Celebrate Recovery

History

Celebrate Recovery started in Saddleback Church in California on 1991 through the vision of John Baker. John along side with Pastor Rick adapted the AA 12 steps and transformed them into Christ centred 12 steps with bible verses. Later made the 8 principals with biblical comparison, which is like the 12 steps. Since then Celebrate Recovery has grown not only in America but nation wide and parts of the world. By this vision many people have changed lives through the program, by working on recovery and fellowship with one another.
