Nice people as far as the congregation is concerned but cultish in nature. Works based doctrine and biblical understanding superficial at best. They have a men's home based in Clendon Manurewa which is stuck in the dark ages, they say it is faith based but it's just a front, it's purpose is to recruit men into the VO organisation to build their numbers. It is not recovery based what so ever. If you need assistance with substance abuse you need to contact the alcohol and drug helpline and find a regular NZ service, stay away from these people. Google Victory Outreach abuse and you will find numerous reports from around the globe about ex VO members who have been intimidated and controlled with misappropriation of funds a common occurrence. The men's homes are punishment based in nature are centered on behaviour modification rather than educating and empowering the residents. There are good churches and addiction services in Auckland, these people are not one of them.
