Friendship Ministries is a not-for-profit organization that exists to help churches and organizations around the world share God’s love with people who have cognitive impairments and to enable them to become an active part of God’s family.

At Friendship Ministries 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 cognitive impairments 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.
  • Our 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.
