Our Statement of Faith

 

J.O.Y. (Jesus Overcame for You) Celebration Church

 

Statement of Faith

 

Holy Bible

 

The Holy Bible, and only the Bible, is the authoritative Word of God. It alone is the final

authority in determining all doctrinal truths. In its original writing, it is inspired, infallible

and inerrant (2Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Proverbs 30:5; Romans 16:25-26).

 

Trinity

 

There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These

three are co-equal and co-eternal (I John 5:7; Genesis 1:26; Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19; Luke

1:35; Isaiah 9:6; Hebrews 3:7-11). 

 

Jesus Christ

 

Jesus Christ is God the Son, the second person of the Trinity. On earth, Jesus was 100% God and 100% man. He is the only man ever to have lived a sinless life. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, died on the cross for mankind and thus, atoned for our sins through the shedding of His blood. He rose from the dead on the third day according to the Scriptures, ascended to the right hand of the Father, and will return again in power and glory (John 1:1,14, 20:28; 1Timothy 3:16; Isaiah 9:6; Philippians 2:5-6;

1Timothy 2:5).

 

Virgin Birth

 

Jesus Christ was conceived by God the Father, through the Holy Spirit (the third person of

the Trinity) in the virgin Mary’s womb; therefore, He is the Son of God (Matthew 1:18, 25;

Luke 1:35; Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18, 23-25; Luke 1:27-35).

 

Redemption

 

Man was created good and upright, but by voluntary transgression he fell; his only hope of

redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God (Gen.1:26-31, 3:1-7; Romans 5:12-21).

 

Regeneration

 

For anyone to know God, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential (John 6:44,

65).

 

 

Salvation

 

We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ; His death, burial, and resurrection.

Salvation is a gift from God, not a result of our good works or of any human efforts.

(Ephesians 2:8-9; Galatians 2:16, 3:8; Titus 3:5; Romans 10:9-10; Acts 16:31; Hebrews

9:22).

 

The way to be sure of going to heaven is to be saved.  This is how to become saved:

 

You are saved when you repent of your sins through confessing with your mouth in the form of a prayer often called “the sinner’s prayer “or “the prayer of salvation” or a prayer that includes you confessing with your mouth and believing in your heart that Jesus is Lord, also, repenting of your sins, believing Jesus is God and asking Jesus into your heart to be your Lord and Savior.  When you are saved you are called a believer, a child of God, a member of the church and body of Christ and a Christian.  You are also written in the Lamb’s Book of Life and you will live in heaven with Jesus Christ forever. 

(Romans 10:9-10; Revelation 21:27; 1 Corinthians 12:27; Acts 16:31)

 

Upon salvation you are also what is called born again of the Holy Spirit, which means to be sealed with the Holy Spirit for eternity.  And you are guaranteed to go to heaven when you die.  Therefore, you cannot lose your salvation.  You are given the fruits of the Holy Spirit to live out your salvation in sanctification, growing and transforming to be like Jesus Christ every day providing you surrender your life to the Holy Spirit daily.  This is called Walking In The Holy Spirit. (John 3:7; Ephesians 1:13; Ephesians 5; Galatians 5:25)

 

There are no other works or ways, including baptism or taking communion that can take the place of saying this prayer of salvation to the Lord Jesus Christ to be born again and saved.  Only God knows if you truly are saved and man can tell by discerning and by your outward fruit from the Holy Spirit and your lifestyle. (John 14:6; Ephesians 2: 8-10; Acts16:31; John 3:16; Romans 19:9-10)

 

 

Repentance

 

Repentance is the commitment to turn away from sin in every area of our lives and to

follow Christ, which allows us to receive His redemption and to be regenerated by the Holy

Spirit. Thus, through repentance we receive forgiveness of sins and appropriate salvation

(Acts 2:21, 3:19; 1 John 1:9).

 

Sanctification

 

Sanctification is the ongoing process of yielding to God’s Word and His Spirit in order to complete the development of Christ’s character in us. It is through the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God that the Christian is enabled to live a godly life (1Thessalonians 4:3, 5:23; 2 Corinthians 3:18, 6:14-18, 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3, Romans

8:29, 12:1-2, Hebrews 2:11).

 

Jesus’ Blood

 

The Blood that Jesus Christ shed on the Cross of Calvary was sinless and is 100% sufficient

to cleanse mankind of all sin. Jesus allowed Himself to be punished for both our sinfulness

and our sins, enabling all those who believe to be free from the penalty of sin, which is

death (1 John 1:7; Revelation 1:5, 5:9; Colossians 1:20; Romans 3:10-12, 23, 5:9; John 1:29).

 

Jesus Christ Indwells All Believers

 

Christians are people who have invited the Lord Jesus Christ to come and live inside them

by His Holy Spirit. They relinquish the authority of their lives over to him thus making Jesus

the Lord of their life as well as Savior. They put their trust in what Jesus accomplished for

them when He died, was buried, and rose again from the dead (John 1:12; John 14:17, 23;

John 15:4; Romans 8:11; Revelations 3:20).

 

Baptism in the Holy Spirit

 

Given at Pentecost, it is the promise of the Father, sent by Jesus after His Ascension, to

empower the church to preach the Gospel throughout the whole earth (Joel 2:28-29;

Matthew 3:11; Mark 16:17; Acts 1:5, 2:1-4, 17, 38-39, 8:14-17, 10:38, 44-47, 11:15-17,

19:1-6).

The Gifts of the Holy Spirit

 

The Holy Spirit is manifested through a variety of spiritual gifts to build and sanctify the

church, demonstrate the validity of the resurrection, and confirm the power of the Gospel.

The Bible lists of these gifts are not necessarily exhaustive, and the gifts may occur in

various combinations. All believers are commanded to earnestly desire the manifestation of the gifts in their lives. These gifts always operate in harmony with the Scriptures and

should never be used in violation of Biblical parameters (Hebrews 2:4; Romans 1:11, 12 :4-

8; Ephesians 4:16; 2 Timothy 1:5-16, 4:14; 1 Corinthians 12:1-31, 14:1-40; 1 Peter 4:10).

 

The Church

 

The church is the Body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine

appointments for the fulfillment of Jesus’ great commission. Every person who is born of the Spirit is an integral part of the church as a member of the body of believers. There is a

spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Ephesians 1:22, 2:19-22; Hebrews

12:23; John 17:11, 20-23).

 

Healing of the Sick

 

Healing of the sick is illustrated in the life and ministry of Jesus, and included in the

commission of Jesus to His disciples. It is given as a sign which is to follow believers. It is

also a part of Jesus’ work on the Cross and one of the gifts of the Spirit (Psalm 103:2-3; Isaiah 53:5; Matthew 8:16-17; Mark 16:17-18; Acts 8:6-7; James 5:14-16; 1 Corinthians

12:9, 28; Romans 11:29). 

 

God’s Will for Provision

 

It is the Father’s will for believers to become whole, healthy and successful in all areas of

life. But because of the fall, many may not receive the full benefits of God’s will while on

Earth. That fact, though, should never prevent all believers from seeking the full benefits of

Christ’s provision in order to better serve others.

 

a. Spiritual (John 3:3-11; 2 Corinthians 5:17-21; Romans 10:9-10).

b. Mental and Emotional (2 Timothy 1:7, 2:11; Philippians 4:7-8; Romans 12:2; Isaiah

26:3). 

c. Physical (Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:17; 1 Peter 2:24).

d. Financial (Joshua 1:8; Malachi 3:10-11; Luke 6:38; 2 Corinthians 9:6-10; Deuteronomy

 28:1-14; Psalm 34:10, 84:11; Philippians 4:19).

 

Resurrection

 

Jesus Christ was physically resurrected from the dead in a glorified body three days after

His death on the cross. In addition, both the saved and the lost will be resurrected; they

that are saved to the resurrection of life and they that are lost to the resurrection of eternal

damnation (Luke 24:16, 36, 39; John 2:19-21, 20:26-28, 21:4; Acts 24:15; 1 Corinthians

15:42, 44; Philippians 1:21-23, 3:21).

 

Heaven

 

Heaven is the eternal dwelling place for all believers in the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Matthew

5:3, 12, 20, 6:20, 19:21, 25:34; John 17:24; 2 Corinthians 5:1; Hebrews 11:16; 1 Peter 1:4).

Hell

After living one life on earth, the unbelievers will be judged by God and sent to Hell where

they will be eternally tormented with the Devil and the Fallen Angels (Matthew 25:41;

Mark 9:43-48; Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 14:9-11, 20:12-15, 21:8).

 

Second Coming

 

Jesus Christ will physically and visibly return to earth for the second time to establish His

Kingdom. This will occur at a date undisclosed by the Scriptures (Matthew 24:30, 26:63-64;

Acts 1:9-11; 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-8; Revelation 1:7).

Article IV Ordinances
