COUNSELING GOD'S WAY

"Counseling God's Way" is more than a catchy phrase. It's a commitment to take the Scriptures seriously and to help God's people apply His truth to their personal lives in practical ways.

IABC STATEMENT OF PRACTICE

Biblical counseling is based on the inerrancy, authority, and sufficiency of the Word of God. To safeguard against misguided and  imbalanced practices of counseling which may be labeled “biblical,” some standards of practice need to be established. The following criteria are chosen as stimulants for excellence and, at the time,  to be a means of providing some measure of trustworthiness for general referral. Accordingly, IABC members and counselors are asked to affirm the following:

  1. ✔️I agree that the Scriptures are sufficient, through the empowering presence of the Holy Spirit, to address all of man’s needs regarding life and faith (2 Peter 1:3-4; 2 Timothy 3:16). Therefore, my counseling methods, practices, and techniques will be based upon the clear biblical principles and not upon theories of personality, model of man, psychotherapies, or philosophies derived from secular sources (1 Corinthians 3:19).
