What Is Celebrate Recovery?
The Bible tells us, "that all have sinned." It is our nature to sin and because of this we have all hurt ourselves and other people, and have been hurt by others. The expression "time heals all wounds" is unfortunately not true. Time prolongs the pain if we do not deal with the problem. Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered ministry that gives people the resources and relationships to help recover from life's hurts, habits, and hang-ups. This ministry is for anyone struggling with past or current dysfunctions or compulsions, whether they are affecting their own life or the lives of those around them. The purpose of Celebrate Recovery is to fellowship and celebrate God's healing power in our lives through the Eight Recovery Principles found in the Beatitudes and Christ-Centered Twelve Steps. This experience allows us to be changed. By working the Christ-centered steps and applying their biblical principles, we begin to grow spiritually. We become free from our addictive, compulsive and dysfunctional behaviors. This freedom creates peace, serenity, joy, and most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with God, others, and our Higher Power Jesus Christ the one and only true Higher Power.
