Philosophy

Offering the blood of His only son, God has covered all our sins with a single, redeeming scarlet thread, woven throughout the tapestry of our lives. This tapestry tells the story of our earthly journey and is colored and textured by many relationships and experiences. Though frayed by problems and challenges, it can – through Christian counseling – be re-knit into a picture of love and harmony.
