Biblical Counseling Ministry


What is biblical counseling?

It's counseling based on the biblical teaching that the Bible provides everything a Christian needs to live well and please God. The biblical counselor's concern is to help counselees solve their problems and change through loving confrontation with God's Word.

Biblical Counseling can help you with any problems you may be facing:













We provide biblical counseling to those seeking God's answers to the difficult issues in their lives.
