Vision

"And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it." Habakkuk 2:2

If we have no direction or no vision, the bible says the people perish.

"Where there is no wisdom, the people perish; but he who keeps the law, he is blessed." Proverbs 29:18

God has placed Pastors Douglas & Erica Goodman as the Pastors over Victory-to-Victory Church and the vision that God has given to them for this area or part of the Body of Christ is to fulfil the plans of God concerning His Kingdom, to fulfil the will of God and to establish God’s Kingdom on the earth.

Our Emphasis:

We are committed to the new anointing that God is pouring out upon the earth, we move in the apostolic and prophetic dimensions, concentrating on evangelism and healing for the whole man. We value New Testament order; five fold ministry and every member involvement.

We appreciate that you have been sent here by God to help us to fulfil, strengthen and complement these truths.

"Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious ointment on the head that ran down on the beard, Aaron's beard, that went down to the mouth of his garments; like the dew of Hermon that came down on the mountains of Zion; for there the LORD commanded the blessing, life forevermore."  Psalm 133

Unity is a very important and valuable aspect of this ministry, according to Proverbs 6:19 it is an abomination for anyone to sow discord among the brethren.

"Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation. And every city or house divided against itself shall not stand."  Matthew 12:25

We are here ultimately:

  • To minister to God’s people through our various roles
  • To establish a unified team of the same singular vision
  • Commit to prayer meetings at least fortnightly
  • Maintaining a spirit of humility, honesty and integrity

We further share the vision with you for Victory-to-Victory and all the various ministries with it. It is for us corporately and individually to reach out to touch and transform the lives of men and women, Christian and non-Christian alike of every colour, culture and nationality through the love of Christ.

Victory-to-Victory is committed to restoring people to a place of wholeness by building up and restoring them, restoring confidence, renewing strength and reclaiming joy through the Word of God. Practical teaching and empowerment essential to the total person will accomplish this. It is our aim to break the illusion of failure, fear and defeat by illuminating God’s true promise through His Word.

There is a world of hurting people, devoid of the love of God, who are simply waiting for someone to lead them to the loving arms of Jesus, which Victory-to-Victory Community Church is committed to doing.
