Certification with IABC

Becoming a Certified Counselor 

The International Association of Biblical Counselors (IABC) is open to pastors, elders, counselors and lay people across the world who want to help fellow believers deal with their problems by understanding and applying God’s Word. You do not have to be a “professional” counselor to join IABC , but you must have an unswerving commitment to the sufficiency of Scriptures as the essential means for the healing of the inner man.

Certification is open to qualified individuals and organizations who have rejected psychotherapy and have embraced the all-sufficient Word of God as the source of mental and spiritual wholeness. All those seeking membership or certification must be in complete agreement with our Statements of Faith and Practice to join IABC.
