What Zion Lutheran Believes


Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church, founded in 1837, is a member congregation of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod (LCMS). We believe, teach, and confess the doctrine of the evangelical faith as it is taught by the Holy Scriptures and faithfully confessed in the Book of Concord of 1580, which includes Luther's Small Catechism. Every worship services at Zion is centered around the Lutheran Service Book.


Therefore we believe in the Triune God: God the Father, creator of all that exists; Jesus Christ His only Son, who for us men and for our salvation, became man to suffer and die for the sins of all people and to rise to life again in the ultimate victory over sin, death, and Satan, salvation is through Christ alone; and the Holy Spirit, who creates faith through hearing God's Word and rightly receiving His Holy Sacraments. The three persons of the Trinity are coequal and coeternal, three persons, one God.


Consequently we are committed to the pure preaching of God’s Word and the right administration of the Holy Sacraments, catechesis of all people in the Christian faith, and liturgical worship consistent with our Lutheran heritage. We are an evangelical and orthodox Lutheran congregation, proclaiming Jesus Christ crucified, risen, and reigning for the salvation of the entire world.
