Summary of Summit Community Church's Beliefs

Most simply, Summit Community Church is a Christian, Evangelical, Baptist, Congregational church.  Our statement of faith was derived from the 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith, and first published by a committee of the Baptist Convention and was named the New Hampshire Confession 1833.  The confession was reissued with minor changes in 1853 by J. Newton Brown of the American Baptist Publication Society.  It is one of the most widely used Baptist statements of faith in America.  We use the 1853 statement and have modified Article XV “Of the Christian Sabbath.” We also subscribe to the Baptist Faith & Message 2000, the Chicago Statement of Biblical Inerrancy, the Nashville Statement on Biblical Sexuality, the Dallas Statement on Social Justice, and the Danver’s Statement on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood.
