We live in a fallen world that has the potential to cause us great pain. Hurts, habits, hangups, history, and hardships can plague us and prevent us from experiencing the abundant life that Jesus intends for us to have, according to John 10:10.

As representatives of the One who heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds (Psalm 127:3), the Buford church of Christ has developed and continues to develop healing ministries designed to address the emotional, mental, relational, and, most importantly, spiritual wounds of hurting individuals.

It is our goal to bear one another’s burdens and so fulfill the law of Christ (Galatians 6:2), to help those who are weary and burdened find rest for their souls in Jesus Christ (Matthew 11:28-30), and to equip the hurting with the practical skills needed to lay aside every weight, and sin so that they can successfully run with endurance the race that is set before them (Hebrews 12:1).

OUR approach

We intend to accomplish these healing objectives by providing educational opportunities such as Bible classes, workshops, or seminars that address specific issues and needs. Additionally, we may create small group meetings that provide support, encouragement, training, and/or accountability. And, in some cases, our healing ministries will take the form of professional or pastoral counseling opportunities.
