Overcomer's Group builds people up, teaching them that they can walk in victory by overcoming their hurts, habits and hang-ups through focusing on Jesus and following in His Word by the power of the Holy Spirit. Other recovery groups teach that you are what you do, but Overcomer’s shows us that our true identity is found in Christ Jesus.
There are many secular programs today that are geared to help people who are experiencing addictions and pain in life. And while these programs have helped many, they condition people to accept that they will always be “an alcoholic”, or whatever problem they are dealing with. However, the Bible clearly teaches that through the Power of the Holy Spirit, we can be set completely free from hurts, habits, and hang-ups.
- Hurts – pain and or injury: physical, mental, emotional, spiritual
- Habits – a settled or regular tendency, especially one that is hard to give up
- Hang-ups – emotional problems, inhibitions or debilitating attitudes (i.e. unforgiveness, resentment, bitterness, etc.)
