All Christians struggle with sin and the effect it has on our lives and our relationships (Romans 3:23; 7:7-25). Whenever a Christian is unable to overcome sinful attitudes or behaviors through private efforts, God desires that he seek assistance from other members, and especially from the Elders who have the responsibility of providing pastoral counseling and oversight (Romans 15:14; Galatians 6:1,2; Colossians 3:16; II Timothy 2:15-16; II Timothy 3:16-5:2; Hebrews 10:24,25; 13:17; James 5:16). Therefore, we encourage believers to make confession to and seek counsel from each other and especially from pastoral counselors.
We believe not only in the inerrancy of the Bible, but also in the sufficiency of the Scriptures. That is, in the Bible we have the truth we need to help people deal with their spiritual problems (II Timothy 3:16-17). We believe that many of the problems for which people are seeking psychotherapy or psychotropic drugs can be solved by taking a biblical approach. We believe that believers are equipped by God to help each other with these spiritual problems (Romans 15:14). Our counseling methods are based on Scripture and are aligned with the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors and the Biblical Counseling Coalition.
