We believe that God has called Summit to be a church that makes disciples. It is our aim that all we do be measured against the words that Jesus spoke to His disciples:
All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me.
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.
And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.
Under the authority of Jesus, we must do what He’s commanded: go and make disciples. This means that we pursue relationships with people, we include them into the life of our community, we learn together, we share our lives with one another, we serve those around us, and we remember that we are not alone as we pursue God and His Kingdom.
In our pursuit of this, we have two main ministry tools: Community Worship & Community Groups.
Community Worship is our weekly gathering of the entire community of Summit on Sunday mornings to set our focus on God and find encouragement to make much of Him as we move into the week ahead.
Community Groups is our regular gatherings of smaller communities of Summit in homes to learn to love each other well through spiritual conversations, biblical study, mutual encouragement, sharing blessings and burdens, and praying with and for each other.
These two tools are used to encourage followers of Jesus and we see these as basic to the life of a disciple. These are simply beginning pieces on the journey toward being a disciple who makes disciples.
