We exist to love God and love people.
Since 1996, Victory Church has stood on the foundations of Matthew 22:37-40, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
We believe in reaching lost & broken people and meeting them right where they are. At Victory Church, you’ll find it’s a place where people love and care for one another – a place to feel valued.
Pastor Don & Cathy Karpinen
Pastor Don and Cathy Karpinen are the founding pastors of Victory Church. They exude a passion for people, and for making Christ famous in the South Florida community. Their commitment to leadership at Victory is evident in their 20 years of ministry.
Don and Cathy aren’t small thinkers. They proudly lead a team of highly-energized staff and volunteers who illustrate the idea of spreading wide and thinking big (Isaiah 54) to reach those who are lost.
Pastor Don and Cathy have three children: Donny, Carrie, and Jay.
Victory Church is a Christ-centered church that loves God, loves people, and transforms people into world changers. Our core values are building community, making disciples, and reaching the lost.
To be an intergenerational church that attracts people from all walks of life and connects them to God through Jesus Christ.
