About Our Church

Zion Lutheran confesses:


  • The Triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and the Gospel as the power of God for the salvation of all who believe.
  • Jesus Christ is the Word of God incarnate, through whom everything was made and through whose life, death and resurrection God fashions a new creation.
  • The proclamation of God’s message to us as both Law and Gospel is the Word of God, revealing judgment and mercy through word and deed, beginning with the Word in creation, continuing in the history of Israel, and centering in all its fullness in the person and work of Jesus Christ.
  • The canonical Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the written Word of God. Inspired by God’s Spirit speaking through their authors, they record and announce God’s revelation centering in Jesus Christ.
  • The Gospel, recorded in the Holy Scriptures and confessed in the ecumenical creeds and Lutheran confessional writings, is the power of God to create and sustain the Church for God’s mission in the world.



Zion Lutheran gives thanks to God for being a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and being in partnership with other ELCA congregations and our ecumenical partners. Zion shares full communion with the Episcopal Church, the Presbyterian Church USA, The United Church of Christ, the Reformed Church in America and the Moravian Church.
