What to Expect

Weekends at Victory

Most people start by attending one of our weekend services. No need to dress up - our services are designed to be casual, but meaningful. We use a mix of music, drama and media to help engage people. The teaching, whether it’s Pastor Sharon or Pastor Paul or another speaker, is Biblical but also practical and relevant.

For those that consider Victory home, we'd love for you to prayerfully consider giving to Victory during the service, or you can set-up an online giving account here.

Before or after a service, we welcome you to come and say hello at our Welcome Center in the lobby.

Parking for our guests are available on the church campus. As you drive in you will be greeted by some of our amazing volunteers who are there to help you get parked, and into the service. The parking lot can get busy, so please allow for time to get settled.

If you have kids of any age, they can take part in our secure Victory Kids program on the weekends.

Connecting Beyond the Weekend

What you do beyond the weekend service is based on where you are at with your faith and your relationship to God. Here at Victory you’ll hear us talk about a couple ways to get involved: Connect Groups and Volunteering.

We have groups of different shapes and sizes that you can join for a more personal connection. If you want to give back and volunteer, you can check out how to find your passion, and get connected.

There are a lot of choices, and we encourage you to explore. If you want to start at the very beginning, we recommend checking out the foundations videos.

If you have any questions, stop by the Welcome Center during any of our services, or send us an email.


Our History

In 1979, Billy Joe and Sharon Daugherty became pastors at Sheridan Christian Center. Within two short years, Pastor Billy Joe was preaching six times every Sunday to accomodate the rapidly growing church congregation, which bloomed from 300 to 2,000 people. This was merely a sign of things to come.
On Easter Sunday 1981, Pastors Billy Joe and Sharon launched Victory Christian Center, where they were surprised to find 1,600 people at the first service. From a car dealership, to a large tent, to the Mabee Center, and now the Victory Worship Center, Pastor Billy Joe and Sharon stayed true to his vision of reaching the lost.
“The focus has been winning the lost. We’re going after the lost. We believe this is the call of God on the church.” -Pastor Billy Joe Daugherty
Billy Joe and Sharon, and Victory answered that call: the Tulsa Dream Center, Victory Bible Institute, Victory Christian School, Victory Fellowship of Ministries, Camp Victory, the bus ministry, apartment community outreaches, and Mobile Kidz Clubs.

With honor, celebration and yet sadness, the leaders of Victory announced the passing of Pastor Billy Joe Daugherty from this life into the next on November 22, 2009. We are sad to lose the presence of our pastor, shepherd, father, and brother. We are thankful, however, for his life, love, and influence on the individuals and ministries he inspired for the last 30 years.

Probably nothing thrilled Pastor Billy Joe more than finding a new tool to communicate the Gospel. In the months before his passing, Billy Joe launched the innovative TV program, “360 Degree Life”. The ninth chapter of Matthew tells us “the harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.” Billy Joe was one of the “few”. He spent his life in the harvest field, always rallying others to join him.

The world will never be the same because of Billy Joe Daugherty. As with any life given in service to Christ, the effects of his life and legacy of his ministry will continue through his beloved wife Pastor Sharon Daugherty, his children Sarah and Caleb Wehrli, Ruthie and Adam Sanders, John and Charica Daugherty, and Paul and Ashley Daugherty, and his mother Iru Daugherty — and through the thousands who were inspired by him.


 
The Vision

Worship

Our first and greatest command from God is to love Him with all our heart, all our soul, and all our mind (Matthew 22:37-38). Ministry to the Lord comes before ministry to people. The “first love” is for Jesus. Praise is a calling given to every believer.

“This people have I formed for myself, they shall show forth my praise.” Isaiah 43:21(KJV)

 

Prayer

It is up to the church to pray God’s will into the earth. Jesus said:
“I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” Matthew 16:18-19 (KJV)

Jesus has given us the authority to release His will on earth through prayer. We as believers–the church–are to stop the works of the devil through prayer.

 

Fellowship

The church is a community of believers. It is a family–loving together and caring for each other. We are a body with many members (I Corinthians 12:12). Every member of the church needs the other members. God uses each of us to supply something to someone else.

The first believers in Acts Chapter 2 shared their possessions with one another. They ate together, prayed together and worshipped God together.

Teaching

Foundational to all that is done in the church is the Word of God. The apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor and teacher are given by God to train and equip the believers to do the work of the ministry (Ephesians 4:11-12).

The Word of God builds and equips believers to be and do what God desires. The vision of Victory is to constantly nurture believers until they grow into full maturity.

 

Evangelism

“Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” Mark 16:15 (KJV)
The church is called to proclaim good news, heal the sick, deliver the oppressed, and set the captive free (Luke 4:18). We have the answer to the World’s problems and we must share Him. The purpose of the baptism of the Holy Spirit is the power to witness (Acts 1:8). All that we do in worship, prayer, fellowship and teaching is preparation for evangelism. God gave Jesus because He loved the world. His love has not changed; we are to go to the unsaved with this message of God’s love.

You Have a Part

There is a place for you at Victory. Seek God’s will. He will reveal to you the place you can give and receive in this ministry. Growth comes from commitment. Get your roots down into this vision. The greater your commitment and dedication, the greater your growth and progress will be.
