What is Biblical Counseling
Biblical counseling is an intensely-focused and personal aspect of the discipleship process whereby believers come alongside one another for the purpose of teaching and guiding one another toward the biblical love and godliness that mark progress toward spiritual maturity. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
The Biblical counseling movement is founded on the premise that God, as Creator, has solutions to man’s brokenness and that His solutions are more effective than those devised by man (Colossians 2:1-10). The solutions for man’s brokenness and the guidance for living a full, abundant life are found in God’s Word. The Biblical counselor’s dependence on the Holy Spirit and prayer and the use of Scripture as his/her reference guide make Biblical counseling distinctively different from the other approaches and ultimately, more effective. The Factory provides biblical counseling to those seeking God’s answers to the questions and problems in their lives.
