How it began

Please Read:  Mark 11:22, Romans 10:17, and Hebrews 11:6

From the right hand of The Father sits The Lord Jesus Christ who initially laid on our senior Pastor James Washington’s heart: to add to our church staff a trained biblical counselor.


In 2009, Pastor Henry Mallon came on board to help our beloved pastor with the congregational counseling load of the church. In 2013, Pastor Ervin Winston was added to the biblical counseling team. Pastors’ Mallon and Winston are focusing on biblical marital and family counseling, along with some discipleship opportunities.

What is Biblical Counseling?

Biblical counseling is intentional Christ-centered counseling: 2 Corinthians 5:17 (NKJV) “Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away, behold, all things have become new.” So a person in Christ has a different outlook or worldview on life and its future. Romans 8:29 (NKJV) “For whom Jesus foreknew, He also predestined [or predetermined] to be conformed [or transformed] to the image of His Son,…” In others words, biblical counseling is another word for discipling individuals in Christ with the Scriptures. Moreover, biblical counseling is not only spiritual, prayerful, and theological, but it is also mindful, moral, ethical, and practical. For example, the Apostle Paul in Galatians 6:1-2 “Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass [fault or sin], you who are spiritual [in Christ] restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted.” (NKJV)
