Who We Are

Our Vision

Victory World Outreach is a local church that is extending the Kingdom of God around the world through evangelism, discipleship and church planting. Jesus has given us His marching orders in Mark 16:15, “…Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature.” We are aggressive in evangelism (concerts, door-to-door outreach, etc.) and deliberate in discipleship and church planting.
