TWO ARE BETTER THAN ONE – Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 “Two are better off than one, because together they can work more effectively. If one of them falls down, the other one can help him up. But if someone is alone, there is no one to help him… Two men can resist an attack that would defeat one man alone.”
The Purpose of Celebrate Recovery
The purpose of the Celebrate Recovery ministry at Grace Point Community Church is to fellowship and celebrate God’s healing power in our lives through the 12 Steps and Recovery Principles. This experience allows us to “be changed.” We open the door by sharing our experiences, strengths and hope with one another. In addition, we become willing to accept God’s grace in solving our lives’ hurts, habits & hangups.
By working and applying these Biblical Principles, we begin to grow spiritually. We become free from our addictive, compulsive, and dysfunctional behaviors. This freedom creates peace, serenity, joy, and most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with God and others.
As we progress through the program we discover our personal, loving and forgiving Higher Power—Jesus Christ.
