God’s plan is to bring His kingdom on earth and redeem all of creation. As we celebrate Victory’s 35th anniversary, we will talk about the kingdom of God and the part that our church plays in it—here and now.
Here are the topics for each week:
Week 1: The Parable of the Weeds
Week 2: The Parables of the Mustard Seed and Leaven
Week 3: The Parables of the Hidden Treasure and the Pearl of Great Value
Week 4: The Parable of the Net
At the end of this series, we hope to have a clearer grasp of what the kingdom of God is and be inspired to persevere in our faith together.

Our Central Luzon churches held their first Discipleship Convergence in April 13. Over 750 discipleship group leaders from Bataan, Bulacan, Cabanatuan, Pampanga, Tarlac, and Zambales gathered in Clark, Pampanga, for an event that equipped, empowered, and encouraged them to continue honoring God and making disciples.
Our Victory group leaders were able to see a new perspective of their Discipleship Journey. Brand-new discipleship tools, such as discipleship.ph, were also introduced to our Victory group leaders.
Pastor Steve Murrell shared a message about passing the baton of the gospel, reminding the leaders to act as “funnels” and invite people and lead them through the discipleship process.
Amy Dabu, one of the Victory group leaders from Victory City of San Fernando, cites Pastor Steve’s message as one of her personal takeaways. “(As a leader,) I learned that I have to pass on what I received.”
Amy considered herself “reluctant” when it came to sharing about what Jesus did for her. “I did not want to go to another level of my faith. I was content where I was,” she admits. Little by little, she was reminded of Jesus’s commission to go and make disciples. “Leadership is not about the titles or the perks I receive, but leading them to Christ.” Now, she is ready to go and make disciples in her hometown, armed with a big vision and putting her trust and confidence in God!
Amy’s story is just one of the many others we’ve heard from the conference. As our leaders go back to their workplaces, campuses, and families, we are excited to hear more stories of engaging, establishing, equipping, and empowering others for Jesus!
You can join any one of our eleven Victory churches in the Central Luzon region. If you have family and friends who live there, invite them to a Victory church within the area!
Victory is one church that meets in different locations in Metro Manila, and in other locations across the provinces. For more information on our locations and services, please visit our national directory. See you at our services!
Who would have thought that siopao can be instrumental in the saving of many lives?

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!
Victory as a movement believes that each one of us has a part to play in world missions work. After all, we are called not only to make disciples in our nation, but around the world.
Each year, we’re also given an opportunity to be a blessing to the nations through our Every Nation Recommitment Campaign. Not all of us may be called to minister to different nations, but we can take part in what God is doing in the nations.
We’re already starting missions work in this bustling city in Southeast Asia.
Thank you for partnering with us in reaching every nation and every campus!
For all of us to have a deeper understanding of what reaching the nations is all about, join us this weekend as we start our brand new series, “Crossing Cultures.” We’ll know more about the challenges of crossing cultural barriers, and have a greater appreciation for what God is doing through missions efforts in different nations.
See you at our services! Victory meets at one church in fifteen locations in Metro Manila and sixty provincial churches all over the nation. To know how you can participate in our Every Nation recommitment, please contact your local church.
Our Cavite churches are growing in numbers! After Victory Trece Martires, join us on Sunday, September 25, as we welcome another Victory church in the province of Cavite: Victory Molino!
Small beginnings Efforts for Victory Molino began in 2007, when a church planting team from Victory Bacoor was sent to engage with the locals in this mostly residential area. Since then, thirty-four Victory groups now meet in different houses in this municipality, all inviting their family members and friends to take part in having a relationship with Jesus.
Their services are currently being held in the Masaito Building, right in the heart of the city. Just nearby are two campuses: Perpetual College and the State Fields High School.
Going beyond the expected While their members were raising funds for Victory Molino’s center, their story of generosity was encouraging. “People gave more than enough,” Pastor Noel Bibat recounts. As a result, they were able to exceed their financial goal. “God used people to help give (to our facility). Truly, as we step out in faith, God’s provision comes!”
Pastor Noel also excitedly shared how their church plant grew to 200 members in two months, with their facility holding two services every Sunday at the Masaito Building along Molino Road.
Join us on Sunday, September 25, as we celebrate the official launch of Victory Molino! Invite your family and friends, too!
Join us on Sunday, September 18 at 10 AM as we officially launch our newest church plant in southern Metro Manila: Victory Muntinlupa!
Efforts in reaching this city first started in October 2009, when monthly services were being held at the Peoples’ Center, Muntinlupa Municipal Hall. They met weekly shortly after. From 150 to 200 people, they now have 470 men and women regularly attending their two Sunday services.
From there, forty-five Victory Groups are now meeting, and more people are being discipled. In fact, they held their first Victory Weekend last March, preparing others to live a life of freedom and victory.
More families are now attending their services. According to Pastor Jun Divierte, “One member (has been) praying for the longest time that her family will worship with her every Sunday. Her whole family is now attending Victory Muntinlupa (with her).” Not only that, but they are also being plugged into Victory Groups. “(A mother I got to talk to) is glad to see that her children are now actively involved in church activities and Victory Groups.”
Victory Muntinlupa is also reaching out a number of campuses in the area, including Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Muntinlupa, Pedro E. Diaz High School, and Muntinlupa Science High School.
We are excited to see more families, students, and single professionals in Muntinlupa have a relationship with God and live changed lives!
Pray with us for opportunities to share the gospel with Muntinlupa government officials and business people as we continue to honor God and make disciples in this city.
People started meeting in Victory groups in June 2010 in various locations in Trece Martires, the capital city of Cavite. More than forty men and women are now going through ONE 2 ONE and being trained to make disciples.
Our local churches in Cavite (Bacoor, Dasmariñas, and Imus) have collaborated to reach this area. In fact, the church planting team has made efforts to reach different age groups. Just last May, they set up a medical mission to help the citizens of Trece Martires.
Victory Trece Martires will be holding their services inside the Colegio de Amore campus, home to elementary, high school, and college-level students. The leadership team is also targeting other schools such as the Cavite State University, Trece Martires City Colleges, and Lyceum of the Philippines.
Pray with us as we reach out to the heart of Cavite! Ask God for more families, students, and young professionals would come to have a relationship with Jesus. Pray also that this fresh church plant would not just grow in numbers, but in their relationship with God as well.
See you at Colegio de Amore this Sunday, September 11, at 10 AM! Bring your family and friends to join us, too!
Bigyan natin ng dangal ang Diyos at paramihin ang disipulo Niya sa Trece Martires!
