Celebrate Recovery

Welcome to Celebrate Recovery

Where we learn to deal with Hurts, Habits & Hung-ups.

Celebrate Recovery(CR) is a Christ based recovery program, anchored in the bible. There are recovery programs that have been used over time. The difference between CR and others is that, we are clear about who our Higher Power is. We are structured around 12 steps and 8 principles based on the beatitudes. CR was founded in 2001 at Saddleback Church, by Pastor John Baker, a recovering Alcoholic. The church Lead Pastor Rick Warren is the author of the best seller purpose driven life.
The Bible clearly states “all have sinned.” It is our nature to sin. None of us is untainted. Because of sin, we’ve all hurt ourselves, we’ve all hurt other people, and others have hurt us. These lead to us carrying the hurts, that give us hang ups that turn into habits. These fashion our character which simply put is; the simple things we do every day the same way. This means each of us needs repentance and recovery, in order to live our lives the way God intended.
