Victory Place Biblical Counseling Center
- We believe that the inerrant Word of God is sufficient for all the spiritual needs of the individual in matters of godliness, Romans 15:4; 2 Peter 1:3.
- We believe that the Word of God is able to change people, 2 Timothy 3:16-17; Hebrews 4:12.
- We believe that as Christians we are called to holiness and obedience, 1 Peter 1:15-16; 1 John 2:3.
- We believe that because of the fall of man (Gen. 3) all are in need of the Word and the work of God, Colossians 3:16, John 3:3.
- We believe our Savior is the example, Philippians 2:5; 1 Peter 2:21.
We believe that the Bible provides thorough guidance and instruction for faith and life (2 Peter 1:3 and Romans 15:4). Therefore, our counseling is based only on scriptural principles rather than those of secular psychology or psychiatry. Although some of the pastoral or lay counselors of this church may be licensed in other fields, such as medicine or psychology, they will not practice as professionals but as Biblical counselors.
Our goal in providing biblical counseling is to help you meet the challenges of life in a way that will please and honor the Lord Jesus Christ and allow you to enjoy fully His love for you and His plans for your life. Colossians 1:28
And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren; and these whom He predestined, He also called; and these whom He called, He also justified; and these whom He justified, He also glorified. Romans 8:28-30
We serve individuals, couples, and families that are struggling with many types of problems. Additionally, we offer support groups for some of the challenges experienced in life (e.g. divorce, grief, cancer, or single parenting). All of our counseling and group services are biblical in approach.
