Our purpose is to Revive those who are dead in their addiction and to Restore them to a life of Godliness by providing positive pathways of growth and encouragement.
We accomplish this through large and small group meetings that emphasize the power of God’s redeeming love which transforms a person into a new creation in Christ Jesus.
We utilize a twelve-step program.
There are no prerequisites, only a desire to change and the admission that you are powerless to fight the addictions which ensnare you.
We welcome all and will walk together with you towards the goal of wholeness.
This year, commit to leaving the old behind. Learn from it and grow from it, but leave it.
Doing so will make changes in your life and create space for growth that you never thought possible !
. . . Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God's love and keep you strong.
Ephesian 3:17 NLT

12 Steps of Life Recovery
STEP #1 We admitted that we were powerless over our problems and that our lives had become unmanageable.
Step # 2 We came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
Step # 3 We made a decision to turn our wills and our lives over to the care of God.
Step # 4 We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
Step # 5 We admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
Step # 6 We were entirely ready to have God remove these defects of character.
Step # 7 We humbly asked God to remove our shortcomings.
Step # 8 We made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.
Step # 9 We made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
Step # 10 We continued to take personal inventory, and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it.
Step # 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 it out.
Step # 12 Having had a spiritual awakening as a result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to others and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

"Spiritual Journey Group"
The Spiritual Journey Group is a place to grow your Walk with God.
A group to study with and gain strength from God’s Word, and then apply it to our lives.
You will learn from the messages shared from the Bible, video episodes and personal
We welcome everyone who has a heart eager to learn more of God, of His love
and direction for you.
"Codependency Support Group"
Codependency is a relationship imbalance where one person enables another person's addiction, poor mental health, immaturity, irresponsibility, or under-achievement. Among the core characteristics of codependency is an "excessive" reliance on other people for approval and a sense of identity.
Codependents expend energy enabling, fixing, controlling, and obsessively rescuing another person and in so doing neglect to care for themselves. Codependency is about normal behaviors taken too far.
In our support group, with God’s help, we learn how to “let go”, detach with love, set boundaries, and take care of ourselves. In so doing, we learn how to lessen and eventually stop the emotional pain.
"Sexual Integrity Support Group for Men"
Today's world is full of roads that men could take that lead them down the path of sexual immorality.
This group encourages men to stay pure and Godly despite the temptations that abound.
Life skills and behaviors are discussed with a focus on change.
"If we are ever going to get free, we must first explore our makeup as men and why our sensual culture is so compelling to us in spite of our love for Christ. Only then will we be able to defend ourselves from sexual addiction".
God, grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change,
courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time,
enjoying one moment at a time;
accepting hardship as a pathway to peace;
taking, as Jesus did,
this sinful world as it is,
not as I would have it;
trusting that You will make all things right
if I surrender to Your will;
so that I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with You forever in the next.
Join us every Thursday at 6:00pm in the Loft at Cornerstone Ministries.
