Growing in Christ. Loving our Neighbor.

New To Zion Lutheran?

We at Zion extend a warm welcome to you. We'd love to answer any questions you may have about our church, what we believe or our community.

Who Are We?

Bible believing, Christ exalting and family friendly.

We believe the Bible is the trustworthy Word of God (Inspired, Inerrant & Infallible). And the Bible points us to Jesus, the Son of God who has redeemed sinners by His death & resurrection. We are intergenerational in our worship - all ages worship together.

The AFLC operates a two year Bible School and a seminary at its headquarters on Medicine Lake in Plymouth, MN.

The AFLC is not a synod. We at Zion Lutheran Church believe that final human authority in the church is vested in the local congregation, subject to the Word of God and the Holy Spirit. We subscribe to the Fundamental Principles of the AFLC.

We worship using traditional Lutheran liturgy and hymns. The preaching of the Word and administration of the Sacraments are central in our services.

What We Believe

Perhaps the best brief summary of Christian teaching is the Apostles Creed. Most Christians cite this creed - along with the Nicene and Athanasian Creeds - as authoritative explanations of the content of Scripture.

About Our Services

Scripture-saturated services that exalt Jesus Christ as the center of everything. You will hear Scripture read. We read the Bible corporately, and participate in confession of sin and faith that are either straight from the Bible or based on passages. You will hear a message that expresses our view that the Bible is the trustworthy, error-free Word of God. And throughout the service we will point to Jesus as the one and only way to peace with God.

Word and Sacrament

God ignites new life, distributes grace, and forgives sins through His living Word and the power of the Holy Spirit in the sacraments of Baptism and the Lord's Supper. That's why Biblical preaching and these sacraments are a central focus at Zion.

Sinners present. Sinners welcome.

There are no perfect people at Zion. We're all sinners who need a Savior. You'll fit right in! Those of us who know Jesus aren't holier-than-thou. We're just forgiven. So you'll experience mercy and grace here
