Trinity Baptist Church of Indianapolis Counseling Ministry – Our Commitment:

Biblical: This counseling ministry is designed to help care seekers see God’s direction in moving forward by reconciling their various life situations to scripture. The lens in which we approach counseling is unapologetically biblical. We believe God’s word is the only tool you need. Those who receive care within this ministry will be aided by being asked to accept and adhere to the principles in which the Bible teaches.   

Competence: This counseling ministry will develop and refine its gifts and skills to act competently in any situation that requires its service. Although, there may not be the adequate ability to assist every care seeker, our commitment is to have the knowledge to refer and secure adequate resources wisely for as many individuals who seek assistance through us. As such, this ministry is committed to a lifelong process of study and growth that is prepared for continued service.

Justice:  This counseling ministry believes in providing fair and equal treatment to all care seekers. This does not mean this ministry agrees with or will condone that which we believe to contradict the teachings of scripture.  Yet, we believe it important to exhibit the just character of God in dealing with all people with the hopes of sharing the gospel for His glory.

Ethics:  Our counselors will operate, pursue and live under an ethic that upholds the highest standards of Christian morality. We will contend to be imitators of Christ (Eph. 5:1) and seek to consistently model spiritual and emotional health.  Counselors will not use the counseling session as an opportunity to meet their own needs; the sessions are for the benefit of the counselee. This will be attended to by pursuing our ethical standards.
