The purpose of the Ministry of Biblical Counseling at First Baptist Belton is to provide biblically-based, clinically-competent, and Spirit-led counsel to promote the emotional, psychological and spiritual health of individuals, marriages and families. It has been our prayer and desire to begin such a ministry for more than 20 years, and we are excited to see God open up this new branch of outreach for both our congregation and the surrounding community.
