Genesis

Our Beliefs

In essential beliefs—we have unity. In nonessential beliefs—we have liberty. In all our beliefs—we show charity.

God

We believe that there is only one true and Almighty GOD. We believe that this GOD manifested Himself in flesh and walked in the world for 33-1/2 years and was known by the name Jesus, and is Messiah. We believe that this GOD wants to redeem everyone.

The Bible

We believe that the Bible is the Word of GOD. We believe that GOD inspired anointed individuals to write what GOD had given to them. We believe that the Text is GOD-breathed, and is applicable to every society and culture in every time.

Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ is God robed in flesh, born of a virgin; that he lived a sinless life, was crucified on Calvary for our sins, and bodily rose from the grave; and that he has been exalted to the throne of God where He is the only mediator between God and man.  We believe that through his death and life we have personal salvation and power for victorious living.

Baptism

We believe that the only way to enter into the Kingdom of GOD is through Divine Adoption, known as baptism; both Spirit-baptism and water-baptism. It is through this two-fold baptism that we are adopted into the Blood-line of Jesus Messiah. In order to be Spirit-baptized we must first die out to our sins through repentance, then be buried into the name of Jesus for the remission of our sins by being fully immersed in water baptism, then we are reborn into His more abundant life. Just as in natural birth, when we are reborn, their is a sound that signifies life. As we are filled with GOD’s Spirit we begin to speak with other tongues as the Spirit speaks through us. We believe that both Spirit-baptism and water-baptism are necessary to obtain full salvation.

Religion vs. Church

We don’t believe that GOD ever intended for anyone to be dedicated to a religion nor a religious structure. This is why we use the word that Jesus used in Matthew when He was referring to the Kingdom that He came to build. He used the word ekklesia [ek-klay-see-ah] which refers to a community of people gathered together, dedicated to a common cause or theme. Our common cause is the mission of Jesus Christ and our theme is that Jesus loves everyone regardless of their status in life, their life choices, their nationality or their gender. We are a community of believers who only want to show the world Jesus. We are a community in the biblical definition.

The Second Coming

We believe in the pre-millennial return of Jesus Christ to receive his bride, the church, unto Himself.  At his coming, we believe the dead in Christ will be resurrected from the grave.  We believe in Christ's millennial reign upon the earth.
