Ministry
Philosophy

As a ministry, we believe that the Bible contains all of the

promises and principles needed for true peacemaking.

These principles are woven into every aspect of our work

and ministry. They also give rise to four central convictions

that we have identified as our distinctives: 

 

1. The Centrality of Christ – We believe that genuine peace between people can be found only through Jesus Christ. Therefore, we encourage people in conflict to believe the gospel and trust in Christ, and to faithfully rely on the promises and obey the commands that he has given to us in Scripture (see John 14:27; 2 Cor. 5:18-19; Col. 3:15-16; 2 Tim. 3:16). 

 

2. The Responsibility of the Church – We believe that peacemaking is an essential ministry of the local church, not a task reserved for professional mediators or lawyers. Therefore, we encourage Christians to take unresolved conflicts to their church families, which are called by God to restore peace by promoting biblical justice and reconciliation (see Matt. 18:17; 1 Cor. 6:4; Eph. 3:10; Heb. 13:17).

 

3. The Necessity of Biblical Counseling – We believe that destructive conflict comes from desires that battle within people's hearts. Therefore, we do not merely try to resolve surface issues. We also counsel parties to find their fulfillment in Christ, renounce sinful desires and actions that have contributed to conflict, and seek genuine reconciliation with others (see James 4:1-3; Gal. 2:20; Prov. 28:13; Rom. 15:14).

 

4. The Comprehensiveness of God's Word – We believe that God's Word is totally authoritative and completely sufficient for all aspects of life, and that his peacemaking commands and promises apply to every conflict a Christian can encounter. Therefore, we work across the entire spectrum of conflict, helping people to resolve everything from school-yard quarrels to family disputes, business conflicts, congregational divisions, and multi-million dollar lawsuits (see 2 Tim. 3:16-17).

We as a family have had the pleasure of doing counselling with both Ruth and Debbie at Heart to Heart Ministries. Their counsel is based on the truth found in scripture which is what we truly wanted as a family, but is very difficult to find these days. Both are very kind and compassionate listeners who do not judge but rather they gently guided us to a better understanding of who we are. They gave us material to read/work on at home which was very helpful. It helped us to understand concepts between appointments, thus making our meeting times that much more productive. I would not hesitate to recommend this ministry to anyone is ready to face the skeletons in their closet. We all have them, so the sooner we face them the better. With the help of their wise counsel we were able to resolve some longstanding issues and misunderstanding both in our marriage and with our children. Thank you for all you have done for our family!
