Summit Christian College, an institution of higher learning, educates leaders for Christian service.
Summit Christian College exists to support the churches’ efforts to create an ongoing, ever increasing stream of well-prepared, well-educated Christian leaders who are ready and able to pursue the high call of Christian service wherever our Lord may lead.
The following core values serve as guiding principles in the fulfillment of our mission to educate leaders for Christian service.
Student Learning: We believe in a quality education based on the inspired truth of Scripture that includes general, Biblical, and ministry studies. This involves the acquisition of knowledge, practical skills and experience.
Student Personal Development: We believe that Biblical higher education involves the development of the whole person. We therefore seek to stimulate mental, physical, and spiritual growth that results in Christian maturity.
Kingdom Service: We believe that every member of the body of Christ is a minister. Therefore we desire that the education received at Summit Christian College enable every student to impact the world for Christ primarily in vocational ministry, but also in volunteer ministries.
Statement of Faith
We believe the entire Bible to be the uniquely inspired, authoritative Word of God. Consequently, we believe that no man-made creed or statement of faith can fully express all the truths of the Bible, and therefore should not be made binding on God’s people. Nevertheless, in order to communicate to those who desire to know where we stand on certain issues, we present the following points, recognizing that they are bound to be incomplete and inexact.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus is the incarnate Son of God, fully God and fully man. We believe that he died on the cross for our sins, but was raised from the dead, and has ascended to the right hand of the Father. We believe that he is the only head of the church, and that he will return at God’s appointed time, which will result in the resurrection to eternal life of the saved, and of eternal condemnation for the lost.
We believe that because of what Christ has done, God summons everyone to faithful submission to Christ, repentance from sin, confession of Jesus as Lord, and on that basis, immersion into Christ.
We believe in the presence of the Holy Spirit in the church and in each individual Christian, which empowers them to live a godly life and to carry out the total ministry of the church.
We believe that the church of Christ on earth is by God’s intention essentially one, and that it is made up of all those who express a genuine faith in Christ and are obedient to him.
