Our Beliefs

Statement of Faith

  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
  • We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the deity of Christ, in the virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
  • We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful men regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
  • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

    I was saved at the age of 15, came from a good Christian background raised in church. Fell away from God, got out of communion with God, tried to replace God with drugs, alcohol, and relationships. Praise God, his grace is sufficient. No pills, K2, Bath Salt, no synthetic can replace the authentic Jesus Christ.

    I grew up in Church but had let the things of this world overtake my life. Making bad decisions I used marijuana, alcohol, pills and meth. I would do anything to get high. I was nothing but a broken piece of clay but God did not throw me away. On September 2011, I rededicated my life to God. I could not imagine not being able to go to heaven and see Jesus and hear well done my good and faithful servant. I have been attending small group meetings at Tri-Cities Recovery for support.

  • Jamie

    On October 17, 2010, I attempted to take my own life. I was convinced that it was the only way to be free from the pain I was going through and what I was putting my family through. I have now chosen to make my Savior Jesus Christ not only my personal Savior but the Lord over my life.

    The things I destroyed through the sin in my life are now being restored thanks be to God, my loving wife and children. Tri-Cities Recovery has provided me with support and insight on strengthening my relationship with my Lord Jesus Christ.

  • Vickie

    I was raised in church, never made Jesus Christ as my Savior. Got hooked on pot, oxycontin, heroin, crystal meth, cocaine. Went to methadone clinic for 3 yrs. Diagnosed with Hepatitis C, was hooked on the needle for over 15 years.
    I gave my heart to Jesus, made him Lord of my life. He set me free, filled me with the Holy Spirit. I have been clean for 3 years and 6 months. I am healed of Hepatitis C. God has restored my heath, hope, peace and joy. I have been taking classes with Tri-Cities Recovery for the last 3 years.

  • Joseph

    I ended up strung out on bath salts. I was empty inside and I was on a self-destructive course and all I saw in my future was death, prison, or a psychiatric ward. I knew I was separated from God and that He was the only one who could possibly help me but I was convinced I was too far gone. With nothing left to lose I cried out to Jesus to save me and have mercy on me. Not only did He forgive me but I became born again and He has been at work in my life ever since.

    First and for most I want to thank God for saving me. I became dependent on pain pills and they took over my life. The pills controlled my life and I lost everything. I decided that I had nothing left to live for and tried to take my own life. By God’s grace he spared my life. God, my family and Tri-Cities recovery have helped me to break the chains of dependency. It is amazing what God will do in your life if you only turn your life over to him and allow his works to be done through you.

Take the first step towards a brighter future.
