Victory Church is first and foremost a Bible-based church that seeks to preach the Word in an expository manner, verse by verse, with practical application. We are committed to proclaiming the Gospel of Christ from loving hearts to the lost around us. Our basic beliefs are salvation by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone, Eternal security, the pre tribulation rapture of the saints, the Bible is inspired, the trinity consists of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Jesus is the perfect son of God and the savior of the world, etc. (more in our doctrinal statement) Victory Church is located in Sagle, Idaho, just south of Sandpoint. Our church building is at 602 Gun Club Road. (See the Visit Us page for more details.
What do I wear? We don’t have a dress code and encourage people to come as they are. Whether its blue jeans, a suit, a t-shirt, a tie, shorts, overalls, dress shoes, tennis shoes, boots, sandals, or even barefoot! all are welcome!
What king of music can I expect? you can expect a mixture of traditional hymns sung in a traditional manner as well as the latest in meaningful contemporary worship songs sung in a contemporary manner. All are sung within the same service in 2 different sets.
Our music varies from upbeat to calm and worshipful but never loud enough to require ear plugs! Our worship service is centered on Christ and not a performance for people. Our goal is to glorify the Lord in Psalms, Hymns, and spiritual songs. We utilize acoustic electric guitars, an electric bass guitar, a Cajon drum, violin, piano, mandolin, etc. In other words we use any instrument that an individual is willing to use for worshipping the Lord.
We sing songs written by Chris Tomin, Fanny Crosby, Matthew West, Isaac Watts, King David, Elevation Worship, Maranatha, Rend Collective, Ron Hamilton, Zach Williams, Pat Barret, Philip P. Bliss, John Newton, Hill Song, etc.
What can I expect on my first visit? You can park you car in the front church parking lot and as you enter the building you will be met by a greeter who will give you a connection card to fill out. Before or after the service you can put you card in the offering box connected to the wall by the door you entered. There is a nursery available downstairs for babys and toddlers as well as an open area for older children if needed. We are nearing completion of a large entry way that will also house 2 new large, handicap accessible bathrooms, as well as a coffee bar and places to sit and fellowship.
Are you a family friendly church? YES! We welcome all families large or small. We have a desire to make our church a place where families can worship together and not be separated during every service. We welcome babies and young children in the main worship service. All we ask is that if a baby or child becomes a noise concern that you take them into the foyer where the parent can take care of them and also watch the service on the wall monitor.
We do not pressure married couples in regards to how many children they have. We believe each couple must follow God’s leading for themselves regarding family size.
Are you a legalistic church? NO! We do not have a church rule book or set of required standards. We just want people to love God with all their heart soul and mind and love others as themselves. The Great Commandment. Every thing falls into place as we obey that one great law.
It is up to the parents in every family to determine the standards for their own families. It is up to all of us to give each other the freedom to be different in our liberties in Christ Jesus with out causing the weaker brother to stumble.
The grace of Jesus is our great joy and prize. Our church emphasizes that we are never more or less loved and accepted by God from the moment we are saved. Our standing with God never changes regardless of our failures or successes. God loves us the same always. He loves us enough to bless us or chasten us. Whatever we need to keep us in fellowship with Him.
