Needed: Distinctively Christian Marriage Counseling
Distinctively “Christian” marriage counseling can help couples learn and apply relationship skills and tools. By offering biblical principles and applications, good Christian marriage counseling can help couples deal more effectively with the stresses of family life that are harming their marriage.
Cornerstone’s marriage counseling model operates upon the biblical foundation that God’s truth and grace can empower individuals, couples, and families to experience healing within themselves and in their relationships with each other. As this occurs they can become empowered to engage in the process of building and sustaining a happy, healthy marriage.
Over the past 25 years, we have been blessed to be used of God to enable thousands of couples to experience and sustain caring, intimate and fulfilling relationships, while helping them grow in in an experience of wholeness within themselves.
Our approach is grounded upon a similar belief that the greatest human need is love. God designed us for love. He designed marriage so that each spouse could be both a recipient of love and a channel of love through which that love could flow to the other. We can best love our spouse by first experiencing God’s love through an ongoing personal, intimate connection with Jesus Christ.
As we experience the love of our Creator God and His truth, we can then be empowered to work through the relational blockages in our lives, empowering us to gain the understanding so that growth and lasting change can occur. It is a biblically, therapeutic approach characterized by rooted in the belief that God’s Spirit can minister in and through godly wisdom, compassion and unconditional acceptance. It is these things that provides an atmosphere where individuals and spouses can experience an in-depth, accelerated healing experience.
We believe that effective Christian marriage counseling reassures our clients that God loves us, that He cares and that He desires to be a central part of our lives and marriages. Authentic Christian marriage counseling actively seeks to encourage and foster these precepts.
In all that we do, we seek to follow Christ’s Commandment to “love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your mind and with all your strength, and love your neighbor as yourself,” (Matthew 22:37). Our approach to marriage counseling is based on the belief that in marriage, the inability one or both spouses to know and experience God’s love is what leads to the causation of each spouses’ individual issues and the couple’s relationship problems with each other.
