EBI is committed to the biblical counseling model. We believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the answer to the counselee’s most basic problems. The Bible is the counselor’s main tool. The Holy Spirit imparts gifts to the counselor to guide and give hope through the Scripture. Prayer and dependence upon God are essential parts of biblical counseling. While we do not sit in judgment against other counseling models, we will teach and practice this model without apology.Click here to see our counseling philosophy.
