Downtown Biblical Counseling

At the Downtown Campus, we provide biblical counseling for a range of struggles including marital difficulties, depression, anxiety, broken relationships, anger, sexual struggles, guilt, shame, and parenting difficulties, etc.

If for some reason we don’t have experience in your area of struggle, we will be happy to connect you with a trusted area counselor while also considering ways the church can support and care for you.

Who can receive counseling at the Downtown Campus?
Members of Bethlehem who regularly worship at the Downtown Campus can receive counseling Downtown. If capacity permits, at times we are able to provide counseling for regular attendees.

How does the counseling process work?
When a Downtown Campus member reaches out, we are committed to beginning the process by connecting that member with an elder or ministry leader to help oversee his/her care.

  • This care may include counseling with a Downtown elder, ministry leader, trained biblical counselor connected to our campus, or other counseling resource.
  • We will seek to provide this care in tandem with other resources—such as one’s small group—that are present in the life of the person reaching out for help.

We may be able to provide this level of care for regular attendees Downtown. However, if not, we are glad to provide a referral to other trusted counseling resources. If you are interested in receiving counseling, please fill out our intake form.

See Bethlehem’s “Guiding Philosophy for Counseling.”
