Why WE're HEre

First and foremost, we are here because we are called to serve. We believe those we serve are called to thrive. Our journey started in 2009 when founders Steve and Jeana Luther felt called to start a wellness center focusing on body, soul, and spirit. They realized that care was too often compartmentalized with different disciplines disregarding or unaware of work in other areas. Their commitment was to offer services that integrated all areas of life to provide holistic healing and wellness. To follow God’s calling, Steve, a licensed counselor, left his doctoral program to fully submit himself to this calling. Jeana, a chiropractor, sought to focus on natural approaches to health and wellness. As things progressed, the need for services outside of the local area was apparent and we began to offer online services across the country and around the world. It was out of this aspect of Grace Wellness Center that NuWell was born.

NuWell is a completely online counseling, coaching, and wellness organization with a commitment to serve people while removing limitations related to location, time, and availability. NuWell is also committed to providing Biblically sound and clinically-informed care in every session. We hold to this integrationist approach where we respect scientific understanding and evidence-based approaches, however, we do not implement those approaches to such a degree that it contradicts or takes precedence over Scripture and our commitment to Biblical truth.

Our counselors and coaches have diverse theological backgrounds (while all holding to essential doctrines listed in our belief statement), training, experience, credentials, and specialties. This allows us to work with categorically, the best counselors and coaches to guide a diverse clientele. While all of our counselors come from a Christian/Biblical perspective, we work with people from all worldviews, and do not discriminate based on ethnicity, national origin, race, color, sex, gender, age, marital status, parental status, income, political beliefs, or disability.

EvEnTs
The Bible
The Bible, being verbally and plenary inspired by God, is the inerrant Word of God. It is the authority for all matters of life, faith, and practice (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21; 3:16).

God
God is eternal, needing no introduction (Genesis 1:1). He is beyond description or comprehension (Isaiah 55:8-9);
He is the great I AM (Exodus 3:14). There is only one God, existing in triune nature as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. They are one in essence, three in coequal and coeternal persons. The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are each distinct persons/individuals that make up the Godhead, representing His unity. They are the same in substance but distinct in subsistence (Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14).

Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is 100% man and 100% God (Philippians 2). His purpose in coming to earth was to seek and save those who are lost (Luke 19:10). Salvation was made possible through His death, burial, and resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:3-5).

The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is God (John 14:16; Romans 8:15; 1 Corinthians 6:11). He counsels, comforts, and illuminates the minds of believers (John 16:13-15; 1 Corinthians 2:10-13, 3:2). The Holy Spirit also works to convict the mind of the unbeliever (John 16:7-11; Romans 1:20).

Salvation
Salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone, not of works lest anyone should boast (John 3; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5).

Sin
All people have a sin nature, which resulted from the fall of man. We are all participants in Adam's first sin (Romans 5:12). Having a sin nature means that we have the proclivity and inclination to do those things that can in no way commend us to God (Romans 1:18-3:20; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Ephesians 4:18). Only through Jesus Christ can we be forgiven of our sins and reconciled to God.

The Church
The church is not a specified location; it is composed of the family of believers around the world of which Christ is Head (Colossians 1:18). As an organization, the church is represented in many different forms.

Sanctification
Sanctification has three aspects: positional, practical, and potential. Positionally, we are set apart from God (1 Corinthians 6:11; Hebrews 10:10). In the eyes of God, all believers are set apart in the eyes of God. Practically, we are increasingly set apart from sin in our daily lives (1 Peter 1:16). We are to continually seek the Lord to be conformed to His image day-by-day. Potential sanctification is being fully set apart when we are brought into perfect harmony with God (upon physical death). When we see Christ, we will become holy as He is (1 John 3:1-3).
