Mission & Beliefs

Our Mission

The mission of Celebration Community Church is to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ, making people aware that God called each of us, as equals, into the service of God’s people. Our mission is one of empowering people to do justice in the world and to demonstrate compassion, as exemplified in the life of Jesus Christ.

What We Believe

We believe in Jesus Christ,
Who was promised to the people of Israel,
Who came in the flesh to dwell among us,
Who announced the coming of the rule of God,
Who gathered disciples and taught them,
Who died on the cross to free us from sin,
Who rose from the dead to give us life and hope,
Who reigns in heaven at the right hand of God,
Who comes to judge and bring justice to victory.

We Believe in God,
Who raised Jesus from the dead,
Who created and sustains the universe,
Who acts to deliver God’s people in times of need,
Who desires all people everywhere to be saved,
Who rules over the destiny of people and nations,
Who continues to love people even when they reject God.

We believe in the Holy Spirit,
Who is the form of God present in the church,
Who calls people to faith and obedience,
Who is the guarantee of our deliverance,
Who leads us to find God’s will in the Word,
Who assists those whom He renews in prayer,
Who guides us in discernment,
Who impels us to act together.

We believe God has made us God’s people,
To invite others to follow Christ,
To encourage one another to deeper commitment,
To proclaim forgiveness of sins and hope,
To reconcile people to God through word and deed,
To bear witness to the power of love over hate,
To proclaim Jesus the Lord over all,
To meet the daily tasks of life with purpose,
To suffer joyfully for the cause of right,
To the ends of the earth,
To the ends of the age,
To the praise of God’s glory. Amen.
