Biblical Counseling

What is Biblical Counseling?

Definition 

Biblical Counseling is the process where the Bible, God’s Word, is related individually to a person or persons who are struggling under the weight of personal sin and/or the difficulties with suffering so that he or she might genuinely change in the inner person to be pleasing to God. 

Three Key Beliefs 

First, we believe that the Bible, given by God, is sufficient for life in that when properly interpreted, it reveals to the believer all the data necessary for one to understand his need for Christ, how he can please the Lord, and how to live in a God-honoring way regardless of the circumstances whether comfortable or oppressive. 

Second, the Bible is also the authoritative source with which all truth claims—including claims made by science and history—must be evaluated. As a result, we reject all counseling theories that use presuppositions, principles, and/or methodologies that are inconsistent with the proper interpretation of the biblical text. 

Third, we believe that genuine heart change is totally dependent on the ministry of the Holy Spirit. Thus, our view of counseling practice includes the importance of prayer, dependence on God, a thorough knowledge of the Word of God, and an understanding of ministering to people.

There Is Always Hope

We believe that God has given us all we need to know Him and to live in a way that is pleasing to Him.  All our difficulties may not evaporate.  However, when a person willingly submits to God's instructions and clings to his promises there is hope and help.

Common Issues We Help With

Our experienced counselors are able to help people through a variety of issues. Some of the more common problems we routinely help people through include:

  • Those struggling in their marriage
  • Parents in raising children
  • Those dealing with sexual sin
  • Those struggling with their emotions (e.g. depression or anger).

Regardless of the issue, you bring to us, we believe that God’s Word (the Bible) is sufficient to answer any of life’s problems and questions.

Our Mission

We take the good news of Jesus across the streets, across the states, and across the seas. 

For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. And how are they to hear without someone preaching? How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the Good News! We are God’s “Plan A” to tell people about Jesus!

Our Core Beliefs

It’s all about Jesus! God’s purpose is above our preferences.

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation… All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him, all things hold together.
