Celebrate Recovery

Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-Centered recovery program created to help people overcome any struggle in life. It is a safe place where people can be honest about real problems–real hurts, habits, and hang-ups–and together experience real freedom and new life through God’s love and truth. Thousands of testimonies exist from people who acknowledged their need for healing and are now living in freedom. Read an excerpt from Rick Warren’s Message.

Isaiah 57:18-19 reveals a God who knows you and desires to heal you when you are hurt, lead you when you are confused, and comfort you when you are worried or afraid. However, when you play God in your own life, you cannot access His power and your hurts will become overwhelming.
The Bible clearly states “all have sinned.” It is my nature to sin, and it is yours too. None of us is untainted. Because of sin, we’ve all hurt ourselves, we’ve all hurt other people, and others have hurt us. This means each of us need repentance and recovery in order to live our lives the way God intended.

You’ve undoubtedly heard the expression that “time heals all wounds.” Unfortunately, it isn’t true. As a pastor I frequently talk with people who are still carrying hurts from 30 or 40 years ago. The truth is – time often makes things worse. Wounds that are left untended fester and spread infection throughout your entire body. Time only extends the pain if the problem isn’t dealt with.

What we need is a biblical and balanced program to help people overcome their hurts, habits and hang-ups. Celebrate Recovery is that program. Based on the actual words of Jesus rather than psychological theory, this recovery program is unique, and more effective in helping people change than anything else I’ve seen or heard of. Over the years I’ve witnessed how the Holy Spirit has used this program to transform literally thousands of lives at Saddleback Church and help people grow toward full Christ-like maturity.
