Why “The Twelve”?
We are calling this group “The Twelve” for a number of reasons. As Christians, we can’t avoid the direct link to the 12 Disciples — a group who were called by Christ to learn from Him. As they spent time together, learning from Christ and overcoming their personal issues, they received the infilling of the Holy Spirit and were then able to go and change the world. Like them, we come to study and pray together, accepting Christ’s strength for our daily lives. We also attest that it is through His power that our ministry has efficacy to share hope and wholeness with others.
We also recognize that the 12-step process to overcoming addictions or bad habits is needed in our own lives. For whatever hurts, habits, or hangups we have, working the 12 steps is part of our own journey to freedom in Christ.
Code of Conduct
As with any 12-step group, a certain “code of conduct” is expected by all attendees. These helps to keep a safe and healthy community that fosters growth both personally and for the Adventist Recovery Ministries community.
