Biblical Counseling

“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable, for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

II Timothy 3:16,17 (King James Version)


 

Answers to Common Questions About our Biblical Counseling Ministry


What is Biblical Counseling? - We believe God’s Word is sufficient and provides everything necessary to know Him and live in a way that is pleasing to Him 2 Tim. 3:16,17; 2 Pet. 1:3). God blesses those who are living a life of obedience to as discovered in His Word. The person who follows God’s counsel can have hope, contentment, and answers to all the problems and pressures of daily life.

What Kind of Counseling? - We offer pre-marriage, marriage and family, individual (including personal and spiritual growth, depression, anxiety, grief, stress, handling difficult relationships, etc.). The counseling is based on the Bible. God’s Word is sufficient to answer the problems of life and is superior to any other source of counsel.

Who Counsels? - Counselors are pastors and other qualified individuals trained in biblical counseling.

What does Counseling Cost? - The counseling is free. Workbooks or required reading are the responsibility of the individual. We provide the facilities and the counselors. Our church believes this is an outreach to our community.

When Will I Be Counseled? - Counseling is available by appointment only. Sometimes a counselor may not be immediately available and there will be a waiting period.

How Long Will Counseling Last? - Counseling sessions typically last for one hour each week for approximately 10-12 weeks. The number of sessions may be shortened or lengthened depending on progress made.

Confidentiality - Everything is strictly confidential except where, in the counselor’s judgement, there is a biblical requirement to involve others.
