The Grace Walk Recovery Ministry believes that God’s Answer for addiction is freedom in Christ. The truth is that freedom has been provided for every child of God; It was for freedom that Christ set us free…(Gal. 5  :1). The finished work of Christ has provided freedom for every believer,  for we know that old self was crucified with Him that the body of sin might be down away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin, because anyone who has died has been freed from sin (Rom. 6:6,7). Anyone who is struggling with an addiction is simply believing a lie. Jesus said you will know the truth and the truth will set you free (John 8:32). When a person knows the truth they will experience freedom in Christ. Our goal is to present the truth of God’s clear, complete and definitive answer for addiction, which is freedom in Christ.

GWM LogoScripture teaches clearly that the finished work of Christ provides freedom from not only the penalty of sin, but the power of sin. Our belief is that a person who understands who they are and what they have in Christ will not engage in self-destructive addictive behaviors as a lifestyle. In other words they will live in peace, joy and freedom from addiction.

Freedom is your birthright as a child of God. DON’T SETTLE FOR LESS! Our focus is to teach, train, equip and provide resources for people to conduct recovery ministries where people find true and lasting freedom in Christ. This is being accomplished through books, workbooks, devotionals, DVD’s and webinars. The webinars are designed to present the truth that sets free from addictive behavior and train and equip a person to have a recovery ministry where this takes place.

Jesus declared “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because He has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed.” — Luke 4:18

God’s Grace to you,

  1. Mr. Quarles , I am in a quandary . I am a semi retired psychotherapist and have read and know your biblical theology and effective treatment strategies ” The Victorious Life”. My concern is for my sister and husband in Virginia Beach Va hose 19 year old son has been “experimenting” With various substances especially hallucinogenics. He has made his promises to them and I know he is still using. Do you know of any similar ministry or treatment facilities in that area of the country or even other states that I maybe able to refer my sister to? They are doing nothing since he made his promises and they are fearful of taking a ” tough love” approach. I understand their predicament. They are not wealthy people and would not be able to afford a great amount of the cost. Having myself been employed only in “”secular treatment programs” I shudder to think of him being warehoused in that mental health delivery system reinforced by relapse and a debilitating identity and all that goes with it. I highly praise your literature; testimonies in Christ; and trust your judgment to be grateful to receive any information; recommendations; or resources that you may provide me with I can share with them. I believe there is only lasting freedom in Christ and his truth hat sets captives free from bondage. I too have my own story.
    Thank you ,

  2. I’m loving the content. I just stumbled upon this somehow through Facebook. I have been reading through some of your archives and some stuff is really resonating with me. Awesome stuff The truth has been the only thing that has freed me from addiction. Learning who I am in Christ has definitely impacted my life. Thanks for the confirmation that I was not crazy. Lol. I have opposed some drug counselors last year through a post post and was basically shunned because I believe that addiction is basically a symptom of a much bigger problem like you mentioned in one of your blogs. They didn’t like that idea at all. These are counselors that are putting people’s lives in their hands. They sweep the statistics under the rug and deny the recidivism rates to keep their positions. I was an addict ever since I was eight years old and I’m 47 now, I’ve been through every program known to man and the only thing that actually freed me was learning who I am in Christ, and even still then I sometimes went back to that addiction in my immaturity. But no secular counseling or rehabilitation center worked ever on me. In fact, when my parents insurance ran out they early graduated me. Go figure.

  3. i am having trouble embracing my identity in christ. What do you do with that…
    Seems a repentance issue to me. Thanks mary s

    • Mary I agree that it is a repentance issue but most Christians don’t know or understand repentance Check ou this article and let me know what you think. Repentance
      Most Christians do not know or understand repentance. Repentance comes from the Greek word in the New testament metanoia which is from meta (change) and noia (mind). Most think it means to change behavior, which is part of the legalistic mindset or theology that most Christians have bought into; that it is up to them to do something (change their behavior). It would seem that they do not believe what Jesus said …apart from Me you can do nothing (John 15:5). And no one will experience their freedom until they believe that truth. In other words they will not until they experience brokenness; which is coming to the end of self and they know there is nothing to do to experience their freedom because they already have it as it was purchased for them at the cross through the finished work of Christ. Jesus meant it when He said “IT IS FINISHED” (John 19:30). I believe that is probably Satan’s greatest weapon and the most paralyzing lie that he has gotten most Christians to believe that they need to do something rather than BELIEVE the truth of what has already been done. I have been telling this truth to Christians for just over 30 years and it seems less than 5% of them believe it. Why?!?! You would think it is the greatest truth in the universe and it is. It can be summed up in Gal. 2:20 “I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the [life] which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. When a person believes this, they experience their freedom in Christ. Why don’t they believe it? Because to believe this truth they must have come to the end of self (self-effort) and most of us never get there. Why?! Because we believe there is something we can do. We have not given up on ourselves. Hannah Whitall Smith sums it up:
      Rather than admit helplessness, men will undergo many painful sacrifices, if only self may share the glory. A religion of bondage always exalts self. It is what I do, my efforts, my fasting, my sacrifices, my prayers. But a religion of freedom leaves nothing for self to glory in. It is all Christ and what He does.
      But some say, “Wait a minute, we’re Americans, we never give up! We’re self-starters, we’re go-getters, we’re hard chargers, we’re high achievers. We can make it happen. We can get it done. When the going gets tough the tough get going”. Fine, but that’s not the Christian life. What is the Christian life? My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong (2 Cor. 12:9, 10). Does anyone want to sign up for that? NO! Because that is the theology that sets people free but it only sets free those who are willing to renounce self-effort and agree with Jesus that apart from Him they can do nothing. And that only comes through brokenness, but as Neil Anderson says “It was the best day of my life” and it was the best day of my life as it was then and only then that I found my freedom. What do you have to do: Believe the truth that you are dead to sin and freed from it (Rom. 6:6. 7) And Christ is your life (Col. 3:4) and is living it (Gal. 2:20).
