What is Biblical counseling?

Biblical counseling is the process by which God’s Word, the Bible, is applied to specific situations of sin, suffering, and life situations so that all may be genuinely and deeply changed in a manner that is pleasing to God.  It is simply walking alongside you and Jesus as we apply His Word to our lives.

InStep Key Beliefs:

We believe that the Bible is authoritative in all matters of truth especially as it relates to who God is, who we are, and how we are to live a transformed life in obedience to His will.

We reject presuppositions and methodologies that are inconsistent with the revealed truth of God’s Word.

We believe genuine heart change happens through the work of the Holy Spirit.  Our counsel includes prayer, dependence on God, and a thorough knowledge of the Word of God and how it applies to our lives.

Our counseling is centered on Jesus Christ, fully reliant on the Holy Spirit, completely dedicated to the authority and sufficiency of God’s Word, and thoroughly committed to the vitality of community of believers.

His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us to His own glory and excellence, by which He has granted to us His precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire. ~ 2 Peter 1:3-5

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. ~ 2 Timothy 3:16-17
