Celebrate Recovery IS:

An anonymous, confidential, safe place to share your experience, strength, and hope with others who are struggling with the same issues.

A leader who has gone through a similar hurt, habit, or hang-up facilitates the group as it focuses on a particular step each week.

• A tried-and-true plan of recovery for whatever struggle you are facing.

• An opportunity to share what Jesus Christ has done in your life.

• A place to be who you are and celebrate God’s Love for you!

Celebrate Recovery is NOT:

A place to judge others.

• A place to “fix” others.

• A place to engage in gossip.

• A place to feel shame or have secrets.

• A place to meet dating partners


To help ourselves and others be set free with the truth and power of Jesus through Celebrate Recovery

About Celebrate Recovery


Sunday morning at church. Perfectly primped, prepared, and ready to meet and greet others with that oh-so-proper smile on the face, hiding the turmoil underneath. Putting on the mask of perfection that hides the depression, anxiety, or addiction that we don't want others to see at church because we've been taught that God's house is not the place to air "dirty laundry." We walk into the sanctuary and only half-heartedly worship the Father because our minds are clouded and our attention is swayed by the weight of our problems. But church is not meant to be a hotel for saints…it was designed to be a hospital for sinners! Jesus called believers to reach out to each other to empower recovery from life's hurts, habits, and hang-ups. To this end, GABC has joined over 35,000 churches around the world in offering CELEBRATE RECOVERY (CR), a Christ-centered, Bible-based, 8 principle, 12-step recovery program designed to help people connect with God and others in a fresh, new way and experience healing and hope. Look around you. Chances are, you know someone who could benefit from the power of participation in CELEBRATE RECOVERY. Perhaps that someone is YOU!

Regardless of the problem—whether emotional, financial, spiritual, relational, sexual, chemical, or other—the steps to recovery are the same. Each of us needs repentance and recovery in order to live our lives the way God intended. "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God...The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 3:23 and 6:23)."
