Celebration Community Church is an autonomous, self-governing church. However, our pastors are held accountable by the Assemblies of God. By issuing the credentials for our pastors, their moral, ethical, and theological standards are ensured for the partners and friends of Celebration. The Assemblies of God network is loosely affiliated - a cooperative fellowship - that allows churches and ministers to pursue their individual expressions and purposes. For more information about this network of churches and ministers, check out www.ag.org.

In the essential beliefs, we have UNITY.
“There is one Body and one Spirit… there is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and one God and Father of us all…” (Ephesians 4:4-6)
In the non-essential beliefs, we have LIBERTY.

“Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters… Who are you to judge… Each of us will give an account of himself to God… So whatever you believe about these things, keep between yourself and God.” (Romans 14:1, 4, 12, 22)
In all our beliefs, we have LOVE.

“If I hold in my mind not only all human knowledge, but also the very secrets of God, and if I have the faith that can move mountains – but have no love, I amount to nothing at all.” (1 Corinthians 13:2 (Ph)
