A real church for real people.
Life is more than going through the motions and keeping up appearances. In a city of planned neighborhoods, abundant shopping, and plastic grass, wouldn’t it be nice to have a church that isn’t just a facade going through the motions, but instead is a focused community seeking to live out the ancient faith amidst modern life.
God gave Victory Lutheran Church (LCMC) in Mesa a vision and a heart to bless a people and an area they were not reaching, so they pooled resources and purchased a campus down the street and hired a staff to engage, equip, and encourage the adjacent neighborhood, families, and schools.

WHY START ANOTHER CHURCH?
New churches are the most effective form of evangelism. New churches gain 70% of their members from people who are not attending any church body, while established churches gain over 90% of their new members from transfer.
Jesus says, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few.” In Maricopa County there are 2,325,637 people without a church home. As many older churches are dwindling and closing, Mesa will need new churches that share a clear and fresh presentation of the gospel.
