We are the Decision Counselors Ministry. We enhance relationships with JESUS CHRIST through Prayer and Assurance or Reassurance. How do we accomplish that?We share scripture from GOD's Holy Word the Bible. The primary Bible verses that are in our weaponry...mainly consist of John 3:16, Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 10:9-10, John 5:24, and Romans 10:13. In addition, we give support with personal matters through Prayer and/or referral counseling.
What's our mission? To be forever submitted to GOD, His Word, and His Leadership. To demonstrate Spiritual Maturity, Personal Concern, Love, Fellowship and Stewardship. To give Spiritual direction to new converts or members regarding their relationship with CHRIST. Our Vision leads us to know and promote the Biblical principles and requirements for Salvation and to willingly provide that knowledge to all people who respond to the invitation to CHRIST. We are dedicated to encouraging people through Prayer and continuing our personal growth in JESUS CHRIST. With that being said, love helps us fulfill our purpose to win souls by offering those people responding to the invitation an opportunity to trust in JESUS CHRIST as their Lord and Savior, assure Salvation, or assist in Rededication through Scripture while offering encouragement through Prayer. Ultimately we need you to manifest Philippians 2 (NLT) 10 that at the name of JESUS every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue declare that JESUS CHRIST is Lord, to the glory of GOD the Father.
