Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered and Bible-based 12-step recovery program.  Over 700,000 people have gone through the Celebrate Recovery program in more than 17,000 churches worldwide. The purpose is to focus on God's healing power through fellowship with others by working the 12 steps and the 8 beatitude principles.

Freedom from Hurts, habits and hang-ups

Celebrate Recovery is a ministry for anyone who is interested in a Christ-centered recovery program that will enable them to recover from life's hurts, habits, and hang-ups. 


In physical healing, recovery refers to the process of moving from illness to wellness.  Our hurts, habits and hang-ups are like an illness and, using the tools of Celebrate Recovery, we begin to move toward wholeness.  Some might say "from bondage to freedom in Christ."  Others might say "from self-reliance to faith in Christ."


If you are not sure if Celebrate Recovery is for you, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do you have trouble setting limits with yourself?
  • Do you sacrifice your identity, desires or needs to make others feel good about themselves or to keep the peace?
  • Do you struggle feeling safe when you aren't in control?
  • Do you raise your voice to get your way?
  • Do you act kind on the outside but feel bitter on the inside?
  • Do you use food, sex, pornography, alcohol, relationships, drugs to cope with life problems?
  • Do you struggle with body image?
  • Do you love someone struggling with destructive behaviors such as drugs and alcohol?
  • Do you have a lot of self doubt?  
  • Are you scared to be alone?       
  • Do you become impatient easily and get annoyed quickly?        
  • Do you blame others for your problems?        
  • Have you ever felt that your life would be better if you didn't drink or use drugs?

If you have answered "yes" to any of these questions don't worry or give up hope. There's a way out through Christ's healing power.
