Who we are

Who We Are

Victorious Life Church was established in September of 2001 led by Pastor Charles Fernandez and a tenacious group of people with a vision of reaching across ethnic, social and generational barriers to see people transformed by the grace of Christ. Since then VLC has grown into a vibrant community of faith with one of the most diverse congregations in the area. We are a non-denominational church with a mission to make disciples, reach our city and touch the world.

ScriptureThe Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God. It is relevant to modern society providing the sole authority for Godly living. (I Timothy 3:16)

Return of ChristJesus Christ is coming back again in person to judge the living and dead. At that time, all who have died will be resurrected.

(1 Thessalonians 4:13-17; I Corinthians 15:51-52; 2 Corinthians 5:10; Revelation 20:10-15)

Local ChurchThe local church is the visible expression of the body of Christ—God’s spiritual family. Every member of God’s family is important and is gifted for a unique purpose. As a local church, we all work together to fulfill God’s will in the earth. Romans 12:3-8, I Corinthians 12:14-27, Ephesians 4:11-16)
