to learn more about the history of the Colony of Mercy Program
Biblical in foundation, the goal is spiritual transformation which results in freedom from the bondage of addiction. Spiritual transformation is accomplished by addressing the deeper heart issues with biblical truth leading to full surrender. No secular program or exercise of self control will long sustain an individual in an addiction-free condition. One can only be liberated through the all-sufficient blood of Jesus Christ and acceptance of the new life which only He offers. The biblical principle which this transformation demonstrates can be found in 2 Corinthians 5:17: “Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creation, old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
There are no medical or psychiatric methods are incorporated into the Colony program. Spiritual help is provided through one-on-one counseling, group sessions, Bible study, sharing times and regularly scheduled worship services. A staff member is available at all times for assistance, prayer and counsel.
