A Place of New Beginnings

At Genesis Worship Center, it is important to us that you experience the genuine love and presence of God in the most powerful way you can imagine! It is OUR responsibility to “clear the way” for you to experience bible based teaching, great worship and a loving congregation. Under the leadership of Pastor George Matthews, our ministry has grown above and beyond! We know obedience to the word works! We have seen lives transformed and by the giving of tithes and offerings, God has taken us from humble beginnings and moved us forward to complete a full church renovation! Please explore our website and social media feeds through Facebook and Twitter. We pray that you not only come to visit Genesis but, EXPERIENCE GENESIS!

Our History

February 2003, Pastor George Matthews accepted the call by God to not only Pastor but, also establish Genesis Worship Center. He knew this was not an easy task, the Bay Area was full of thriving churches and ministries but, He KNEW he was called. In obedience and by faith he began to hold Sunday services and Wednesday evening worship services at various locations.
