F.A.Q. About Us
Q: Was this church affiliated with "North Summit Church" or "Mission: Andover?" Why the name changes?
A: Please see Our History to learn more. A
Q: Why do you have a "special focus" on equipping men?
A: When you make a man Biblically focused, you make a better world. Our culture is filled with absent fathers, angry and passive husbands, and churches are lacking men. But when a man is brought out of a life of sin, you see more present fathers, more respectable men, and more world changers for Christ. We have a God who heals and empowers us to be who we are called to be, and we want men to own that.
Q: What do you believe about women in leadership?
A: Let them lead! We want all women who feel called to use their gifts to have an equal opportunity to lead within our community. Like men, we want women to be empowered to be who God created them to be. When women serve and lead in the church, they gain much personal growth and become more confident individuals.
Q: What do you believe about politics?
A: We are a politically diverse community that does not endorse any political parties. Titus 3:9 says, "But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because these are unprofitable and useless.” Rather, we pray for our leaders (Hebrews 13:7) no matter what political party they are. It doesn't matter who sits in the White House, because we know who sits on the throne.
Q: What do you believe about homosexuality?
A: We would love to have an open, loving conversation about this sensitive subject, so please reach out to us personally if you want us to elaborate further. In short, we have witnessed a loud, war-like behavior between “Christians” and the LGBTQ community. We speak out to end this injustice and welcome the homosexual community, just as we would anyone else, into our church with loving arms. However, we affirm the Biblical definition of marriage between one man and one woman. We realize this may come across as a contradicting statement and make members of the LGBTQ community feel hurt and isolated. We hope and pray for reconciliation in this. We pray that, together, we can encounter Christ and be in community with one another. The LGBTQ community should feel welcome, just as anyone else, to serve encounter and worship Christ.
