A Christ-Centered Recovery Program
“Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” – James 5:16
The purpose of the Celebrate Recovery ministry is to fellowship and celebrate God´s healing power in our lives through the “8 Recovery Principles.” This experience allows us to “be changed.” We open the door by sharing our experiences, strengths and hopes with one another. In addition, we become willing to accept God´s grace in solving our lives´ problems. By working and applying these 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 and others. As we progress through the program we discover our personal, loving and forgiving Higher Power – Jesus Christ, the one and only true Higher Power.
– Pastor John Baker, Founder of Celebrate Recovery
We meet every Thursday evening at 7:00 p.m. for Large Group: men and women meet together for worship and teaching or testimony. After the Large Group, we separate into Men’s and Women’s Small Groups.
What is a Step Study?
“Let us examine our ways and test them, and let us return to the LORD.” – Lamentations 3:40
We currently have one men’s and one women’s Step Study going.
A Celebrate Recovery Step Study is a fellowship and celebration of God’s healing power in our lives through the practice of the twelve steps. If you have a hurt, hang-up, or habit that is harming your life and your relationship with God or you just want a deeper relationship with God, we invite you to take the first step in celebrating your recovery. The first step s the desire to change.
By working the steps and applying their Biblical principles, we begin to grow spiritually. We become willing to accept God’s grace in solving our lives’ problems. This freedom creates peace, serenity, joy, and most importantly a stronger personal relationship with God and others.
