What's Happening at Genesis Church-01

 SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE

Starting a new school year can be stressful to many who are burdened by the cost of supplies.  One way we can help people find their way back to God is by showing them that they matter – to us and to God.  It may seem small, but starting the school year with the necessary supplies can provide students dignity when they have all they need to be successful, just like the other kids in their class.

CARMEL CAMPUS SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE

At CARMEL we are partnering with Merciful H.E.L.P Center to provide them with their greatest need for all their “Tools for School” supply drive.  Please donate any quantity of the following items; no contribution is too big or too small.  Click here for the list.

NOBLESVILLE CAMPUS SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE
At Noblesville we are partnering with the Noblesville Schools to provide backpacks filled with their classes supplies for Kindergarten – High School students.

WORSHIP NIGHT

We are excited to host an all-church Worship Night on July 8th at 6:30 pm!

We often think of “worship” as the time in our Sunday celebrations when we play music and sing songs together.  Yes, that is part of worship, but it’s so much more than that.  Come to our next Worship Night where our goal will be to pursue Jesus through a time of prayer, praise, thanksgiving, and yes, lots of singing! Your entire family is encouraged to attend and participate.  Childcare will be available for children 5 years old and younger.   You won’t want to miss this special evening of worship!

JULY 8th – NOBLESVILLE CAMPUS  – 6:30 pm

We believe that baptism is a wonderful and powerful event that should be celebrated, and we would love to celebrate this event with you! Our next baptism services are 9.9.18!!

Want to Know More About Baptism?

We have a podcast called “Baptism – Going Public”  from 9.7.14 that you can listen to that will help you understand the heart behind the biblical practice of baptism. Below are some scriptures that teach about what baptism is, and why we should be baptized. We’d encourage you to read and pray about that if you are considering baptism. We are always available to visit with you about it!

 

What is Baptism?

When you come to faith in Christ, an inner change takes place. Baptism is the outward symbol of the inward commitment you have made to Jesus Christ. It is the first step of obedience in your journey with Jesus and a public statement of your faith. The waters of baptism do not save you. The Bible tells us we are saved by the mercy and grace of God. The Bible makes it very clear that baptism is a part of our commitment to Christ.

Additional commitments when you become a Christian include:

– Realizing your need for Christ (Romans 3:23; 6:23)

– Putting your faith in Christ (John 3:16)

– Turning from your sins (Acts 2:38)

– Verbalizing your trust and commitment by confessing Christ (Romans 10:9)

 

 Why Be Baptized?

The New Testament offers the following reasons to be baptized:

– To follow Christ’s example (Mark 1:9)

– To follow Christ’s commandment (Matthew 28:19)

– To demonstrate your faith (Acts 18:8)

 

 When Should You Be Baptized?

Baptism is for believers. A believer is someone who has decided to trust Christ alone for salvation. Believers realize that their sin separates them from God and that only Christ’s death on the cross bridges the gap between them and God.

If you have come to that point in your spiritual journey, then you are ready to be baptized. It is your way of demonstrating the internal miracle, in an external way, to the outside world. As soon as you have decided to fully receive Christ into your life and have begun walking in a new direction, you should be baptized! (Acts 8:35-38).
