What is biblical counseling?
Biblical counseling is the personal ministry of the word of God where we have conversations and reflect upon how God's word can interpret, inform, correct, and guide us as we face the struggles of life. We all face the impacts of sin and suffering in this world. Sometimes this gets so intense that we become stuck in a spiral and we need some help. Biblical counseling is different from secular counseling because we are leaning completely on the Bible for guidance and we are relying on the Spirit of God to enable us to grow and change to be more like Christ. We come under the authority of Scripture and look to the wonderful counselor for help and hope in all our struggles. Our goal is not wholeness or full control over our lives, but a delight in Jesus and dependence upon him as our all in all.
We are relying on the Spirit of God to enable us to grow and change.
