Faith Therapy is a biblically derived and integrated method for psychological healing and spiritual growth based on the process of salvation by faith. Biblical models, principles and methods are used to identify the root cause of a problem, remove any hindrance to spiritual growth and develop the faith necessary to overcome the problem.
In order to fill the gap between a more superficial application of biblical verses and the more in-depth therapy which has relied heavily on secular counseling theory and methods, Faith Therapy was developed during the last 15 years. It began with an attempt to understand how the process of salvation or wholeness was achieved by faith in God. As this revelation began to unfold through the story of Abraham, the father of faith, it led to a widening understanding of additional models, principles and methods that effectively dealt with more and more deeply rooted complex psychological problems. The tenants of Faith Therapy were derived directly from the Bible, as God provided greater insights over a period of years.
Faith Therapy Curriculum was developed over a period of years based on the Faith Therapy methodology but expanded to cover all of the most important topics commonly encountered in the church counseling and life coaching environment. It provides both self-help resources for individuals and college curriculum for effectively training Christian counselors and Bible-based life coaches.
Not only has this curriculum proven to be very easy to teach and implement in churches, but it has proven to be an extremely effective and appropriate means of evangelism in this culture and may be applicable as missions in other cultures. All of our methodology directly includes evangelism since without salvation by faith the best that counseling can do is make more effective participants for the rat race of life and does nothing to prepare them for eternity.
