What is Celebrate Recovery?

Healing for life's hurts, habits, and hang-ups.


Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered recovery program with foundations firmly established in Biblical truth. It was designed as a program to help those struggling with hurts, habits, and hang-ups by showing them the loving power of Jesus Christ through a recovery process. Celebrate Recovery offers participants a clear path of salvation and discipleship; bringing hope, freedom, sobriety, and healing through Jesus Christ. Whether it be addiction, anxiety, alcoholism, abuse, abandonment or anything else, there is no problem too big or too small that we cannot face together as a Celebrate Recovery community. 

"I have enjoyed and found every week at Celebrate Recovery to be encouraging and helpful in my struggles. Celebrate Recovery has helped me to grow in surrendering things more to the Lord and also to learn how to continue to work through my anxiety and self image issues. I have been able to have more of a support system. We are able to share scripture and remind each other of what the Bible says about our struggles. It has been great getting to learn more about the Lord and build friendships and support."

What is a hurt, habit, or hangup?

A hurt, habit or hang-up is something in you or your life that hinders your walk with God and others.


The feeling of being hurt is an emotional reaction to another person’s behavior or to a disturbing situation.(Abuse, abandonment, codependency, divorce, relationship issues, etc.)


A habit is an addiction to someone or something. (Alcoholism, drugs, food, gambling, shopping, smoking, etc.)


Hang-ups are negative mental attitudes that are used to cope with people or adversity.(Anger, depression, fear, unforgiveness, etc.)

8 Principles of 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. “Happy are those who know that they are spiritually poor.” Matthew 5:3a


Earnestly believe that God exists, that I matter to Him and that He has the power to help me recover. “Happy are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” Matthew 5:4


Consciously choose to commit all my life and will to Christ’s care and control. “Happy are the meek.” Matthew 5:5a


Openly examine and confess my faults to myself, to God, and to someone I trust. “Happy are the pure in heart.” Matthew 5:8a


Voluntarily submit to any and all changes God wants to make in my life and humbly ask Him to remove my character defects. “Happy are those whose greatest desire is to do what God requires” Matthew 5:6a


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. “Happy are the merciful.” Matthew 5:7a; “Happy are the peacemakers” Matthew 5:9


Reserve a daily 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.


Yield myself to God to be used to bring this Good News to others, both by my example and my words. “Happy are those who are persecuted because they do what God requires.” Matthew 5:10
