Next Steps

The best way to grow in your relationship with Jesus is by taking your Next Steps in following Him! 

Whether it’s about partnering with God as He moves powerfully here at Genesis, sharing your story through Baptism, finding community in a Life Group, or using your unique gifts in Serving, we all have a Next Step no matter where you are on your faith journey.

Partnership

Become a partner of Genesis!

God is moving at Genesis Church and we’d like to invite you to be a part of the action by becoming a Genesis “Partner!” Genesis “Partners” are people who want to maximize their impact for God alongside of others here at Genesis Church. It’s an important milestone in your spiritual journey, as it is for everyone who calls Genesis Church their “home” church, and wants to surrender more deeply to the LORD in service.

Yes, becoming a “Partner” makes you an official member of the Genesis Church family – but it also does so much more. It will empower you to live for Christ perhaps like never before, and to serve alongside others here at Genesis Church in amazing, significant ways that you probably can’t even imagine. Your next step here at Genesis is to join God’s movement as a Genesis Church Partner.

Your journey is just beginning! At Partnership, you’ll learn more about who we are, what we believe, where we’re going – and how YOU can partner with God and Genesis Church for eternally significant, personally rewarding impact.

You may view our Partnership agreement here.

Childcare and refreshments are provided.  Any questions can be directed to info@genesisyork.com.

BAPTISM

Baptism is how we publicly acknowledge our faith in Jesus Christ. It is our obedience to what Jesus has called us to do in Acts 2:41, “Those who received the Word were baptized”.

This class will cover what to expect, how to form your testimony, and the Biblical importance of baptism.

Life groups

 

About

What is a Life Group?

Life Groups are intergenerational extended family sized groups of people who gather together regularly outside the four walls of the church. Those in Life Groups discover how to love God, care for one another, and reach out to those who do not yet know Christ.

 What happens in a Life Group?

Each gathering consists of a time of fellowship, discussion, prayer, and action. Every group discusses our weekly sermon based questions that encourage, comfort, and challenge you in your faith. Life Groups also prayerfully reach out to those who do not yet know Christ through one targeted impact project and one invite event each semester.

When and where do Life Groups gather?

Life Groups are semester based and gather together in the spring and fall. Groups gather together in homes all across York, 2-4 times per month for about 90-120 minutes.

How Do I Join a Life Group?
