What is Biblical Counseling?

Biblical Counseling is simply using the Bible to address the life issues that many of us face each and every day. The bedrock of this approach is that the Bible is the inspired word of God and therefore it has answers to life’s problems. We apply the teaching of scripture to issues that affect individuals, our families, and our church family. Biblical Counseling is much more than “Take these bible verses and call me in the morning.” We teach a biblical worldview and God’s plan for us. As we explore the Bible together God brings hope, significance, and healing to our lives.

Some common issues that we work with include marriage, emotions, parenting, and sexual sin. The Bible has answers for whatever you are facing. Typically, a person will meet once per week with a counselor, complete various homework assignments, pray with their counselor and attend a local church. If a person is not already an active part of a local church we ask that they share worship services and small group bible study time with us.

Counseling is offered free of charge. Rich Pond Baptist Church believes in the power of God’s word to change lives and provides counseling as a ministry of the church. Each counselee is expected to pay for any materials needed such as books or CDs.
