You probably have many things come to mind when you see the word “Counseling”, so let us explain what we mean by pastoral counseling.
The Counselor does not claim to be a certified psychologist; rather they are trained in the use of the Scripture and the principle of biblical counseling. As a Biblical Counselor we are committed to the authority of the Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16-17). We also understand that the Bible is capable of handling all things pertaining to life and godliness (1 Peter 1:3).

God has given his local Church to assist in that process (Hebrews 3:13; 10:24-25). Therefore it is important that your counseling be accompanied by discipleship and fellowship from a local church. If you do not have a church home, you are welcome to join us in our church’s fellowship. If you are part of another church family, the assistance of your church’s leadership may be requested.

Thus, although your pastoral counselor may talk with others about a particular situation, you may be confident that the discussion will be restricted to whatever is necessary to help you overcome your problems (Proverbs 10:18-21).
We view pastoral counseling as a ministry of the local church to hurting people, therefore:
