The purpose of Celebrate Recovery is to fellowship and celebrate God's healing power in our lives through the 8 recovery principles and the Christ-centered 12 steps. We open the door by sharing our experience, strengths and hopes with one another. In addition we become willing to accept God's grace in solving our life problems.
By working the steps and applying their Biblical principles, we begin to grow spiritually. We become free from our addicitive, compulsive and dysfunctional behaviors. This freedom creates peace, serenity, joy, and most importantly, a stronger relationship with God and others.
Celebrate Recovery is a recovery program based on eight principles from the Beatitudes. It is a national movement.
2 Corinthians 12:9 says "But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness." It is my nature to sin, and it is yours, too. None of us is untainted. Because of sin, we've all hurt ourselves, we've hurt other people, and others have hurt us. This means each of us needs repentance and recovery in order to live our lives the way God intended.
Celebrate Recovery is about people seeking freedom from all kinds of sinful habits, hang-ups, and hurts as they allow Jesus to be Lord in every area of their lives.
