Counseling

Greenville FCC strives to follow our mission, which is fourfold:

  • to evangelize the lost
  • to edify the saved
  • to minister to the needy
  • to be the salt and light in the community

There may be a time in your life when it is difficult to follow that mission because of circumstances and decisions in your life. When those challenging times occur, we encourage our congregation and community to seek support within the body of Christ. Yet, some challenges are more complex. We provide staff that is trained in Biblical Pastoral Counseling.

Biblical Counseling is the process where God’s Word is related to those struggling with the issues of life and inter-personal relationships.

Please contact any of our ministry staff for counseling during our counselor transition.

Help with Forgiveness

Prayer of Living Forgiveness

4 PROMISES OF FORGIVENESS

Help with Conflict

All conflict must be examined inside the biblical story.

The 4 “G’s” for Resolving Conflict

  1. Get the log out of your eye. Matthew 7:5 – Recognize your sinful habits, attitude, past-weaknesses-depend on God. Repent & confess (words, sarcasm, gossip, grumbling, complaining, lies, exaggerations.)
  2. Go & Show Your Brother His Fault
    A. Confront in a loving way.
    B. Seek to lift a burden in their life. (Matthew 18:15 & Galatians 6:1)
  3. Consider Overlooking the Offense. Minor not serious hurts, the cause of Christ, or others, not hurting offenders or damaging a relationship. Proverbs 19:11 & 1 Peter 4:8
  4. Be Reconciled Matthew 6:12 & Luke 11:4
    Matthew 18:23-35 & Colossians 3:13
