Celebrate Recovery

Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered recovery program designed to help people address a variety of hurts, habits, and hang-ups.  Our weekly format includes worship, teaching, sharing recovery experiences and small group interaction.

Celebrate Recovery provides a safe environment for real life change in Jesus Christ, as participants personally work through specific Bible-based recovery steps in the context of a Christian community.  We open the door to recovery by sharing our experience, strength, and hope with one another, which leads to a greater capacity for accepting God’s grace and movement in our lives.

If all your pursuits to find life and to ease your pain have only led to more pain and emptiness, maybe it is time to consider something else.  Join us as we pursue real life in Jesus Christ and celebrate the recovery only He can bring.

Meeting Times:

Mondays at 6:30 p.m. on the Redfield Campus

Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. on the White Hall Campus

Coming soon to the Pine Bluff Campus

Twelve Steps and Their Biblical Comparisons’

Step 1:  We admitted we were powerless over our addictions and compulsive behaviors, that our lives had become unmanageable.

“For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature.

For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out.”  

(Romans 7:18)


Step 2:  We came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

“For it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.” 

(Philippians 2:13)


Step 3:  We made a decision to turn our lives and our wills over to the care of God.

“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, 

holy and pleasing to God – this is your true and proper worship.”  

(Romans 12:1)


Step 4:  We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.

“Let us examine our ways and test them, and let us return to the Lord.”  

(Lamentations 3:40)


Step 5:  We admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.

“Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.”

 (James 5:16)


Step 6:  We were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.

“Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.”

(James 4:10)


Step 7:  We humbly asked Him to remove all our shortcomings.

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins

and purify us from all unrighteousness.”

 (1 John 1:9)


Step 8:   We made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.

“Do to others as you would have them do to you.”

 (Luke 6:31)


Step 9:  We made direct amends to such people whenever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.

“Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the alter and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the alter.  First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift.”

 (Matthew 5:23-24)


Step 10:  We continued to take personal inventory and when we are wrong, promptly admitted it.

“So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall!”

 (1 Corinthians 10:12)


Step 11:  We sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and power to carry that out.

“Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly.”

 (Colossians 3:16)


Step 12: Having had a spiritual experience as the result of these steps, we try to carry this message to others and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

“Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently.  

But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted.”

 (Galatians 6:1)

Serenity Prayer

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, 

the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time, enjoying one moment at a time; accepting hardship as a pathway to peace; taking as Jesus did, this sinful world as it is; not as I would have it; trusting that you will make all things right if I surrender to Your will; so that I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with You forever in the next.
