Worship of God
We hold with high value the corporate worship of God and all His attributes, and purposefully strive to make a distinction between authentic worship and mere entertainment . (1 Chron. 16:29; Ps. 95:6 Ps. 100; Ps. 22:22; Ps. 35:18 and Amos 5:21-24)
We hold with high value the process of encouraging believers to mature in their growth as followers of Christ in such a way that it changes the character of their daily life . (Heb. 10:24-25; Heb. 3:13; Heb. 13:20-21; Phil. 1:27, Titus 2:2-7, Rom. 12:2, Eph. 4:14-16, and Col. 3:16)
Building the Family
We hold with high value the responsibility given to the leadership of each household to instruct, guide, and lead their families in worship and in the knowledge of the Word of God. We believe that the Church and the Family are institutions ordained by God and should compliment each other rather than compete with each other . (Deut.6:4-9; 1 Tim. 3:4; Col. 3:18-21 and Eph. 2:19-22)
We hold with high value the preaching and application of the entire Word of God because of its relevance to our everyday lives. (2 Tim. 4:2; Acts 20:27 and Eph. 2:20)
Inspiration and Inerrancy of Scripture
We hold with high value the belief and conviction that the scripture is inerrant in its original languages and that its careful translation into our own language has preserved that inerrant quality. (2 Pet. 1:20-21; 2 Tim. 3:16-17; John 10:34-35; John 14:26; John 17:14 & 17; Ps. 119:89, 142, 151 & 160; Rev. 21:5; Rev. 22-6; 1 Cor. 2:13; 1 Cor 14:37; 1 Thess. 2:13 and Eph. 2:20)
We hold with high value the act of prayer for the purpose of worship, intercession, thanksgiving, and petition. Prayer is a high honor, our means of communication with our Father, and is received through the intercessory work of the Holy Spirit and the advocacy of His Son, Jesus Christ. (1 Tim. 2:1-2; Rom. 8:26-27; 1 John 2:1-2 and 1 Thess5:17)
Missions – Church Planting
We hold with high value the model of missions taught in the New Testament. We are commanded to spread the Gospel first to “Jerusalem, then to Judea, Samaria and then the uttermost parts of the earth.” We believe we are commanded to spread the Gospel to our own families, to our community, our country and ultimately the world. As part of our mission outreach, we believe that new churches should be planted, whether here or abroad. (Matt. 28:18-20; Mark. 16:15 and Acts 1:8)
We hold with high value the belief that the Word of God is relevant to all generations. Therefore, we believe that the ministry of the Church includes equipping families and individuals to understand the Word of God and apply it to their everyday lives in a way that is relevant, meaningful, and meets the challenges of living in the world. (Rom. 12:1-2, John 17:15-19, and 1 Peter 2:11-17)
We hold with high value the commission to serve our Lord with all that we are, all that we have, and all that we do for the glory of God. We believe that Scripture teaches us, by the example of Jesus Christ and His disciples, that we are to go out into the community to serve by acts of kindness, and thus leave everywhere the fragrance and testimony of Christ. (Gal. 5:13; Gal. 6:9-10; 1 Pet. 2:16; 1 Pet 4:10-11; Matt. 24:45-47; Rom. 12:1; Rom. 15:1-3; Rom. 12:9-13; Mark 10:42-45, John 13:1-17, 2 Cor. 2:14-16, and Phil. 2:5-8)
The Purpose of the ministry at Generations is to glorify God as a fellowship of believers reflecting the New Testament roots of the church community found in Acts 2: 42-47. To that end, we are striving to be a Christ-centered, family-integrated church; a community where every member, being precious and uniquely designed by God, uses his or her gifts to help the body be unified in God’s divine purpose. With this in mind, we seek to apply the unchanging truths found in God’s Word to our everyday lives in such a way that it changes how we live and interact with individuals in our family, workplace and community.
Empowering individuals to live out God’s plan for their life!
