4th Sunday of the month
God loves us all as His image bearers.
Is to share God’s love with people who have intellectual disability and to enable them to become an active part of God’s family. Jesus said, "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." John 10:10.
What We Believe
Society and the church often ignore the spiritual needs of people who have intellectual disabilities.
At Friendship Ministries, however, we believe that:
- Everyone is created in God’s image and is deserving of love and justice—both in our society and in our churches. People who have intellectual disabilities deserve a chance to know about God and feel God’s love. They also deserve to be treated with respect, and to have friendships with others who know and love God.
- Redemption is a gift to all. It's a gift from God that is not dependent on a certain level of intelligence.
- The church is complete only when it includes all of God’s children and when all people are seen as equals—in God’s eyes and in our own eyes.
