Finding hope in the midst of pain through the freedom only Christ can give.

“But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.  Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.  And we who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.” II Corinthians 4:16-18

FBC McAlester’s Counseling Services exist to meet many of the relational, mental, emotional and spiritual needs by providing professional biblical counseling to Southeastern Oklahoma and surrounding communities.
