The International Christian Recovery Coalition-A Snapshot

The International Christian Recovery Coalition is an informal, international fellowship comprised of Christian leaders and workers in the recovery arena, together with Christians in recovery and others seeking the power and love of God as a means of recovering from the ravages of alcoholism, addictions, and other life-controlling problems.

Our Mission Statement

Mission Statement: "To glorify God by: (1) sharing accurate information with Christian leaders, workers, newcomers, and other participants in the recovery arena about the roles played by God, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Bible in early A.A.'s astonishing successes; and (2) showing Christian leaders and workers in the recovery arena how they can substantially enhance their effectiveness by including in their recovery efforts the ‘old-school’ principles and practices of First Century Christianity employed by the Christian pioneers of early Alcoholics Anonymous and the Christian Recovery Movement.”

Who We Are

An informal, worldwide fellowship of Christians who care about carrying an accurate, effective, message about the role that God, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Bible played in the origins, history, founding, original program, and astonishing successes of the early Alcoholics Anonymous “Christian fellowship” founded in Akron in 1935. And who also inform others about the role that God, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Bible can play today among those who want God’s help in overcoming, and reducing the impact of, alcoholism, addictions, and other life-controlling problems—and who are willing to go to any length to believe, seek, receive, and pass along the long-held good news about the power and love of Almighty God. Telling others the words that Peter spoke:

Acts 10:38-39a (KJV):
How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
And we are witnesses of all things which he did . . .

Acts 4:9, 10, 12 (KJV):
If we this day be examined of the good deed done unto the impotent man, by what means he is made whole;
Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
