The purpose of CELEBRATE RECOVERY is to celebrate God’s healing power in our lives through 8 recovery principles found in the Beatitudes. By working and applying these principles, we begin to grow spiritually and become willing to accept God’s grace in solving our problems.

This freedom creates peace, joy, serenity and most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with God and others.
