Fellowship Missions is a homeless shelter serving men, women and children. Our focus is on life transformation through relationships. Our emergency shelter, addiction recovery services, and our Catalyst program are all designed to meet the physical, mental, and emotional needs of our residents so they can focus on creating a safe, healthy future for themselves. Fellowship Missions is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization and contributions to or for the ministry are tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law. We don't receive any government funding and rely solely on the generosity of individuals, foundations, churches, and businesses, as well as trusts and estate gifts.

Homelessness and addiction are not always a choice, but loving your neighbor is. Many of us have been in a time or place in life where we needed the help of others. To transform the lives of those who are homeless or suffering from addiction in our Kosciusko County community, we need to value them as equals: people who are as deserving of love as anyone and need us to give them a helping hand.

Mission statement

We provide those struggling with homelessness and addiction in our community with the hope of transformation. Our goal is not merely to provide food and shelter, but to get residents plugged into the greater Warsaw area and become self-sustaining members who enjoy making meaningful contributions to their community.

Statement of faith

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, ultimately authoritative Word of God. (II Timothy 3:15-17, II Peter 1:21).

We believe there is one God, eternally existing as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1, Deuteronomy 6:4, Matthew 28:19, John 10:30)

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is deity (John 10:33); that He was born of a virgin (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:34-35); His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15, 7:26); His Miracles (John 2:11); that we are redeemed by His atoning death through His shed blood (1 Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 2:9); that He bodily resurrected (John 11:25, 1 Corinthians 15:4); and His ascension to the right hand of the father (Mark 16:19); and His personal return to earth in power and great glory (Acts 1:11, Revelations 19:11-16)

We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of the human nature, and that all are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ, and that only by God's grace through faith alone are we saved (John 3:16-19; 5:24, Romans 3:23; 5:8-9, Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 3:5).

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; those who are saved unto the resurrection of life, and those who are not unto the resurrection of damnation (John 5:28-29). We believe the Holy Spirit unites all true believers in the Lord Jesus Christ and that together they form one body, the church.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by Whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life (Romans 8:13-14, I Corinthians 3:16, 6:19-20, Ephesians 4:30; 5:18).

We believe that we as Christians are examples of the love of God in this world. It is this (agape) love that we desire to possess and without which we have no right to call ourselves Christians (I John 4:16-17).

We believe it is the mandate of the whole Church to go into the whole world and to preach the Gospel to every living creature. (Mark 16:15, Matthew 28:19-20)
