The origins of Celebrate Recovery
The Celebrate Recovery curriculum is based on the 12 Steps and 8 Principles. They offer us a clear path of salvation and discipleship; bringing hope, freedom, sobriety, healing, and the opportunity to give back one day at a time through our one and only true Higher Power, Jesus Christ.
The 12 Steps and the 8 Principles work seamlessly together, tying historical recovery to timeless Biblical teaching.
The model Celebrate Recovery Maryville follows has been used with great success all over the world! The National Celebrate Recovery launched more than 20 years ago at Saddleback Church in California under the guidance of John Baker. Celebrate Recovery is now in more than 29,000 churches worldwide. Our Maryville branch became nationally certified in May 2015.
