Summary

At Summit Bible Church, we are convinced that what we believe about God and His written revelation, the Bible, will determine how we live our lives and where we spend eternity. You can view the full description of our convictions in detail under each tab above, but here is a summary:

  1. We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God, sufficient and authoritative for all matters of faith, life, and godliness.

  2. We believe that there is one God, eternally existing in three distinct persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

  3. We believe that Jesus Christ is fully man and fully God, that He lived a perfect life, died a substitutionary death on the cross for the sins of the world, was buried and on the third day rose from the dead, conquering death, and that He is now seated at the right hand of God.

  4. We believe that all men are sinners, falling short of the glory of God, and that they are in need of salvation from sin and its consequences.

  5. We believe that salvation is by God's grace, mercy, and faith alone, through the preaching of the gospel, repentance, and the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit.

  6. We believe that every believer is indwelt by the Holy Spirit and is able, by God's grace, to walk in newness of life, obeying Jesus and thus becoming more like Him.

  7. We believe that salvation includes regeneration, which produces increasing obedience and transformation into the image of Jesus.

  8. We believe in the future resurrection of those who have died, the saved to eternal life and the unsaved to eternal punishment.

  9. We believe in the importance of the local church as the body of Christ, and the believer's responsibility to be involved through active membership and faithful disciple-making.

  10. We believe in the second bodily coming of Jesus to set up a literal kingdom on earth, which will last one thousand years and will be followed by the eternal state in the new creation.
