Welcome to Zion

Reverend  George Borghardt IIIZion Ev. Lutheran Church is a member congregation of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. We believe that Jesus of Nazareth, the Son of God, was born of the Virgin Mary, lived a perfect life, and died on the Cross for the sins of the whole world. And after three days, this same Jesus rose again from the dead.

We also confess that Holy Scripture proclaims salvation comes to us solely by Jesus’s death and resurrection on the Cross – without any merit, work, or worthiness in us. Jesus’s work – not ours. Freely given, freely received by faith, as a gift. Jesus alone saves – by grace alone, received by faith alone, and all of this comes from Scripture alone. This is the historic Lutheran Faith confessed at Zion.

Because this Good News is central to our Christian faith, Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church is an "evangelical" congregation in the historical sense of the word. This Gospel message is proclaimed in all we believe, teach, and confess. We believe that we can’t come to God on our own – rather, He comes to us in His gifts. He washes away all of our sins in Holy Baptism. He forgives all of our sinfuldeeds in HIs Word. And in the Holy Supper of our Lord, Jesus gives to us His Body to eat and His Blood to drink for the remission of all our sins.

We're excited that the Lord has brought you to visit with us today. Please let us know how we may serve you. We’d love to have you part of our family.

We preach Christ and Him crucified...

- 1 Corinthians 1:23
