OUR FOCUS - NEXT STEP JOURNEY
Moving people one step closer to Jesus.
God wants to know us personally. More than just practicing religion, He wants a relationship with us. Our weekend services are where we focus on that relationship.
One of the ways that God designed for us to love people is to have people in our life to help us on the journey. Connecting with others in Genesis Small Groups is a practical and enjoyable way to find that kind of life-changing community.
God designed you to make a difference in the lives of others. When we do, the Bible tells us we will experience joy. At Genesis, we help you get connected on a serve team to use your time, talents, and gifts to love where you live.
We want to see everyone grow deeper in their relationship with God by caring well for their soul. This is the reason, we encourage and empower you through our next step journey, and soul care habits.
If people can’t see what God is doing, they stumble all over themselves; But when they attend to what he reveals, they are most blessed.
THIS IS US
Everything we do is centered, motivated, and fueled by pointing people to Jesus. It is through Jesus that sin is forgiven, people are welcomed into the family of God, and the world will one day be made new.
Jesus did not die for a building. He died and rose again for people. Our heart is for ALL people. All people are loved by Jesus. All people have a next step with Jesus. Every step matters. Every step counts.
Prayer is not a last resort, but a first priority for us. We believe that a prevailing church is a prayerful church.
We believe the greatest leadership is demonstrated through servanthood. If you’re too big to serve then you are too small to lead. Every leader is a servant first. From the parking lot to the pulpit, everyone serves. Every role is different but they are all important. We consider it a joy to serve!
For too long the church has been known by what it wants from people rather than what it wants for people. We are are FOR people. What is even better news is that God is FOR people. When it comes to leading and serving, we have a FOR mindset.
Excellence honors God and inspires people. We give our best so that all people will be encouraged, led, and inspired to take their next step with Jesus.
Generosity is about giving more than what is required. We see generosity as a privilege. We’re generous with our time, talents and treasure. We go first in our giving. God has given richly towards us, it’s our honor to give back to Him.
Worship is our life’s response to the goodness and grace of God. We worship God through singing, working, loving, stewarding, and more. Worship is a way of life for us.
