The purpose of Celebrate Recovery is to fellowship and celebrate God’s healing power in our lives through eight Recovery Principles and the twelve steps. This experience allows us to be changed.
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.
Many people think that recovery is for drug addicts and alcoholics- people whose lives seem out of control. But that’s not true. The Bible teaches that all of us have addictions in our lives. Sin is addicting, and the Bible says, “all have sinned.” Not one of us is perfect. We’ve all blown it; we’ve all made mistakes. We’ve hurt ourselves, we’ve hurt other people, and others have hurt us.
Because of sin, each of us needs repentance and recovery in order to live the way God intended.
The goal of the Celebrate Recovery program is not simply to recover from past sins and hurts. The goal is to become Christ-like in our character.
So no matter what situation you find yourself in, here’s the good news: regardless of whether your problem is emotional, financial, relational, spiritual, sexual or whatever, regardless of what you need help with, God wants to help you.
In Isaiah 57:18-19 God says of his people that he has seen how they acted but he will heal them, he will lead them and help them and will comfort those who mourn. So God know us. He knows where we came from, where we stand today, and where we’re going to be tomorrow.
The reality is that you’re not going to get well on your own. Persistent temptations must be team- tackled through community. We need each other. Trying to fix your problems on your own only makes them worse than they were when you started. But there is hope. God is ready and waiting to help you if you let him.
If you begin this journey of recovery, your life will change. You’ll experience freedom from your sinful hurts, habits and hang-ups as you give up control and allow Jesus to be Lord in every area of your life.
