About This Project
While in the Genesis Program of services and resources, your goal should be to equip yourself to move into the community as a gainfully employed, self-sufficient person, firmly grounded in the Word of God, the Bible, and established in a church where you fellowship with other Christians, to enable you to live a victorious Christian life-style, become a productive member of God’s Kingdom, and to depend on the Holy Spirit and God’s people.
We take the truths of the Bible very seriously. We believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible and inerrant Word of God; it is authoritative not only for doctrine, but also contains the principles for effective Christian living. We seek, therefore, to determine and apply Biblical principles to our lives. We also have committed ourselves to prayer for wisdom, guidance, and strength as we apply these principles to our decisions in any situation that may arise.
We, at Genesis in Milwaukee, refer to the Genesis People as a family of “returning citizens”. The family is the first covenant God made with His creation (Genesis 2). Because we realize that our behavior as residents affects others in the family, we have adopted some biblical rules and guidelines. In a family, we are bound to have some conflicts and difficulties. The benefit of a family setting, such as the Genesis Project, is that we can learn to deal with these difficulties in a loving and caring atmosphere. One important feature is that we have a high degree of accountability.
