WHY BIBLICAL COUNSELING?
Berean Baptist Church offers free Biblical counseling and discipleship to the surrounding community as a means of sharing the hope of Jesus Christ with a hurting world.
Biblical counseling is a one-to-one discipleship relationship, based on the Word of God, where those struggling with sin-related battles and suffering can find answers to their problems through their identity and purpose in Christ. Counsel flows from the sufficiency and authority of God’s Word, centered on the gospel of Christ and His resources. It is all dependent on the Holy Spirit’s power and motivated by the love and compassion of the local church.
In practice, Berean follows the training, basic doctrines, and standards of the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors https://biblicalcounseling.com
GROWTH AND CHANGE
All believers in Jesus Christ are called to grow and change into the likeness of Christ as a normal part of the Christian life. This is a process known as progressive sanctification. But sometimes, sin and its effects can overwhelm us and we need the love and care of our brothers and sisters to help guide us through the problems of life. Berean Biblical Counseling has skilled and trained counselors who can help you with many different problems, but some of the most common are...
DEPRESSION, ANXIETY AND ANGER
2 Timothy 1:7
"For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control."
MARITAL, PRE-MARITAL, AND FAMILY COUNSELING
"What therefore God has joined together,
let not man separate."
"For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery."
Every believer in Jesus Christ will come upon difficulties in life. It is in trials that we should run to God and His church. We need not suffer alone. In 2 Peter 1:3-7 the bible tells us that His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness. We stand on this truth in leading you in a closer walk with Christ, using his provisions to grow your faith and lead you in the process of progressive sanctification -- the process to grow and change. Sessions usually last one hour, are completely free of charge, and involve you applying yourself to study and prayer between sessions.We have seen lives changed, strongholds broken, marriages restored, and hope made new. We pray you will take the first step and simply meet with one of our trained counselors.
"Therefore, having put away falsehood, let each
one of you speak the truth with his
neighbor, for we are members one of another."
