Wheaton College exists "for Christ and His Kingdom" and Counseling Center staff members are Christians who see their work as having a Christ-centered purpose. Christian counseling is an activity endorsed by God to help His people who are distressed, uncertain and hurting. Christian counseling is a global activity required of the church at large, and Christian counselors in particular, aimed at obeying the Scriptural mandate to "Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ" (Galatians 6:2).
Within this perspective, the Christian counselor applies Biblical principles and practices whenever they are available. He or she integrates counseling techniques that are consistent with the Christian faith, professionally sound and based on the best training and practice. The staff at the WCCC are expected to adhere to the standards of professional ethics prescribed by Wheaton College and the Christian Association for Psychological Studies >>.
