We are an Independent Fundamental Baptist Church located at 445 Shelton Road, Hampton, Va. We are not governed or affiliated with any outside formal organization.
We are fundamental in that our church is founded on the New Testament scripture. We believe the deity of Christ, the virgin birth, and salvation by the Grace of God through faith. We stand on God's word as presented in the KJV 1611 Bible. Christ is the head of our church and the Pastor is the leader of the local church. We are premillennial and believe in the rapture of the church and the second coming of Christ
Our Founding Pastor
In Memory of Our Founder: Dr. Samuel E. Hyde
Preacher Samuel Elmer Hyde, Sr. went home to be with the Lord on April 25, 2015, surrounded by those he loved. Pastor Hyde faithfully served the Lord until he was called home. Pastor Samuel E. Hyde had been the pastor of Victory Baptist since 1963. He was a native of Bryson City, North Carolina and a veteran of the Korea war. Pastor Hyde graduated from Clear Creek Baptist College, Pineville, Kentucky in May 1963. He was our Pastor from 1963 until 2015 and continued to preach and teach the Word of God until his final calling.
Samuel E. Hyde, Sr. surrendered to preach the gospel in April of 1958. He graduated from Clear Creek Baptist College in May of 1963. While attending college, he was the pastor of Riverview Baptist Church of Calvin Kentucky. Upon graduation, he and his family returned to Hampton, as led by God's Spirit. God spoke in this manner; thus, Victory Baptist Church had its beginning.
By the leading of the Holy Spirit, this church held the first meeting on the first Sunday of October 1963. The church was organized on January 12th, 1964 with 19 charter members. The meeting place was the same as the present address. A store building was purchased in 1964 for $30,000. This was remodeled and used for 21 years, until the present facility was built. The educational building was completed in 1985 and the new auditorium was finished in 1987.
