About us

Genesis Covenant Church is a new church start whose inaugural service began on Sunday, February 7, 2021.

Senior Pastor Robert Earl Slade and Pastor Daryl Riddick, the founding pastors, believe that God was tugging on both of their hearts to do ministry that would provide hope to His people during a pandemic and thereafter. We believe that it is not by happenstance that two pastors have come together to do kingdom building. After much prayer and discernment, God spoke and put before us a vision to offer worship experiences and create ministries that would cause people to become disciples of Jesus Christ to transform the world. Genesis means beginning, origin, or formation of something; therefore, Genesis suggests this is something new and refreshing created by God. Covenant means an agreement, and we have committed, vowed, and promised God that we would be obedient to His will and seek guidance from the Holy Spirit. We have a covenant to worship together in unity, in spirit, in love, and in truth.

Online Church

Genesis Covenant Church is a non-denominational, faith-bearing church. We put our faith and trust in God in all that we do, exalting and worshipping Him. We believe in the Holy Trinity—The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as we create a climate of acceptance and Agape love. We embrace the scripture from Ephesians 4: 5-6, “One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.” We profess to be a Bible-teaching church, believing the Bible is without error or fault and should not be compromised. The word of God is preached with hopes that the people of God will live out the scriptures. We believe that the church’s doors should be open to all people, regardless of race, gender, sex, age, national origin, political affiliation, physical or mental disability. Our goal is for every person entering our doors to worship God freely and without judgment.


Online Church

Due to the pandemic, our worship services are held via Zoom and Facebook Live (https://facebook.com/genesiscovenantchurch) every Sunday at 10:00 a.m. eastern. Each Sunday, we also upload the service onto YouTube, located at Genesis Covenant Church

– YouTube. With the doors of most churches not opening soon, a building is not a defining moment for us currently. However, if a miracle were to occur today, we have been blessed with a worship space at 14400 Old Mill Road, Upper Marlboro, MD 20772. We believe that God will provide a central location for all His people interested in becoming a part of this fellowship. We are aggressively seeking a place in the Clinton, Brandywine, Fort Washington area or vicinity.

As we evolve into what God wants us to become, we pray that the Lord will lead you to become a part of this family and discover what God is calling you to do. We believe that every member of this fellowship should feel a part of who we are because of our actions and signatures of love.

We are here to serve the community-at-large and be the conduit between the church and its citizens, enjoying fellowship while being purposeful in the lives of those in need. We welcome you to join us!
