BIG 5: VISION


FAMILY: Inspiring hope for family in today’s culture.

We believe in the family.  We stand for what the family represents. We know that when the family is stable the society is stable and when the family is whole the generations are blessed.  It is our aim to inspire families to be everything God created them to be and, as a church, we will do what we can to reinforce the family. Our heart is to heal those hurt and restore lives of those who have struggled with family.


LEGACY: Unapologetically reaching the next generation.

Summit Church is committed to the next generations.  We love young people and believe in them and their future.  We believe the Gospel is relevant to them today. It’s imperative to involve them not just in the church of tomorrow but in the church of today.  The Gospel is only one generation away from extinction.  We know that God has a purpose and destiny for each of them and it’s our goal to help them find it. We want to leave a church behind us that far supersedes the expectations.  


MESSAGE: Every member a messenger.

The message is of paramount importance.  We are highly focused on getting the message out.  Sharing the Gospel of God’s love to everyone we can.  In the church world, it’s easy for so many things to come before the message. At times, our programming can even take priority over the message itself.  We are determined to keep the message central and that every member carries the message of the Gospel.  


COMMUNITY: Leading in our community with no strings attached.

An important role for the church is to be a part of the community.  We  want community (common-Unity) in our church but we also want to lead in the community.  It seems that much of the time the church is only involved in the community when there is a direct result to the church.  It is our goal to pull up  to the community table and do our part to help in any way we can.  We want to cooperate with the community with no strings attached.


OUTREACH: We can do something.

We are committed to affecting positive change through compassion ministries to the impoverish and marginalized people of our community, area, and world.  We believe its a mandate from God to speak up for those who have no voice, to speak out for the down and out, and to stand up for those who are victimized.  (Proverbs 31:8-9 msg)

BIG 5: VALUES


GENEROUS: In all things and all ways, we are generous.  Generous with our time, talent, and treasure.

We believe in the family.  We stand for what the family represents. We know that when the family is stable the society is stable and when the family is whole the generations are blessed.  It is our aim to inspire families to be everything God created them to be and, as a church, we will do what we can to reinforce the family. Our heart is to heal those hurt and restore lives of those who have struggled with family.


TEAM: Together we are better.  We will have unity at all cost, no tolerance for division. (Psalm 133)

God commands his favor where there is unity. Jesus said that they will know that we are His by how we love each other. All of us working as one team will see the church of Jesus Christ grow.


INTENTIONAL: We live on purpose for God’s purpose, helping people find their God given purpose

We know that being calculated and deliberate with all that we are trusted with can bring about the most change in ourselves, in our community, and in the world. We live purposefully and help people connect with their purpose!


REACHING: We are reaching for responsibility,  reaching for big vision, reaching the lost, reaching in, and reaching out.

Taking on the responsibility to love people and to make a difference is to stand up for those that can’t stand, speak for those that can’t speak, and to know that we the right attitude we can do the something we can do.


POSITIVE: We have a positive attitude that allows us to see, believe in & produce the potential in people.

Living a life that sees the positive, thinks positive, and acts to make positive things happen make the lives of the people around them better.
