We at Zion Lutheran Church 

Believe the mission of God is to reveal  His righteousness to the world through. . His Word

  • We believe that the entire Bible is the Word of God, recorded for us by the prophets and apostles through the inspiration of God’s Holy Spirit. God reveals Himself to us through His Word and His message is clear: He is a Righteous God who hates sin, but is also a God of Love who sent Jesus, His Son, to save us from the punishment of sin.  He is One God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  He created us, redeemed us from sin, and through the work of His Holy Spirit, gives us faith to believe in Him.
  •  The Bible is the only source, foundation and guide for our Christian confession, faith and life.

We are a BIBLE-BASED congregation.

. . . His Son. . .
  • We believe that even before the foundation of the world, God had his plan to reconcile the world to Himself through Jesus Christ. The prophecies and events recorded in the Old Testament point to Jesus, God’s Son, who would become the sacrificial lamb that would atone for the sins of the world.                           Jesus:  by His life, perfectly satisfied all the demands of God’s Law…By His suffering and death on the cross, suffered the wrath of God for the sins of all people…By His resurrection from the dead, Jesus sealed His victory over sin, death, and the devil and guarantees that everyone who believes in Him has eternal life.

We are a CHRIST-CENTERED congregation.

. . . His Sacraments. . .
  • We believe that God, by the power of the Holy Spirit-calls, gathers, enlightens, and sanctifies the whole Christian church on earth, and keeps it with Jesus Christ in the one true faith.  He does this through His Word and the Sacraments of Baptism, The Lord’s Supper and Holy Absolution, the means of His grace, by which He comes to His people to forgive sins and to create and nourish saving faith.

We are a SACRAMENTAL congregation.

. . . His People. . .
  • We believe, therefore we speak!  We believe and publicly confess that we are sinful and in need of a Savior and that Jesus, God’s Son, is that Savior who forgives our sins.  We reverently worship God with Orders of Service that are based on the Scriptures, placing a strong emphasis on the proclamation of the Gospel message.

We are a CONFESSIONAL congregation.

. . . His Unconditional Love. . .
  •  Jesus said, “As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you.  Now remain in my love.  If you obey my commands, you will live in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father’s commands and remain in His love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.  Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.”  John 15:10-13
  • We believe that we can experience no greater joy than to be showing love to others in response to God’s Love for us.

We are a GRACE-MOTIVATED congregation.

. . . His Radiant Light. . .
  • “Our message is not about ourselves.                           It is about Jesus Christ as the Lord.                           We are your servants for His sake.                           We are His servants because the same God who said that light should shine out of darkness has given us light. For that reason we bring to light the knowledge about God’s glory which shines from Christ’s face.”                           2 Corinthians 4:5-6

 

We are a MISSION-MINDED congregation 

taking seriously the commission to bring the

light of Christ to the world.                             

Mission of Zion Lutheran church:
God has called us to know Christ Jesus, as our Savior and Lord. . . and to make Him known to everyone we interact with.
To Know Christ…          …is to have an intimate relationship with Him.
  • This is possible through the work of God’s Holy spirit, who calls us to faith in God’s Son, Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, through God’s Word (Bible) and Sacraments (Baptism, Lord’s Supper & Absolution) thereby making us members of God’s family and children of the Heavenly Father.  This relationship is strengthened when we read and study God’s Word daily because:
  • In God’s Word, we learn of His great love for us in the promises of a Savior’s coming and the fulfillment of those promises in God’s own Son, Jesus Christ–His birth, life on earth, death and resurrection for the forgiveness of our sins, and His ascension into heaven.  Through faith in Jesus Christ we have the assurance of a heavenly home prepared us.
  • In God’s Word, Jesus promises us that He will hear our prayers and never leave nor forsake those who call on His name.
  • In God’s Word, we are encouraged, as members of His adopted family, to gather together regularly:  to hear his word proclaimed, to receive forgiveness for our sins through the Sacraments , and to be built up by the spiritual gifts of fellow Christians.
To Make Him Known…   …is to share Jesus Christ, God’s gift of LOVE to everyone.
  • What we have been given is a GIFT that is to be shared with everyone with whom we come in contact:  our friends, our relatives, our co-workers, and our neighbors. This gift was given so that ALL PEOPLE may KNOW Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord, receive from Him the forgiveness of their sins and become a part of His adopted family.
The Significance of the Name – ZION
  • The word Zion comes from the Old Testament and refers to the city of David where the temple of the Lord was to be built.  We read in the Psalms, references to Zion as “a holy hill” “the resting place of God,” “the Lord’s sanctuary,” “the house of the Lord” Psalm 2, 48, 50, 76.  The New Testament refers to Zion as the Holy City of God where all will come and worship Jesus, “The Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world” John 1:29; Revelation 5:12; 14:1-7.
  • The word Zion reminds us that we will someday be in heaven in the company of the saints, praising our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.                           However, we don’t have to wait until then to praise Him.  Every time we gather together to worship the Lord, we can be sure that He is present.                           Jesus has given us this promise, “Where two or three have come together in My name, I am there among them.Matthew 18:20
