“The Church joyfully proclaims the good news that we may be delivered from sin to a new life in Christ.”
These basic beliefs represent what we hold to be foundational to biblical teaching. They are the roots of our church which ground our identity and fuel our mission.
The gospel is the good news that God has made good on His promise to be “God with us.” Despite our sinful rebellion and hopeless inability to find peace, God has sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to bear our sin through his death on the cross. Through Jesus’ death and resurrection God has removed the sting of death, reconciling us to himself and transforming our hearts through the power of the Holy Spirit. For all those that place faith in Jesus and follow Him forever, there is life everlasting in relationship with God.
We believe that Christians can experience a deeper level of life in which there is victory over sin, power to witness and serve, and a richer fellowship with God, all through the infilling of the Holy Spirit.
Zion Baptist Church exists to serve as an instrument for advancing the kingdom of God through the preaching and teaching of the gospel. It is our mission at Zion Baptist Church to be a worshiping, witnessing, and welcoming congregation committed to a spirit of praise of the Almighty God through Jesus Christ; Christian education for maturation in the faith; and community ministry for the promotion of peace and justice in every aspect of life. Our goal is that people are touched and transformed by the liberating power of God’s Holy Spirit.
