Biblical Counseling

Help from God’s Word for Life

The counseling ministry of West Side Baptist Church seeks to serve our community by offering help from God’s Word for the many problems in life. There is no cost for counseling.

Our Goal

Our goal in providing Biblical counseling is to help you meet the challenges of life in a way that will please Christ and allow you to enjoy His love and plans for your life.

Biblical Basis

We believe that the Bible provides thorough guidance and instruction for faith and life. Therefore, our counseling is based on Scriptural principles rather than those of secular psychology or psychiatry. Neither the pastoral nor the lay counselors of this church are trained or licensed as psychotherapists or mental health professionals, nor should they be expected to follow the methods of such specialists.

Not Professional Advice

Some of our counselors may work in professional fields outside the church. When serving as counselors within this church, however, they do not provide the same kind of professional advice and services that they do when they are hired in their professional capabilities. Therefore, if you have significant legal, financial, medical or other technical questions, you should seek advice from an independent professional. Our pastoral and lay counselors will be happy to cooperate with such advisors and help you to consider their counsel in the light of relevant Scriptural principles.

If you are interested in making an appointment to talk to a Biblical counselor, please call the church office at 620-342-4142 or email us at office@wsbcemporia.org.

How Can We Pray For You? 

We believe life is better together, especially when you’re going through something. Let us know if you’re going into the hospital, have a death in the family, or need someone to pray with you through a difficult time. We want to be there for you and each other.
