Disciples Making Disciples!
We are convinced that every believer is called to be a disciple, and as described in Matthew 28:18-20 and 4:19, a disciple is someone who follows Jesus, reaches unbelievers with the Gospel and does these activities in community with other believers.
In support of this process, the pastors and leadership of Victory Christian Center shall not allow practices that are controlling, coercive or intrusive, or that violate Biblical principles, the priesthood of the believer and the disciple-making principles enumerated:
What is Discipleship?
Victory Christian Center often speaks of “making disciples,” and “discipleship” is one of our core values. When we speak of “being a disciple” and “making disciples,” it means we are called to follow Jesus and to help others follow Jesus.
The Scripture reference for this is Matthew 4:19, Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” (New King James Version)
What is Lordship?
One of our core values is “Lordship.” However, we do not teach what is commonly called “lordship salvation” (i.e., we do not believe that a person has to come under perfect submission to Christ in every area of life to get saved and to stay saved.)
Christ saved us and made us perfect in God’s eyes at the moment we appealed to Him for forgiveness. Lordship is our proclamation that Jesus Christ is now the center of our lives (1 Corinthians 3:11) and we will make every effort to obey His Word and follow His will as laid out in the Bible.
