STANDARDS: Hope Coming Ministries is established
on the belief that the Scriptures are the literal word of God and
contain all of the relevant information necessary to help a person
work through any issue of life. HCM provides individuals and couples
time to talk through and sort out their struggles. Scripture emphasizes
the heart or soul as that personal part of each person that is made
in the image of God and then provides detailed information on how
to examine our hearts. Confusion over heart issues leads to every
non-organic problem faced by mankind today, especially the breakdown
of families. Many, if not all of us, require help in sorting through
the complexities of the belief system that controls our behavior
and emotions. At HCM, we provide this help through our approach
to biblical counseling, which we describe as a "whole Bible"
approach to understanding what it means for us to be image-bearers
who were created to be living in an environment dramatically different
from where we are living today.
HCM is a non-profit, tax-exempt corporation,
providing biblical counseling services on a donation basis, requesting
a minimum donation of $30 per session. HCM counselors are not licensed
by the State as counselors. HCM counselors have been trained and
certified to offer professional biblical counseling and may be licensed
by the State as Pastors. Counselees are always advised to continue
any treatment or medication they are receiving from their medical
care providers while receiving counseling at HCM.
HCM does not discriminate against any person
for any reason.
However, counselees must be able to rationally
reason through matters that are discussed. A person who is unable
to be rational and who suffers from a mental illness is not a good
candidate for counseling and will be referred.
