Faith Bible Church’s counseling ministry, Faith Biblical Counseling Center, operates as an outreach service of our church under the authority of the elders. This ministry is designed to help people facing the problems of modern society find their answers to their problems in God’s Word, the Bible.
In each case we want to help people know the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior and to live their lives to the glory of God. Our counseling services are available to the people of our community on an application basis. We counsel in the areas of marriage, parenting, and personal problems. Our services are provided to couples, men, women, and children. We also have an extensive training program in biblical counseling for those wishing to become more proficient in helping people in their church.
