We meet every Friday 7-8pm!
What is THE REPAIRER OF THE BREACH?
The Repairer of the Breach is a fellowship of Men and Women who desire to overcome problems, compulsive behaviors, and addictions. Our goal is to achieve and maintain sobriety through sound judgment and a sound mind. We are here to learn to do this Spiritually, Emotionally, and Physically.
We relate the Word of God to the 12 steps and share our experience, strength, and hope with each other to grow in the knowledge of God. The time together will help us to follow Jesus, saved and sober. You will find this program helpful if an addiction or life struggle is holding you back from being who God created you to be.
This fellowship is a means to conquering those struggles, one day at a time, with a spiritual mentor/sponsor, through the love of Jesus Christ.
How is TROTB different from other recovery or 12 Step Programs?
- We are Christ-centered and focused.
- We use the KJV Life Recovery Bible.
- We discuss scripture related to the traditional 12 Steps.
- We highly encourage and suggest sponsorship.
The TWELVE STEPS and SCRIPTURES
1.) We admit we are powerless over our problems, compulsive behaviors, and addictions and our lives have become unmanageable.
Psalms 38:8-10 I am feeble and sore broken: I have roared by reason of the disquietness of my heart. Lord, all my desire is before thee; and my groaning is not hid from thee. My heart panteth, my strength faileth me: as for the light of mine eyes, it also is gone from me.
Romans 7:18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.
2.) We come to believe that God, through Jesus Christ, can restore us to sanity.
Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Philippians 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
1 John 5:13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
3.) We make a decision to turn our will and our lives over to God through Jesus Christ.
Psalms 143:10 Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness.
4.) We make a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
Lamentations 3:40 Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to the LORD.
Psalms 19:12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.
5.) We admit to God, to ourselves, and another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
James 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
6.) We commit ourselves to God and are entirely ready for Him to remove all of these defects of character.
James 4:10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
7.) We humbly ask God to renew our minds and remove our shortcomings.
Psalms 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
8.) We make a list of all the persons we have harmed and become willing to make amends to them all.
Ephesians 4:32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgive you.
9.) We make direct amends wherever possible except when to do so would injure them or others.
Matthew 5:23-24 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.
10.) We continue to take personal inventory and when we are wrong promptly admit it.
Acts 24:16 And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offence toward God, and toward men.
11.) We seek to know Christ more intimately through prayer and meditation, praying only for knowledge of His will and the power to carry that out.
Psalms 19:14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
Psalms 119:2 Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.
12.) Having had a spiritual awakening as a result of these steps, we try to carry this message of Christ’s grace and restoration power to everyone, especially the addicted, and to practice these principals in all our affairs.
1 Samuel 12:23 Moreover as for me, God forbid that I should sin against the LORD in ceasing to pray for you: but I will teach you the good and the right way.
- Our common welfare should come first; personal recovery depends on unity in Christ of all members of The Repairer of the Breach.
- There is but one ultimate authority, Our Loving God, as shown to us through Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit expresses Himself through The Word and our group as we share our experience, His strength, and hope. Our leaders are but trusted servants; they do not govern.
- The only requirement for group membership is the desire to stop addictions and compulsive behaviors, and to be transformed and healed by Almighty God.
- This Addictions Ministry and Meeting is under leadership of First Bible Baptist Church.
- The Primary Purpose of The Repairer of the Breach is to carry God’s message to the still sick and suffering for Recovery through the Word of God and His 12 Steps.
- This Ministry remains non-professional, but our service may include special workers to come and share more helpful knowledge.
- This Ministry’s public relations policy is based on attraction rather than promotion. We maintain personal anonymity which is crucial to the success of this group. It reminds us to place Christ and the Principles of the 12 Steps before personalities.
