Biblical Counseling

About Biblical Counseling

At Cumberland Bible Church, we believe that in Scripture God has given us everything we need to live life successfully. The role of the New Testament Church is to minister to the needs of the body and the community at large.

The Biblical Counseling Ministry offers free biblical counseling anchored in the principles of God’s Word. The goal of biblical counseling is to come alongside a person and give hope & help through biblical application so a person can handle the problems of life in a manner pleasing to God.

Who Can Come?

Cumberland Bible offers counseling to individuals and couples. You do not need to be a member of Cumberland Bible Church to receive counseling. What kind of problems does the Biblical Counseling Ministry handle? Our staff is here to help you with any problems you may be facing, including: marriage problems, addictions, disorders, fear, anger, guilt, parent / child relationships, among others. 

How much does it cost?

There is no cost for counseling services. Counseling services are provided to our community as a ministry of Cumberland Bible Church. 

Biblical Basis:

We believe the Bible provides thorough guidance and instruction for faith and life. Therefore, our counseling is based on scriptural principles rather than those of secular psychology or psychiatry. Neither the biblical counselors nor the counselors-in-training are trained or licensed as psychotherapists or mental health professionals, nor should they be expected to follow the methods of such specialists. 

Not Professional Advice:

Some of our counselors may work in professional fields outside the counseling ministry. When serving as counselors within this ministry, however, they do not provide the same kind of professional advice and services that they do when they are hired in their professional capacities. Therefore, if you have significant legal, financial, medical or other technical questions, you should seek advice from an independent professional. Our counselors are happy to cooperate with such advisors and help you to consider their counsel in light of relevant scriptural principles.
