BIBLICAL COUNSELING

Providing Biblical Guidance for Faith and Life

A Word from the Director

Pastor Dean Ridings

“What happens to you matters to me.” That’s a key takeaway from Jesus’ parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37). It’s also the heart of CWC’s Biblical Counseling and Discipleship ministry.

Loving “neighbors” doesn’t mean “passing by on the other side” when people’s lives and/or hearts are broken. It means coming alongside—being there, showing care, giving hope. If you’re experiencing brokenness, we’re here for you. Schedule an appointment—our office hours are Monday through Thursday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and our phone number is (719) 632-3311 or simply click the "Make an appointment" button below.

If you have a heart for the hurting, sign up to attend our next Biblical Counseling 101: Basics for Every Believer course. Consider taking part in our annual Biblical Counseling Intensive course if you sense God’s call to become one of our trained biblical counselors, helping hurting people find answers to life’s problems in God’s Holy Word, the Bible, guided by the Holy Spirit. May we have the heart of Jesus, who showed us how to love our neighbors—because what happens to them matters to us!

What is Biblical Counseling?

Biblical counseling is based upon the Word of God. It addresses the complexity of life issues within the context of Scripture. This counseling concentrates on matters of the heart - our thoughts, attitudes, motives, actions and speech, indicating genuine and lasting change occurs as the result of the working of the Holy Spirit in one’s heart, (Eph. 3:16-19).

What We Believe

In the inerrancy of Scripture. That the Bible, Old and New Testament are the inspired, infallible Word of God; therefore, we do not integrate human secular psychology and philosophy with the Word of God. "All Scripture is breathed out by God and useful for teaching, for conviction, for correction and for disciplined training in righteousness in order to fit and fully equip the man from God for every good task." (2 Timothy 3:16, 17) Therefore, our Biblical Counseling ministry offers the hope found in the Word of God, to individuals who struggle with sin and suffering. Change is an issue of the heart and the work of the Holy Spirit.
