“Our goal is to be a church of biblical counseling—we want these truths to permeate everything we do….Call it counseling; call it specialized discipleship. It doesn’t matter. We want to be a progressive sanctification machine, a discipleship factory. We want people growing and changing where god’s Word and Sprit make each of us more like Jesus Christ through careful attention to the inner person. That is what bring honor to God….The goal of our biblical counseling training just like the goal of all our ministries is to glorify God by winning people to Jesus Christ (for unsaved counselee) and equipping them to be more faithful disciples (*for saved counselees)” (Steve Viars, quoted in Robert Kelleman, Equipping Counselors for Your Church, p. 39).
