What To Expect
Welcome To Summit Crossing
Welcome to Summit Crossing Community Church! We are so glad you are here. Our vision is to see the Kingdom of Christ advance from our neighborhoods to the nations for the glory of God. We exist to make maturing and multiplying disciples who increasingly believe who they are in Christ as they intentionally endeavor to Know Jesus, Connect in gospel relationships, and Live for the King’s mission in their world.
We know that stepping into a new place for the first time can be overwhelming. From our entire team of staff and volunteers, we hope that you feel at home from the moment you arrive. Please don’t hesitate to ask our greeting team members in the green shirts for assistance. They are glad to help!
We Teach From
We believe “expositional teaching” helps us know the gospel better. The goal of expositional teaching is to draw the meaning out of the Biblical text (often verse by verse) and allow the text to shape the message. We do not believe expositional teaching is the only way to teach the Bible, but it serves as our normative method in our Sunday gatherings.
We Read From
We believe the Bible is God’s word to us and for us. It is common for us to read from the scriptures together out-loud during our gatherings. The Bible is one of the primary ways we know and love God.
We Sing From
We believe singing scripture is an important act of worship. While we may have different arrangements and melodies from week to week, our commitment to singing from scripture never changes.
We believe Communion is a time when believers can proclaim their belief in Jesus’ death and resurrection. In this time we eat bread, signifying Christ’s body broken for us, and drink the cup, signifying the New Covenant in Christ’s blood (1 Cor 11:23-32).
We believe the Church is called to share resources to further the proclamation of the gospel in our city and to the ends of the earth. This act of giving is not an obligation, but a joyful response to what God has done for us in Christ Jesus (2 Cor 9:6-15).
We believe our children should be engaged in knowing the gospel, connecting in gospel relationships, and living out the gospel in the world. We use The Gospel Project, an in-depth but age appropriate chronological curriculum that walks through the entire bible in a three year span. Children are taught using a multi-level approach of story, singing, teaching, and activities.
