Our Story

History of ChurchVictorious Life Church was birthed out of a revival held in Carrollton, Texas back in the late 1930s. Those who were ministered to so powerfully in those meetings decided that they should form their own congregation and plant a church, as there was no Pentecostal church in the small town north of Dallas. By the mid-1940s, the little church was going strong and had become a part of the Assemblies of God fellowship. First Assembly of God in Carrollton met in several locations until finally building a church building on School Road (later known as Larner Road) in the 60s, and adding a fellowship hall and missionary quarters to it in the 70s. Through the years and the leadership of several pastors, God blessed First Assembly and it remained a Pentecostal presence and outreach in the Old Town area of Carrollton, becoming known as Victorious Life Church in the mid-1980s.

In 1988, Rev. Mark Akers became the pastor of Victorious Life Church, and has led our congregation through trials, victories, church remodels, incredible revivals and moves of the Holy Spirit, and finally the move from Carrollton to Lewisville. The culmination of years of vision, prayer, and planning, the people of Victorious Life Church pulled together and acquired new property several miles north in the Vista Ridge area of Lewisville, and in late 2006 completed the new facilities for our church home. Through the tremendous sacrifice and careful stewardship of our members, VLC gained occupancy of a new building at the turn of 2007 and has embarked on a new era of outreach and an expanded mission field.

We are committed to reach out to our community, raise-up disciples of Jesus Christ, and release ministers of the Gospel back into the world that are able to reproduce their faith in others. Praise be to God!
