The Mission of Zion Lutheran Church is to reach out to the community as we embrace our fellow members, building on the strength of our heritage in the true Word of God.  To this end, Zion's members see themselves as loving Christians called by God to serve Him according to His purpose.

You have come to Mount Zion, to the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living God. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. Heb. 12:22-23

About Us

As a member of the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod (LCMS), Zion Lutheran Church holds to the teachings of the Holy Scriptures (the Bible) and confesses the faith revealed in it. The Book of Concord, and the Small Catechism contained in it, offers an excellent summary of the Bible's teaching, but the following is a brief description of the Good News presented in the Scriptures

There is only one true God. In the Scriptures, this one true God has revealed Himself to be one God in three persons–the Holy Trinity: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

Our Communion Practice: What to Expect

Because communing together in the Holy Supper of Christ's body and blood presupposes unity in Christ's doctrine, we cannot invite all guests to the Lord's Table. Zion practices closed Communion to preserve our doctrinal unity in this Holy Meal in which Christ gives His body and blood for the forgiveness of sins.

Zion is …

  • A Confessional Church: Our teaching, recorded in the 1580 Book of Concord, does not change with the times or audience, but remains faithful to Scripture alone, which is God’s own Word. Martin Luther’s Small Catechism
  • A Scriptural Church: The sole fountain and source of our teaching is God’s written, inspired, and inerrant Word, the Bible.
  • A Doctrinal Church: God’s Word, the condemning Law and the forgiving Gospel, are our main power and focus, not human emotion, excitement, or activity.
  • A Liturgical Church: We use traditional liturgical services and hymns, old and new, from a hymnal, providing an orderly, structured worship service that connects us with past and future generations of Christians.
  • An Educating, Instructing Church: The preaching and teaching of Christ’s forgiving, renewing Word is paramount. We have weekly adult Bible study …
  • A Musical Church: Besides striving to have excellence in congregational singing and services, other musical avenues include: instrumentalists to adorn the public services; adult choir …
  • A Family Church: The God-given vocations of husband, wife, father, mother, son and daughter are brought to the forefront as God’s will and the place to exercise Christian love first and foremost. Children are treasured as God’s gift of new life, along with gift of marriage, God’s one flesh union between husband and wife.
  • A Forgiving Church: Every sinner who repents of sin is forgiven in the name of Christ. We do preach the Law, which is God’s Word against sin and disobedience, and also apply church discipline to unrepentant sinners, but only in order to lead to repentance, and ultimately the forgiveness which Christ won on the cross for the world. The Gospel of Christ, which opens up heaven to sinners, is the paramount Word of our Lord and the only message which gives eternal life in this world.
