Victory Tabernacle, "A Center of Hope", is located at 7330 NC 27 West, Lillington, NC. Being led by the Spirit of the Lord, Dr. Campbell began conducting Bible Study in her home. After four years, the Spirit of the Lord led Dr. Campbell to begin a church. The church was organized under the prayerful leadership of Elder Barbara M. Campbell, with only five adult members, on September 30, 1979.
In March of 1980, the church relocated to a county landmark known as Mason Store. Mr. Fred McDonald generously allowed the church to use the building - rent free, for as long as was needed. The Lord blessed us with His rich presence and the church continued to grow. Many souls were added to the Body of Christ and many were delivered. Tithes, pledges, and freewill offerings alone supported the building project. A handful of unskilled laborers: men, women, children, and friends of the church labored to get the job done. On November 13, 1982, our new sanctuary was dedicated. This was surely a day of VICTORY! What God had spoken had come to pass!
The ministry continues to move from phase to phase as the Lord blesses. He has enabled us to purchase many acres of land. Also, there have been many ministries added, to equip and nourish the saints. The Lord has blessed us to establish two relief houses. The houses were named after two of Pastor Campbell's children, Tony and Sheila. They were dedicated July, 9 2000 for the Lords service. The purpose of the houses is to provide relief to those who are weary, worn, tired, bruised, and in need of comfort. In 2008 the completion of the Family Life Center, 'JR'S PLACE' was dedicated. Victory Christian Academy and Preschool reopened in 2010. Three modulars were added on the campus plus a softball field.
The church had a very humble beginning, and the Lord has blessed us tremendously spiritually and naturally. All the glory belongs to God for all that has been accomplished!
As we move forward into Gods plan for this ministry, we will continue to find strength in one of Pastor Campbell's favorite scripture:
"God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? Or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?" Numbers 23:19
The church can truly be a witness, as Pastor Campbell often says, "If God spoke it, He shall make it good!"
