Victory Baptist Church was started on November 15, 1952 with 36 charter members. D. E. Avery was the first pastor at Victory. We are located on the Northside of Jacksonville. Full of loving, caring people, Victory is blessed to be led by, Pastor Stephen Ashmore. Our ministries include Sunday School, Nursing Home, Patch the Pirate Club amongst others. We are home to Victory Christian Academy which offers an accelerated Christian education for 2 year olds through the 12th grade.
Victory Baptist Church has been fulfilling its purpose of spreading the Gospel on the north side of Jacksonville for over 60 years now. By God’s grace, we look forward to doing the same for as long as He tarries His coming.
Our Core Values
We are conservative in our approach to the Scriptures. We believe God inspired the human authors of the Bible and it is error free.
We believe Christ should be at the center of everything we do as a church. In everything we do you will find Christ as the central focus.
As a body of believers we are called to care for one another. At Victory you will find a family atmosphere where caring for one another is essential.

B. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through His death on the cross as a representative, vicarious, substitutionary sacrifice; and, that our justification is made sure by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead (Romans 3:24, 25; I Peter 2:24; Ephesians 1:7; I Peter 1:3-5).
C. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ ascended into Heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God, where, as our High Priest, He fulfills the ministry of Representative, Intercessor, and Advocate (Acts 1:9,10; Hebrews 9:24; Romans 8:34; I John 2:1,2).
B. We believe that He is the divine Teacher Who guides believers into all truth; and, that it is the privilege and duty of all the saved to be filled with the Spirit (John 16:13; I John 2:20, 27; Ephesians 5:18).
B. We believe that it is the privilege of believers to rejoice in the assurance of their salvation through the testimony of God’s Word, which, however, clearly forbids the use of Christian liberty as an occasion to the flesh. Each of us must remember that we will stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ (Romans 13:13, 14; Galatians 5:13; Titus 2:11-15; II Corinthians 5:10).
B. We believe it is our responsibility to maintain missionary activities in the United States and foreign countries (Matthew 28:19-20).
B. We believe that God does hear and answer the prayer of faith, in accord with His own will, for the sick and afflicted (John 15:7; I John 5:14-15).
B. We believe that the establishment and continuance of local churches is clearly taught and defined in the New Testament Scriptures (Acts 14:27; 10:17, 28-32; I Timothy 3:1-13; Titus 1:5-11).
B. We believe that the Lord’s Supper or Communion is the commemoration of our Lord’s death until He comes and is to be observed by all the redeemed as commanded by Christ Himself; and, that the bread symbolizes the body of Christ and the cup symbolizes the shed blood of Christ (I Corinthians 11:23-32; Matthew 26:26-29; Luke 22:19,20).
B. We believe that the souls of the redeemed are, at death, absent from the body and present with the Lord, where in conscious bliss they await the first resurrection when spirit, soul, and body are reunited to be glorified forever with the Lord (Luke 23:42; Revelation 20:4-6; II Corinthians 5:8; Philippians 1:13; 3:21; I Thessalonians 4:16,17).
C. We believe that the souls of unbelievers remain, after death, in conscious misery until the second resurrection, when with soul and body reunited they shall appear at the Great White Throne Judgment, and shall be cast into the Lake of Fire, not to be annihilated, but to suffer everlasting conscious punishment (Luke 16:19-26; Matthew 25:41-46; II Thessalonians 1:7-9; Jude 6,7; Mark 9:43-48; Revelation 20:11-15).
