A Little Glimpse of our History
During the mid 1960's a small group of believers began to hold prayer meetings in one of their homes and thus Bible Baptist Church was birthed. These prayer meetings continued and grew until on April 16, 1965 Bible Baptist Church was formally organized.
In June 1966 the church moved to the location at 1506 Radium Springs Road where over the next eight years three new buildings were built and thus remodeled to become the current structural complex.
After seeing the community change vastly over the last four decades, the church prayed fervently for God's direction in relocating to another area. In July of 2012, the church entered into an agreement with another congregation to lease to purchase our facilities thus making in possible for a location change. The first phase of this location change was to temporarily move to the chapel of Hall and Hall Funeral Home located at 324 S.Mock Road here in Albany along with officially changing the name of the church to Victory Baptist Church. The second phase was to locate and purchase another suitable site that will meet the current and future needs of Victory Baptist Church. This was accomplished in November of 2013, when the church purchased the building formerly housing WeeCare Daycare at 1489 Philema Road, Leesburg, GA 31763. As the facility was originally built for a daycare there are several renovations to be made.
