And the #1 reason you might thrive at Genesis is...
How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of the messenger announcing peace, good news, salvation. (Isaiah 52:7)
Genesis revolves around Jesus Christ, continually reminded of the high adventure Christ promises all who journey with Him. We encourage growth and service in one another, circling again and again around the One who brought us this far along our respective paths, and yet has further for us to go.
We outfit disciples with an authentic sense of Christ’s challenges, as well as the amazing grace accompanying us along the Way.
Respond to the love of God in Jesus Christ by:
- Encouraging the personal spiritual journey of seeking, believing, learning, and serving according to God’s call to us in Jesus Christ.
- Entering into an ever-deepening personal relationship with the living Christ under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
- Continuing the spiritual journey together through our actions of worship, education, prayer, fellowship and mission.
