In 1967, Sonny and Julie Arguinzoni were led by God to start a ministry dedicated to reaching the hurting people of the worlds' inner cities. We began in a small building on Gless St. in the heart of East Los Angeles, and began reachingout to the surrounding areas. From those humble beginnings more than forty years ago, God has developed a worldwide ministry still dedicated to the original vision. Yet our vision has expanded from just reaching drug addicts and gang members, to impacting people from all walks of life. Today Sonny and Julie continue to inspire the work locally and lead the ministry internationally.
Victory Outreach is the recognized leader in the field of sustainable transformational ministry. Since 1967, we have helped thousands of people take control of their lives. From our simple beginning, we have grown into an international organization, carrying the hope and message of Jesus Christ to the four corners of the earth.
Throughout the years, we have strived for excellence. We have reorganized our corporate structure to enhance administration and facilitate growth. We have provided state of the art training for our pastoral staff and leadership, and have raised the expectations of our staff to new levels of proficiency. We have taken steps to make sure the legacy of Victory Outreach continues for generations to come. In Victory Outreach churches and centers worldwide, it is compassion that triumphs…faith that endures.
For over 45 years, the foundational beliefs that have been a primary motivating factor in Victory Outreach are seen evident in the thousands of lives that have never been the same since they walked through the doors of Victory Outreach. Victory Outreach is uniquely distinguished by its fundamental belief in God’s love and in the transforming power of His love for hurting people from all walks of life.
Victory Outreach believes in the church’s mission to reach the lost as mandated by Christ in what is known as the Great Commission found in the Gospels. Jesus commands his disciples “… go and make disciples of all nations” and “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation” (Mt 28:19, Mark 16:15 NIV).
Victory Outreach believes that the Spirit of God is still actively working in the building of the church through manifestations such as the Baptism of the Holy Spirit for the empowerment of service, speaking in tongues and the impartation of spiritual gifts to each believer (Acts 1: 4-8, 2: 1-4, I Cor 12, Rom 12: 5-8).
The beliefs of Victory Outreach can be classified as Evangelical and Pentecostal. Following is the organizations Statement of Faith which are the nonnegotiable tenets of faith that all Victory Outreach churches adhere to.
