IBFC Certification SHOULD NOT be considered the same as state licensing. Most states have laws governing the practice of general counseling, and these laws may vary from state to state. IFBC is motivated to attain the same and greater goals, as state professional licensure.  As Believers we understand that counseling through the Holy Spirit and the Word of God is the ultimate resolution for the troubled soul, yet at the same time, we must maintain the legal guidelines set forth by state regulations for mental health professionals. States have been known to recognize that counseling is a common responsibility of the local church, and for this reason, the state does not tend to interfere with the ministry of counseling. IBFC does not as a habit publicly endorse counselors who have completed our certificate programs unless working in one of our certified organizations.  Certification from our organization simply represents that the counselor has completed the required coursework and passed the required testing within the program.
