At First Baptist Church, the purpose of our Celebrate Recovery ministry is to fellowship and celebrate God´s healing power in our lives through 12 Steps and the “8 Recovery Principles.” This allows us to “be changed” by sharing experiences, strengths and hopes with one another. We become willing to accept God´s grace in our lives and begin to grow spiritually, becoming free from our addictive, compulsive and dysfunctional behaviors. This freedom creates a stronger personal relationship with God and others. We then discover our personal, loving and forgiving Higher Power – Jesus Christ.
While CR has a most obvious application for those who are in recovery from addictions to drugs and/or alcohol, it is FAR MORE than just that. CR is for all people who are searching for support in overcoming whatever hurts, habits or hang-ups that they may have. People from all walks of life will find help for issues with divorce, abusive situations, gambling disorders, pornography, enabling, or as Paul described it-“the old sin nature”.
We encourage all to come and be a part of our ministry as we seek healing and try to help others who are “in the same boat”.
