What is Celebrate Recovery?
CR is a Bible-based, Christ-Centered recovery program that ministers to those who struggle with life's "hurts, habits, and hang-ups." CR provides a safe environment for real life change as participants work through specific Biblically-based recovery principles and steps in the context of Christian community. We need each other to grow personally and spiritually!
The 8 CR principles are based on the Beatitudes. CR ministers through the traditional means of grace: worship, Bible study, prayer, personal testimony, and fellowship. Many of the features of the well-known 12 Step recovery programs are incorporated in CR, including weekly meetings, sharing our stories, small groups, one-on-one sponsorship, accountability partners, taking a searching and fearless moral inventory, and making amends for wrongs done in the past.
However, CR goes far beyond any secular recovery program by explicitly naming the Lord Jesus Christ as the one and only "higher power," and by encouraging forgiveness for wrongs done to us. The purpose of CR is to fellowship together and celebrate God's healing power in our lives through the 12 Steps and The 8 Recovery Principles.
We open the door by sharing our experiences, strength, and hope with one another. We become willing to place our trust in God's grace for solving our problems, and God graciously gives us everything we need to find victory over our struggles with abuse, anger, grief, alcohol, gambling, drugs, depression, guilt, shame, financial loss, divorce, dysfunctional families, sexual problems, eating disorders, and much more!
Yes, we can actually celebrate our recovery form life's HURTS, HABITS, and HANG-UPS!
