Key Components of Biblical Care

The following are beliefs held and applied by Brittany in her method of care.

  • Sufficiency of Scripture 1 Timothy 3:16 "All scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work." 

  • Great commission motivated Matthew 28:19-20 "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations...teaching them to observe all that I (Jesus) have commanded you." 

  • Christ-centered and gospel-focused Ephesians 2:4-5 "But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together in Christ-by grace you have been saved-" 

  • Church-connected Ephesians 4:16 "...when each part is working properly...the body grow(s) so that it builds itself up in love." 

  • Holy Spirit and prayer led John 14:26 "But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my (Jesus) name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you."

  • Compassionate care for body and soul 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 "Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God?...So glorify God in your body." 

Why "Image" biblical counselling?

The Bible uses the concept of "image" (to be or act as an imitation, reflection, or representation) to help us answer some of life's big questions.​

  • Who are we?  

All of humankind has been created by God. He created men and women in his own image with individual value and intelligence. (Genesis 1:27)

  • Who is Jesus?

Jesus is the image of the invisible God. Through Jesus the world was created and he reigns over heaven and earth. He is the head of the Church and the perfect Son of God. Through his death on the cross, he has made peace with God regarding the punishment of our sins and reconciliation that leads to new life for believers. (Colossians 1:15-20, 2 Corinthians 4:4)

  • How do people change?

We change by beholding the glory of the God who made us. We are transformed and renewed by knowing him and seeking to be like (image) him.

(2 Corinthians 3:18, Colossians 3:9-11)

  • What is God's purpose for my life?

God wants to see you conformed to the image of his Son, Jesus. He promises that he will bring this about through the forgiveness of your sins and the restoration of your soul and body in eternity. (Romans 8:29-30, 1 Corinthians 15:49)
