Purpose

What We Are About

In the Master of Arts in Biblical Counseling (MABC) at The Master’s University (TMU), we train both men and women to become effective biblical counselors under the authority of the local church. We believe what the Bible says about itself, that it is inerrant in every word and therefore sufficient for our lives when it comes to soul care (Psalm 19:7–9; 2 Timothy 3:16–17; 2 Peter 1:3–4). That is why psychology has no place in true biblical counseling. The Word of God can change people at a level that psychology can never touch. Men and women who complete their MABC at TMU will be thoroughly trained in the theology and practice of biblical counseling to help people change and grow from the inside out.

The church of Jesus Christ also needs you to care and counsel hurting people around you, and we can help! Come to our program and we will prepare you with rigorous education and hands-on discipleship that is requisite for the care of precious souls. Learn what true biblical counseling is, how to use the Bible accurately and effectively, and practice it under the supervision of our faculty who have decades of counseling, academic, and pastoral experience. Join us to become equipped to minister the Word of God to those who are face to face with the most serious problems of life. Praise the Lord, there is no problem too grave that cannot be met by the sufficient scriptures!
