DNA (BELIEFS)

The core values and beliefs of Encounter Generation, Inc. are our DNA. DNA contains the genetic code of an organism. So, it largely determines what we look like, who we are and what we can do. In the human body, DNA has two strands. So, playing off this metaphor, our values and beliefs are the two strands that determine what our organism (EGI) looks like and does. The beliefs are doctrine. The values are passions that flow from doctrine but are elements of life as a ministry that we particularly feel called to emphasize and therefore, will make us unique in some way. These are our beliefs. Please click OUR VALUES on the menu to see them.

  • We Believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. (Colossians 1:15-19; Luke 1:26-28; Hebrews 4:15; The Gospels; Romans 3:22-26; Matthew 28:6; Luke 24:50-52; Colossians 3:1; Mark 16:19; Matthew 16:27)
