As part of our ministry here at Hillside, we believe in the importance of offering biblical counseling resources to our members and our community. We are pleased to offer biblical counseling as a ministry of our church. As such, it is available to anyone in our congregation, from another congregation or from the community at large, at no cost.
Why Biblical Counseling?
Life gets complicated. Relationships crumble. Finances consume us. Thoughts of anger, depression, and fear can overwhelm out thoughts.
We also need someone to listen. A caring, godly person listens to your concerns, guides you to an understanding of what God, in His Word, has to say, and helps you learn how to put that into practice so change can occur. That’s where biblical counseling comes in. Biblical counseling is simply the process of applying the truth of God’s word to the problems and questions in our life.
Unlike traditional therapy, biblical counseling, biblical counseling allows God’s Word to “discern the thoughts and intentions of the heart”. (Hebrews 4:12). By allowing God’s Word to reveal our motives and confront our sin, we are transformed from the inside out, so that we are conformed more and more to the image of Christ.
