Domestic Violence is the number 1 cause of injury to women ages 15 to 44. 72% of all men and 28% of all women view internet pornography. Internet pornography is associated with 75% of all divorces. 50% of Christian men and 34% of Christian women are addicted to pornography. 47% of Christian families report pornography as being a problem in their home. 60% of Christian Ministers intentionally view online pornography.

Regardless of your circumstance, there’s hope. God loves you and He created you in His image. There’s nothing you can do to make Him stop loving you. He wants you whole, He wants you back. If you’ve been abused, we’re here for you. If you’re an addict, we want to help. If you’re an abuser, we’re ready to forgive and help restore.
Agape’s Recovery Ministry is a collection of spiritual support groups, meant to be used along with professional care, to provide for your spiritual needs. The 12 Steps and 8 Recovery Principles both recognize the importance in relying on God – we’re here to help you do it. We offer encouragement, community, accountability, and safety. We have both men’s and women’s groups addressing a wide variety of struggles. Our Recovery Group leaders have made it through their own addictions or abuse. Our members will pray with you, study God’s Word with you, and walk with you through the successes and relapses of recovery. You are not alone. We want to help.
