When people hear the phrase “Christian counseling,” it’s easy to consider it therapy or psychology with a little bit of Jesus mixed in, or specialized help for “the really messed up people.”

At its heart, gospel-centered counseling is simply restorative discipleship and is therefore a significant part of accomplishing our purpose at North Hills Church: to Believe God’s Word, Connect with God’s Family, and Share God’s Story.

Counseling is available for those who regularly attend North Hills Church and consider North Hills their church home. When appropriate and available, we provide counseling for individuals, married couples, families and engaged couples, as well as marriage mentoring and financial coaching. Please request care below and our Intake & Advancement Counselor will promptly be in touch with you. Or you may contact us at or 864.609.5321 ext. 237.


Restorative: A Holistic View of Brokenness

Gospel-centered counseling is restorative because it begins with a holistic view of brokenness. We need counseling because we are fallen people living in a fallen world.

Our hearts are affected deeply by sin

Our own personal brokenness and sin are reflected in thinking that is clouded, affections that are pulled toward idols, and behavior that is both sinful and destructive.

We are surrounded and affected by brokenness

Not only are we sinners, we are also sufferers: We are affected physically, spiritually, relationally, and culturally.

Our relationship with God is broken

Ultimately, our sinful hearts reflect our broken relationship with God. We do not properly understand, worship, love, and obey him.

Healthy gospel-centered counseling always includes an understanding of how the active human heart, with all of its own sinfulness, responds to physical, spiritual, relational, and cultural influences.

Discipleship: A Holistic Environment for Change

Counseling is also discipleship, which means that the best way to address our brokenness is with a holistic environment, focused on gospel-centered change.


At the center of any environment that produces spiritual change is the gospel—the person and work of Jesus.

God's Word

As we open the Bible, God reveals both our own hearts and his heart for us.

God's Story of Redemption

The beauty of the work of Jesus on the cross is seen most clearly in light of the bigger story of redemption recorded in the Bible.

The Holy Spirit

God’s Spirit is the one who comes alongside to help, to expose our sin, to open our eyes to see the beauty and power of Jesus, and to produce genuine spiritual fruit.


Prayer is an expression of humility and need, an acknowledgement that God loves to lavish His children with grace, and that his intervention is our only hope for change.


Christian community is essential to change, because it is the best place for God’s people to experience a gospel-centered, spirit-dependent, Word-saturated, prayer-filled environment.

“Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into Him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.”
