Celebrate Recovery assist individuals with the goal of overcoming life's issues with a twelve-step program based on Christian principles. This recovery program addresses all types of habits, hurts and hang-ups. The purpose is to focus on God’s healing power through fellowship with others and by working the 12 Steps and the 8 Beatitude Principles.

Celebrate Recovery teaches the Twelve Steps by relating them to Biblical verses.

  1. We admit that we are powerless over our addictions and compulsive behaviors. That our lives have become unmanageable. (Romans 7:18 I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out.)
  2. We believe that a power greater than ourselves can restore us to sanity. (Philippians 2:13 For it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose.)
  3. We have made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God. (Romans 12:1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God--this is your spiritual act of worship.)
  4. We have made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves. (Lamentations 3:40 Let us examine our ways and test them, and let us return to the LORD.)
  5. We have admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being, the exact nature of our wrongs. (James 5:16a Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.)
  6. We are entirely ready for God to remove all these defects of character. (James 4:10 Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.)
  7. We humbly asked Him to remove all our shortcomings. (1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.)
  8. We have made a list of all persons we have harmed and are willing to make amends to them all. (Luke 6:31 Do to others as you would have them do to you.)
  9. We made, or will make direct amends to such people whenever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others. (Matthew 5:23-24 Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to your brother; then come and offer your gift.)
  10. We have continued to take personal inventory and when we are wrong, promptly admit it. (1 Corinthians 10:12 So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don't fall!)
  11. We have sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and power to carry that out. (Colossians 3:16a Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly.)
  12. Having had a spiritual experience as the result of these steps, we seek to carry this message to others, and practice these principles in all our affairs. (Galatians 6:1 Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted.)
