What is Celebrate Recovery?
We've all been hurt by other people, we've hurt ourselves, and we've hurt others. As a result, every single one of us ends up with some sort of hurt, habit, or hang-up.
The question we all face is, "Where do we go from here?" The purpose of the Celebrate Recovery ministry at First Baptist Church Odessa is to fellowship and celebrate God's healing power in our lives the the "8 Recovery Principles." This experience allows us to "be changed".  We open the door by sharing our experiences, strengths, and hopes with one another. In addition, we become willing to accept God's grace in solving our lives' problems. By working and applying these biblical principles, we began to grow spiritually. We become free from our addictive, compulsive, and dysfunctional behaviors. This freedom creates peace, serenity, joy and most importantly a stronger personal relationship with God and others. As we progress through the program we discover our personal, loving, and forgiving Higher Power--Jesus Christ, the one and only true Higher Power.
