Victory Christian Ministries International (VCMI) is one church in many locations. Founded by Pastors Tony and Cynthia Brazelton in 1992, VCMI has established locations in Suitland , Waldorf, MD, Bowie, MD, Woodbridge VA, Washington DC , Orlando, FL as well as Middlesbrough, UK. We recently launched our newest location in St. Mary's County, MD! Each one of these dynamic ministries are specifically designed to build and strengthen a community-centered church.
We are committed to teaching the Word of God in a tangible and practical format that will cause you to grow, mature, and develop into the person God created you to be. We provide various resources, from weekly worship experiences, small groups, to all locations conferences and events, all to help you grow in your relationship with God. VCMI is dedicated to building strong families that in turn build strong communities that will impact the world for Jesus.
THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS UPON US AND HE HAS ANOINTED US TO PREACH THE GOSPEL AND TO RAISE UP A BODY OF BELIEVERS TO BE THE CHURCH OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST; A CHURCH WITHOUT WALLS. OUR GOALS ARE TO TEACH THE WORD OF GOD SO THAT AT ANYTIME YOU CAN SEE THE WORD, HEAR THE WORD, AND UNDERSTAND THE WORD OF GOD, YOU CAN BE CONVERTED INTO THE WORD YOU SEE, HEAR, AND UNDERSTAND; AND ONCE WE ARE CONVERTED, WE CAN NOW STRENGTHEN THE BRETHREN; AND AS WITNESSES DECLARE WITH BOLDNESS . . .
AS JESUS IS, SO ARE WE IN THIS WORLD
(1 JOHN 4:17)
WHO WE ARE
We are one church in many locations. VCMI has campuses across the United States and the United Kingdom.
We partner with local businesses to give back to our community. We host weekly pop up markets where residents can come and get fresh produce free of charge at several of our campuses.
We feed those in need every Sunday before our worship service at our mother church in Suitland, Maryland.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
VCMI lovingly reaches out to people who are far from God. Rather than run from culture, we have chosen to harness it to connect with people and show them God's timeless truths. Although our approach is anything but traditional, we believe in and maintain a conservative theological position.
JESUS CHRIST - Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He came to earth, was crucified and buried for the sin of all mankind. On the third day, He rose from the dead and ascended into Heaven where He remains at the right hand of God Almighty.
ETERNAL LIFE - After death, eternal life begins either in Heaven or Hell. Where you spend eternity is based on your decision to receive salvation here on earth.
RAPTURE - When the rapture occurs, the dead in Christ will rise first, and those who are alive and remain will be caught up to meet Jesus in the air.
THE BIBLE - The Bible is the inspired written word of God.
FAITH - Faith is acting on the Word of God.
BAPTISM - We water baptize in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
THE HOLY SPIRIT - We believe in the indwelling of and baptism in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues.
HEALING - Divine healing is the restoration of health to those who believe and act on the truths written in God's Word. Jesus Christ is our Healer, and by His stripes we are already healed.
TITHES & OFFERING - Tithes and offerings should be freely given to your local church. The local church is the place of membership where God has called you to receive His Word and teachings on a consistent basis for your spiritual growth and edification.
GIVING - We believe in giving alms to the poor, sick, homeless, and others in despair.
