Celebrate Recovery is a recovery ministry, based on biblical principles, and a Christ-centered 12-step program. Our goal is to let God work through us — providing His healing power as we discover and heal from hurts, habits and hang-ups.
The experience of Celebrate Recovery is based on eight biblical principals found in the Beatitudes of Jesus Christ, which are part of his Sermon on the Mount. When we live faithfully into this foundational teaching of Jesus, God changes us—spiritually, relationally, emotionally and physically.
Celebrate Recovery provides a safe place for individuals to begin their journey of breaking free from denial and learning to live in God’s grace (2 Corinthians 12:9).
Recovery Issue Information
In Celebrate Recovery, we discover and heal from the hurts, habits and hang-ups that keep us from experiencing God and living well with others.
- Hurts: The feeling of being hurt is an emotional reaction to another person’s behavior, or to a disturbing situation (abandonment, co-dependency, divorce or relationship issues).
- Habits: A habit is an addiction to someone or something (food, gambling, sex, shopping, relationships, pornography, abuse, smoking, money, alcohol or drugs).
- Hang-ups: Negative mental attitudes that are used to cope with people or adversity (anger, depression, unforgiveness).
