12 STEPS

As you work through the 12 steps of recovery, you will begin to experience, through Christ and other group members, the true peace and serenity you have been seeking.

THE 12 STEPS AND THEIR BIBLICAL COMPARISONS

1

We admitted we were powerless over our addictions and compulsive behavior; that our lives had become unmanageable.

I know that nothing good lives 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 NIV

2

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

For it is God who is at work in you to will and to act according to his good purpose.

PHILIPPIANS 2:13 NIV

3

We made a decision to turn our life and our will over to the care of God.

Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship.

ROMANS 12:1 NIV

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 NIV

 

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 5:16a NIV

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 NIV

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 NIV

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 NIV

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 altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your offering there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to your brother; and then come and offer your gift.”

MATTHEW 5:23–24 NIV

10

We continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it.

So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall! 1 CORINTHIANS 10:12 NIV

11

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

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly.

COLOSSIANS 3:16a NIV

12

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

Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted.

GALATIANS 6:1 NIV

QUESTIONS?

WHAT ABOUT MY TEENAGER?

Real Hope for real problems. Youth in Recovery is for youth from ages 12-17 who are dealing with hurts, habits, or hang-ups. This support group is not "childcare" for older children. Youth must be able to state their problem (hurt, habit, or hang-up) and state what they hope to accomplish through God's help, the 12 steps, and the support of the friends, leaders, and sponsors in the Youth Recovery Group.

While we love everyone at Celebrate Recovery - Youth who can not identify and are not willing to work towards recovery from their hurts, habits, and hang-ups via the 12 steps and 8 principles are simply not allowed in this support group.

WHAT ABOUT MY KID?

Celebrate Recovery Kids is for kids from birth to 11 years old. These kids spend their evening in a safe and fun environment where they experience a semi-structured time of play, learning, and craft activities. Leaders work with children to help them feel loved in a safe and secure place.

WHAT IF MY CHILD IS IN SCHOOL?

This segment of Celebrate Recovery is for kids from kindergarten to sixth grade. This class is for children who have been exposed to hurts, habits and hang-ups through their home or some other kind of exposure. They meet in a relaxed environment where they experience fun driven games and activities that teach the same 12 step principles that are being taught that evening in the adult group time.

THINGS PARENTS SHOULD KNOW

1. Unless otherwise pre-arranged, it is assumed that every child in Celebrate Recovery Kids has a parent or guardian on campus participating in the Celebrate Recovery program. Parents may not leave campus for any length of time while children are in Celebrate Recovery Kids.
 

2. Celebrate Recovery Kids does not operate during dinner or Solid Rock Cafe. Kids can be checked in at 6:00pm and must be picked up by 8:15 pm.
 

3. Children of all ages are welcome after dinner. However, no children are allowed at Solid Rock Cafe.
