What is the relationship, if any, between spiritual growth and mental health counseling? What should the Church’s interest be in mental health? Certainly, the Church is not a mental health agency, nor should it be. The Church is the visible body of Christ on Earth. The Church is the pillar of truth. Its primary purpose is proclamation of the truth of the gospel. And the body is the vehicle for demonstrating gospel by the way its members love one another. So, where does the topic of mental health fit into the purpose of the Church?
