Biblical Counselling

What is Biblical Counselling?

Biblical counselling is the soul care ministry of God’s people under the oversight of God’s church, dependent upon the authority and sufficiency of God’s Word through the work of the Holy Spirit. Biblical counselling seeks to reorient disordered desires, affections, thoughts, behaviours, and worship toward a God-designed image of man with the purpose to restore people to a right fellowship with God and others.

Biblical counselling is fundamentally a theological task. The work of understanding the problems which require counselling and of helping people with those problems requires theological faithfulness and submission to the way God explains life.

The aim of Biblical Counseling is not only to deal with a sinful habit, a difficult relationship, or a chronic illness or a loss. Its final and long-term aim is Christlikeness, a life lived in purity and holiness of heart and mind, in action, speech, attitudes and thoughts. Biblical counseling ministers to the inner man (our heart,

mind, or soul) where transformation by God’s Word through the Holy Spirit starts, and it results in biblical change in the outer man (our bodies, behaviour, and speech) living to love, worship and serve God.

Why Biblical Counselling?

We believe that God’s Word, the Bible, is sufficient to resolve life’s most challenging situations and questions. Though followers of Christ are made right with God by Christ alone, through faith alone, not through good works, they continue to live in a corrupt world and in weak and totally deprived bodies. By ministering God’s truth, Biblical counseling partners with the believer in pursuing a biblical way of thinking and living every day, to please God and to become more like Christ (progressive sanctification). Faith leads to works, to a disciplined life and commitment to live to serve and please our Maker and Redeemer, which is our God given goal on earth.

When Do I Know I Need Biblical Counselling?

When you struggle with unbiblical ingrained habits (of thinking, speech, or behaviour), a difficult relationship, grief, chronic illness, anxiety, anger, depression, temptations you cannot overcome, or any other life circumstance where you need to know God’s will, work, and perspective.
