Ministry Purpose and Philosophy
The Biblical Counseling Ministry provides assistance to individuals, couples, and families in the form of short-term, intensive discipleship to offer support and guidance to those facing difficult issues in life. Our focus is to help fellow believers glorify God with their thoughts, motives, and behaviors, through the redemptive power of Jesus Christ, the conviction and guidance of the Holy Spirit, and the instruction of God’s Word (Col. 3:23; Eph. 1:7; John 16:8, 13; 2 Tim. 3:16-17).
The basic presupposition of biblical counseling is that there is an infinite and personal God who has revealed Himself in the written Word, the Bible, and the living Word, Jesus Christ. The Bible and Jesus Christ both testify that the most basic problem of every human being is his separation from God. This occurs by the fact that He is holy, and we are not. While people may solve their personal problems temporarily and partially by approximating biblical principles or through behavior modification, they can never experience an absolutely fulfilling life here or eternally unless this separation is overcome by reconciliation to God through Jesus Christ. Our desire is to help people to know Jesus more deeply, and help them find and apply God’s answers for their personal and relational problems.
