Welcome to the Peninsula Biblical Counseling Ministries (PBCM)
The PBCM is a counseling ministry devoted to the Glory of God and the furtherance of His kingdom by working in partnership and fellowship with the local churches of Charleston, South Carolina. PBCM exists to support and encourage the local church in promoting discipleship through biblical counseling, seminars, and training.
PBCM is a biblical counseling ministry. The ministry of Biblical counseling is committed to the orthodox belief that Scripture provides the only trustworthy, dependable, and authoritative guide for what Christians are to believe and how we are to live (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
A biblical counselor is trained in the use of Scripture and the principles of Biblical counseling. This counseling is not dependent on or does it consider mans' wisdom, opinions, experience, or concepts of behavior (Isaiah 55:8-11), to distinguish it from fallible human thoughts and plans. Biblical counseling seeks to bring the full range of Biblical truth to focus on the counselee's need (Hebrews 4:12-16). It stresses the power of God’s word to enter the deepest recesses of a person’s being.
PBCM stresses the importance of “real change” that happens in the heart of man. When an individual has a saving relationship with Jesus Christ, are indwelt with the Holy Spirit, who convicts of sins, and words with the revealing truth of Scripture to equip a person.
The main objective in the ministry of Biblical counseling is culminated in, “change of the heart”. God's word (Holy Scripture) contains all we need for life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3-4). The word of God must be applied to the heart of man, resulting in being transformed that happens by the renewing of our minds and these internal changes result in life changes! This is not behavior modification. It is a complete transformation that brings glory to God by the power of the Holy Spirit.
The PBCM is committed to assisting local churches by providing sound, biblical, Christ-centered discipleship counseling ministering God's complete truth as found in the Scriptures. Through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we seek to bring the love, healing, and wholeness of Jesus Christ to those suffering emotional, mental, and spiritual pain. We also provide resources and ongoing support services such as discipleship, mentoring, spiritual life coaching, training, seminars and workshops.
This is why PBCM not only offers ministry training and seminars for equipping women, but men as well. Our Pastoral Counseling Ministry component makes our ministry to men (particularly pastors and men in leadership), families and their churches complete and comprehensive.
