Philosophy: What Guides CCEF's Counseling?

CCEF Counseling

As part of our mission to restore Christ to counseling, CCEF offers counseling services at our various locations. If you are considering counseling for yourself, or are looking for a resource for a friend or family member, we offer help you can trust because it is rooted in biblical truth.

Here is a summary of what guides our counseling:

The Bible Speaks

We believe the Bible is more than a book of facts; its truths are meant to make a difference in our lives. God intends biblical truth to touch and transform every area of our lives. But everyone faces moments when the truths of the Bible don’t seem to make a difference. “Can the hope that the Bible offers really speak to my depression?” “Can the peace that the Bible promises really help my anxiety?” “Can the love that is revealed in the Bible change even my marriage?” At CCEF, we believe that the Bible speaks into all of life’s problems, and in certain seasons of life each of us may need the careful thought and prayerful wisdom of another to help us make the connections that make a difference.

It’s About a Relationship

The Bible speaks to every area of our lives, but the Bible isn’t simply a recipe book for happiness. Ultimately, the Bible points us to a relationship with a person—Jesus Christ. The Bible was given to reveal Christ as the one who is able to make all things new. We believe real and lasting change occurs when people know themselves and their problems within a living and vital relationship with Jesus Christ.

Our Counselors Are Ready to Help

The most important qualification of our counselors is that they have come to know Christ out of their own experiences of need. They bring the understanding and compassion experienced in their own relationship with Christ into their care for those who come to them for help. Furthermore, our counselors have formal education and training in counseling and in the Bible.

If this is the kind of counsel you seek, and you are located in the Philadelphia area, we invite you to contact us at 215-884-7676 to set up an appointment. We also have locations in New England and Montana.
