Counseling Ministry

What is Biblical Counseling?

Simply put, biblical counseling is counsel from the Bible, which we believe to be sufficient for everything that pertains to life and godliness (2 Pet. 1:3-4).  It is akin to discipleship or sanctification.

Whereas preaching is the public ministry of the Word, counseling is the private ministry of the Word.

We believe in speaking the truth and in love.  It is not a new idea.  You can find it as early as Acts 2.  Paul preached it in Acts 20:17-35 and he encouraged Timothy to practice it in 2 Tim. 2:2.  Though discipleship/counseling happens at an informal level throughout Harveston Lake Church, this type of counseling happens at a formal level within the Biblical Counseling Ministry (BCM). The goal of our ministry is to lovingly come alongside believers to help them grow in faith, knowledge, and love for Jesus Christ on the journey of becoming conformed to His likeness (Romans 8:29)


The Biblical Counseling Ministry:

  • Is based on the Bible alone for its source of wisdom (2 Peter 1:3,4; 2 Tim. 3:16-17).
  • Provides Biblical Counseling on our church premises.
