The common human dilemma is that sometimes we go about trying to meet our own needs in ways that are more hurtful than helpful to ourselves and others. The frequent result is dissatisfying shallowness, painful despair, or the trap of an addiction. Real solutions are found when we develop an understanding of, and choose to live in harmony with, God’s truth as revealed in the Bible. A personal relationship with Jesus Christ is the ultimate key to having our needs met.
Our Lay Counseling Ministry is intended to provide an accepting atmosphere where people can gain insight into and sort out their needs, whether one-on-one in the presence of a trained listener who will ask key questions and offer guidance based on God’s revealed truth, or with a group working on the same issue. The growth and change needed to overcome problems rises from a willingness of the individual to accept responsibility for the issue at hand and to actively apply practical steps consistent with God’s truth.
