Victory Christian Center, a Spirit filled church, is built on four very important central themes, derived from an acrostic of the word A.C.T.S.. This is the book of the Bible where the church, as we know it, was born and came to life-giving vitality after Jesus was resurrected and ascended.

The acrostic representation is:

A – Accepting - we embrace all, under the banner of love in Jesus Christ

C – Caring - we believe in nurturing others and making life-giving relationships

T – Training - we understand our responsibility to train others for a victorious and power-filled life

S – Serving - we embrace that we are Jesus' agents in the world and "give 'em heaven"!

The scripture that accompanies those themes, outlining who we envision to be, is found in Acts 2:42 (NIV)

"They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer."

These fundamental core values outline all that we do, with God's grace, to reach, teach and release others.


We Value God...

We seek an increasingly deeper, more personal relationship with God our Father, with our Lord Jesus Christ, and with the precious Holy Spirit. This is expressed through our passionate worship of the Lord Jesus Christ, with an intense desire for His manifest presence in our services. We embrace personal and corporate “times of refreshing” (carpet time) as we yield to the workings of the Holy Spirit in our lives.

We Value People…

We believe that all people have worth, and that “Christ died for all” (2 Cor. 5:14). Believing this, we accept everyone that God sends us, acknowledging that we are all individually and uniquely gifted for His purposes. We encourage freedom of expression as we provide a “Safe Place” for all people, young and old, to gain entrance into the Kingdom of God and be trained in His ways.

We Value Service…

We believe in serving as a team. The Bible teaches us that the body is not one member but many and that each individual member is needed and necessary in order for the body to function effectively (1 Cor. 12:14-22). The New Testament word for service is “diakoneo” which means to be a servant, or an attendant, to wait upon, or to minister. Believing this, we place a high priority on training individuals to serve as a team, with excellence!


As a world-wide harvest minded fellowship, the International Church of Foursquare Gospel stands on another four precepts:­

Jesus as Savior
Jesus as Baptizer in the Holy Spirit
Jesus as Healer
Jesus as Soon Coming King

The scripture that accompanies our denominational fellowship globally is Hebrews 13:8

"Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today and forever."

The Holy Scriptures
We believe the Bible is God-inspired (2 Timothy 3:16,17).

The Fall of Man
We believe that man was created in the image of God, but that by voluntary disobedience he fell from innocence and purity (Romans 5:12).

The Plan of Salvation
We believe that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us, signing the pardon of all who believe on Him (John 3:16; Romans 5:8).

Salvation Through Grace
We believe that we have no righteousness and must come to God pleading the righteousness of Christ (Ephesians 2:8).

Repentance and Acceptance
We believe that upon sincere repentance, and a whole-hearted acceptance of Christ, we are justified before God (1 John 1:9).

The New Birth
We believe that the change which takes place in the heart and life at conversion is a very real one (2 Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 2:20).

Daily Christian Living
We believe that it is the will of God that we be sanctified daily, growing constantly in the faith (Hebrews 6:1).

Baptism and the
Lord's Supper

We believe that baptism by immersion is an outward sign of an inward work (Matt. 28:19). We believe in the commemoration of the Lord's Supper by the symbolic use of the bread and juice of the vine (1 Corinthians 11:24, 25).

Baptism with the Holy Spirit
We believe that the Baptism with the Holy Spirit is to endue the believer with power; and that His incoming is after the same manner as in Bible days (Acts 2:4).

The Spirit-Filled Life
We believe that it is the will of God that we walk in the Spirit daily (Ephesians 4:30-32).

The Gifts and Fruit of the Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit has gifts to bestow upon the Christian; and that we should show spiritual fruit as evidence of a Spirit-filled life (1 Corinthians 12:1-11; Galatians 5:22).

We believe that the experience and daily walk of the believer should never lead him into extremes of fanaticism (Philippians 4:5).

Divine Healing
We believe that divine healing is the power of Christ to heal the physically sick in answer to the prayer of faith (James 5:14-16).

The Second Coming of Christ
We believe that the second coming of Christ is personal and imminent (1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17).

Church Relationship
We believe it is our sacred duty to identify ourselves with the visible Body of Christ (Acts 16:5; Hebrews 10:25).

Civil Government
We believe that rulers should be upheld at all times except in things opposed to the will of God (Romans 13:1-5).

The Final Judgement
We believe that all shall stand some day before the judgement seat of God, and there receive eternal life or death (2 Corinthians 5:10).

We believe that heaven is the glorious eternal home of born-again believers (John 14:1-3; Revelation 7:15-17).

We believe that hell is the place of eternal torment for all who reject Christ as the Savior (Revelation 20:10,15).

We believe that soul winning is the most important responsibility of the Church (James 5:20).

Pastor Tony and Sandy

Pastor Tony Krishack is the founding and senior Pastor of Victory Christian Center, a multi-cultural congregation in Houston, Texas. As a successful businessman, he felt God call him to plant a church, which began in his home in 1982. The church now ministers to thousands of people monthly on Victory’s own 25-acre campus.

In 1994, a great outpouring of the Holy Spirit, birthed in Toronto, Canada and referred to as the Toronto Outpouring, greatly impacted Pastor Tony’s life. This move of God was then introduced to the congregation of Victory, greatly influencing their lives as well. Under his leadership, Victory Christian Center continues to be a place of healing, restoration, and refreshing for the city of Houston, and beyond.

Whether as a Senior Pastor, Foursquare District Supervisor, or businessman, Pastor Tony has always had a desire to help people develop to their full potential. His passion to teach the Bible, equip the church, and release people into their calling continues to be the driving force for his ministry. His leadership brings both vision and direction to the church, while his gift for teaching the Word of God imparts biblical values and instills principles for living a Godly life. Those who know Pastor Tony well appreciate his unquestionable integrity and his capacity and love for the things for God. He is an inspiring example and model of a life well-lived in the Kingdom of God.

As a prophet and pastor, Pastor Sandy is passionate about seeing the Body of Christ equipped for acts of service, especially in the area of the prophetic. As the director of EPIC, a 9-month Emerging Prophets Immersion Course, her passion is to raise up prophetic people to impact the Kingdom of God and our culture, to help them discover their unique prophetic identity, and to fulfill the call of God on their life.  Pastor Sandy also oversees many other vibrant ministries within Victory. Her vision for the future, her commitment to excellence, and her willingness to embrace the new things that God is doing, continue to bring direction to the church and excitement about the plans and purposes of God.

Pastor Tony and Pastor Sandy both have a deep passion for the Presence of God, the Word of God, and the people of God. This is evident through the extraordinary worship services, the uncompromised teaching of the Word of God, and the love, compassion, and training shown throughout the various ministries of the church. They are deeply committed to training and releasing spirit-filled and biblically sound leaders, and empowering the body of Christ to reach the community and the harvest.
