Victory with Paul Daugherty
We believe God loves you passionately, unconditionally and relentlessly. My wife Ashley and I serve as Lead Pastors of Victory in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Along with our three boys, Liam, Benaiah and Mac, our mission is to love God and love people. We’re passionate about empowering you to step out and fulfill God’s purpose for your life. No matter what you’re facing today, I believe your best days are right in front of you, and you can have victory in your life because Jesus lives in you.
We’ve all had tough times, but the good news is – you’re going to make it! I experienced this firsthand almost 10 years ago, when my dad, my hero, my pastor- passed away unexpectedly. He built a big church and left some pretty large shoes to fill. I felt hopeless and purposeless – but God showed up and restored my faith! He gave me a message to share with you.
A message of faith, hope and restoration. I pray you find the messages and resources here will encourage you to greater faith and steadfast confidence that God has an amazing plan for your life.
Almost 10 years ago, my dad, my hero, and my pastor passed away unexpectedly. He built a big church and left some pretty large shoes to fill. When he died, I didn’t just lose my dad, I lost my faith. I lost my purpose and my future.
But God showed up and restored my faith! And He gave me a message to share with you.
You are here on purpose. God’s not finished with you yet. Your best days are right in front of you, and you have Victory in your life, because Jesus lives in you.
I pray our messages and resources encourage you to greater faith and steadfast confidence that God has an amazing plan for your life.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
The Bible is the inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God. ‑ 2 Timothy 3:16‑17
Mankind was created in the image of God, but as a result of sin is lost and powerless to save himself. ‑ Genesis 1:26, Romans 6:23
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His future personal return in power and glory. – 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; 1 Peter 2:18-24; John 3:16
The Holy Spirit
We believe the Holy Spirit indwells all believers, and through the Baptism with the Holy Spirit, believers are empowered and gifted for Christian service. The gifts of the Spirit are active and necessary for today. – 1 Corinthians 12
Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement and is the privilege of all believers. – Isaiah 53:4, Matthew 8:16-17, Mark 16:18, John 5:6-14, 1 Peter 2:24
Second Coming of Christ
We believe in the imminent and personal return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. – 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, Revelation 22:20, John 14:3
There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. ‑ 1 John 5:6‑8
The only hope for man is to believe on Jesus Christ, the virgin-born Son of God, fully God and fully man. Through faith in Christ’s life, death and resurrection, mankind is redeemed. ‑ Romans 10:9‑10,13; John 3:16, Ephesians 2:1‑10
Salvation is by grace through faith alone. No amount of good works will produce justification before God. We believe that the manifestation of grace and faith is a holy life expressed through righteous works. – Romans 3:21-30; Galatians. 4:4-7; Ephesians 2:8-10/p>
Eternal life in heaven is the reward of all who believe and receive Christ as their Lord. According to the Scriptures, “For God so loved the world that He sent His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life” | John 3:16) “But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars – their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death”. – Revelation 21:8
Health – Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement and is the privilege of all believers. – Isaiah 53:4, Matthew 8:16-17, Mark 16:18, John 5:6-14, 1 Peter 2:24
The Church is the Body of Christ, both universal and local, and is composed of individuals who, through faith in Jesus Christ, have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit. We believe that Christ Jesus is the Head and Lord of the Church. The mission of the Church is worship, evangelism, discipleship and the nurturing and care of one another. – Matthew 28:18-20; Colossians 1:18; Ephesians 2:19-22
