Nearness

Nearness

Regardless of how long we have been walking with God, the uncertainties we face and of the future would often make us feel unprepared and lost. Our struggles and difficulties can truly be overwhelming, and even Jesus Himself warned us about these troubles. The good news is that God did not end there. 

As we look at the book of Isaiah once again, we can get a closer look into these characteristics of God: unchanging, powerful, and faithful. No matter how deep we go into the holes our challenges have dug us into, we will never be too far from His sight and reach. He is a God that can be trusted because He is near, and His word never fails.

For the next six weeks, we will continue our book study on Isaiah. The first part of our series in March, Trust Worthy, focused on how God keeps His covenant with us, His people. Our new series, Nearness, will help us navigate how we can choose to have a hope-filled response toward the promises and faithfulness of God. 

Join us as we learn more about these topics in the next six weeks:

  • Week 7: Comfort (October 10)
  • Week 8: Courage (October 17)
  • Week 9: Draw Near To God (October 24)
  • Week 10: Restoration(October 31) 
  • Week 11: Righteousness (November 7)
  • Week 12: Victory (November 14) 

We hope that through this series we will get to know God more. As we put our trust in Him and His word, let’s build on our unshakeable foundation and continue to walk confidently with Him.

Light for the Nations

Light for the Nations

The world we live in is troubled and broken. Everywhere we look, we see lack, unrest, uncertainty. Our world is in desperate need of light.

Yet despite what we see and experience all around us, we can have hope and move in faith because God promised to send a Savior—the Light for the nations—who will redeem the world from darkness. 

For the next two weeks, we will be looking at the promise God made, spoken through the prophet Isaiah, about how He will restore all nations and how we can participate in what He is doing. Join us as we learn more about these topics for our upcoming series:

  • Week 1: The Servant Who Brings Light to the World (September 26)
  • Week 2: The Herald Who Proclaims Good News (October 3)

Let’s continue to shine God’s light to the nations!

Future Hope

Future Hope

What we know about our future directly affects how we live today. So if we know that Christ will come again, how should we live? Paul addressed this same question in his letter to the Thessalonians. In light of the coming of Christ, he urged them to live according to the word of God, to live in community and harmony with others, to persevere in spite of trials, and to please God in everything. 

Our present circumstances may lead us to lose our hope. But because we know that we have Christ and that He will one day come in glory, we live with hope for our future and have confidence in Him. 

For the next five weeks, let’s learn about how we can live with confidence and hope, reflecting His love to the world in light of Christ’s coming. Join us as we learn more about these topics for our upcoming series:

  • Week 1: Faith in View of Christ’s Coming (August 15)
  • Week 2: Serving in View of Christ’s Coming (August 22)
  • Week 3: Suffering in View of Christ’s Coming (August 29)
  • Week 4: Living for God’s Pleasure in View of Christ’s Coming (September 5)
  • Week 5: Church in View of Christ’s Coming (September 12)

May we spread the hope that we have in Christ and help others know that there is something to live for!

Generation WE

Generation WE

God is a multigenerational God. We see this in Scripture where generations of families work together, pursue the glory of God together, and carry the mission of God together.

We are all called to be children of God. There is no better generation, but we all received God’s grace and strength to be renewed each day and to preach the gospel wherever we may be, to whomever is around us.

It takes all generations—previous generations, Gen X, Gen Y, Gen Z, and future generations—working together to pursue the mission of God to see campuses, communities, and nations transformed by the gospel. Young people can find and receive strength from God, and the whole church community will be there to support, encourage, and help them fulfill their God-given mission.

For the next two weeks, let’s learn more about how each generation can work together, learn from one another, share lives together, and empower each other to see God’s glory throughout the earth. Join us as we learn more about these topics for our upcoming series:

  • Week 1: Finding Strength in God (July 4)
  • Week 2: Fatherly Encouragement to Continue (July 11)

Let’s continue with our God-given mission to change the campus and change the world!

The Ability to Produce Wealth Series

The Ability to Produce Wealth Series

In life, we sometimes experience being in plenty, and sometimes we experience being in lack. But in every season, we are called to remember that God is our ultimate Provider and He is faithful to fulfill His promises to us. 

This weekend, we will have a new series entitled The Ability to Produce Wealth, where we will talk about God’s promise to provide for His people. This is a powerful truth we’ll look into as we dive into the book of Deuteronomy. Let’s hold on to the truth that God is faithful to His promises to us and He does it by giving us the power to make wealth, so that we can be a blessing to those around us in our communities and nations.

For the next four weeks, let’s learn more deeply about God’s promise of provision, how our attitude towards finances reflects our heart before God, and how His provision is a tool for God’s kingdom and purposes. Join us as we learn more about these topics for our upcoming series:

  • Week 1: A Charge to Obey (July 4)  
  • Week 2: A Charge to Remember (July 11)
  • Week 3: A Charge to Trust (July 18)
  • Week 4: A Charge to Stay on Mission (July 25)

Come and walk with us as we head on to a journey with a desire to grow in faithfulness and fruitfulness, especially in the area of our finances, so we can have a deeper and more meaningful understanding of our relationship with God.

Life Together

Life Together

Relationships are important. God created us to be in relationships, and He works in our lives through them. Our relationships at home, at work, and with our communities are far from perfect. But God, in His divine wisdom, provided a blueprint in how we are to relate with others: in submission and reverence to Christ (Ephesians 5:21).

Despite the physical distance, we can still build strong relationships with those around us. And this is possible through our relationship with Christ, which affects the way we treat and relate with others. Because of Christ, we can experience lasting, thriving, and fulfilling relationships, where we do and share life together.

For the next three weeks, we will be looking at Paul’s letter to the Ephesians to know how our relationship with Christ helps us relate with others the way God intended. Join us as we learn more about these topics for our upcoming series:

  • Week 1: Husband and Wife (June 13)
  • Week 2: Parents and Children (June 20)
  • Week 3: Employer and Employees (June 27)

Let us continue to pray and fight for our relationships, and spur one another to grow in our relationship with Christ and with each other!

Trust Worthy

Trust Worthy

Many times, our failures and faults make us feel unworthy to draw near to God. But here’s the truth: We have a God who never gives up on us. He pursues us despite all our shortcomings. He is faithful even when we are not. In fact, He wants us to come to Him with all of our brokenness and failures, so He can redeem and renew us. And He invites us to know Him more and live differently.

The world may be filled with uncertainty and human systems may fail, but we can trust God because He is unchanging and steadfast, holy and just, loving and all-powerful. He fulfills His promises no matter what. When all else fails, our God is trustworthy.

For the next six weeks, we’ll discover more about God and our relationship with Him in our worship services this week. Join us as we learn more about these topics for our upcoming series:

  • Week 1: God’s Faithfulness (April 25)
  • Week 2: God’s Salvation (May 2)
  • Week 3: God’s Passion (May 9)
  • Week 4: God’s Holiness (May 16) 
  • Week 5: God’s Spirit (May 23)
  • Week 6: God’s Remnant (May 30)

We hope that this series will help us know God more and trust in Him and His word, so we can live with confidence in His promises and live in obedience to Him.

Holy Week Devotional 2021

Holy Week Devotional 2021

As Filipinos, celebrating the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ every year is culturally ingrained in us. Holy Week has become a tradition for most, if not all, of us as it affects what we eat, how we act, and what we say for about a week or so. Even though most of us know the why in our minds, we tend to miss upholding the why in our hearts. 

From March 28 to April 4, let us reflect on and dive deep into the passion of Jesus Christ, the reason for our salvation, and see what it means for us today. The monumental event that happened more than 2,000 years ago is not just a historical fact; it can and will change the way we live and bring us back to our original purpose in God. More than a time to mourn or reflect, we can celebrate because we know that through Jesus’ sacrifice, we can experience His love, healing, glory, and victory in our lives.

We have provided devotional materials for you to use as you observe the Holy Week in your homes safely. You may download them here:

We hope and pray that as we reflect on the finished work of Christ and His mission for us, we can be salt and light to others and bring God’s kingdom here on earth as it is in heaven.

Salt & Light

Salt & Light

Pain, troubles, and suffering are part of life. And often, we can be consumed by these difficulties we face. However, God’s word shows us a different way: Jesus heals us, restores us, and gives us the power to overcome our difficulties. But it doesn’t stop with us. We can help others do the same. We are the salt and light that can reach out to others and extend the love and power God has given to us (Matthew 5:13–16).

Now that we are God’s people, our understanding of our realities stems from the truth of His word and a desire to advance His kingdom. His word allows us to apply His truths, helps us respond in faith, and causes us to actively take part in discipling a nation.

For the next six weeks, we will talk about God’s restoration plan for the world through the book of Isaiah. Join us as we learn more about these topics for our upcoming series:

  • Week 1: God versus False Religion (March 14)
  • Week 2: God versus Oppressors (March 21)
  • Week 3: Jesus, The Righteous King (March 28)
  • Week 4: Jesus, The Suffering Servant (April 4) 
  • Week 5: God’s Righteous People (April 11)
  • Week 6: God’s Plan of Renewal (April 18)

We hope that this series will help us continue to be the salt and light, actively reaching people and taking part in what God is doing to restore the world to Himself.

Joy Full

Joy Full

We tend to hinge our emotions on our present realities and circumstances. The reality is there will always be trouble and hardships that will shake us every now and then. But we don’t have to worry or fret; we can rejoice because we have joy that does not depend on our present reality and we have all we need and more in Christ! 

In the next four weeks, we will be studying Paul’s letter to the Philippians, which he wrote while he was in prison! Despite the trials and difficulties he faced, he was able to endure and come to this conclusion: No amount of difficulty can ever steal the fullness of joy we have in Christ.

Join us as we learn more about these topics for our upcoming series:

  • Week 1: Joy in Suffering (February 7)
  • Week 2: Joy in Relationships (February 14)
  • Week 3: Joy in Pursuing Christ (February 21)
  • Week 4: Joy in All Circumstances (February 28)

We hope that this series will help us learn to find contentment, hope, and joy in Christ in spite of our circumstances and share this fullness of joy to those around us!

Awesome God

Awesome God

The year 2020 was far from ordinary. We began the year by focusing and reflecting on the amazing grace of God, and we had no idea how much we would need it! God’s grace has brought us through some of the toughest challenges of life as a church and as individuals. Because of this, we can welcome each day and this new year with gratitude for everything God has done for, in, and through us. 

This year, we will grow in our understanding of God’s goodness and greatness. We want to talk about our Awesome God because God is awesome! Our fitting response to the awesomeness of God is two-fold: we will fear God and we will grow in our love for Him. 

Here are the topics for our sermon series:

  • Week 1: God’s Self-Existence (January 3)
  • Week 2: God’s Peace (January 10)
  • Week 3: God’s Compassion (January 17)
  • Week 4: God’s Redemption (January 24)
  • Week 5: God’s Mission (January 31)

We hope you can join us in our time of prayer, fasting, and consecration from January 11 to 15. Visit https://victory.org.ph/fasting2021/ to download our devotionals, join our prayer meetings, and share your story about our Awesome God.

Our hope is that this series and consecration week will help us see not only the greatness of God but also His goodness, and that we will be able to hold on to these in a new way.
