WHO ARE WE

A CHURCH STARTNG ONLNE
GEN217CHURCH will begin as an Online chuch to be able to minister to the needs of people anywhere in the world.
Once we have a physical building for the Center we will still be an Online Mininstry Equipping Center to be able to keep connected to the global community and our Discipleship Groups & Ministry Equipping School students who are not geo located where we are..
A CHURCH THAT ONLY
APPEALS TO CERTAIN PEOPLE
GEN217CHURCH will only appeal to a select group of people and isn’t for everyone as well as all churches aren’t.
A CHURCH FOCUSED ON
BUILDING PEOPLE NOT BUILDINGS
GEN217CHURCH is focused on building people and not buildings. We desire to build people who can be sent out to go into the world to preach and demonstrate the Gospel of the Kingdom.
When and if it becomes possible and or God's will we will always strive to rent or purchase existing buildings for Church use as well as use peoples homes for all discipleship and pastoral ministry to our members.
Other than staff and minstry expenses we would rather put our money into expanding the Kingdom of God and helping the poor through local ministry and international missions.
A CHURCH WHOSE
MEMBERS ARE THE CHURCH
GEN217CHURCH's members don't go to church.
We are the Church and we meet in any venue that can hold us and in Discipleship Groups in homes.
A CHURCH OF HIS
PRESENCE & SUSTAINED REVIVAL
GEN217CHURCH is a ministry with its main goal and focus on welcoming and maintaining the Presence of God to come and rest in a sustained outpouring of the Holy Spirit and fire in revival in all that we do until Jesus returns.
It is only in His manifest Presence, Power, Fire & Glory with the intense fiery preaching of His Word that livss are touched, healed, delivered and transformed into all He's called them to be.
A NEW TESTAMENT
APOSTOLIC LED CHURCH
GEN217CHURCH is a non-denominational New Testament, Spirit filled, Book of Acts, small groups-based Church with apostolic oversite and the fivefold ministries functioning.
We are a small group-based ministry made up of small groups called Discipleship Groups that will use a G12.3 leadership system. We are not a ministry with groups as an extra ministry. Discipleship Groups are the ministry to our members.
A PRAYING &
GEN217CHURCH is a praying Church that will pray and intercede for God’s sustained Presence and revival and for what concerns God locally, nationally, and globally. We will pray and intercede for our members and their families, for those that Jesus wants to reach through us and for all the ministries and member’s lives and ministries to be successful and fruitful.
AN EVANGELISTIC CHURCH
GEN217CHURCH is an evangelistic and mercy ministry church that will have many local outreaches and missions works globally.
A DISCIPLE MAKING CHURCH
GEN217CHURCH is a ministry that’s focused on saving souls and making disciples that make disciples who will be trained and equipped to carry and manifest the presence, life, and ministry of Jesus to the world around them and beyond.
A CHURCH WITH EVERY
GEN217CHURCH is a ministry that looks at every member as having God given gifts, callings, abilities, and ministries at different levels with Jesus and we will attempt to help them be fulfilled
A CHURCH FOR ALL
AGES & BACKGROUNDS
GEN217CHURCH is a ministry with a desire to reach children, youth, young adults, young families, the young at heart, those young in the Lord, pre-Christians, and the hurting, broken, sick, oppressed, and poor of the world locally and globally.
A CHURCH THAT OBEYS
THE GREAT COMMISSION
GEN217CHURCH is a ministry that believes and follows what Jesus said in the New Testament and the great commission. He said the works He did we can do also. He said in His name we can cast out devils, heal the sick, speak in other tongues. He's given us authority over all the power of the devil and nothing by any means will hurt us. He said we were to preach, teach and demonstrate the Kingdom of God. He said to cleanse the lepers and raise the dead. He came to baptize His people in the Holy Spirit and fire and gave us the Gifts of the Spirit to minister to others.
We teach and do what He did and said by the Word of God and the Spirit as a New Testament ministry
A CHURCH THAT EQUIPS
& SENDS OUT LEADERS
GEN217CHURCH is a ministry that places most of the responsibility to ministering to our members through our Discipleship Groups. As a New Testament Book of Acts Apostolic ministry, the senior leaders train, equip and give continual oversight to the Discipleship Group leaders to minister to the needs of their Groups. As the Groups multiply and the need arises there will be pastors that will oversee Groups and their leaders in geographical areas and regions.
We don't want a pastoral dependent ministry but a church dependent on their personal relationship with Jesus, the Holy Spirit, Word of God and each other.
Our GEN217MinistryEquippingSchool will train and equip our future leaders for the Center and ministry expansion, locally, nationally an globally
When there are corporate celebration gatherings there will be Ministry Teams at the front for ministry. Once there is a building for the church then there will be Ministry Teams there for weekly ministry sessions.
A CHURCH THAT
REACHES LOCALLY & GLOBLLY
GEN217CHURCH simply put, is a ministry for those who want to make Jesus Lord and lay down their lives to be saved, healed, delivered, baptized in the Holy Spirit and Fire, be radically transformed by the Presence of God, and prepared to minister in their church and communities locally and globally. It is not a place for pew sitting, spectating or programs. We believe everybody has a ministry and we prepare them to minister to their families, friends, neighbors, and coworkers.
