Faith Counseling Institute

Equipping the Church to Disciple the NationsFCI_Logo.png

 

THE VISION

Faith Baptist Church recognizes the need for the church to minister more effectively to hurting people in these last days, and therefore, has formed the Faith Counseling Institute to provide biblical discipleship training for Bible-believing churches.

To meet this need, Faith Counseling Institute hosts annual counselor training conferences onsite at Faith Baptist Church. The goal of the Institute is threefold:

1. To equip the members of Faith Baptist Church to disciple their own families and to serve as effective disciple-makers to those within their sphere of ministry in our own local assembly

2. To equip the missionary family of Faith Baptist Church to effectively disciple those whom God has called them to serve around the world

3. To equip other Bible-believing churches to more effectively disciple those in their congregation and those they reach in their community

Faith Counseling Institute will offer one course each year as the program develops.

Online Counseling Training

Each of the courses offered live at Faith Baptist Church is available online within several months after the conference. Faith Counseling Institute video courses are hosted in a private section of an online delivery service, www.udemy.com.

Course 1 – Foundations of Biblical Counseling

(36 hours of instruction)

The essence of biblical counseling is biblical disciple-making. Biblical counselors see every problem of living as an opportunity to help others grow in Christlikeness through the skillful application of the Word of God in the power of God’s Spirit. The Foundations course provides an overview of the key components in disciple-making with special attention to the doctrine of sanctification as the God-ordained means of change and growth into the likeness of Jesus Christ.

Topics: The essential components of biblical disciple-making, the goal of biblical counseling, what makes counseling biblical, the process of biblical counseling, the use of the Word in counseling, the themes of sanctification, basics for addressing worry and anxiety, forgiveness, and despair and grief, the qualifications for the biblical counselor, current challenges to biblical counseling, and integrating biblical change into the local church.
