WHAT WE BELIEVE

1. Jesus:

is the ONLY way to the father and the ONLY door into eternal life and the ONLY way to receive forgiveness of sin.

  • The Bible teaches that there is no other way to salvation than through Jesus Christ. Jesus Himself says in John 14:6 ,"I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." He is not a way, as in one of many; He is the way, as in the one and only.

  • To receive eternal life with Christ you must be born again. (John 3:7)

  • He is the only person to have lived a perfect human life. (Hebrews 4:15)

  • He is the only sacrifice for sin. (1 John 2:2)

  • He alone fulfilled the law of the prophets. (Mathew 5:17)

  • He is the only man to have conquered death forever. (Hebrews 2:14-15)

  • He is the only mediator between God and man. ( 1 Timothy 2:5)

  • He is the only man whom God has "exalted...to the highest place." (Philippians 2:9)

  • He is the object of faith in Mathew 7:21-27.

  • His words are life. (John 6:36)

  • Those who believe in Him will have eternal life. (John 3:14-15)

  • He is the gate of the sheep. (John 10:7)

  • He is the bread of life. (John 6:35)

  • He is the resurrection. (John 11:25)

  • "Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to man kind by which we must be saved." (Acts 4:12)

  • No one but Jesus can forgive sin.

  • Eternal life in heaven is made possible only through Christ.

2. The Sanctity of the Scripture as the Foundation of our Teachings

  • 2 Timothy 3:16-17- All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and it is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. 

3. The Triune God: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit

  • 1 John 5:7- For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

  • 1 Peter 1:2 - Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied. 

  • Ephesians 4:6-There is one body and one spirit, even as ye were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, on faith, on baptism, one God and the Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

4. Baptism by Submersion

  • Matthew 28:19- Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

5. Gifts of the Spirit that we Believe are Alive and Active IN the Church Today

1 Corinthians 12:1-11

  • Wisdom

  • Knowledge 

  • Faith

  • Healing

  • Miracles

  • Prophecy 

  • Discernment of spirits

  • Speaking in tongues

  • Interpretation of tongues

6. Being filled with the Holy Spirit

  • Ephesians 5:18-Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit.

  • Acts 4:31-After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly.

  • 1 Corinthians 12:13-For we were all baptized by one Spirit so as to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.

  • Acts 9:17-Then Ananias went to the house and entered it. Placing his hands on Saul, he said, “Brother Saul, the Lord—Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you were coming here—has sent me so that you may see again and be filled with the Holy Spirit.”

  • Acts 4:31-After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly.

7. Not Getting Intoxicated with Alcohol and/or Drugs

  • Ephesians 5:18-Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit.

  • 1 Corinthians 6:10-nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

  • Proverbs 23:29-32-Who has woe? Who has sorrow? Who has strife? Who has complaints? Who has needless bruises? Who has bloodshot eyes? Those who linger over wine, who go to sample bowls of mixed wine. Do not gaze at wine when it is red, when it sparkles in the cup, when it goes down smoothly! In the end it bites like a snake and poisons like a viper.

8. The Sanctity of the Life of the Unborn 

  • Jeremiah 1:5-“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”

  • Psalm 139:13-16-For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

9. The Sanctity of Marriage Between one Man and One Woman 

  • Matthew 19:5- and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh?

  • Genesis 2:24-That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.

  • Ephesians 5:31-“For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.”

  • Romans 1:25-27-They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

MISSION

Genesis is a catalyst for improvement. We want to see positive changes in lives, families, hearts, and souls. We are a place where any person can find there purpose, marriages are restored, families are healed, and the name of Jesus is exalted. We will feed the hungry, clothe the naked, give shelter to the homeless, encourage the down hearted, and propel the believer to higher heights and greater glories. We also strive to join arm and arm with other ministries and reach our towns, states, our nation, and the world with the true and living gospel of Jesus Christ.

VISION

To be a ministry where the person without a father, the widow without a husband, the individual without a vision, and a people without direction, can find: The Father's love; The Husbands embrace; their unmistakeable purpose; and a clearly defined path.
