 “All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that
               the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” -2 Timothy 3:16-17

What IS Biblical Counseling?
      Renewing of the mind through Scripture.
      Showing the worthiness of Jesus Christ and His biblical way.
      Putting off old habits of thinking and acting by the Spirit’s strength.
      Putting on the likeness of Christ or the fruit of the Spirit in patterns of growth.
      For the benefit of the counselee and for the glory of God.

What Biblical Counseling IS NOT:
        Biblical Counseling is not Clinical Counseling. No advice of any kind is ever given about medication
            the counselee may have been prescribed.
        Biblical Counseling is not a “quick fix”. It requires a commitment and desire for heart change on the
            part of the counselee.
        If you have specific legal, financial or clinical issues, you should seek advice from a professional
            outside of the church. Our lay counselors will be happy to coordinate your care with those individuals.

Requirements and Expectations:
        Instruction must be Biblical; based on Scripture.
        Not mixed with man’s wisdom.
        Accurate to the best of the counselor’s ability.
        Appropriate to the counselee’s problems, spiritual condition and learning style.
        The counselee is expected to contact the counselor as soon as possible if he/she cannot attend a
          scheduled appointment.
        Repeated missed appointments signify a season of unwillingness to change and may result in a break in
        The counselee will be expected to have a teachable spirit as evidenced by completion of homework
          assignments before the next scheduled session.
        Confidentiality is respected. The counselee can expect confidentiality on the part of the counselor with
          the exceptions being the chance of harm to self or others or when the need arises for confidential
          advice from another lay counselor or professional.

I have read and understand the above information. I do not hold C3 Church, Pastor Matt Fry, or the counselor
responsible for my own behavior or actions. I agree to uphold the requirements and expectations for biblical
counseling to the best of my ability.
