Life can be hard. 

We all have times when we just need a helping hand to get through difficult circumstances. Some of these trials are caused by our choices, as we reap the consequences of our decisions. Sometimes we are confused or depressed or struggling in one area of life, and don’t know why. Sometimes we just need encouragement with Biblical truth and love.



Frequently Asked Questions


What kind of concerns do people that come for counseling have?
We see folks with many kinds of problems, such as (but not limited to) the common areas listed below:
  • Marriage crisis
  • Premarital concerns
  • Addictions
  • Sexual sins
  • Personal matters for career and life direction
  • Dealing with emotions such as: worry, anxiety, depression, anger
In all cases, we use the Bible, God’s Sufficient Word, to answer the problems of life.
What does it cost?
Since Lakewood Baptist Church provides the facilities and administration, and the counselors volunteer their time, we can offer Biblical counseling free of charge. We just ask that you be faithful to the time you commit to when you schedule your appointments. Also, we ask you to be honest. It is very difficult, if not impossible, to help you if you aren’t completely open. We also ask you to do weekly homework assignments that will encourage lasting change.
When is counseling scheduled?
At this time, our counseling is offered on Mondays from 10:00am – 6:00pm.
