Our Gospel Approach
At Redeemer Counseling Services (RCS), we believe both theology and psychology share a common aim of understanding who we are, what is wrong with us, and what will fix us. Our approach to gospel-centered counseling is to create a context for healing and growth as people experience the power of the Holy Spirit and the truth of the gospel in a personal way. We believe our role as counselors is to direct people to the sure hope in Christ to restore and heal.
Redeemer Counseling Services strives to apply a biblical perspective to the challenges of life. We believe that Scripture is God’s inspired written revelation to humanity. It is trustworthy in providing solutions to human problems and it is the final authority on all moral issues of life.
Our counselors strive to provide the best care possible, pointing to the power of Christ to restore and heal.
Our philosophy is holistic. We believe that people are made in God’s image, and to restore health to a person, we need to consider the dimensions of both body and soul. Our goal in counseling is to establish a context of growth by guiding individuals and the community towards emotional and spiritual wholeness. In order for counseling to be meaningful and effective, it must not only help alleviate presenting symptoms and suffering, but it must also expose the complex and largely hidden desires and motives of the heart.
Our core values
We believe there cannot be lasting transformation apart from Jesus Christ. Change is experienced in a covenant relationship with him.
We acknowledge that change does not happen in isolation. Our counseling therefore encourages healing and growth within the context of community.
We believe counseling is an examination of the heart and transformation is the work of the Holy Spirit.
We seek to address the demands and complexities of urban life with the wisdom of God.
We serve as a model and assist in developing gospel-centered counseling ministries.
