Last Sunday, November 13, we officially welcomed our 78th church plant in the Philippines: Victory Bambang!
Situated in the province of Nueva Vizcaya, Bambang is home to more than 50,000 people and is considered the province’s agricultural center. With many campuses and two major universities in the area, we are expectant of the many great things God will through our new church as they reach out to the next generation. Church planting efforts for Victory Bambang started several years ago after Victory Bayombong was established and the leaders noticed that there were a lot of people attending the worship service from the town of Bambang.
The Bambang church plant attracted people living and working in the community, and it later on grew when these people started inviting their family to church, as well. God continued to bless the church with growth, and soon multi-generation leaders stepped out in faith and created their Victory groups. At present, the church has 22 Victory groups, and we are in faith that these will multiply as more people hear the preaching of God’s word.
Victory Bambang’s grand launch was held at the second floor of the Landbank Building in Barangay Banggot. It was an opportune time to give thanks to God, and to fellowship with other members, including friends from Victory Bayombong. Their worship service will be held regularly every Sunday at 9:00 a.m. KIDS Church will also happen simultaneously at the same venue.So, don’t forget to invite your friends and family to our church in Nueva Vizcaya!
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.
