Kingdom Culture - Victory Culture
The culture of God’s kingdom is first, Christ centered; second, Bible based; and third Holy Spirit empowered and directed. These are also the three ingredients common to all real revivals. The Victory culture is a specific ethos that springs out of the kingdom culture.
Eight qualities that help create what I call our Victory culture.
1. Praise and thanksgiving: “From the rising of the sun to its going down the Lord’s name is to be praised” (Psalm 113:3 NKJ). David scheduled praise breaks throughout his day “Seven times a day I praise You...” (Psalm 119:164). If you want to change your environment and your attitude, start praising God throughout the day.
2. Purpose: “For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea” (Habakkuk 2:14; Matthew 24:14). Victory is an Apostolic/Prophetic kingdom building movement. We know our purpose at each level:
a. Locally: Evangelism; Discipleship; Mobilization.
b. Nationally and Internationally: Leadership development; Church expansion; World Missions. This is our Local, National and International statement of purpose along with the process.
3. Partnership: We are going somewhere together. The apostle Paul said of his partners: “you all are partakers with me of grace” (Philippians 1:7; 27). Any great vision requires great partners.
4. Passion: We do what we do with feeling. We are passionate about our purpose.
5. Pastoral: We are relational—we care. People are our most valuable asset.
6. Professional: We always strive for excellence. We try to do the very best we can with what we have.
7. Progressive: We are visionary and apostolic. This means we are forward thinking, what’s next kind of people!
8. Positive: We have a positive faith attitude that looks for the good, believes the best and is willing to take a risk on people.
This is what I call the Victory Pea Pod. Imagine what would happen if these eight qualities formed the normal culture and DNA of our lives and churches. There is no doubt in my mind that we would become world changers and history makers that would hasten the return of our Lord Jesus!
- Learn our DNA
- Teach our DNA so that it is in every area of our lives and ministry
- Eliminate things outside of our DNA
- Live out of the strength of our DNA
Yours for a kingdom culture that will usher in revival and the return of Christ!
