LIVING WATER

A Biblical Counseling Ministry

Of Highland Baptist Church


 Welcome to the Living Water webpage. In accordance with the purposes of Highland Baptist Church, our counseling ministry seeks to bring glory to God by helping individuals, couples, and families know Christ, develop into Christ-like maturity, and equip them to serve in the world as a part of Christ's body. Along with individual and marriage counseling, we offer marriage workshops, grief support groups, crisis intervention, as well as a host of other ministries aimed at strengthening people through Jesus Christ and the power of His Word.


Living Water is a counseling ministry made up of Christian counselors, volunteers, and interns whose aim is to help you in your pursuit of a more fulfilling life in Christ. We define Christian counseling as:

         

A relational process in which a faithful follower of Christ utilizes his or her God-given gifts, training, knowledge, and experiences, following the direction of the Holy Spirit, in the task of walking with others, toward spiritual maturity, emotional health, cognitive truth, relational stability and behavioral accountability in a caring and supportive environment.


Our hope and prayer for you, if you begin your Christian Counseling journey at Living Water, is that your life will be forever changed through the power of the Holy Spirit and God’s Word. The Holy Spirit works through Christian counseling by the truth and power of His Word.
