Providing Biblical Guidance for Faith and Life
What is Biblical Counseling?
Biblical counseling is based upon the Word of God. It addresses the complexity of life issues within the context of Scripture. This counseling concentrates on matters of the heart - our thoughts, attitudes, motives, actions and speech, indicating genuine and lasting change occurs as the result of the working of the Holy Spirit in one’s heart, (Eph. 3:16-19).
Biblical counseling is process; its approach is conformity to the likeness of Christ and is accomplished through salvation (John 3:36), growing in Christ, and putting off the old man and putting on the new man (Eph. 4:22-24 |Col. 3:9-10). Biblical Counseling provides a hope that does not disappoint (Romans 5:5) and it emphasizes the glory of God.

What We Believe
1. In the inerrancy of Scripture. That the Bible, Old and New Testament are the inspired, infallible Word of God; therefore, we do not integrate human secular psychology and philosophy with the Word of God.
2. "All Scripture is breathed out by God and useful for teaching, for conviction, for correction and for disciplined training in righteousness in order to fit and fully equip the man from God for every good task." (2 Timothy 3:16, 17) Therefore, our Biblical Counseling ministry offers the hope found in the Word of God, to individuals who struggle with sin and suffering.
3. Change is an issue of the heart and the work of the Holy Spirit.

Counseling Administrator: Marlene Rodriguez
Marlene came to know the Lord in 1989. Shortly after her conversion, she felt the call of God on her life. When baptized with the Holy Spirit, she had this overwhelming regard for God’s Word and began to diligently search the scriptures for meaning in her life. It was through this process over time, that she came to know God, His love for her, and understand His character. Her desire to share God’s truth and teach others of His loving-kindness produced a passion to see lives changed and hearts transformed by the Spirit through the Word of God. Over several years, He led her to obtain a Masters’ degree in Counseling; not completely understanding, at the time, His purpose for this direction, she was obedient. It was during these years of study that she realized God was preparing her to teach and equip believers that it is His Word which is sufficient to meet the needs of His people, not psychological and humanistic philosophies
