Membership & Certification

Membership with the International Association of Biblical Counselors (IABC) is established and maintained through the cooperative endeavor of organizations, individuals, and churches. Two classes of membership, individual and organizational, are open to any persons or organizations subscribing to IABC’s philosophy, statement of faith, and covenant of personal or organizational participation. 

Certification with IABC is for those who have become an active member with IABC. Certification allows for counselors to meet a high standard of counseling excellence and biblical integrity, promotes a uniform approach to counseling, and provides cohesion in the Biblical Counseling movement. Those seeking certification, whether on the individual or organizational level, must be in complete agreement with IABC’s philosophy, statement of faith, and covenant of participation, and must have met IABC’s requirements for certification. 

Please Note: If you are a IABC certified biblical counselor or member looking to renew with IABC you will be prompted to login in order to make your payment. If you have any questions regarding your login information please contact our Member Services Office at 1-844-THE-IABC.
