The Genesis Way
I am a Genesis athlete.
I am created in the image of God
to glorify Him on and off the field.
Jesus Christ is the model of the best player.
I put the team above myself
and keep a humble attitude.
I put on love for others as a teammate
and a competitor.
I honor God’s authority
and those He has put over me.
I respect my coaches, teammates,
competitors, and officials.
I give my best
in practice and competition.
How I compete is what matters most
so that the results of my efforts
bring honor to God.
I am a Champion for Christ.
Creeds were created within the church to provide a short summary of beliefs and biblical principles that guide actions. Specifically, the Nicene Creed and the Apostle’s Creed are commonly referenced by many churches. The purpose of a creed is to provide:
• A summary of truths which guide actions
• A norm for Christian understanding
We realize in Genesis we needed something similar but rather than use a church or religious term like “The Genesis Creed” we felt a better term is “The Genesis Way” - with the same purpose – a summary of biblical truths that guide actions. The Genesis Way is a core part of our culture that provides guidance for Genesis athletes actions. It is shown below.
