Making Disciples of Jesus by the Grace of God

Summitview is a Fort Collins church dedicated to loving like Jesus. We’re committed to following the radical truths found in the Bible. We’re zealous to honor God and multiply his disciples. And our heart is for every person to experience God’s grace.

Loving like Jesus is an “all-in” lifestyle, but it’s worth it! Jesus’ love cost him his own life, in our place, on the cross. In his life and death was a glorious reward – to bring us to God.

Delighting in God

Word. Letting the Bible refresh our lives through preaching and teaching, everyday conversations and personal time with Jesus.

Worship. Expressing and shaping our love for God through public worship and private prayer with both thoughtful reverence and joyful affection.

Faith. Trusting God to show his power and goodness in all circumstances and believing that gaining Christ is worth losing all.

Loving One Another

Service. Reflecting the servanthood of Jesus as each member contributes time, resources and abilities to build the body up in love.

Unity. Pursuing the unity of the Spirit, recognizing that a united local church is God’s primary means for displaying the oneness of the Godhead and fulfilling the Great Commission.

Multiplying Christ Followers

Evangelism. Sharing the message of the gospel with respect, clarity and courage.

Discipleship. Helping others to trust and follow Jesus more and more with a view to pass on what they have been given.

Next Generation. Passing on faith to children, teens and young adults, while also creating a culture that values the entrustment of responsibility to the less experienced for the sake of training.

M28 Alliance

Summitview Church is part of a larger association of churches known as the M28 Alliance (M28).

M28 stands for the “Great Commission” Bible verses found in Matthew 28, which form the foundation of our Alliance. M28 is a U.S. based alliance of autonomous churches and ministries called to reach the world with the good news of Jesus Christ and to help each other disciple the nations. By God’s grace M28 churches will work together with a common bond of Christian mission and unity and will engage leaders in this mission by:

Calling Courageously – defining and upholding unapologetically Biblical standards for following Christ in our culture.
Equipping Strategically – providing resources, training and conferences.
Supporting Lovingly – creating supportive leadership community and personal coaching and encouragement.

Also within M28 churches, Summitview is united with many other churches including churches in Arizona, California, Colorado, Minnesota, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, and Utah. We join together with these churches for activities such as marriage and youth conferences, leaders’ retreats, and leadership training.
