Jesus Saves

Our Philosophy

LAPM’s distinct Gospel-centered approach addresses the root causes of human struggles. Our counseling and conciliation service providers view people as created beings, made in God’s image and for His glory, spoiled by the Fall, but redeemed by faith in Jesus Christ. We know that pain and suffering of people is a difficult reality and because of Christ’s finished work on our behalf, we can engage our present sufferings with confidence of His presence and power.

The immediate goal in caring for hurting people is to help them gain insight into their situation and life in light of God’s Word and His purposes. We strive to provide a safe and supportive environment as we help identify and address heart issues. Redemptive counsel may include both words of compassion and loving confrontation in an atmosphere of trust, encouragement and respect. The ultimate goal is to help others grow in faith, knowledge, and love for Jesus Christ as He increasingly transforms them into His likeness. The staff of Live at Peace Ministries are committed to excellence and strive to live in loving obedience to Jesus Christ.

Our Distinctives

We have several important distinctives.  First, we are a unique blend of counseling and Christian conciliation (a process leading to reconciliation). This approach serves to identify core issues that are at the root of struggling relationships and then leads parties in a process that restores and heals their relationship. Secondly, we believe the most effective approach is one that is both intensive and comprehensive. We use story telling over a multi-day period to draw out the core issues that need to be resolved. This process is also highly educational, equipping one for better relational skills as we instruct and lead you through transformation in beliefs and actions. Lastly, we believe in the importance of the church and community in helping the process of encouraging and sustaining the necessary changes needed by individuals and couples.

Everyone draws from a set of core beliefs in what they think, feel, say and do. This includes all LAPM staff members. Because we believe that the Bible is the Word of God concerning faith and life, we strive to base our practices on the principles found in Scripture. Information gained through medical sources, social science research, and psychology is often helpful in identifying problems and appropriate interventions, however all interventions must meet the criteria of biblical faithfulness.  For many people, the traditional model of therapy (one hour a week) unnecessarily prolongs the healing process. LAPM uses both traditional and out-of-the-box processes in helping hurting people. Transformation occurs when individuals commit the needed time to focus on the deeper issues of the heart in a redemptive counseling or conciliation process.


We Believe

We Believe: 1. In one God, Creator of all things, holy, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in a loving unity of three equally divine Persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. 2. That God has spoken in the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, through the words of human authors. 3. That God created Adam and Eve in His image, but they sinned when tempted by Satan. 4. That Jesus Christ is God incarnate, fully God and fully man, one Person in two natures. 5. That Jesus Christ, as our representative and substitute, shed His blood on the cross as the perfect, all-sufficient sacrifice for our sins. His atoning death and victorious resurrection constitute the only ground for salvation. 6. That the Holy Spirit, in all that He does, glorifies the Lord Jesus Christ. 7. That the true church comprises all who have been justified by God’s grace through faith alone in Christ alone. 8. That God’s justifying grace must not be separated from His sanctifying power and purpose. 9. in the personal, bodily return of our Lord Jesus Christ. 10. That God commands everyone everywhere to believe the gospel by turning to Him in repentance and receiving the Lord Jesus Christ.
