Counseling

Greg Smith, Senior Pastor
There are times in everyone's life when they need good godly counsel. God has given us the ability to help each other out during these difficult times so that we don't feel isolated and alone.  He has also gives us good advice from His word, the bible, and from individuals like pastors and counselors who have been trained to care for those that are hurting. Here are some Bible Scriptures that talks about counseling:
 
Proverbs 11:14 "Where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety." 

Proverbs 15:22 "Without counsel plans fail, but with many advisers they succeed."
 
If you or someone you know is in need of counseling, we invite you to get in contact with us. Our approach is based on the biblical understanding that a human is made up of three parts: body, soul and spirit. When receiving counsel, each of these areas must be examined, and the correct treatment applied so that we can overcome our difficulties with good sound godly counsel.  Here is a list of situations where counseling may be helpful:
  • When there are major decision to be made such as marriage, career, and spiritual direction. 
  • When faced with issues such as divorce, job loss, major or long-term illness, financial loss, the death of someone near, and physical, mental, emotional, verbal, and sexual abuse.
  • When you face unresolved conflicts such as in family relations, employer-employee relations, other social relations, church relations, and civil relations.
  • When you face addictions such as substance abuse (drug, alcohol, nicotine, and food), sexual addictions, work, ministry, or entertainment addictions, and fantasy addictions.
  • When you face uncontrolled negative emotions and thoughts such as fear, anger, jealousy, bitterness, hate, suicide, depression, doubt, and guilt.
  • When you have difficulties with sleep such as needing excessive amount of sleep, getting too little sleep, or having nightmares and excessive daydreams.
  • When you become spiritually unsure or confused about your salvation from sin, your relationship with God, your spiritual future, or living a proper spiritual life.
If any of these issues are effecting you or someone you know, then we invited get in touch with us and see about making an appointment to discuss counseling options.
