At Riverbluff we teach that living things grow. Since we have been given a “do over” in Christ, we believe that we are supposed to change the way we live to be more like our leader, Jesus. Here’s the way the Bible describes it:
“God knew what he was doing from the very beginning. He decided from the outset to shape the lives of those who love Him along the same lines as the life of His Son. The Son stands first in the line of humanity He restored. We see the original and intended shape of our lives there in Him.”
Romans 8:29 The Message
The Biblical term for it is Christlikeness. We call it becoming a Fully Devoted Follower of Jesus: an FDFJ!
A Fully Devoted Follower of Jesus is not a perfect person but someone who has set the heart to be like Jesus, who is practicing the spiritual disciplines required to become more like Him, and is on the way to his/her destiny. Riverbluff offers many different contexts to become the Follower Jesus calls you to be!

We want others to think we have everything “under control.” The truth is, whatever you can’t talk about is already out of control in your life; problems with your finances, marriage, kids, thoughts, sexuality, secret habits, spending, or anything else. What are you pretending isn’t a problem in your life? What are you afraid to talk about? YOU ARE NOT ALONE—Celebrate Recovery is here to help you. If you are ready to take your first step toward freedom from your hurts, habits or hang-ups, come to Celebrate Recovery. The people there will not judge you, but give you unconditional love.
