What Do We Believe?

Summit Christian Church proclaims the love of Jesus Christ, consults the Bible for direction in life, and celebrates Communion every Sunday to remember Christ’s sacrifice for us.

Our Vision - to center our church on grace by touching lives and meeting needs for people of all races, ages, and stages of life.

Our Purpose - to turn people into followers of Jesus.

Our Desire - for every member to participate in:

  • Worshiping during Sunday morning services
  • Learning through our Life Groups
  • Serving our church and the community through one of our ministries
  • Giving our time and talents to serve Christ and others 

At Summit Christian Church, we strongly believe …

  • The Bible stands as God’s word for all. Human authors wrote it under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. The Bible serves as our source for truth and our foundation for living.  2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Psalm 119:105
  • God freely offers the gift of salvation by grace and through faith in Jesus Christ. As God's Son, we believe Jesus died on the cross and rose from the dead on the third day. Personal salvation requires us to publicly confess Jesus Christ and our faith in His sacrificial work on the cross. John 3:16; Acts 2:38; Romans 3:22-24; Ephesians 2:8-9
  • Our purpose focuses on developing fully devoted followers of Jesus. Matthew 28:19-20
  • Summit Christian tries to pattern herself after the first century Church by taking the Lord’s Supper each week and immersing new believers into Christ through Christian baptism. Acts 2:41-42
  • A nondenominational community of believers, Summit Church strives to live New Testament Christianity. We network with a fellowship of nearly 6,000 Churches of Christ across the world.
