Treasuring Christ Church desires to help individuals, couples, and families treasure Christ, pursue community, and love our city and world. We desire to walk alongside people in our city with the aim that they see Christ as most beautiful and apply his answers to their personal problems.
Four Foundational Convictions
By choice our counseling is not ‘state-licensed’ and we do not provide ‘psychological’ counseling as many do. Rather, we confidently stand upon the Word of God offering His promises and provision in Christ as our only hope. For this reason there are four convictions we hold to in all of our counseling:
- We present the Lord Jesus Christ as the crucified, risen Savior who, through his Word and his Spirit, can help us handle our personal and relational problems. Jesus alone provides the forgiving mercy (through his saving death and resurrection), the wisdom (in his Word), and the power (through his Spirit) we need for daily living.
- We rely on the Bible as our main tool to diagnose, explain, and solve our problems. As God's Word, the Bible provides true, thorough, authoritative, and sufficient guidance for every life situation we face, and it is richly superior to the human wisdom and competing counsel of secular psychologies.
- We reflect the love, concern, and compassion of Jesus our Shepherd and Counselor. Biblical counseling is a caring process marked by Christlike love.
- We seek thorough and lasting godly change by addressing both the inward and outward issues of our problems. Biblical counseling is not shallow, superficial, or simplistic. Scripture alone uncovers and solves our inward, heart (beliefs and motives) struggles and our outward, behavioral (words and actions) struggles.
