Mission Statement

The Mission Statement of the Summit Interfaith Council (adopted September 18, 1997):

The Summit Interfaith Council, a coalition of leadership of the religious communities of Summit, exists to “seek the welfare of the city (Jeremiah 29:7).”  We recognize our common spiritual ground while celebrating the diversity of our traditions.  Our purpose includes developing a voice to speak to the city and its people of out of our common religious perspectives.

To do this, we will:

  1. Foster mutual understanding and respect;
  2. Seek to include all religious perspectives;
  3. Exercise stewardship through communication and the coordination of our resources; and
  4. Encourage dialogue in order to appreciate the unique contributions of various perspectives.
