HISTORY AND SCOPE
The Start of Something Meaningful
The Sound Doctrine Summit was established in 2013 as a means of encouraging Christians from different parts of the country. However, after discussion and much prayer, it was decided that a second location of the Sound Doctrine Summit be implemented; therefore, the East Coast Sound Doctrine Summit was formed. The idea of the SUMMIT as it is affectionately called is designed to provide a venue for increased awareness and understanding of the scriptures centered on specific subjects. There are several components to the SUMMIT. The day is separated into sections, each with a specific purpose consisting of General Sessions, High Noon Speakers, and the Evening Sessions. There are two principles that the SUMMIT rests on. The first is “Standing on Truth” and the other; “Serving with Love.” With so much of our religious climate moving away from the absolute truth of God’s eternal and inerrant word it is our goal to encourage God’s people to trust the truth. Coupled with truth is love and our respective service. Each participant is encouraged to serve with a loving disposition based on what the scriptures actually says instead of what some say it says!
