Freedom Celebration has been conducted at Cerritos College Stadium since 1998. We have hosted musical guests such as Crystal Lewis, Rebecca St. James, The Kry and Phil Keaggy. But more than anything, it has been an opportunity for the Gospel to go forth. Such speakers as Raul Ries, Greg Laurie and Miles McPherson have been used of the Lord to touch the hearts of many people. Our two-day celebration includes our musical guests and a special message from our guest speaker followed by a spectacular fireworks display.

Evangelism/Friend To Freedom

This event provides an evangelistic outreach to the unsaved through music and message that they might be confronted with the love of God and their need to receive Christ as their Lord and Savior. “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” (Matthew 28:19-20, KJV).


This event also is a guide to those who have received Christ yet have fallen away. This is an opportunity for them to remember what Christ has done for them and come to true repentance and restore the relationship they once had in Jesus Christ. “Brethren, if any of you do error from the truth, and one convert him; Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.” (James 5:19-20, KJV).


This event builds up and encourages the believers. “Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.” (1 Thessalonians 5:11, KJV).

Opportunity for Service

This event provides opportunity for service unto the Lord. It gives anyone a chance to help with a number of items to make this event happen. It also opens the door for many churches to work together and see God do an amazing work.

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” (Romans 12:1-2, KJV).
