Our Ministry

Love Lifted Me Recovery Ministries was born out of the boundless love of God, poured out upon a sin-stained people, brought about by our disobedience to God's will and goal for mankind. Whether that disobedience was by ignorance or willful rebellion, it has caused a life of pain, shame, loneliness and suffering. To the best of our abilities, we tried to cover our hurts by denial, substance abuse or some type of behavior which usually led to an even lower opinion of ourselves, and which rendered us useless to our Creator.

Love Lifted Me Recovery Ministries exists that men and women will reach their full potential in Christ Jesus by studying and putting into practice the principles set forth in the Bible, God's word (II Timothy 2:15). Our goal is to put into practice a loving Father's guidelines for a complete and joyful life, as set forth in His word, the Bible. We must expose our individual problems and face them, and repent of the sin they may have caused, so we as a people may be productive and equipped to share the healing and forgiving truths that God has provided for us through the shed blood of Jesus Christ.

I can truly state that when I had sunk to the lowest state of my human existence, the boundless love of God reached down and lifted me out of that pit, and set me on a path of recovery and restoration. That same love is being offered to us now, my friends, and that same God extends His love that we may recover from the shame, pain and hurts that we have endured, to be raised up and have our feet set on the solid Rock, that is Jesus Christ. Also, that we may become powerful by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, that we should become productive to the kingdom of God by sharing our faith, hope and security of eternal life with those who are still hurting in this sin-sick world. May God help us while we climb the steps of restoration in Christ Jesus together!

We believe the Bible is God's word, inspired by the Holy Spirit (II Peter 1:20-21). We enlist the "12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous" because we believe they work, and the originators first trusted in Jesus Christ as the Higher Power. We believe these steps were given to mankind that we may heal and aid in the healing of others. This healing is free to all who seek it, but it will take honesty and commitment to defeat the enemy. The word of God will be our text, Jesus Christ our foundation, and the Holy Spirit our motivator, strength and power. We seek to reach out to anyone who is willing to try to better their lives and become better equipped for service to the Lord and our fellow man.

In His Love and Service,

Pastor Tom Hooper
