God loves you and understands your hurt and confusion. He has provided, through His Son, everything we need to remove our sins, heal our broken hearts, and to set us free. To be saved means to become completely whole in every aspect of our lives. (For more on how to be saved see About/salvation above.)
Salvation comes progressively through faith, but sometimes hearing and studying God's Word and even seeking the best advice of a good pastor doesn't seem to be enough. Or maybe we are so bound and our problems seem so complicated that we don't even know where to start. That is when we need a Christian counselor, a specialist who is trained, knows the Word of God, and has experience breaking mental, emotional, and spiritual strongholds.
The counselor's place in the Body of Christ is to assist pastors and individuals in applying the Word of God and the enablement of the Holy Spirit to resolve specific kinds of difficult and long-term psychological, emotional, and family problems. The Christian counselor helps the client in overcoming the obstacles which prevent him from achieving the sanctified, abundant life that has been given us through Christ.
Here are the comments of some of our clients who have been helped by God through Christian counselors at Word of Life Counseling Center.
"Anger was destroying my marriage and...children. Counseling...has broken the grip of anger and is helping to restore...relations."
"...Christian counseling has helped me through addiction and I'm back on track with God."
"...Our marriage, family, and lives have been transformed!"
