What is Christian Counseling?

Refuge Ministry Center (RMC) is a counseling ministry of Ramoth Baptist Church. We were established to provide sound biblical counsel, encouragement, and guidance through the issues and concerns that plague the lives of believers and non-believers. Being led by God and His word, we seek to help those in need, with God's truth and direction. There is solace to those in despair if they seek God's assistance in their lives. We are a part of that assistance, as we offer love, support, and ministry dedicated to helping people become whole again through the healing and restoration of God's holy power.
