How Faith Ministries Counsels:

Faith Ministries believes that God's Word will reveal the cause of and solution to everyday problems and conflicts.  Unlike psychology, which is a man's perspective of man and is based upon man's research and theory, and Christian counseling, which is man's attempt to integrate psychological research and theory with the Bible.  Biblical-based counseling develops its concepts and methods directly from the Scriptures and gives God's perspective of man and man's needs.  Through Biblical counseling,  clients are taught how to apply the truths of God's Word to their everyday lives-- both relationally and financially. Problems cannot be solved without Biblical change and Biblical change cannot take place without hope.  Hope is produced in our clients as they grow in their relationship with Christ and learn to think biblically.

Restoring families and individuals that deal with but are not limited to issues such as these:

Adultery, addictions, anger/bitterness, anxiety, assurance of salvation, conflict resolution, decision making, depression, death/grief, divorce, fear, forgiveness/guilt, homosexuality, loneliness, marriage, parenting, premarital, pride, purpose, post-abortion, rebellion, self-worth, sexual addiction, teen issues, and biblical answers to most psychological disorders. 

Our counselors seek to draw from God's resources (the Bible and the power of His Spirit) to address all areas of life's problems.  The Bible offers Truth that gives us everything we need for life and godliness (2 peter 1:3)
