OUR VALUES

Our values shape the culture and personality of Summit. We often say that values aren’t something you see as much as something you experience. Each of our six values influence how we accomplish our vision, contributing to the unique nature of our community.

We believe the Gospel is not only expressed with words but also with action. Because we have been loved first, we will strive to relentlessly love and serve every person who walks through our doors.

[Galatians 5:13]

God gave everything for us, therefore we have nothing to lose! We have all been empowered to live generous lives, using our gifts, talents, abilities and finances to have a positive impact on our city.

[2 Corinthians 9:6-8, 1 Peter 4:10]

We invite all people to take steps toward and develop authentic relationships with other Jesus followers where they can experience both unconditional acceptance and loving accountability. We also value intentional, authentic relationships with non-Christians, and challenge all believers to love others unconditionally; no questions asked.

[Ephesians 4:15-16, Ephesians 2:19-22, 1 Thessalonians 2:8]

We are a church where it’s okay to not be okay. We believe God loves us as we are, yet His love compels us towards healing, authenticity and wholeness. We are being transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit from the inside out.

[2 Corinthians 5:17, Romans 6:4]

Everything we do comes from the reality that ‘grace changes everything.’ This means we acknowledge the grace of Jesus in our lives as individuals while simultaneously presenting others in our church and community with grace regardless of our preference.

[2 Timothy 1:9]
