In 2016 our church began as a prayer that birthed a dream of planting a Gospel-centered church orientated around the Great Commission. As five families relocated from five states and five local families began a Bible study in a home, it became evident God was doing something special in Summit Life Church. After outgrowing a living room in the Fall of 2017 (mostly due to the number of kids we had running around) Summit Life Church started its first ‘public’ service meeting in Blakely Hall. That first year of worship was filled with new challenges and opportunities. These opportunities led to relocating to Grand Ridge Elementary in the Fall of 2018, the purchase of a building Downtown Issaquah the Winter of 2018, and a merger in 2019 with a like-minded, Gospel-centered church that had been meeting in Eastgate Bellevue (Essential Church). While our location has changed three times in three years, our message and mission remain the same: there is LIFE and hope found in the person and work of Jesus.


Summit LIFE Church is new to downtown Issaquah and we count it a privilege to be your neighbor. We recognize life was never intended to be lived out in isolation, but in community and we are excited to be a part of this community. Jesus said that He has come to give life and give it to the fullest (John 10:10). We believe that is what He meant, that abundant life centers on the person and the work of Jesus! This work of Jesus invites us to be in genuine community with God and with each other. Summit Life Church is a place where you can join us as we explore and engage in this abundant life that Jesus offers. We are convinced that this abundant life can be found by anyone. Summit Life Church invites you to come check out what this invitation to abundant life looks like.


Regardless of whether you have a church background or not, we welcome you to join us on Sunday mornings @ 10 am. You will find that Summit Life Church is made up of real people who explore and engage in a very real faith together. Together we will explore faith, discover community, and encourage each other as we journey toward the abundant life that Jesus promised, reaching our God-given purpose and potential.
