Foundational Principles

The following statements form the foundation of ABBO's approach:

  •     We recognize the Bible as the inspired Word of God.
  •     We use the Bible as source and standards for our counselling approach and practice.
  •     Our understanding and use of Scripture rest on reformational expository principles.
  •     Insights from theology and social sciences are tested against Scripture.
  •     Individuals are guided towards finding their identity in Christ and living their unique life purpose.
  •     We believe in holistic change: both in the heart and behaviour of people.
  •     People in need are ministered to regardless of their religious convictions, denomination, race, language or gender.
  •     We aspire to transparency, accountability, effectiveness and excellence.
  •     We serve our fellow-humans for the love of, to the glory of and as commanded by the triune God.
