Mission statement

Victorious Christian Living International communicates its mission statement as follows:

Our mission is to serve and equip the Church worldwide and to see the Body of Christ grow in spiritual maturity through biblical discipleship.


Statement of faith

Victorious Christian Living International, Inc.'s Statement of Faith is:

We believe that all Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is the infallible, authoritative Word of God.

We believe that all Scripture is centered in and about the Lord Jesus Christ.

We believe that the Godhead eternally exists in three Persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and that these three are one God.

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death and burial, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His future personal return in power and glory.

We believe that man was originally created in the image and likeness of God. Man fell into sin and is therefore spiritually dead.

We believe sin has been transmitted to the entire human race.

We believe that man's redemption has been accomplished entirely by the shed blood of our Lord Jesus Christ and His finished work.

We believe that the new birth of the believer comes only through faith in Jesus Christ and the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit.

We believe that through faith in Jesus Christ one passes immediately out of spiritual death into spiritual life and is accepted as God's child and sealed in Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit.

We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells all believers and is the source of power to worship, to serve, and to live a godly life.

We believe that we are called to walk after the Spirit.

We believe that such a walk is energized by the Holy Spirit through a diversity of enabling gifts for service.

We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ has commissioned believers to make Jesus Christ and His life known to the world.

History

Phoenix Headquarters
Established in 1979, the VCLi International Headquarters is located in Phoenix, Arizona. The Phoenix office conducts a weekly SALT group on Thursday nights, one-week intensive conferences numerous times during the year, weekend seminars are scheduled throughout the year, and personal discipleship sessions with the staff are scheduled during the weekdays. All services are provided free of charge, except for the cost of materials.


Program accomplishments

For over 25 years, VCLi has been providing the church with life-changing discipleship materials like SALT for the purpose of growing believers.

SALT is an acronym for Seven Areas of Life Training . The seven areas are Spiritual, Psychological, Social, Physical, Financial, Marital, and ParentaLearning. The goal of this comprehensive discipleship series is how to live victoriously in all seven areas of life.

The series can be used in small groups, Sunday Schools, personal discipleship like mentoring or coaching, in prisons, as well as inner-city ministries or self-study series. Biblical truths are visually illustrated with diagrams in each lesson. Biblical truth is taught in each lesson with a challenge to apply that truth to your life.
