Christ Focused, Christ Centered, Christ Learning
To be Christ focused is to see God (2 Corinthians 4:4, Colossians 1:15, Hebrews 1:3). To seek His face in our everyday lives should be every heir of grace’s desire. Our focus in worship should always be Christ Jesus. To see God is to know Jesus Christ, His only begotten Son.
At Zion, our desire is to worship God through Christ. There is only one way to worship God and Christ let us in on how it is done in John 4:24, “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” The worshipper must have a tendered heart toward God and it is through Christ that we are to worship God (John 14:6, 1 Peter 2:5, Colossians 3:17).
God’s grace through the finished work of Jesus Christ is the central theme in worship at Zion with singing songs of praise, offering public and private prayer, and the preaching of Christ and Him crucified, risen on the third day, as scriptures teaches.
We hope you will come and worship with us, soon.
Scripture teaches the child of God is in this world not of this world, meaning we are living in the here and now, but our real world is to come. Even in the desert an oasis can be found, providing shade, quenching thirst, and obtaining a bit of rest.
At Zion, we believe, we are one oasis in the desert of this world. A place a tendered heart can come and find a respite from the constant assault of this world in the hope of Christ. Gathering with those of like precious faith to worship God through the finished work of Christ Jesus, our Lord, the Builder of the church.
Zion Church is a place one can experience what Christ taught, to love one another (John 13:34, Romans 12:10, I Thessalonians 3:12). All are welcome to come and worship with us. Come and see.
Learn of Me
Often when there are heroes in our lives there is an attempt to learn everything possible about them. Who their parents were, where they come from, what did they do, how did they get started, and so on. Jesus said, “Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls (Matthew 11:29). For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light (Matthew 11:30).” Learning of Jesus causes rest to the soul. It is not difficult. Unlike the cares of this world, Christ’s yoke and burdens are steeped in the depths of love. Christ did the hard work by becoming sin and suffering death on the cross in God’s people’s place. This expression is the greatest expression of love possible (John 15:13). At Zion, this is what we believe and desire to know more about Jesus’s love for his people. Though we are not perfect, we do the best we can to walk like Jesus by learning more and more about the One declared by John the Baptist, “Behold, the Lamb of God.”
It doesn’t matter how much knowledge one has, the only thing that matters is the desire to learn more. Zion Church begins Sunday worship services at 10:15 am. On Wednesday night at 7:00 Zion holds Bible Study. Promptly ending at 8:00 pm. Come and learn about the greatest love that ever happened on earth.
As the Lord feeds us with spiritual food, the scripture give us examples of the brethren 'breaking bread' together. It is a time of fellowship, an opportunity for to catch with one another in this busy world. Zion's attempts to honor this long time scriptural tradition by eating together following the 2nd and 4th Sunday services. Visitors are welcome, in fact encouraged. This is where physical nurturing of the body of Christ begins, getting to know one another.
