For 126 years Zion Lutheran has based its beliefs on three basic principles: Scripture, faith and grace. The scripture is the only source of knowledge about God and His will for us. Grace tells us that human beings, we cannot earn God's love, forgiveness, or everlasting life. IT IS A GIFT OF HIS LOVE. Only by faith in Jesus Christ do we receive forgiveness. Through faith in Him we come into a relationship of peace with God. Word and sacrament are the means of grace for our forgiveness and salvation.


Our worship service consists of confession, hymns of praise and thanksgiving, scripture readings, prayer, and fellowship. Other everyday ministries designed to help us grow in faith and reach a personal relationship with God are available.
