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.

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.

Following health and safety protocols, we have resumed some worship services onsite while continuing to meet online. You may join us by checking the schedules here or your Victory location’s Facebook page.

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. 

Following health and safety protocols, we have resumed some worship services onsite while continuing to meet online. You may join us by checking schedules here.

In Time

In Time

In spite of everything we have been through in 2020, we are looking forward to celebrating the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ again. Our Christmas celebrations in our homes and churches are different and many of us are longing for better days in time. But in all this we have hope, because the Savior of the world came in time for us, bringing light and life to His people.

Join us in the next three weeks as we look at the coming of Jesus through the gospel of John. More than a baby in a manger, Jesus is Lord—Creator and pre-eminent—and the source of all life and light for us in these troubled times. Here is the schedule of our Christmas series:

  • Week 1: Jesus, the Logos (December 6)
  • Week 2: Jesus, the Life (December 13)
  • Week 3: Jesus, the Light (December 20)

Following health and safety protocols, we have resumed some worship services onsite while continuing to meet online. You may join us by checking schedules here.

May we be a witness of Christ’s light and love to our families and communities this Christmas, in order that all may believe. See you at any of our services!

Add to Heart

Add to Heart

Even in the midst of a pandemic, we can trust God for provision and, in turn, give to honor Him. Giving is a matter of the heart. We give not because we have to, but because of God’s graciousness and faithfulness to us. This is our worship unto God. Like adding things to our cart, we have a choice about what we add to our hearts.

Join us in the next three weeks as we look at biblical attitudes when it comes to giving our tithes unto the Lord through different passages and stories in the Bible. Here is the schedule of our new series:

  • Week 1: The Only Person of Our Worship (November 15)
  • Week 2: The Main Purpose of Our Wealth (November 22)
  • Week 3: The True Proof of Our Offering (November 29)

We pray that this series will encourage you to continue to trust God and honor Him through your giving.

The Gospel Expressed

The Gospel Expressed

Since earlier this year, we have wanted to grow in our understanding of the gospel and develop a greater love for God’s word. That’s why we embarked on a twenty-two-week series on the book of Romans. In the first part of the series, we focused on The Gospel Explained, highlighting the power of the gospel and the greatness of the mercy of God toward His people. We also talked about The Mission Continues, focusing on the power and fulfillment of the gospel in the lives of individuals and nations.

For the next five weeks, we will be looking at how we can respond in view of God’s mercy. In the last five chapters of his letter to the Romans, Paul outlined how we can live out the gospel by serving and loving others, submitting to authority, and being united as a Church.

Here is the schedule of our series:

  • Week 18: Gifts of Grace (October 10)
  • Week 19: Love in Action (October 17)
  • Week 20: Christian Duties (October 24)
  • Week 21: Welcome Others (October 31)
  • Week 22: Unity of the Gospel (November 7)

Due to the restrictions on gatherings, our worship services are temporarily online. You can join one of our online services on this list.

We pray that this series will encourage you to seek God and grow in Christlikeness. Let us continue to honor God and make disciples wherever we may be!

The Mission Continues

The Mission Continues

Our calling and mission as a church has always been to honor God and make disciples in every campus and every nation. Even with the recent pandemic and restrictions on movement worldwide, we make God’s mission for us a priority. While the world may have seemingly stopped, the mission continues.

Join us in the next two weeks as we discover the power of the gospel to transform not just individuals but also nations. As we study the book of Romans, our prayer is that like Paul, we will seek to preach the gospel where Christ is not yet known.

Here is the schedule of our new series:

  • Week 1: The Gospel’s Power (September 27)
  • Week 2: The Gospel’s Fulfillment (October 4)

We pray that this series will encourage you to participate in what God is doing in the nations by praying, giving, and going. Together, let us bring the gospel to every nation!

Generationship

Generationship

As a church, we are called to reach the next generation—aka the future leaders of our society. This is why we value building relationships with them and setting them up for success. For the next two weeks, we will be looking at the lives of Saul and David, and how they viewed the next generation. While Saul disobeyed God, did not submit to His plans, and pursued his own interests, David served God’s purposes in his own generation (Acts 13:36) and paved the way for the next generations to succeed.

In studying their lives, we hope that we will intentionally set up the next generation to succeed in God’s purpose for their lives.

Here is the schedule of our new series:

  • Week 1: Saul and Jonathan (August 30)
  • Week 2: David and Solomon (September 6)

We pray that this series will encourage you to see our future with hope as we continue to make disciples and equip the next generation for God’s purposes in their lives!

A Father’s Heart

A Father’s Heart

This weekend, we will honor the role of fathers and recognize their influence in our homes and society.

A Father’s Heart is a preaching message for Father’s Day based on Psalm 128. As we study this psalm, we hope that we will have a deeper understanding of God as our Father and be encouraged to walk in obedience to Him.

As we celebrate this Sunday, let us worship God, our Heavenly Father, and ask Him to show us how we can honor the fathers in our lives today.

See you at our online worship services this weekend!

Beauty in Strength

Beauty in Strength

As we celebrate Mother’s Day this weekend, we want to commemorate and honor the role of mothers and recognize their godly influence in our homes and society.

In the Bible, a mother named Jochebed displayed courage, strength, and immense trust in God in the midst of a challenging time in history. She did not let fear overcome her faith. We will look more into her story this weekend to understand the beauty that God brings through mothers.

May Jochebed and the rest of the mothers inspire us to display beauty in strength as we overcome fear and respond in faith. See you at our online worship services this weekend!

Perspective Series

Perspective Series

As the COVID-19 pandemic sweeps across the world, how do we respond as Christians? From what perspective do we choose to view the things happening around us? Do our hearts mirror the unrest unfolding each day, or do we shift our perspective and look to God amid the crisis?

For three weeks, we will look at Psalm 23 and learn more about God’s promises of provision, protection, and peace. In spite of what’s happening, we can find comfort in God—our Shepherd—who guides us, restores us, and meets all our needs.

Here are the topics for each week:

  • Week 1: Provision
  • Week 2: Peace
  • Week 3: Protection
  • Week 4: Presence

As we walk through dark valleys and battle each day in this pandemic, we have a Shepherd who leads us and quiets our hearts. Let us shift our perspective and focus our eyes on God alone. There are green pastures and still waters ahead of us. Knowing that He is our Shepherd not just secures us, but empowers us to declare who He is so that others can seek Him, too.

Let us look to God and encourage others to find comfort in His promises of provision, protection, and peace. See you at our online worship services!

A New Hope Series

A New Hope Series

In a time of fear, uncertainty, and grief, we can find new hope in Jesus Christ. He is the hope of our salvation and our hope in every situation.

For the first two Sundays, we are looking at the life of Jesus from the Gospel of Luke. Then, on May 31, June 7, and June 14, we are going to learn about the Holy Spirit and how we are empowered to minister. The Holy Spirit enables us to live godly lives, heals our brokenness, and fills us with boldness to proclaim God’s Word.

Here are the topics for this series:

  • Week 1: April 5 (Palm Sunday)
  • Week 2: April 12 (Resurrection Sunday)
  • Week 3: May 31 (Pentecost Sunday)

The Gospel Explained Series

The Gospel Explained Series

Understanding the gospel and how it affects our lives will allow us to have a deeper appreciation of God’s love.

From March 8 to October 18, we will have a series spread over the year about the gospel, as explained in the book of Romans.

The book of Romans was written by the apostle Paul. He wrote it at a time when there was great persecution and conflict between Christians of Jewish origin and Christians who were Gentiles. Through the message of the gospel, Paul hoped to see the two walking in unity with each other.

As we dig deep into God’s word in the next 23 weeks, may we have a clearer understanding and appreciation of God’s love for us. May it also inspire us to walk in unity as we live lives pleasing to God.

Know more about the gospel in our new series! See you at our worship services across the Philippines!

On a Journey Series

On a Journey Series

Discipleship is about following Jesus and going on a journey with Him and other people. It’s about relationships.

In this series, we will look at the life of Jesus, who—throughout His lifetime—exhibited a posture of following God, fishing for people, and walking with others. He is the perfect example of discipleship.

Here are the topics for each week:

  • Week 1: Be One
  • Week 2: Make One
  • Week 3: Walk with One

May this series help us understand discipleship and encourage us to have a growth-filled journey with God and the people around us.

Let’s go on a journey together! See you at our worship services across the Philippines!

Amazing Grace Series

Amazing Grace Series

There is no better way to start the year than to come to God and reflect on His grace. As we look forward to what God will do in and through us this year, let us remember His goodness and grace through our new series, Amazing Grace.

God’s grace affects every area of our lives, including our behavior and our relationship with Him. As we seek God, may we be expectant of the amazing things that He will do in and through us this year.

Hope Has Come Series

Hope Has Come Series

People celebrate Christmas for many reasons. But the reason we can and should celebrate Christmas is the good news that Jesus came. Because He came, we have been redeemed, we were adopted as sons and daughters of God, and we have a sure inheritance.

In our Hope Has Come series, we will look at the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Galatians to appreciate the message of the gospel and the hope that it brings.

Here are the topics for each week:

  • Week 1: Born of Woman
  • Week 2: Bought at a Price
  • Week 3: Belonging to Abba
  • Week 4: Blessed as an Heir

We’re excited to see you at our worship services across the Philippines! You can bring your family and friends to celebrate the season with us.

Imago Dei Series

Imago Dei Series

We are all made in a very unique way—Imago Dei meaning “in the very image and likeness of God.” In this series, we will look at how we were created by God. Though culture tells us that we can define ourselves or we were made a particular way, we will only find our real identity and purpose when we understand God’s image in us.

Here are the topics for each week:

  • Week 1: Imago Dei
  • Week 2: Manhood
  • Week 3: Womanhood

Together, let us understand God’s design and purpose for each one of us. See you at our worship services across the Philippines!

Want More? Series

Want More? Series

The world tells us today to pursue money and to set our hopes in it to be satisfied in life. This is the reason why many people end up wanting more than what they have. In this series, we will look at the Apostle Paul’s teachings about money and see that God is more than enough—He is the true source of contentment, security, and generosity.

Here are the topics for each week:

  • Week 1: How will I know if I love money more than God?
  • Week 2: How will I know if money is the source of my confidence?
  • Week 3: How can I be generous and what will it bring me?

Together, let us discover the answers to these questions. See you at our worship services across the Philippines!
