Our History

Victory Baptist Church was begun as King James Baptist Church by a small handful of believers in 1973. We met in an old church in Hurdletown, deep in the country near Hertford, NC. Two pastors, Hugh Goldman and Grover Twiddy, each led the congregation for a short time as we built the new building off of Highway 17. In May of 1976, Pastor R.L. Parker was called to pastor King James Baptist Church. Not long after, the members voted to change the name of the church to Victory Baptist Church. Within five years, the Lord led the members to begin Victory Christian School. Since then, we have constantly labored to maintain, improve, and expand our campus. The blue elementary building was the first addition, followed by the modular classrooms. In 1996, the gymnasium/activity center was built. The shop was converted into another classroom a few years later. An addition was added onto the gymnasium for multipurpose uses. Most recently, the Lord has blessed us with a brand new church building. It was finished in November of 2012. From the beginning, the school has been a ministry and extension of the church, controlled exclusively by it.


Throughout our history, Victory Baptist Church has had one unifying purpose to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that this is why God has blessed us. Our goals are to edify and comfort one another and evangelize the unsaved. We hope that we are known for our compassion and friendliness.


Victory Baptist Ministries eagerly looks forward to the future. We want to be ready for all that God can accomplish through our ministries.
