Welcome to the Biblical Counseling Ministry of Paramount Church. We are grateful that you are welcoming us into your life at this time. It is never easy to ask for help. We admire the courage, faith, and humility this first step represents on your part. It is our prayer that God will bless this step and use our time together to build more hope and direction into your life.
Our goal in the counseling ministry is to make the Gospel paramount by connecting our members and our community friends to the life-transforming power of Jesus Christ. We are confident that through the Scriptures and the power of His Spirit, God has given us everything we need for life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3-4). It our joy to help real people, with real problems using the Bible.
Our vision for counseling is larger than a few one-on-one meetings with a counselor. Rarely does lasting change happen in isolation. As a part of counseling, we will likely encourage you to be involved in the life of our church in a variety of ways as we walk together. Our approach to counseling focuses upon helping you identify how your beliefs, values, and desires (Prov. 4:23; Matt. 6:21; Luke 6:45) express themselves in your emotions, relationships, decision-making, and identity.
Our commitment as a church is to offer counseling services to church members and those in the local community. As a church, we are committed to helping others glorify God with their thoughts, words, and actions through the community of faith. This is made possible by the redemptive power of Jesus Christ, the conviction and guidance of the Holy Spirit, and the instruction of God’s Word. Your counseling will be biblical, pastoral counseling in which the Scriptures are held as the final authority in all matters. If you are not sure that you will be interested in biblical counseling, you will have the option of attending one or two sessions to discover how biblical counseling may help you.
The next step in the counseling process is to complete the intake form you are now reading. We have designed it to allow the counseling process to start smoothly and to allow us to connect you with the resources that fit your needs. The counseling form is designed to (1) help us to get to know you in a comprehensive, holistic, and efficient manner and (2) help you organize your thoughts about your counseling objectives. Please allow 30 minutes to complete this form.
We ask that you complete and submit the form. A Pastor will review it carefully and our office will contact you with a recommended counselor and potentially a list of other ministry services that would benefit you at this time.
