Our Philosophy

When addressing questions regarding our anthropology, our understanding of human nature, and the issues of life regarding purpose, needs, and the role of relationships, we believe that the Bible is the ultimate authority in shaping our worldview on these kinds of topics. As we minister to the whole person, we first build on the practical application of biblical truths to real life issues and will also embrace other necessary truths regarding the physiology and shaping influences of the person, always striving to provide biblical counsel and practical help with humility and integrity.

In order to more effectively serve you and best equip our counselors to help you, we believe in a team approach when providing our counseling. We believe in the biblical authority of the local church and its establishment to provide and oversee opportunity and care for people to function in biblical community. When pursuing counseling through God Changes Lives Ministries, we require your authorization to discuss the content of your situation within or amongst our counseling staff of GCL and with an advocate from your local church. The advocate should be your pastor or church leader and/or someone with whom you're able to be accountable to in a mentoring relationship throughout the counseling process.

The time frame of help will vary depending on the severity of the identified issues, how God is at work in your life, and the degree of your commitment to responsibly follow through with the offered agenda of counseling. This commitment will involve your participation in homework, reading, and consistent attendance to your scheduled appointments. Assertive participation achieves the best results, while casual participation usually results in minimal progress.
