What is Biblical Counseling?
Biblical Counseling views God’s Word as the ultimate authority and it is inspired by God to point to the hope and truth found in Jesus.
What we believe
We believe and worship God who created the earth in its fullness (Genesis 1:1, John 1:1-5). In Genesis 3 man sinned for the first time and since that moment man is born spiritually dead and in need of a savior. God sent his son Jesus who lived a perfect, sinless life on earth (Mark 2:11, John 1:14). Jesus bled, died and rose again, conquering sin and death so that his blood covers man’s sin. Man must turn from his wicked heart and confess He is Lord over all, daily submitting to Christ, seeking after him (John 1:12).
How does counseling work
We believe and seek the whole counsel of God, which is found in his written word, the Bible (Ephesians 3:20). We believe that this written word, when accompanied by the power of God’s Holy Spirit is the only hope to change the heart of man.
