Our Beliefs

Our beliefs are based on The Holy Bible. The Bible is God’s Holy Word. It uniquely and infallibly reveals God’s plan for his people and how to live out that plan, individually and corporately. Beliefs, practices, priorities and our mission are anchored in clear biblical teachings.

The Church of Genesis is a non-denominational church. Our family is comprised of people with no church affiliation, as well as catholics and protestants. We have chosen to unite around Biblical authority. We are a congregation of people with various backgrounds, who unite around the oldest orthodox Christian doctrine in history, The Apostle’s Creed

The Apostle’s Creed:

“I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth.

And in Jesus Christ his only Son, our Lord; born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; the third day he rose from the dead; and ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

I believe In the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life ever lasting Amen.

Our Values

…lived out consistently everyday will create the fulfillment of the Genesis vision below.

• We call out to all those who feel ill-equipped, isolated, and hungry. You belong! To the skeptic, we offer our stories and our lives as fruit of Jesus’ work.

• We offer ourselves as evidence that God uses the unqualified when we are willing to take steps of faith. We equip everyday, “ordinary” people to make an impact where they live, work, play, and learn.

• We value multiplying disciples, groups, and churches everywhere.

• We value walking in the gifts and manifestations of the Holy Spirit in a “naturally supernatural” way.

• Everything that really matters gets launched with prayer, fasting and worship. As we become more aware of and anchored in the unseen, we will grow in power and authority, uniquely positioned to bring solutions and breakthroughs to the situations we face.

Our Vision

• We create cell groups & micro churches in every neighborhood in New Castle and where God calls us.

• We partner with existing Universities to offer high-quality, low cost education for leaders inside of our church and network to be licensed and commissioned as pastors, elders, etc.

• We will have a global Kingdom force of thousands of everyday disciple makers/missionaries who are leading people to Christ.  Hundreds–even thousands of baptisms a year will be our norm.

• We partner with financially intelligent people to find new ways to fund the global work of God

• We support a Global 24/7 prayer center led by prayer warriors who are fasting and praying for the work of God.  We will excel in both the “air war” and the “ground war” to see His Kingdom come

• We will gather thousands of people in Genesis from all around the world for an annual Genesis conference.  This gathering will be multi-generational and multi-cultural–every age, every tongue, every tribe, every nation.  It will be a “taste” of what worship will be like in Heaven.

• We support a global network of marketplace leaders who are planting the gospel within all seven mountains of influence.
