VISION & MISSION
The Genesis Project exists to equip and empower everyday disciples to bridge the gap between culture and Christ.
Everything we do as an organization is centered around this guiding statement. While we believe that the Church (every follower of Jesus throughout all of time and in all places) has its own clear mission, we believe that each expression of that greater community adopts a manner of implementation that fits within their own context.
In America, we believe that there exists an overwhelming gap between our culture and the person of Jesus. It's not just a relational gap in the sense that many people in our country reject the invitation to know Christ relationally and personally. It's a gap that comes from a series of misunderstandings both inside and outside of Christianity in America.
Often our culture appropriates the teachings of Jesus, removed from the broader message he proclaimed, to prop up popular worldviews or causes. But beyond that, even what is termed "Christianity" in our day and age is often so steeped in the rituals and dogma of particular denominations, that we've lost sight at times of who Jesus is, and what He came to accomplish and establish.
Our goal at The Genesis Project, and in fact the very reason that we planted this church, is to bridge that gap by engaging culture, living transparent and questionable lives, and answering questions as the opportunity arrives whether it takes place on a Sunday morning, over a mid-week cup of coffee, or around a dinner table. We aim to help people understand the teachings of Jesus and their relevancy to modern life, and we invite them to become his disciples, or apprentices, in the everyday - beyond the religious events and gatherings that saturate our American culture.
We arrive at our goal when we see the gap bridged, disciples made, and we successfully impart the sense that each Jesus-follower is sent by Him into the spaces they occupy in life - home, work, and play - to bridge the gap for others, and to help them become His disciples as well.
