An invitation from the Senior Pastor at First Baptist Church, Dr. Billy Compton.
Each one of us knows life can be difficult. Hurts, hang-ups, and habits have impacted all of us. Some have been hurt and others have done the hurting. Guilt, blame, and shame are our companions. Some are overwhelmed and shaped by addiction, anger, or depression. We can feel alone and hopeless, believing life will never change. Fear, worry, along with brokenness can fill our days. In all of these struggles, there is One who cares – it is Jesus Christ. He offers life, healing, restoration, and a renewed future. In Christ, we become willing to accept God's grace in working through our problems.
Celebrate Recovery (CR) is a Christ-centered, biblical based recovery ministry that points all participants to the redemptive and transformational power found in the Gospel. Come home to CR where you can experience life change, God's grace, and the healing power of the gospel in a personal relationship with Jesus. Join us every Monday night at CR – a safe place where you'll find help, hope, and healing. Welcome home!
