The Watchman Fellowship is, according to its website, an independent, nondenominational Christian research and apologetics ministry focusing on new religious movements, cults, the occult and the New Age. It was founded in 1979 and is based in Arlington, Texas[1][2] with offices in six states and one in Romania.[2][3]

The mission of the Watchman Fellowship has three primary goals: to educate the community, to equip the church, and to evangelize the cults.[4] The Fellowship encourages traditional Christians to gather accurate information about groups that deviate from "essential Christian doctrines."[5] Its president is James Walker.[6]

Rather than objecting to paranormal activity on skeptical grounds, the Watchman Fellowship claims that spirits may be real and malevolent.[7]
