Making and Mobilizing Disciples for LIFE
The mission of Summit Life Church is to make disciples from all ethnic backgrounds, mobilizing them for LIFE. This requires a commitment to declare the truth of God’s glory through the study of His word and demonstrate the truth of God’s grace through living out His word.
We believe LIFE can be defined as:
Loving God passionately
First, we believe that God is the center of LIFE. Regardless of one’s culture or background love is what drives and motivates marriage, career, community, and hobbies. Jesus stated that the first and greatest commandment is to love God. This is why we are committed to making and mobilizing disciples who are in love with God. God’s love was demonstrated on the cross. We find LIFE when we respond to God’s love by laying our lives at the foot of His cross. Where there is love for God there is LIFE and where there is LIFE there is love for God (Matt. 22:37; John 10:10; Rom. 5:8).
Investing in others selflessly
Second, we believe out of a LIFE centered on loving God, people will intentionally and selflessly invest in others. At the center of the church’s purpose is a love for God and a love for people. After stating the greatest commandment Jesus continued stating the second greatest commandment is to love people. Our love for God is best demonstrated in our investment in people. The word investment, implies giving something of worth. We believe our love for God overflows into a love for people demanding that we give our time, treasure, and talents for the sake of others (Luke 6:27-36; 1 John 3:16; 4:7-8).
Fulfilling your call uniquely
Third, we believe each person is created uniquely by God. The gifts, talents, passions, and desires of each person is as unique as each snowflake that falls to the ground. There is not, nor will there ever be, two of you. God created you for His glory and LIFE is found when you use your gifts, talents, passions, and desires for His glory. We believe at the center of abundant LIFE is fulfilling your God given purpose which will further cultivate a love for God and a love for people (Col. 1:16; Eph. 2:10).
Embracing God’s mission completely
Lastly, we believe as each person is created uniquely by God; each person is created uniquely for God. Our unique purpose is part of a larger tapestry woven together by God’s providential hand. This purpose is realized as we embrace God’s mission in the spheres of influence He has providentially placed us in- calling others to LIFE (Matt. 28:18-20; Luke 19:10; Col. 1:18-23).
