The homeless and hurting depend on Fairhaven to meet their physical and spiritual needs ... many have no one else. They come here looking for a helping hand and a loving heart.

Mission statement

To provide for the physical and spiritual needs of disadvantaged men, women, and children of northern Kentucky.

Statement of faith

We believe in one God, eternally existing Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the virgin birth and absolute Deity of Jesus Christ.

We believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross as a substitutionary sacrifice for our sins and that His shed blood is the only means for the remission of sins.

We believe that the Scripture of the Old and New Testaments are the inspired Word of God and that they are the supreme, final and only authority of faith and life.

We believe that man was created by God in God's image; he sinned as recorded in Genesis, causing physical and spiritual death.

We believe sin entered into the world by Adam and as a result, the entire human race is born with a sinful nature and spiritually dead.

We believe that when a person receives by faith the Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit regenerates that person into the family of God.

We believe in a future Heaven for the saved and that it is not obtained as the result of good works, but we believe in the maintenance of good works, and holy living as a result of salvation.
