OVERCOMERS is a fellowship of men and women who have been affected either directly or indirectly by the abuse of alcohol and/or mood-altering chemicals. We believe that as we look to a loving God for help, and put into practice those principles for living which He has given in His Word, we shall find both the strength and freedom we need to live productive and happy lives. We strongly believe that our "higher power" is Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.
Our five-fold purpose, based directly upon the Word of God is set forth as follows:
(1) To provide fellowship in recovery
(2) To be and to live reconciled to God and His family
(3) To gain a better understanding of alcohol and mood-altering chemicals and the disease of addiction
(4) To be built up and strengthened in our faith in Christ
(5) To render dedicated service to others who are suffering as we once suffered.
We hold no opinions on any other matter not immediately bearing upon our recovery. While we do believe that Jesus is the Christ, the resurrected and living Son of God, we hold no corporate view concerning denominational preference.
We practice the suggested 12-Step recovery program of Alcoholics Anonymous, Al-Anon and other 12 Step groups because we believe these to be the practical application of life changing principles which are so clearly set forth in the Scriptures.
We welcome anyone who has a desire to stay clean and sober; anyone who has a desire to rise above the pain and turmoil caused by the addiction of a loved one; and anyone who is not opposed to our general method of recovery. We are here to share our experience, strength and hope with one another. The loving support and genuine caring of fellow members, coupled with daily prayer and the reading of Scripture, prepares us to experience total serenity in Christ, no matter what our outward circumstances might be.
