Are You Interested in Biblical Counseling at Christ Family Church?
Christ Family Church provides church-based, Christ-centered, biblical counseling to individuals, couples, and families to help them know Jesus, or know Him more deeply, and to help them find and apply God’s answers for their personal problems and their relational problems.

What Distinguishes Biblical Counseling from Other Forms of Counseling?

  1. Our counseling presents Jesus Christ as the crucified, risen Lord and Savior who, through His Word and His Spirit, can help us handle our personal and relational problems. Jesus alone provides the forgiving mercy, the wisdom, and the power we need for daily living.
  2. Our counseling uses the Bible as our main tool to diagnose, explain, and solve our problems. As God’s Word, the Bible provides thorough, authoritative, and sufficient guidance for every life situation we face, and it is richly superior to the competing counsel of secular or “christianized” psychologies.
  3. Our counseling reflects the love, kindness, and compassion of Jesus our Shepherd and Counselor. Biblical counseling is a caring process marked by Christ-like love, wisdom, and concern.
  4. Our counseling seeks to bring thorough and lasting godly change by addressing both the inward and the outward issues of our problems. Scripture alone goes deep enough to uncover and solve both our inward, heart struggles and our outward, behavioral struggles.

For Whom Do We Provide Counseling?
We provide counseling as a shepherding ministry to our church members (or to regular attenders who are committed to CFC and who are in the membership process).
In the future, we hope to provide counseling as an outreach ministry to people in our community who are not members of another Bible-believing church but who desire biblical counseling in our church context.

Who Are Our Counselors?
Each of our male and female counselors is an active CFC church member, each has completed (or is in the process of completing) certification with the Association of Certified Biblical Counseling, each has been approved by our church pastors, each receives ongoing continuing education training, and each receives oversight and consultation help from one of our elders. In addition, our elders provide various levels of counseling.
By choice, we are not state-licensed counselors and we do not provide “professional” or “psychological” counseling. We counsel people as a ministry of our church based on the good news of Jesus Christ and based on our understanding of the Bible as God’s Word.

Is There a Financial Cost?
There are no fees for our counseling ministry. Through the regular, generous giving of our church members, we are able and delighted to offer counseling free of charge. At the same time, we encourage and welcome financial gifts to our ministry to help cover various costs (training, materials, etc.).
