Victory Over Addictions: Encompass - Surrounded by Songs of Deliverance
When a person is addicted to a substance, activity, or state of mind, it becomes the center of his/her life. Negative consequences - even fear of death is not a deterrent from the physical and emotional attachment to these idols. The addicted one has found a pleasure so powerful and exercised that often they destroy everything in exchange for the experience. When they try to break free from their addictions, the shame and regrets of who they have become and what they have destroyed often become too difficult to endure. Sadly, therefore, they return to the death-giver of addiction. The good news is that Jesus came to set us free from slavery to sin and has accomplished it! (John 8:36). Learn the practical path to this victory in Christ over addiction that many coming to the center have already found.

The Christian Single:
Being a Christian single is challenging on many levels, but also is being married. Our culture is choosing the challenges of singleness over that of marriage. In 2014, for the first time since the federal government began tracking that data in 1976, there are now more single persons than married in the United States. Married is dying and singleness is on the rise. Yet, God declared from the beginning, "It is not good for man to be alone" and then, out of His goodness, created marriage. The New Testament specifically teaches that few people have been given the ability to handle singleness and that it is only to be pursued for divine purposes not selfish. Come learn how to pursue those purposes and experience the divine blessings and fulfillment of singleness while avoiding the temptations. But also come to learn how to pursue a spouse biblically if you don’t have the divine gift of singleness. God has solutions. Begin The Christian Single Today need new link
