WHAT IS CELEBRATE RECOVERY?
Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered recovery community helping others celebrate freedom from all types of painful hurts, habits and hang-ups. Celebrate Recovery utilizes the Biblical truth that we need each other in order to grow spiritually and emotionally. Together we experience life-changing transformation as we learn to apply the Twelve Steps along with biblical comparisons and Eight Recovery Principles based on the teachings of Jesus. God’s healing power leads us to a life of serenity, joy and most importantly, a strong personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We learn to break free from our need to rely on our dysfunctional, compulsive, and unmanageable behaviors as a ‘fix’ for our pain, and turn to Christ, our personal, loving and forgiving Higher Power.
