What We Believe

What We Believe

As a member congregation of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS), the belief and teachings of Zion Lutheran Church are the same as those found in The Lutheran Confessions written in the Book of Concord.  You may access these confessions of what we believe and teach on the LCMS web site that is linked on the cross below.   A brief review is written below.   



The Sacraments - Holy Baptism and the Sacrament of the Altar.  Theses are the  Sacred Acts instituted by Jesus Christ that uses real means (water, bread, and wine) to give us the forgiveness of sins and eternal life.                                                                                      

The Trinity - One God, One Lord, and yet three distinct persons; God the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

The Scriptures - The inerrant, infallible, inspired Word of God and the only source of our Christian faith.  

Eternal Salvation - Freely given by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ. 

The Church - The sum of all true believers in Jesus Christ, also known as His bride.
