About Us

...helping people follow Jesus wholeheartedly...
Sundays at 10:00am

At Genesis Church, we’re somewhat casual in our approach to church, but we are passionate about our faith in Jesus. Our core message is simple. You can begin different and live different through Jesus Christ! We see Jesus as the One who empowers us everyday through His favor, hope and peace. He gives us wisdom and manifests His significance through us! We know that Jesus turns the usual, (and in some cases, the unusual) into the extraordinary. Our core message is simple. You can begin different and live different through Jesus Christ! At Genesis, we want you to laugh, to smile, to relax and to grow. We want you to feel welcomed, but even more than that, we want you to experience positive life change! So if you’re ready to begin different and live different…or if you want to live life with greater definition, Join us this weekend at Genesis Church!
