Statement of Practice

Authentic Biblical Counseling is rooted and grounded on the inerrancy, authority, and sufficiency of the Word of God in all matters regarding life and faith.

To safeguard against biblically inconsistent counseling practices which may be illegitimately labeled "biblical, " clear standards of practice need to be established and articulated.

The following are the criteria we have chosen as gauges for distinguishing authentic Biblical Counseling and Counselors from those which are not.

They are our means of providing a high measure of trustworthiness of "best practices " for all those who desire to be affiliated with the Fallen Soldiers March Biblical Counseling Network.

Accordingly, Fallen Soldiers March Biblical Counseling Network counselors affirm and agree to the following:

The Scriptures are fully sufficient, through the empowering presence of the Holy Spirit, to address all of humanity's needs in all matters of life and faith (2 Peter I: 3-4; 2 Timothy 3:16). Therefore, my counseling methods, practices, and techniques will be based upon the clear biblical principles and categories, and not upon theories of personality, model of man, psychotherapies, or philosophies derived from secular sources (1 Corinthians 3:19) .

All mankind is in need of personal salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. If those I counsel
do not possess this salvation, a primary objective of my counseling must be clear, Spirit-led communication of
Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord (Romans 3:23, 6:23; Matthew 28:19-20).

Counsel and teach the Supremacy of Jesus Christ in order to lead counselees away from
a humanistic focus on self and to a proper focus on Him (Luke 9:23; Romans 12:1-2) .

Honor the sanctity of life, marriage, and family as articulated throughout the Scriptures, and to do my utmost when counseling to
reinforce these truths (Psalm 139:13-14; Genesis 2:24; Malachi 2:16; Proverbs 23:25; Colossians 3:20).

I will model my counseling philosophy after the instruction Paul gave to the believers at Thessalonica to warn those who are irresponsible or rebellious, comfort the discouraged and fainthearted, strength and help the weak, be patient with everyone. " (I Thessalonians 5:14)

God empowers me, I will live my life and conduct my relationships in godliness and holiness before Him, with the goal of living out the truths that I am teaching (Philippians 2 :12-13).

The spiritual authority delegated to the Church by Christ, who is its Head.
I will evidence this by my involvement in a local church fellowship and by teaching those whom I counsel to involve themselves in
a local church fellowship as well, thus working in concert with the Church rather than in competition against it (Hebrews 10:25).
