ACBC Africa exists to encourage quality biblical counselling in Africa by training and certifying competent biblical counsellors in local churches.
Association of Certified Biblical Counselors—Africa
Paul wrote to the Christians in Rome, “I myself am satisfied about you, my brothers, that you yourselves are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge and able to instruct one another.” He was confident that the Christians in Rome were mature enough to counsel one another. What about you and your local church? Are you able to help your church members (and unbelievers) who are struggling with life-dominating sins such as severe depression, marriage problems, extreme anxiety or anger problems? If not, then the Association of Certified Biblical Counsellors (ACBC Africa) may be for you.
The overarching vision of ACBC Africa is the establishment and improvement of the quality of Biblical Counselling in biblically based churches in Africa. This will strengthen Christians’ lives and influence in the communities and countries where these churches minister the Gospel.
ACBC Africa exalts Christ in His greatness and majesty. The primary focus of Scripture is the exaltation of Christ and not man’s personal success. Man’s fulfilment and satisfaction is found in fellowship with Christ. The Scriptures in conjunction with the Holy Spirit and the care of the church body are sufficient for growth and every spiritual and emotional problem. We are committed to the inspiration, inerrancy and sufficiency of Scripture for biblical counselling. As such the integration of the concepts and techniques of secular psychology is unnecessary and at the end, unfruitful.
