WATER BAPTISM:

The act of water baptism is an important step in your spiritual journey. We believe that baptism is an outward expression of the grace of God in the life of a believer, and is symbolic of salvation, not a part of it. Therefore, we believe that anyone professing a personal faith in Jesus should be baptized as an adult.

If you would like to follow the Lord in water baptism, please complete the below form and mail or email to the address listed below.

BABY DEDICATION: 

Baby dedication is a public commitment you make before God, your church, and your family. The dedication service provides you, the parent(s), an opportunity to express publically your desire to lead and spiritually nurture your child in cooperation with the Holy Spirit, so your child will develop a desire to love God and love others.

If you would like to dedicate your child to the Lord, please complete the below form and mail or email to Genesis Church at the address listed below.

MEMBERSHIP: 

There are several reasons why a believer should become a member:

Commitment

You are members of God’s very own family . . . and you belong in God’s household with every other Christian.” (Ephesians 2:19 TLB)

You become a “Christian” by committing yourself to Christ, but you become a “church member” by committing to Christians.

Membership is a step of spiritual growth rather than an organizational ritual.  By becoming a member, you are therefore indicating spiritual growth.  Commitment is always a sign of growth.

 The difference between dating and marriage is COMMITMENT. Becoming a members shows character  in an uncommitted world.

Accountability

The key to a believer’s successful commitment lies in ACCOUNTABILITY to the local church and its leadership.  (Hebrews 13:17; Matthew 18:15-17; 1 Thessalonians 5:12,13).  By the loving support, encouragement, and challenge of the leadership and congregation, we maintain and grow in our Christian commitment.

So then, you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are citizens with the saints and members of the household of God . . . Christ Jesus himself as the cornerstone. . .” Ephesians 2:19-20 NRSV

”if one member suffers, all suffer together with it; if one member is honored, all rejoice together with it”. 1 Corinthians 12:26 NRSV

Relationship

We complement one another with our different and unique talents and abilities as we join together.  Each one of us has a vital role within the body, and together we are able to accomplish great things for the glory of God.  “So we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.” (Romans 12:5).

So membership is not a mark of ownership, but an expression of relationship.  Belonging means being committed, being responsible and being free to extend and receive the blessing of our great God.
