What is Biblical counseling?


“My wife and I started attending Pathways Counseling Center a few years back. We knew that we had areas in our marriage that needed repair and healing, and we were lost on our own.  The program has literally changed the way we view marriage and our walk with Christ.  We are just two sinners navigating our paths together, learning the importance of incorporating God’s Word into marriage, life and family.”                                                                       Pathways Counselee

Psalm 16:11 tells us that God will make known to us “the path of life.” We believe that the Bible provides comprehensive guidance and instruction for faith and life. Our counseling is based on scriptural principles rather than on those of secular psychology or psychiatry. God’s Word is living, active, practical and full of hope in the midst of life’s challenges and trials.

All pathways lead counselors are certified by ACBC (Association of Certified Biblical Counselors). Neither the pastoral nor lay counselors of this church are trained in or licensed as psychotherapists or mental health professionals, nor should they be expected to follow the methods of such specialists. Therefore, if you have a significant legal, financial, medical or other technical questions, you should seek advice from an independent professional. Our counselors will be happy to cooperate with such advisors and help you consider their counsel in light of relevant scriptural principles.

Our goal in counseling is to help God’s people meet the challenges of life in a way that will please and honor the Lord Jesus Christ. At Pathways, it is our privilege to come up alongside you and walk through the valleys of life with you, reminding you of the promises and assurances we find in His Word.
