Who We Are
Zion Lutheran Church is one of over 6000 local congregrations of the Lutheran Church- Missouri Synod.
Being "Lutheran," we accept and teach Bible-based teachings of Martin Luther that inspired the reformation of the Christian Church in the 16th century. These teachings can be summarized in three short phrases: Grace alone, Scripture alone, Faith alone.
We are saved only by God's grace. God loved us so much that even though we are do not deserve his love, he sent Jesus, His Son to pay the price of our sin and freely offer us the gift of eternal life with Him.
We believe that the Bible is God's inerrant and infallible Word, in which He reveals His Law and His Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ. It is the sole rule and norm for Christian doctrine.
By His suffering and death as the substitute for all people of all time, Jesus purchased and won forgiveness and eternal life for them. Those who hear this Good News and believe it have the eternal life that it offers. God creates faith in Christ and gives people forgiveness through Him.
The word "Synod" in The Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod comes from the Greek words that mean "walking together." We voluntarily choose to belong to the Synod,and with all the other congregations of this church body, we hold to a shared confession of Jesus Christ as taught in Holy Scripture and the Lutheran Confessions.
