About Us

Mission and Core Values

Mission Statement: Helping hurting people discover hope and comfort through God’s Word.

Key Verse: For we are his workmanship (masterpiece), created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10 

Core Values and Doctrinal Statement: We are in agreement with and ascribe to the Biblical Counseling Coalition's Confessional Statement and Doctrinal Statement.   

Ministry Philosophy

God’s Word is sufficient for assessing and addressing the difficulties of life. (1 Peter 3:16, Hebrews 4:12) and

God is actively doing a work of sanctification in the life of every believer. (1 Thessalonians 4:3, John 15:1- 4, Hebrews 12:7-11, Philippians 1:6, Ephesians 2:10, 3:14-20)

Counseling Goals

We first seek to provide the counselee with a biblical framework for understanding the difficulty they are experiencing, and to point them to biblically-based hope and comfort.

The long-term goal of counseling will be to help the counselee develop a stronger faith and a deeper, more meaningful relationship with the Lord that will serve them far beyond the term of the current crisis. 

Care Model

Christ-Centered: A dynamic personal relationship with Jesus Christ is key to experiencing freedom from overwhelming despair, discouragement, anxiety, besetting sins and the difficulties of life.  (John 15, 16:33, Col 1:20) 

Biblically-Based: The Scriptures are the primary source of wisdom for all counsel and assigned homework. (Hebrews 4:12, 1 Peter 3:16)

Spirit-Lead: The Holy Spirit dwells within all believers granting wisdom and  discernment, teaching and helping them understand spiritual truth. (John 14:16, 26, Ephesians 3:20)

Prayer-Saturated: Every counseling session will begin and end with prayer, and counselees will be prayed for on a regular basis through intercessory prayer. (James 5:16)
