Summit is an evangelical, non-denominational Christian ministry. Although Summit contains a wide variety of Christian beliefs among its staff and faculty, the ministry does not hold positions on many of the doctrinal or theological debates that take place within the church. While we do believe that these issues are significant, our primary concerns are with the effects that false ideologies are having on the world and the body of believers.
As a statement of faith, Summit agrees with and holds to the Apostles’ Creed:
[We] believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
[We] believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven, he is seated at the right hand of the Father, and he will come again to judge the living and the dead.
[We] believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic [universal] church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. AMEN.
