Light of Hope Counseling provides Christian-based counseling for clients who would like to implement Faith in treatment. By “Christian-based” we mean that we operate from a Christian world-view and recognize that we are all spiritual beings who were created to be in a relationship with God.
We believe that GOD is:
Sovereign, Creator, Sustainer, Personal, Self-existent, Tri-unity, Holy, Loving, Good, Infinite, Unchanging (Immutable), All-Knowing (Omnipresent), All- Powerful (Omnipotent), and Everywhere-Present (Omnipresent). (Genesis 1:1 /1:26; Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19-20; John 4:24 /10:30; 2 Corinthians 13:14)
We believe that JESUS CHRIST is:
God incarnate; born of a virgin; our Substitute; bodily Resurrected; sole Mediator between us and God; Returning again (John 1:1-14; Romans 3:23-25; Acts 2:24-27; 1 Timothy 2:5; Titus 2:13)
We believe that the HOLY SPIRIT is:
The third person of the Godhead; He regenerates, indwells, and seals all believers at the time of conversion, and fills and gives Spiritual Gifts to all believers who are yielded to God for the maturing and work of the body of Christ, that is, the Church. (Matthew 28:19; John 2:3-7; Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 2;12/ 6:19/ 12:7-13; Ephesians 4:30)
We believe that The BIBLE is:
God’s Word to us. Thus, it is inspired of God, complete, unified and without error (inerrant and infallible), the final standard of faith and practice for all believers. (Matthew 5:18; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21)
We believe that HUMANKIND is:
Created in the Image of God and designed to be like Him in character and conduct; sinned in Adam and is now a sinner by nature and choice; remains the bearer of God’s Image even in mankind’s fallen state, and will face Judgment one day. (Genesis 1:26-27 /3:16; Romans 3:10-18 / 5:12-14; James 3:9; Luke 2:52)
We believe that SALVATION is:
Solely by Grace through Faith in Jesus Christ; it is apart from merit, ceremonies or works. The sharing of the Gospel, that is, EVANGELISM is at the very heart of God, and central to the purpose and growth for all followers of Christ. (Acts 4:12/ 16:31, Ephesians 2:8-10; 1 Peter 1:3-5; 1 John 5:11-13; Romans 8:35-39)
We believe in the integration of Psychology, Theology, and Spiritual Formation. In this we look at Gods Word (The Bible) as well as His Works (Psychology). With this approach, we holistically heal and enable the client to succeed and have lasting results.
Finally, we have merely scratched the surface of what Christian Based treatment involves at Light of hope Counseling. It is our goal to relate to people uniquely (just as Jesus did in the Gospels) since no two people are exactly alike. We do not have a single step by step blueprint that we use, rather we rely on the Holy Spirit and the knowledge base God has enabled us to acquire to guide us to a redemptive path.
