I have been a member of this church for 12 years. I used to do drugs and drink and mess with girls. I joined the Navy to get out of some charges, but that was not the answer. I was still screwing up and so I cried out to God. The very next day, for the first time ever, someone witnessed to me. They prayed a sinners prayer with me and I got saved. They envited me out to church 45 minutes away. They took care of me as a new christian, moved me in their house to get off the ship, waited sometimes until 7 or 8 at night till I got off work. This church is so full of love. The real problem is, love will tell you the truth. Love will tell you when you are screwing up or when your backsliding or when your wife runs your home. Love will tell you to forgive, and sacrifice, and labor, just like that person did for me when I got saved. The real problem is people who lose their fire for God. Rather than hold on to truth and strive to get it back, they sell the truth for a lie and take their ease and forsake for the temporal pleasures of this world, but to justify this they have to tear down the church and attempt to discredit the leader. That makes them feel like they are right in leaving the church and living however they want. As for leader, Pastor Ron Meyer is a man of God and a great leader. He has an awesome vision and hopefully some day I could be like him and do all that he has done. He has done nothing but love our church since the day it started. I tell you this, if you are looking for a church that wants to be found faithful, working, reaching the lost, healing the sick, fighting against the powers of darkness, not just Sunday moring but a real christinan lifestyle (because that is what we all need anyways) then look no further. This is the place. I owe my life, my soul, and my future to the poeple of this congregation and fellowship. Thank you for reading.
I am a member of this church and have been for 20 years. When I first came to the church, I was almost 21 years old and had been in the Navy for almost 3 years. Growing up I battled rejection, self-pity, and bitterness. My dad was military so every 4 years or so we would move. When we did, at first everything seemed good and I did really well in school. But my problems always followed and I ended up a very bitter unhappy young woman. I tried escaping all this by getting into science fiction and fantasy books and movies. When I first came out to victory chapel, I had recently vowed to God I would kill myself because I hated my life and cried out to Him to prove that the bible is true. I soon after met someone and they invited me to the church, and at that first service I met a living Saviour who totally healed me of all my pain, rejection, bitterness, and self-pity. If it hadn't been that Jesus caused me to cross paths with Pastor Meyer and his family as well as the congregation, I do not know where I would be today. I thank God always that I am a member of such an awesome church with such a loving shepherd!! And I am now happily married to a wonderful man of God and we are excited to see what God has in store for us and our church. Thanks!
Victory Chapel is like a home to me.I am 14 years old and I go to the church in the Bronx. Our fellowship is one big family.Whenever one of our churches need help,we go and help.The church preaches the truth and many people don't like what they hear.I know I didn't like what I heard when I first entered and I thought the people were annoying.When I actually gave my life to God and not just said I did,my eyes were opened.The people are amazing people and they did have major problems before coming to Christ but thats what getting saved is about.No one is perfect.We all come to Christ broken but God can take the worst sinner and make tham a man of truth.My cousin was a major thug and abbuser but now he is a pastor in Chicago. We make excuses to not come to this church because we dont like what we hear but if we would be patient,we would see that not everything can go our way and we are not God.We will make mistakes.I hope people realize the truth and the love of Christ before it too late and shut the Devil up with his lies.Salvation is a wonderful thing
