Counselling Ministry

We at First Baptist Church believe it is our responsibility and privilege to provide Christ-centered, biblical counsel to Christians, and those within our community, struggling with problems such as marital issues, parenting issues, depression, anger, SSA, gender confusion, and a variety of other personal problems that individuals and couples may experience. We believe God’s Word is without error and sufficient to provide counsel for any and all problems in and through the power of the Holy Spirit and utilize it to its fullest to minister counsel into these various issues and problems.

There is a suggested fee of $40 per session for the counselling sessions you will partake in. If you are not able to afford this suggested fee you should consult your pastor to inquire if your church would consider covering the suggested fee, or helping subsidize it with you. We seek to serve anyone in need so please do not let finances become a barrier as we will work with you. The suggested fee, or other monies received if you cannot afford the suggested fee, are non-receiptable for Income Tax Purposes and do not qualify for reimbursement through company benefits.
