About Celebration

We are a faith-based church through the Assemblies of God. We are a diverse church with multiple campuses and ministries to reach those from every background. As a multi-generational church, we have something for every age.

Jesus

The turning point, the difference-maker, the cornerstone. Jesus Christ Sets Christianity apart from every other religion, philosophy and belief system. What you believe about Jesus really does matter!

He is our Savior

The problem is sin - sin separates us from God. Not only does it separate us, but the price, the debt to be paid for sin is death. Jesus came and lived on this earth without sin, something no man has ever done or could ever do. He did this so that He could pay our debt and take our death on Himself at the Cross. Jesus now offers free and complete forgiveness of sin to anyone who believes that He is who He said He was and places their trust in Him. This forgiveness is not conditional - nothing we do or don't do changes it. It is simply a gift from a God who created us to live in relationship with Him. This is why we call Him Savior.

He is our Risen Lord

When we say that Jesus is "risen" we actually mean that literally. Yes, Jesus died on the Cross, but after three days God raised His spirit from the dead and transformed His physical body. Jesus then appeared to over 500 witnesses over several weeks before ascending to Heaven to rule and reign at the right hand of God. It is Jesus' resurrection that also raises us out of spiritual death in our own lives and fills us with the life of God. Jesus' disciples had the privilege of seeing Him raised back to life in person, but Jesus said about us, "Blessed are those who have not seen, yet believe."

He is our Friend

Jesus calls us friends, not slaves or servants. He asks us to cast all our cares on Him because He cares for us. He promises to never leave or forsake us. He makes Himself available to anyone who believes in Him through the Holy Spirit - our Comforter, Counselor and Friend. Jesus continually shapes and molds all those who abide in Him, making us more and more like Him each day. He enables us to understand and live out His perfect will for our lives so that we can live a life of abundance. He is truly a Friend to us.

He is God

Jesus was more than just a loving man or a good teacher. During His earthly life He continually proclaimed His divinity and His unity with God as His Son. The Bible says that He was with God and He was God from before the beginning of time (John 1). Jesus coming to this earth was God putting on humanity in order to set this world free from the bondage of sin. He didn't trade being God for being a man, but He was and continues to exist as both fully God and fully man.

What We Believe

Our mission at Celebration Church is to help people begin and develop authentic, transformational relationships with Christ.

About the Bible

we believe that the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired by God, are the revelation of God to man, and are the infallible, authoritative rule for our faith and conduct (2 Tim. 3:15-17; 1 Thess. 2:13; 2 Peter 1:21).

About God

We believe in one Triune God, eternally existing in three persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is eternally self-existent, the Creator of heaven and earth and the Redeemer of mankind (Deut. 6:4; Isaiah 43:10-11; Matt. 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14).

About Jesus Christ

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God became a man without ceasing to be God, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born by the virgin Mary (Matt. 1:23; Luke 1:31, 35). He lived a sinless life and revealed both the character and will of God through His earthly miracles (Acts 2:22; Acts 10:38). He redeemed humanity from sin through His death on the Cross, a substitutionary sacrifice (1 Cor. 15:3; 2 Cor. 5:21), and after three days was bodily resurrected from the dead (Matt. 28:6; Luke 24:39; 1 Cor. 15:4), ascended to heaven, and has been exalted to the right hand of God where acts as our High Priest - our representative, intercessor and advocate (Acts 1:9-11; Rom. 8:34; 1 John 2:1-2).

About Man

We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but that through Adam's sin humanity fell, inherited a sinful nature, and became alienated from God. This sin led not only to physical death, but also to spiritual death. Because of sin, mankind required God's divine intervention to remedy his lost and fallen condition (Gen. 1:26-27; Gen. 2:17; Rom. 3:23; Rom. 5:12-19; Eph. 2:1-5).

About Salvation

We believe that salvation is a gift from God made possible by the shed blood of Jesus Christ at Calvary. This gift which provides forgiveness for sin is received by grace, not human effort, through repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ (Luke 24:47; Rom. 10:9-10; Eph. 2:8-9; Eph. 1:7). The outward evidence of this repentance and faith is a life of righteousness and holiness preceding from a newly regenerated spirit (Titus 3:5-7; Eph. 4:24). This kind of separation from sin and dedication to God is called Sanctification - a distinct and necessary work that occurs when a person spiritually identifies with the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Sanctification continues as a lifelong, daily process of surrender to the Lordship of Jesus and the working of the Holy Spirit (Rom. 12:1-2; 1 Thess. 5:23; Heb. 13:12; Rom. 6:1-11; Gal. 2:20; Phil. 2:12-13).

About the Church and It's Mission

We believe that the Church is the Body and bride of Christ, a spiritual organism made up of all believers throughout time who have been born again by the Spirit. (Eph. 1:22-23; Eph. 5:25-27; 2 Cor. 11:2). Each member plays an integral role in God's plan to build up a body of saints that have been perfected in the image of His Son. To this end, God has divinely called and ordained specific individuals to lead the Church in spiritual growth and to further its mission - the proclamation of the Good News to every person in the earth (1 Cor. 12:12-14; Eph. 4:11-16; Acts 1:8; Matt. 28:19-20).

About the Ordinances of the Church

we believe and practice two ordinances - 1) Water baptism by immersion after repentance as a sign of faith in and identification with Christ's death and resurrection, and 2) Holy Communion (the Lord's Supper), a symbolic remembrance of Christ's suffering and death and an expression of our position as partakers of the divine nature and co-heirs with Christ (Matt. 28:19; Rom. 6:4; 1 Cor. 11:23-26; 2 Peter 1:4; Rom. 8:17).

About Holy Spirit Baptism

We believe that the baptism of the Holy Spirit is a promise of the Father, a gift to empower believers for life and provide additional gifts to do the work of the ministry (Luke 11:13; Acts 1:4; Acts 1:8; 1 Cor. 12). This is a special and distinct experience following salvation which is physically evidenced by 'speaking with other tongues,' an experience referenced throughout Acts and the Epistles (Acts 2:4; Acts 8:12-17; Acts 11:14-16).

About Divine Healing

We believe that divine healing of the sick is a privilege for all believers provided for in Christ's death and resurrection. It is an integral part of the gospel and the function of the Body of Christ. We believe that God hears and answers, according to His will, the prayer offered in faith for those who are sick and afflicted (Isaiah 53:4-5; Luke 4:18-19; Matt. 8:16-17; 1 John 5:14-15; James 5:14-16).

About the Return of Christ

We believe in 'the Blessed Hope,' the personal, imminent coming of the Lord Jesus Christ when all believers, both dead and alive, will rise to meet the Lord and live with him forever (1 Thess. 4:14-17; Titus 2:13). He will later return with all His saints to rule on the earth for 1,000 years of peace (Matt. 24:30; Rev. 20:1-4). After this 'Millennial Reign' a final judgment will take place in which all those who have rejected Christ will be judged for their sin and consigned to an eternity of punishment. All who placed their faith in Jesus will be spared from this punishment and will look forward to a New Heaven and a New Earth where they will dwell and reign with Christ forever (Matt. 25:46; Rev. 20:11-15; 2 Peter 3:13; Rev. 21-22).
