Heart & Soul
That people would know God, find freedom, discover purpose, and make a difference. Our purpose is to train leaders and encourage a unified effort to propagate the Gospel throughout our region so that every city and Indian nation has a chance to hear the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved.


The heartbeat of this church is to build strong families with unshakable faith. We also endeavor to truly be a ‘church family.’ We carry one another’s burdens and love each other well. No outsiders, strangers, or misfits. 

Victory is a church on a mission to connect all people to Jesus Christ to build growing disciples of Jesus Christ by REACHING the unchurched, TEACHING the believers, and SERVING the community. 

Victory is a growing, thriving church. The church eagerly welcomes and integrates guests and we are well known for friendly people and hospitable atmosphere. The general culture of Victory is rich with many cultures and ethnic groups that are representative of the community. Worship is a high priority at VWC with a contemporary style of high octane praise and energetic worship. At Victory, “worship” is our middle name.

This year marks Victory’s 48th year of service to the Ponca City/Kay County community at three different locations, with Senior Pastor Rick Hughes and his wife Valeria celebrating their 28th year of ministry to this congregation. Over the years the church has made many positive changes in order to accommodate a growing congregation. Consistent growth led the church to the present central location eight years ago because of its high visibility and opportunities for expansion. Pastor Hughes emphasizes that “Victory is all about building people. Ministry and activities are planned for every age group with the end result being transformed lives. We’re thrilled to be right in the heart of the city, and believe God has directed us to this location with a mandate to impact our community!”

Victory is blessed with many children and offers outstanding KIDZ ministries. Prayer is a high priority at Victory with weekly prayer activities and a monthly 12-hour prayer chain always on the schedule. Many special services and guest speakers are also scheduled throughout the year. Guests are warmly welcomed at every service. Victory is a guest-friendly congregation and is always seeking new members!

Victory is highly committed to the community through various ministries, Dave Ramsey’s “Financial Peace University” seminars annually, quarterly OBI blood drives, “Gotcha Covered” prayer ministry for law enforcement, jail ministry at the Kay County Detention Center, as well as serving as host to community gatherings such as a precinct for voting for city, county and state elections.
