Biblical Counseling & IABC Counselor Certification Training Program

We have an on-site counseling ministry for individuals, couples, and family counseling. We believe that the Bible alone is sufficient to address life and relationship issues and we expressly disclaim psychology as a legitimate basis to give Christian guidance and wise counsel. This is called nouthetic counseling and seeks to teach and encourage Christians in the Truth and knowledge of God, counseling according to the Word.

 

2 Peter 1:3-8 says,

“His divine power has given us everything we need for

a godly life through our knowledge of Him who called

us by his own glory and goodness. Through these He

has given us His very great and precious promises, so

that through them you may participate in the divine

nature, having escaped the corruption in the world

caused by evil desires".

 

For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

 

For the Christian, we should be growing in our knowledge of God and His Truth rather than seeking answers from a secular worldview, which is the basis of modern psychology. We believe psychology is fundamentally in conflict with Christianity and is secular.

 

Our counselors are therefore not licensed psychologists. We are affiliated with IABC (International Association of Biblical Counselors).
