“Ministry, when ministered in love, brings Jesus into the ‘now’ of people’s lives. If we trust Him, there’s no limit to what we can do” –Presiding Bishop Charles Edward Blake
The West Angeles Counseling Center offers Bible-based services, programs, and classes that provide spiritual support to you and your family both in times of abundance and in times of trial. Through the gospel of Jesus Christ, our Christian counseling combines modern methods of counseling with scriptural principles, using biblical truths as the reference point for integration.
