About Us

Our Story

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. Our ministries include Sunday School, VBC Kids, Nursing Home, Patch the Pirate Club amongst others. We offer a nursery for infants through three year olds for all of our services. 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.

Christ Centered

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.
