This article has begun with curiosity to define ``the image of God``in theological and psychological perspectives. In defining the image of God in theological views, we have encountered various opinions. But most of definitions can be deducted to two types: immanence and transcendence. In the history of Christianity most churches have interested in God`s transcendence rather than immanence in humans. Not considering about the immanence of God in human mind has brought the loss of balanced Christian perspectives on theology and psychology. Not only this, but also the loss and uninteresting of this perspective has appeared the confused identity and definition of what is pastoral counseling. Theologian Paul Tillich and psychologist Carl Jung were interested in defining the image of God. Tillich`s theological methodology is called `correlational methodology` which is focused on human contexts. Thus, in order to understand well regarding humans, he deeply concerns about psychology. And his concern regarding psychology brings the definition of ``the centered self.`` Carl Jung dialogues with theological themes, especially the image of God in psychological perspectives. His perspective on this issue is based on ``the archetypal image of God.`` He insists that we cannot understand the image of God without knowing the archetypal image of God. Both scholars` perspectives are strange to Christian counseling in our contexts, but these will provide us with dynamic interpretations and theological challenges to define the identity of pastoral counseling.
