About Our Church
Our Mission Statement
In grateful response to God’s grace and empowered by the Holy Spirit through Word and Sacraments, we will vigorously make know the love of Jesus by word and deed within in our church, community and the world.
The members of Zion shall seek opportunities to be joyfully engaged in the proclamation of the Gospel in both word and deed in our church, community and the world.
(2 Corinthians 5:18-19)
The message of Law and Gospel is proclaimed powerfully in our church, community and the world with evangelical urgency; cultural sensitivity; Lutheran fidelity; and biblical clarity to transform lives in time for eternity.
(2 Corinthians 5:21).
The members of Zion are one people, in Christ, intentionally working together in faithfulness with mutual love and respect.
(1 Peter 2:9)
Welcome to Zion Lutheran
“Zion Lutheran’s congregation is here to bring you Good News: God loves you. God loves you so much He went to the extreme of sacrificing His Son to bring you home to Him. Every barrier that would keep you from a loving relationship with your Father is gone because of Jesus. Want to know more? You are welcome anytime to join us in worship, to hear God speak to you from his Word, and to be with your brothers and sisters in Christ.”
– Pastor Neumann
