankful to the people from San Miguel who heard the gospel in our Baliwag church and brought it to their hometown in 2015! Multiple Victory groups started to grow since then, until we had to eventually look for a place to hold worship services in the area. By God’s grace, we found an excellent facility where we have been holding services every Sunday at 10:00 a.m. since January 21, 2018. If you have family and friends in the area, you may invite them to our location at the 2nd floor of Dazal Building along Magsaysay Road in San Juan, San Miguel, Bulacan.

Let us continue to pray for our church in San Miguel. Pray for God’s wisdom and strength to be upon the pastors and staff. Believe that our church will continue to be salt and light to the communities in Bulacan through the preaching and demonstration of the gospel.

We look forward to seeing more of God’s expansive work in Central Luzon!

We’re lighting a path in Candelaria!

We’re lighting a path in Candelaria!

This December 10, we are looking forward to honoring God and making disciples with the grand church launch of our third church in Quezon Province: the bustling municipality of Candelaria!

The second largest industrial center in Quezon after Lucena City, Candelaria is the third-most populous municipality in the province. Its history dates back a couple of centuries to the mid-1800s, and with a population of more than 117,000 spread about across 25 barangays, we are confident that God is doing and will continue to do great things through His children in Candelaria!

We are also looking forward to engaging students in more than 50 elementary, high school, and college campuses in Candelaria, trusting God will use the next generation of nation-builders and leaders from Quezon as we empower them towards leadership, integrity, faith, and excellence.

The grand launch of Victory Calendaria will be on December 10, 10:00 a.m., at the Quezon Premier Hotel in Barangay Masin Sur, Candelaria, Quezon province. Please invite your family and friends to join us as we honor God and make disciples in Quezon!

Bangued, Abra, here we come!

Bangued, Abra, here we come!

This November 26, we are excited to honor God and make disciples with our grand church launch in the heart of Abra: Bangued!

The capital municipality of Abra, Bangued is the fifth-largest municipality in the Cordillera Administrative Region. Despite the large size, Bangued is a closely knit community of people, many of whose families date back to the early settlers of the town in the 1600s. As Abra’s political, economic, and cultural hub, and with almost 50,000 people spread across 31 barangays, we believe Bangued is home to many of Abra’s finest influencers and future nation-changers.

We are also excited to engage students in Bangued! With 24 educational institutions throughout the municipality, we are excited to empower the next generation of the nation’s leaders with leadership, integrity, faith, and excellence. We have Victory group leaders in place, ready to connect to students at the Abra State Institute of Science and Technology and Abra Valley Colleges, and by God’s grace, we have also started Victory groups in the homes of a few of our leaders, and are reaching out to kids, young professionals, and young families.

The grand launch of Victory Bangued will be on November 26, 10:00 a.m., at the third floor of the ADTEMPCO Function Hall, Taft corner La Sala Streets, Zone 4, Bangued, Abra; for updates, you may Like Victory Bangued‘s page on Facebook. Please invite your family and friends to join us as we continue to honor God and make disciples!

Victory to Launch Services in Valenzuela City

Victory to Launch Services in Valenzuela City

This Sunday, we will celebrate God’s faithfulness in opening an opportunity for us to honor Him and make disciples in Valenzuela!

Starting on October 1, we will have 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. weekend services at Cinema 3 of SM Center Valenzuela. We are excited to engage and preach the gospel on this side of the metro which is known as the “Gateway to the North.”

Let us pray that God will use our new church community in Valenzuela to be the salt and light to over 600,000 people who live in that area. Believe that they will be a blessing as well to the surrounding areas such as Bulacan, Caloocan, Malabon, and Quezon City.

Welcome our new church in Bataan: Victory Limay!

Welcome our new church in Bataan: Victory Limay!

We are launching our newest church plant, located in the historical province of Bataan. Please welcome Victory Limay!

This fresh church plant started with a ONE 2 ONE meeting in one of the business establishments in the city. From there, a Victory group composed of the company’s employees began meeting regularly, and they grew in number as the months progressed.

The church held its first weekly service in April 2015, at one of the company’s boardrooms! More and more people got wind of the weekly services, so much so that even non-employees would come and attend.

That same year, students began to meet in groups at the Limay Polytechnic College. During the eight weeks that they met, the students became discipled, led their own Victory groups, and eventually became part of the team of volunteers helping establish the church.

Because of the growing number of people joining our church plant, we moved to a bigger location, which is now where Victory Limay currently meets.

On Sunday, December 4, join us as we officially launch Victory Limay! Services will be held every Sunday, 2 PM, at Aguinaldo St., Brgy. Bo. Luz/Kitang 2, in Limay.

Please continue to stand with us in prayer—for greater growth, not just in numbers, but in each church member’s walk with God! We are in faith that as we reach out to more students, employees, and families, more and more lives will be transformed by the saving power of Jesus Christ.

If you have family or friends in the area, invite them to our newest church plant in Bataan—Victory Limay!

Victory Talavera Has Officially Launched!

Victory Talavera Has Officially Launched!

Talavera 4Last September 18, Sunday, we witnessed the grand launch of a new church plant in the heart of Nueva Ecija: Victory Talavera! Our 76th provincial church officially launched on the second floor of Amini Building, located along Maharlika Highway at Zone 6, Maestrang Kikay. Their worship services will be regularly held at this venue every Sunday at 9:30am.

Under the leadership of Pastor Jeff and Niña Roque, church planting efforts started in 2013. With the help of Victory Cabanatuan, the church was able to steadily establish their presence and start engaging the people in the area. By God’s grace, from their previous venue at the second floor of LandBank, Victory Talavera was able to secure a new center at the Amini Building.

A motorcade kicked off the launch, with volunteers and leaders onboard. Bishop Juray Mora, Victory Philippines’ National Director, graced the launch as a guest speaker. Our other churches in Central Luzon also came to celebrate with Victory Talavera.

Talavera 3Conveniently located along the busy thoroughfare of Maharlika Highway, the Amini Building is accessible and easily identifiable to many Talavera residents. Because it intersects with a lot of access points from different parts of Central Luzon, Victory Talavera is situated at a place that makes it easy to engage and invite people to the church.

Let us continue to pray for open doors and open hearts, so that more disciples and leaders will be raised for God’s glory. Together, let us intercede for this new church plant’s leadership team, volunteers and staff as they continue to advance God’s kingdom in this part of the Philippines.

Victory is Now in Agoo!

Victory is Now in Agoo!

Victory Agoo3Located at the province of La Union in Ilocos, Agoo is one of the established Spanish settlements in the region. It is home to the Dinengdeng Festival and is a bustling hub of activity due to its accessibility via the National Highway.

Under the leadership of Pastor Homer Bumanglag, Victory Agoo was officially launched last year in October at the Victory Agoo center located along the National Highway in Santa Barbara, La Union. Mayor Sandra Eriguel and Vice Mayor Henry Balbin graced the launch, along with the leaders and pastors of our other Victory centers. Regular worship services are now held at this venue every Sunday at 10 am.

We are expectant at what God will do in and through this church plant as more and more people get to hear the gospel in Agoo. Soon, the center will also hold regular KIDS church activities at the KIDS church room currently being constructed. Because reaching the next generation is also important for our leaders there, Every Nation Campus Agoo regularly conducts discipleship meetings and events to engage the youth in the area, and the nearby campuses.

Together, let us intercede for our pastors, Victory group leaders and volunteers in Victory Agoo as they advance God’s kingdom in this part of the Philippines. We also encourage you to invite your friends and family in the area to attend Victory Agoo’s worship services soon. We are in faith that as God allows this church to grow in number, He will also cause growth in the spiritual lives of families, students and young professionals in La Union.

Another Victory Church in Nueva Ecija to Launch Soon

Another Victory Church in Nueva Ecija to Launch Soon

Talavera5Church planting efforts are intensifying in Nueva Ecija as we continue to establish more churches there. Recently, we announced the launch of Victory Cabanatuan’s new worship service at SM City Cabanatuan. Now, we’re excited to honor God and make disciples in Talavera, Nueva Ecija!

Victory Talavera recently moved to its new location at the second floor of Amini Building, located along Maharlika Highway at Zone 6, Maestrang Kikay. Previously located at the second floor of LandBank near the plaza and the Municipal Hall, Victory Talavera will officially launch on September 18, Sunday.

Led by the leadership team of Victory Cabanatuan, the church conducted their first Sunday service at the new building just last month, July 24, with an overflow of attendees and volunteers. Sunday worship services will be regularly held at this new venue, at 9:30 am, with Kids Church happening simultaneously.

Talavera is a municipality in Nueva Ecija, with many national roads passing through it. Due to its central location, it is one of the pivotal transport points in Central Luzon. We are in faith that God will cause amazing things to happen to Talavera’s inhabitants as the church makes it possible for more people to be reached out and discipled.

Welcome, Victory General Mariano Alvarez!

Join us this Sunday as we launch our 75th Victory church plant: Victory Gen. Mariano Alvarez!

Launch Details - Victory Gen Mariano Alvarez

From its humble beginnings as one initial Victory group that met here in June of 2015, our community has grown to 15 Victory groups that now meet in commercial establishments and campuses—specifically, the University of Perpetual Help.

“We started a monthly gathering in the University of Perpetual Help,” says Arnel Gallardo, our lead pastor in this church plant, “with an average of 120 attendees. More than 25 Victory groups and Victory group leaders were raised from those monthly meetings.”

Indeed, we make it a point to reach the campuses of the cities where we plant churches, so we can train and empower the next generation of leaders to make disciples.

Soon enough, our church plant steadily grew, and began holding worship services in Portal Mall. We are expectant and excited for more families, campuses, and businesses to be reached with the gospel.

Join us this Sunday, August 7, at 10 AM, at the Arena, in Portal Mall, for the grand launch of Victory Gen. Mariano Alvarez! Invite your family and friends!

Victory Launches New Carmona Church

Victory Launches New Carmona Church

Last June 12, Sunday, we witnessed the grand launch of a new church plant in the province of Cavite: Victory Carmona.

Our 74th Victory provincial church officially launched on the third floor of the 88 Building, located in Barangay Maduya, Carmona. It will have its regular weekly services every Sunday at 10:30 am.

Scouting for the church’s venue began last year with the team of Pastor Noel Bibat at its helm. By God’s grace, they were able to secure a location last June 2015. Conveniently located along the busy thoroughfare of Governor’s Drive, the 88 Building is accessible and easily identifiable to many Carmona residents. Restaurants, banks, shops, and service centers can be found in the building, attracting a lot of customers and passersby to the venue. Because of its easily identifiable location and the numerous establishments in the area, Victory Carmona is situated at a place that makes it easy to engage and invite people to the church.

Let us continue to pray for open doors and open hearts, so that more disciples and leaders will be raised for God’s glory. Together, let us intercede for this new church plant’s leadership team, volunteers and staff as they continue to advance God’s kingdom in this part of the Philippines.

Victory Las Piñas to begin regular weekly services in July

Victory Las Piñas to begin regular weekly services in July

We are excited to let you all know that Victory Las Piñas will begin its regular weekly worship services, starting on July 3, 2016!

Last June 5, we held our first worship services at SM Southmall, located along the main thoroughfare of Alabang-Zapote. Two services at 9am and 11am welcomed hundreds of residents from villages and subdivisions in the area, as well as students and workers from nearby universities and offices.

Pastor Sonny and his team started scouting for a venue last year. After several months, God provided a venue in SM Southmall. Victory Las Piñas’s grand launch on July 3, Sunday, will be held at Cinema 6 on the third level of the mall. This Metro Manila location will hold worship services at 9AM and 11AM.

As Victory Las Piñas heeds the call to honor God and make disciples in the South, let us intercede and believe God for open doors to families, campuses and business establishments, so we can witness more Filipinos in this city come to the saving knowledge of Jesus.

Reaching the Nation Together, One City at a Time!

Reaching the Nation Together, One City at a Time!

On July 29, 186 pastors and leaders from Victory churches from all over the Philippines gathered at the Every Nation building for a time of equipping and fellowship at the National Church Planting Summit.

Our provincial pastors, leaders, and church planters are preparing for seven church plants by the end of this year. Since January, we have launched new church plants in Alaminos, Pangasinan; Silay, Negros; Puerto Princesa, Palawan; and Plaridel, Bulacan. We are in faith for the seven upcoming church plants to be launched in the following provinces:

  • Aklan
  • Batangas
  • Bukidnon
  • Camarines Sur

  • La Union
  • Nueva Ecija

 

Please stand with us in prayer! We are excited for local disciples to be raised in these areas, who will then disciple their families, friends, colleagues, and campuses!

Invite your family and friends at a Victory center nearest you! We are currently in fifteen congregations in Metro Manila, and sixty-four churches across the Philippines.

Welcome, Victory Silay!

Welcome, Victory Silay!

We have launched a new church in beautiful Silay City in Negros Occidental!

“Silay is a cultural hub,” says Victory Silay lead pastor Jason Ferrer. “It is one of only two museum cities in the Philippines. We plan to disciple and train leaders while maintaining respect to what they so value, which is culture.”

When it comes to honoring God and making disciples, it helps to think big because we serve a big God. According to Pastor Jason, “We believe Silay will serve as the gateway to planting more churches in the northern part of the province.”

Leaders from Victory Silay apply lessons they’ve learned in Making Disciples class

“We hope to start a second service on Sundays by June 2015,” he adds. “We’re also looking to establish a presence in bigger campuses like the Silay Institute and Sta. Teresita Academy. In five years, we hope to birth churches in Victorias City and Cadiz City.”

Victory Silay holds its Sunday services at 4 PM at the second floor of the Baldevia Building, Zamora Street corner Gamboa Street, Silay City, Negros Occidental. Weekly prayer meetings are scheduled on Thursdays at 6:30 PM and youth services take place on Saturdays at 3 PM.

We are excited for Victory Silay! Please pray with us for opportunities to reach out to families, businesses, and campuses in the city they call “The Paris of Negros.”

See you at the Baldevia Building every Sunday, at 4 PM! Invite your family and friends to join us, too!

Welcome, Victory Laoag-Centro!

Join us in welcoming Victory Laoag-Centro, our second Victory church in Laoag, Ilocos Norte!

Our newest church plant in Northern Luzon was launched with over 400 people in attendance. Victory Laoag and our other Northern Luzon churches helped plant this fresh church plant in the capital city of Ilocos Norte.

Victory Laoag-Centro is located right in the heart of Laoag, surrounded by different business establishments, shopping malls, and department stores.


Twenty-six Victory groups meet in different venues across the city, including the Ilocos Norte National High School and Ilocos Norte College of Arts and Trade. Please pray with us for more businessmen, professionals, and families to be reached out.

Aside from the Ilocos Norte National High School, the church is also in close proximity to four other campuses in the area: Mariano Marcos State University, the Holy Spirit Academy of Laoag, the Divine Word College of Laoag, and AMA Computer College. We are in faith that more and more students will be reached for Jesus, and make a difference in their campuses!

Victory in the Christmas City

July 1 marked the official launch of Victory City of San Fernando, our second Victory church in Pampanga. The capital city of Pampanga is known as the “Christmas Capital of the Philippines” because of its large and colorful giant lanterns. Surely, we have many reasons to celebrate!

Victory City of San Fernando Victory groups
Victory City of San Fernando met in different locations before finally settling in their current location.

Plans for this church plant in the heart of Central Luzon began in 2007. Different church members from Victory Angeles had already been praying for a new church plant in Pampanga. Little did they know that their prayers—made in the very venue that would one day be the site of their church—would bear fruit years later. “God showed His faithfulness by answering their prayers through the church plant,” Jerome Gutierrez, Victory City of San Fernando’s lead pastor, recounts.

What started with four Victory group leaders less than a year ago grew to 230 members being active in discipleship and volunteer ministries. “We never missed a Sunday na walang first timer,” Dolly Yambing, one of Victory City of San Fernando’s ushering ministry volunteers, shares. “At least eight to ten new people would walk in (the service).” None of them were invited by anybody already attending.

As a result, more and more Kapampangans were introduced to Jesus and shared the gospel in their respective communities.

Our Victory churches in Bulacan, as well as in neighboring Angeles and Olongapo, helped establish Victory City of San Fernando. Volunteers from Victory Fort Bonifacio and Victory Pioneer also pitched in.

“(I’m amazed at the) joint efforts of the Victory family,” Bing Tajon, one of Victory City of San Fernando’s leaders, shares. “Everyone collaborated and gave their time, resources, and effort to help us.”

Victory City of San Fernando Family Fun Day
This church plant held activities like Family Fun Day to help build relationships with each other.

Victory City of San Fernando is setting its sights on planting churches in nearby municipalities namely, Apalit, Arayat, Lubao, and Mabalacat. Pray with us for more opportunities to reach the families, campuses, business establishments, and government institutions in the City of San Fernando. We look forward to a great harvest in this city church in Pampanga!

If you have family or friends who live in the vicinity, be sure to invite them to Victory City of San Fernando! Check out our directory for more details.

Parangalan taya ing Dios at magdisipulo tamu king siyudad ning San Fernando! (Let’s honor God and make disciples in the City of San Fernando!)

Kablaaw Para iti Victory Cauayan!

Kablaaw Para iti Victory Cauayan!

On Sunday, December 11, 2011, we’re officially launching our newest Victory church in Northern Luzon: Victory Cauayan!

Cauayan City, located right in the heart of the province, is considered the Agro-Industrial Capital of Cagayan Valley. It is also a bustling city, being the commercial center of Isabela. “It is a great privilege to be called by God to work in this harvest field and have it as our inheritance,” Pastor Jay Medrano, lead pastor of Victory Cauayan, shares.

High school students meet up for Victory groups

Victory Cauayan is our second Victory location in the Isabela region. Victory Santiago and Victory Tuguegarao helped establish this fresh church plant. Services were first held in July 2010 at the Amity Hotel in Cauayan City.

Currently, thirteen Victory groups meet in different venues, most of which are in the campuses. In fact, there have been great opportunities to share the gospel to the students and staff of the University of Perpetual Help System-Isabela.

A number of instructors and school officials are also part of Victory. One of them, Joy Aldeosa, was discipled when she was in her second year at Our Lady of the Pillar’s College. Now, she’s a college instructor, and is taking an active role in reaching her students and co-teachers. She’s started doing ONE 2 ONE with her students and plugging them in Victory groups.

Looking forward to ONE 2 ONE!

We’re excited for more students, families, and businesspeople to be discipled in this city! Pray with us for growth not just in numbers, but in the lives of the people we’re reaching. Pray also for more leaders to help equip and establish spiritual foundations in the locals.

Join us on Sunday, December 11, as we launch Victory Cauayan! See you at the fourth floor of OH Commercial Building, Cabatuan Road, Cauayan City. It’s located across Dr. Ester Garcia Hospital. Our opening service starts at 3 PM. Invite your family and friends to celebrate with us!

Kablaaw para iti Victory Cauayan! Maragsakan kami iti baru nga kapamilya ken simbaan dita Isabela. Dios iti agngina! (Congratulations, Victory Cauayan! We are glad to have a new member of our spiritual family in Isabela. God bless!)

Victory is one church in multiple locations in Metro Manila. We’re also located in various provinces across the Philippines. See you at our services!

Victory Tagum and the Siopao

Victory Tagum and the Siopao

Who would have thought that siopao can be instrumental in the saving of many lives?


Pastor Manny Mintal (center) during one of the siopao outreaches

Ask Pastor Manny Mintal, the senior pastor of our Victory Tagum church plant. Through the power of God and His Word—plus Pastor Manny’s delicious home-cooked siopao—the team of church planters were able to connect with several students in Tagum, Davao, and eventually led them to having a relationship with God.

What started as an outreach project in July 2010 gave birth to a fruitful church plant right in the capital province of Davao del Norte. From outreach activities in nearby parks and “siopao outreaches” in the campuses, the growing church began to meet over merienda in carinderias until they eventually settled in their current Victory center.

Some of the students Victory Tagum has reached out to

On October 2011, Victory Tagum experienced a milestone, with their formal launch happening at the Town Country Plaza in Sobrecarey Street, Tagum, Davao.

Currently, several Victory groups are meeting in various venues in Tagum. More and more are going through ONE 2 ONE, while several others have already gone through Victory Weekend. Among the campuses in their vicinity, Victory Tagum is focusing its efforts on the University of Mindanao and the Magugpo Pilot Imelda Elementary School.

Indeed, greater things are up ahead for Victory Tagum! Join us as we pray for the campuses within their area and for more open doors to share the Word of God. Let’s also cover Victory Tagum in prayer, for growth and maturity of the church and of the current Victory groups.

Victory Tagum is one among a group of Victory churches in the Philippines. It holds a weekly Sunday service at 10AM at the Town Country Plaza, Sobrecarey corner Pioneer Street. If you know anyone in the area, don’t forget to let them know about our newest church in Tagum!
