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.
