What is Celebrate Recovery?
A biblical and balanced program to help people overcome their hurts, habits and hang-ups. Based on the actual words of Jesus rather than psychological theory, our recovery program is unique, and more effective in helping people change than anything else we have seen or heard of.
This recovery program is forward-looking. Rather than wallowing in the past, or dredging up and rehearsing painful memories over and over, Celebrate Recovery focuses on the future. Regardless of what has already happened, the solution is to start making wise choices now and depend on Christ’s power to help me make those changes.
Celebrate Recovery is a "large umbrella" program under which a limitless number of issues can be dealt with including, eating disorders, sexual addiciction, depression, cutting, abuse, post-traumatic stress disorder, and addiction issues.
We do not believe that a program is the answer to healing and victory of these large and life consuming challenges. We believe that Celebrate Recovery will introduce members to Jesus who is the answer to all of life’s problems.

CELEBRATE RECOVERY’S EIGHT RECOVERY PRINCIPLES
The Road to Recovery Based on the Beatitudes:
Realize I’m not God; I admit that I am powerless to control my tendency to do the wrong thing and that my life is unmanageable.
Principle 1 (Step 1)
“Happy are those who know that they are spiritually poor.” Earnestly believe that God exists, that I matter to Him and that He has the power to help me recover.
Principle 2 (Step 2)
“Happy are those how mourn, for they shall be comforted.”
Consciously choose to commit all my life and will to Christ’s care and control.
Principle 3 (Step 3)
“Happy are the meek.” Openly examine and confess my faults to myself, to God, and to someone I trust.
Principle 4 (Steps 4 and 5)
“Happy are the pure in heart.” Voluntarily submit to any and all changes God wants to make in my life and humbly ask Him to remove my character defects.
Principle 5 (Steps 6 and 7)
“Happy are those whose greatest desire is to do what God requires” Evaluate all my relationships. Offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me and make amends for harm I’ve done to others when possible, except when to do so would harm them or others.
Principle 6 (Steps 8 and 9)
“Happy are the merciful.” “Happy are the peacemakers” Reserve a time with God for self-examination, Bible reading, and prayer in order to know God and His will for my life and to gain the power to follow His will.
Principle 7 (Steps 10 and 11)
Yield myself to God to be used to bring this Good News to others, both by my example and my words.
Principle 8 (Step 12)
“Happy are those who are persecuted because they do what God requires.”
