In 1998, with clear direction from God and the blessing of their pastor, Stovall and Kerri Weems moved from Baton Rouge, LA to Jacksonville, FL to plant Celebration Church. With a love for people and a passion for building the local church, they saw Celebration grow from an initial launch team of only 7 people to a church that now has local, regional and international campuses.
After serving under the leadership of Pastor Stovall and Kerri Weems for nine years, Pastor Josh and Becca Turner began to feel God call them to plant a Celebration Church in Orlando, FL. Driven by a desire to build a church where people are led to experience a God first life, they moved to Orlando in order to see this passion become a reality. In 2014, Pastor Josh and Becca launched Celebration Church Orlando. Since then, they have seen God move in the lives of people throughout Central Florida and continue to see growth in people who come to Celebration Church Orlando to know God, find freedom, discover their purpose and make a difference.
Jesus gave the vision for His Church, also known as the Great Commission:
“Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” – Matthew 28:19-20
LEADING PEOPLE TO EXPERIENCE A GOD-FIRST LIFE
“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” Matthew 6:33

WHAT WE BELIEVE
Baptisms are an outward declaration of the decision you have made in your heart to surrender to Jesus. It provides a marker in your life that helps to anchor you when you face hard times in life. It becomes a reference point that God has saved you and is faithful to continue what he has started in your life. If you’ve recently made a decision to follow Jesus, getting water baptized is a great next step in your journey of faith.
