Victory Action has been established to enable you to action your faith. James 2:20 says faith without works is dead. We all have a sphere of influence, and Victory Action aims to encourage Christians to utilise their influence and voice to speak out for righteousness in our nation.
We will give you access to other organisations and websites that will keep you current with ongoing and upcoming issues seeking to erode our Christian Heritage. You will be alerted to issues that require a specific action. This may be petitions needing to be signed and submitted for tabling in Parliament, letters and emails to be sent to out Parliamentarians, encouraging our leaders or regarding legislation on moral issues that need to be opposed and to newspapers, TV and radio stations. Our God is a God of the impossible - never underestimate what God will do when you begin to speak out and stand up for righteousness, whether in prayer or in the media.
"No one could make a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little" Edmund Burke
Local MP's and Government
As citizens we have a duty to communicate with our parliamentarians and let them know our views. Their role, as our elected representatives, is to represent us.
However, as an article called 'Why Does Democracy Fail' from Compton's encyclopedia explains, they cannot represent US if we don't tell them what we think about a particular issue. We have a responsibility to communicate with our MPs.
