About Northside Baptist Church
The Summit began life as a church in the early sixties under the name Homestead Heights Baptist Church. Some of our current members have been a part of the church from the beginning and could tell stories of the blessings they’ve seen and the challenges we’ve been through as a church.
In December 2001 the church voted to call J.D. Greear as our new lead pastor. J.D. had been serving as the college pastor.
Pastor J.D. immediately cast a vision for the church to engage the RDU area with the Gospel. Homestead Heights was "re-launched" as the Summit Church. With a new identity, it was time for a new beginning. Worship attendance at the time was about 400, but a goal was set to have 1,000 in worship that Easter. The members came together in a show of unified energy and focus unlike anything anyone remembered seeing before. On Easter Sunday, more than 1,100 people experienced worship at the Summit.
Within the next two years, it became clear that God had even bigger plans. We had outgrown our facility and began to look for a new location. The church sold the property it had owned since the early sixties and began meeting at Riverside High School. Attendance grew to more than 2000 per week.
