Recovery and Addiction

“But earnestly desire the best gifts. And yet I show you a more excellent way.”

1 Corinthians 12:31 NKJV

The Most Excellent Way is a loving group of men and women affected directly or indirectly by drugs and/or alcohol. In the Fellowship/Support Meetings, we grow in our faith in Christ with the encouragement of God’s Word and prayers of those who understand what we have been through. Thousands worldwide have been set free through these weekly meetings.

Calvary Visalia’s recovery and addiction ministry meets every Monday evening from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm in room 7&8 in the church building.

For we ourselves were also once foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving various lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful and hating one another. But when the kindness and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared, not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior, that having been justified by His grace we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.”

Titus 3:3-7 NKJV

Philosophy of Ministry toward Recovery and Addiction in Visalia

The Most Excellent Way recovery ministry in Visalia is LOVE according to the Bible (1 Corinthians 12:31). God Himself demonstrated His love for us by freely giving us the gift of Life — abundant LIFE — His Son. And we love because He first loved us!

Calvary Visalia Church believes a person can be totally free from addiction and compulsive behavior only by the power of the indwelling Spirit of Christ Jesus.  God loves you!  Your Creator knows everything about you (everything!) and He still loves you.   And He has good purposes and forever plans for your life.

At a time when so many are searching for the answer to addiction, the world has risen to the occasion offering one program after another. But what is the answer to the Church for the problem of addiction?

Is the Word of God silent about this plague sweeping across our nation and destorying everything in its path? Is mankind a victim, unable to resist sinful impulses because of a disease and, thus, unaccountable to God? Can one imprisoned by addiction ever be free?

Our program meets on Monday Nights from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm in room 7&8 in the church building. For information, contact us at (559) 687-0220 or by email at
