Our core foundations of this ministry can be summarized in the three V's:

Value - Vigorous - Vision

(Our Core Beliefs)
  • The Trinity: One God, Three persons

    • God the Father, God the Son, & God the Holy Spirit

    • Jesus is the Christ. He was fully God & Man at the same time. He was sinless. He died for our sins. He rose with all power.

  • The Bible: It’s inerrant (with out error), inspired by the Holy Spirit, and incredible.

  • The Church: Is the gathering of believers across all walks of life who seek after righteousness.

  • The Gifts & Miracles: The operation of the Holy Spirit as seen in Romans 12:6-8 and 1 Cor. 12:8-10,28

  • The “5 Fold” Ministry: Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor, and Teacher based in Ephesians 4:11-16.

(Our Core Passion)
  • Deliverance: Setting the captive free from demonic strongholds, strongmen, principalities, powers, and rulers by the power of the Holy Spirit.

  • Outreach: Reaching the lost by going into the highways and byways preaching the Gospel. Reaching the less fortunate by providing tangible resources and support.

  • Prayer: Devoting time to seeking the face of God, and to pursue the things of God.

  • Empowerment: Spiritually empowering people in the Holy Spirit to do all of the above in their homes, families and communities.

(Our Core Goal)
  • To provide two fold solution to remedy the problems our communities are facing:

    • The Spiritual Solution: Preaching the Gospel and making disciples who are spiritually fit and operate in their calling to make more disciples.

After the completion of Apostle Carter Videau's assignment of Mt. Olive Missionary Baptist Church, He and Forty members founded Victory Christian Center (now Victory Church) on an Easter Sunday, April 12, 1998 on a street corner in Hillsboro, AL. A few days later, the congregation would acquire and hold regular services at what was formerly About God's Business Church in Hillsboro, AL. The Church grew exponentially over the next few months and reached up to 200 regular attendees and regular viewers via TV slot in the Tennessee Valley Area.



In 2005, Victory Church moved from Hillsboro, AL to Trinity, AL to a bigger facility to engage the epidemics that plague our communities.

Rehabilitation, Nutrition, Educational efforts were manifested through the resources of Unity Drug Foundation, Grace House, Mary Ruth Food Bank, Foundation of Faith GED Program and Community Cooking (which is currently in operation).


Due to the economic down turn in 2008, Victory Church had to down size and we moved into was known as the Gathering Place (formerly 2nd Missionary Baptist Church) in Hillsboro, AL. With prayer, faith, hard work, and the grace of God, Victory Church has prospered and trail-blazed in it's 20 plus years of service and submission to the call of Christ to take the Gospel to the uttermost parts of the world. Let's continue to reflect the light of Christ to the rest of the world.
