The Association of Biblical Counselors began as a basic website in 2005 serving several dozen members. Today, with God’s continued blessing we have grown in capacity to serve nationally and internationally by providing resources and training to several thousand people. Our aim is to build up the Body of Christ by offering thoughtful application of Scripture to the hearts and lives of others.

There are many approaches to counseling within Christianity. ABC’s particular approach will emphasize a robust theology of care stressing the roles of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in the transformation process. We seek to draw from God’s special revelation, the Bible, to build a model of counseling wherein constructs such as justification, sanctification, glorification, sin, depravity, grace (to name a few) are practically applied. Our ministry is structured in such a way that a broad spectrum of members may be well served. Whether you are a professional seeking a deeper specialization in applying the Bible in your practice, a pastor seeking to connect your theological understanding with your role as shepherd and counselor, or a believer longing to fulfill your call to “make disciples”, ABC has created specific resources to meet each of these unique positions.

Should you choose to become a member of ABC please know we are honored to serve you. We are working continually to provide services and resources that will reflect excellence so that our members may benefit richly from being a part of our organization. Thank you for considering the Association of Biblical Counselors as a potential investment in your personal ministry. May the Lord richly bless you as you seek to serve His name!
