The primary responsibility of the church is to exhort and teach the principles of the Word of God in order that you might grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. (Eph 3:18-19)
In order to help make personal application of this knowledge, profession and expert help is recommended and encourage. Our pastors and leaders regularly participate in individual and group counseling to grow and overcome. While we do not formally endorse any particular organizations, experience has shown the following individuals and groups to be effective and godly in there approach.
