Life with Christ is a Relationship not a Religion

Celebrate Recovery

 
 
Celebrate Recovery was founded in 1991 by Pastor John Baker of Saddleback Church 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. Other churches and some prisons implemented the program, and as of March 2004 more than 150,000 people are said to have participated.[1] At the Faith-Based and Community Initiative Conference in 2004, U.S. President George W. Bush praised Celebrate Recovery as being able to "change hearts" where government cannot.[2] 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 is conducted by Christians who have been through 12-step recovery.
