Pastoral Care includes Visitation, Officiating, Bereavement, Pastoral Counseling, Biblical Counseling, Prayer, and Freedom in Christ.
As Christians, we’re not promised that we will be free from problems.
Because we live in a culture counter to God’s Word, much of the support and influence in our lives come from sources that do not align with God’s Word. When we try to solve our problems through the world’s solutions, we don’t receive lasting relief. Our trials can seem overwhelming and unending. So, if I’m a Christian, why am I still struggling, and how do I get relief? That’s where biblical counseling may be able to offer hope and help.
We seek to help a person who is struggling apply the principles in God's Word in such a way that the person responds in an obedient and godly manner to the problems they are facing.
The goal of the counseling ministry is to not merely help individuals out of difficult circumstances or change behaviors, but to encourage and support individuals so that they might grow in their maturity as Christians and their likenesses to the image of Christ.
Confidentiality is respected. A case may be discussed with other counselors, pastors or other professionals, but only to the degree necessary to find further biblical solutions to the problem. All such consultations are conducted with the highest standards of biblical ethics.
