God promises in His holy, all-sufficient, inerrant, inspired, authoritative word that if we set ourselves apart from the ways of the world and walk with God, He will be our God and will change our lives. The believer is called to godly living, but the issue at hand is this:

  • How does the believer accomplish this?
  • Where is the sufficient resource for godly living?

The natural mind thinks the power to godly living can be manufactured by self-discipline and human effort. But that is the way of the flesh. The Lord directs us to draw on a different resource. God’s provision alone brings sufficiency for godly living.

The International Association of Biblical Counselors exists to proclaim Christ, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus (Colossians 1:28). With our headquarters in Colorado and Member Services in Missouri, IABC has been serving the church since 2000.

Our desire is to allow for freedom of convictions on doctrinal matters provided that any interpretation is based on the Bible alone and that no such interpretation shall become an issue that hinders the ministry of biblical counseling to which God has called us. We desire to avoid doctrinal extremes and maintain a balanced leadership team seeking to be doctrinally sound, shying away from the present day extremes. "...that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting." Eph. 4:14



Biblical hope is the certainty that God has, does, and will fulfill His promises to His people. Living in the certainty of His promises to us can not only change our lives but it can inspire change in the lives of those around us. Join us as we... "encourage one another to love and good deeds" Hebrews 10:24-25. “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1.


-Bill Hines

One of my favorite verses is Hebrews 10:24, 25, "...and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the day drawing near." I probably have not missed more than two annual IABC conferences since we began meeting together some 25 years ago. Each time, without exception, I have come away very encouraged. As such I am so looking forward to meeting with you again in July. I hope to see you in Illinois.

How wonderful it is to come to the IABC conference and meet other men and women who love God‘s Word—whose lives have been changed and who are helping others in practical ways to glorify the Lord! Being around other people who understand what biblical counseling is all about is energizing, and it is a joy to receive insights from them that can be taken straight into our own lives as well as those of our counselees. Finding out about new materials—books, booklets, articles, videos, etc.—is like being in a candy store!
