Counselling Principles

Faith Restoration Ministries International [FRMI]
Counselling Principles

The Holy Bible: The main Text at STC

Our counselling principles are based upon the
Word of God.

For the word of God [isquick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and [is] a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12).
All scripture [is] given by inspiration of God, and [isprofitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.” (Timothy 3:16-17).

We Depend upon
The Authority of Scriptures and the Holy Spirit in
Christian Counselling

“And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:” (Ephesians 4:11-12).
Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.
And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which works all in all.” (I Corinthians 12:4-6).

We Counsel from the Word
Prayer, and the Holy Spirit

Prayer is a great weapon against the enemy

Along with the Word, we believe in prayer and the power of the Holy Spirit to direct the counselling session. This is an Online Professional Pastoral Counselling Service providing non-traditional; that is, non-secular principles, but strictly based on the Christian doctrine.

The focus is to use the Bible with its practical teachings as the main authority for counselling, which, through those Scriptures result in healing and deliverance (Matthew 10:1). The information in the program has been put together to help counselees understand about Faith Restoration Counselling Ministries Counselling Services. ​These items must be read before requesting Counselling.

​Dr. Stuart is an Ordained Minister, and Licensed Clinical Pastoral Counsellor [LCPC] certification earned from National Christian Counsellors Association [NCCA].​​

​Through the Inspired Word, the Ministry of Christian Counselling fulfills the need for Teaching new skills to deal with life’s problems, and Healing from brokenness. “And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.” (I Corinthians 12:28).

  • Based on the authority of Scriptures, Faith Restoration Counselling Services [FRCS] uses the Word, and depends on the Holy Spirit for wisdom and discernment during the sessions. Therefore, all Counselees must understand that this is a Christian service based on the Word of God.
