The History Of Victory

Victory Baptist Church was founded in 1975 by Dr. R. Larry Brown and his wife, Diane, in the living room of their home. Over forty-five years since, those nine members have grown to a membership of 4,000. Following Dr. Browns leadership, on September 8, 2019, Pastor CT Townsend became the Pastor of Victory Baptist Church. With gratitude and excitement, Pastor CT and the church family are anticipating that the Best Is Yet to Come!

The Rapture And The Second Coming Of Christ

We believe that a future period of great tribulation on the earth will be climaxed by the return of the Lord Jesus Christ to the earth as He went in person in the clouds with power and great glory to establish His millennial kingdom. But prior to this tribulation, we believe there will be the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ in the air to receive to Himself into Heaven both His own who are alive and remain until His coming and also all who have died in Jesus Christ.1 Thessalonians 4:13-17 Zechariah 14:4-11 Revelation 3:10

Victory Baptist Church in North Augusta will be celebrating the installation of a new pastor on Sunday, Sept. 8 after Dr. Larry Brown, founder and pastor for 44 years, steps down.

Rev. CT Townsend will be assuming the pulpit of the church after being unanimously voted to succeed Brown.

Townsend is a native of West Virginia who, at age 21, moved to North Augusta and enrolled in Victory Baptist College, where he worked as an assistant to Brown.

In 2012, Townsend worked as as assistant pastor at Trinity Baptist Church in Asheville, North Carolina.

“It was here that God began to implant a deeper burden for evangelism and revival which led CT and his family on a path to cross this country tirelessly sharing the gospel,” a biography of Townsend states.

“CT is passionate about clearly preaching the Gospel,” the biography states, mentioning numerous revivals, crusades, retreats and conferences Townsend has been a part of. Townsend is married to Becky Hurte Townsend and they have three children: Tucker, Syler and Everlee.

Townsend will succeed Dr. Richard Larry Brown.

Victory Baptist Church Opening New Learning Center

Christians In Business

NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. – Its been part of the North Augusta community for more than 40 years. And now Victory Baptist Church and Christian School is expanding its reach. Former Pastor Larry Brown founded both the church and school back in the 70s. Were looking at how the congregation is carrying on his legacy with a new learning center.

He was a people person. If you knew him, you loved him, said Bethany Stafford, director, Early Childhood Learning Center of Victory Baptist Church.

Former pastor of Victory Baptist church Dr. Larry brown passed away two weeks ago. He founded the church in 1975 and the school a couple years later.

He started the Christian School in hopes for the staff members and our church members to be able to put their children in Christian education, she said.

Bethany Stafford was once a student at the school and is now the director of the new early childhood learning center there. It will be for those six weeks to three years old. She says the building is not new, but where Victory Baptist was initially started.

The building that we are going to be in is the first building our pastor created in this property, so to be able to open the doors again for children is huge for us, she said.

Current pastor C.T Townsend had a vision for the learning center two years ago when he stepped in as pastor.

The goal of the teachers here now is the same as Pastor Brown so many years ago.

The Person And Work Of The Lord Jesus Christ

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, came into the world that He might manifest God to men, fulfill prophecy, and become the Redeemer of a lost world. To this end, He was born of the Virgin Mary, received a human body and a sinless human nature without ceasing to be God.Luke 1:30-35 John 1:1, 14, 18 Hebrews 4:15 Philippians 2:5-11

We believe that, in infinite love for the lost, He voluntarily accepted His Fathers will and became the divinely provided sacrificial Lamb and took away the sins of the world.Romans 3:25-31 2 Corinthians 5:14 Hebrews 10:5-14

We believe He rose from the dead in the same body, though glorified, in which He had lived and died and that His resurrected body is the pattern of the body which ultimately will be given to all believers.John 20:20 Philippians 3:20-21

We believe that on departing earth, He was accepted by His Father and that His acceptance is a final assurance to us that His redeeming work was perfectly accomplished.Hebrews 1:3

We believe that He became head over all things to the church, which is His body, and in this ministry He does not cease to intercede and to be an advocate for the saved.Luke 1:35 1 Corinthians 15:1-3 Ephesians 1:23 Philippians 2:6-8 1 Timothy 2:5 1 John 2:1-2
